It all started with this sweatshirt design, the signature half Goodbunny. The Goodbunnies are human in bunny suits. Some people wear the costumes for fun, most people, however, put on the attire out of necessity; it is part of the requirements in this world. While they all look identical on the outside, inside everyone is different, or so they thought. If you wear the suit for too long, your body will melt away, eventually turning into cotton candy that fills the bunny. But hey, at least you are sweet and fluffy!
I knew what I'm looking for in a sweatshirt, but I had no idea how to translate it into writing. Fortunately, my friend Reni who majored in fashion design came to the rescue! She taught me how to measure and create a spec sheet. I've learned so much that day <3
I wanted the shirt to be high quality with a clean, contemporary look. I chose the same French Terry cotton as the previous "What the Eyes Don't See" Hoodie. The fabric is smooth, breathable, and very soft. It is also a deep, rich black - a perfect canvas for the white screenprints.
One thing I dislike about most sweatshirts are the tight bands in the bottom; they tend to ride up into a bulky, muffin-top. Therefore I added two slits on the sides, so the fabric will fall straight against the body, creating a clean silhouette.

So many details & numbers
Countless spec sheets and Adobe software later, the design was sent to production! And so the waiting game began.
