Ivysaur: Ivysaur is a lovely sort of plant pokemon that is uglier than Bulbasaur, yet cuter than Venusaur. It is 002 and comes with vine-age. I stuck with a plant sort of motif, using similar patterns for the skirt as Ivysaur has leaves on it's back. I hid a flower (blatantly, and not very nicely) at the back. There are a lot of silly little details about this dress that I don't like... in fact, I'm mostly proud of how I drew the model.

Venusaur: Quite an ugly dinosaur-type Pokemon that also looks a little like a toad. Not the biggest fan of this dress, although that may only be because I colored it poorly. Very silky and flowy... The shoes look really stupid, and would be a different color in real life.
Charmander: Ah, Charmander. Definitely the coolest of the starters. I did a lovely little minidress that would be considered skanky in most circles, but whatevs. Haters gon' hate. I used gold sequins on gold mesh instead of a flame pattern, as those are considered tacky in most circles... but no judgement. If you can rock a flame pattern, congratulations. You are obviously very attractive.
Charmeleon: 2nd up in the Flame Pokemon category. He has a lovely large awkward horn that I turned into a similarly large awkward shoulder thing. I hated this one until I colored it, but can deal with it now. Same gold sequins = flames thing going on, and the red wrappy style kind of symbolizes a tail.
Charizard: RAWR EVERYONE'S FAVORITE! Also a hippie dress... because I love Bohemian things. And moar sequins. Charizard also has awkward horns that result in awkward sculptural elements.

Squirtle: Oh my god this is a long post.... Anyhoo, Squirtle here (Cute little turtle pokemon) is wearing probably the most fantastic shoes ever and I need to one day make them tangible because they're of my favorite painting ever! And if you've never seen The Great Wave, then that is sad. Google it. Now. Seriously... A friend pointed out to me that the shawl thing wouldn't work so great in the back cause of the poofy skirt, so for the record, I would probably redesign it as split down the middle with trains draping off to either side.

Wartortle: Considerably more badass than Squirtle, it makes a very fluffy and lame dress. Eh. I honestly can't see anyone wearing it, but whatever. The colors are also considerably brighter than I would like... see I shy away from color. I like black and brown. I shock people when I wear primary colors... that happens maybe once a year. Also the shoes don't match.

Blastoise: I never like Blastoise....... Animals can't grow guns off their back. Ridiculous... So little nods to his guns in the skirt and arm things. Someone I know described it as a mix between steampunk and medieval... sure, why not. I was thinking more gypsy.

|Fig 9. Caterpie dress|
Metapod: Also a shitty pokemon. It seriously cannot do anything except Harden (hehe..), unless you catch a caterpie and train it to evolve... which no one likes doing cause Caterpie sucks. Metapod is one of my favorite dresses... I think it turned out pretty cool. And everything is one color... seriously, wtf Metapod. Why are you so boring?

Butterfree: At last, Caterpie's prettiest final evolution, Butterfree. I was never a big fan of Butterfree, actually... until the sentimental episode (single tear). I decided to be very non-creative with the skirt, but the eyeball things on the back I believe are interesting, and would probably look very stupid off of a runway. I should sell one to Lady Gaga...
