It’s a magical world we live in, people. Where once our brilliant crayon drawings were condemned to live forever two-dimensionally on a piece of dog-eared construction paper, now they can be given the life they deserve — either as an endearingly grotesque plush doll or, with this new service, an awesome dress.
Sure, you could get stuff printed on the front of a CafePress shirt or something, but be honest: that’s weak sauce. Look at the dress! Full bleed, knees to shoulders. The same design appears on the back, too.
All you do is pick a size, download and print the template, then color away. When you’re done — and by you, I mean your child, of course — you take a picture of the finished design and upload it — voila! You should receive your finished dress in a couple weeks. I love this cat on a scooter one. I’d rock that in a hot heartbeat.
You can also add some doll-sized dresses to your cart that will fit a Barbie, Ken, or compatible format. Picture This isn’t associated with Mattel or anything, though — I asked, because I was suspicious.
Newberry also mentioned that we can expect more designs if the dress takes off.
“In essence, this is a proof of concept,” she wrote. “We focused on something really targeted (girls dresses, sizes 2-12), but absolutely have growth plans if this baseline concept proves to have a place in the market. The response from our launch this morning has been incredibly positive!”
