It was a lot of fun to put this together. It was a birthday present for my granddaughter.
First, I got a nice blue waistcoat at the local Mr Formal outlet store for cheap. It had self-fabric covered buttons and fake pockets.
I installed real pockets (how can you put a watch in a fake pocket?) and some shiny metal buttons. I got a Pikachu pocket watch on eBay. Forgot to take any pictures of it.
I decided the best way to adapt Ash's hat was a stretchy band of crushed velour and a patch of satin with the "L" symbol painted on with acrylic paint.
Pikachu needed a waistcoat too, and I relied on description as I didn't have the little fellow in front of me. (His chain is just a chain, no watch!)
Sadly, it didn't quite fit
I posted about the pokeball on the Tactile section.
Here's Steampunk Ash Ketchum!
