    Buy a plain red scarf. Once again, you might be able to find scarves at a department store, but if you can't find them buy some red fabric, cut it into a shape of a scarf, and use that.

    Buy a pink skirt. If you can't find pink or the right kind of pink, buy a white skirt and some pink dye and dye it.

    Buy a pair of black knee-high socks, or as long as the socks reach over the boots. For the boots, you'll probably have to really search a lot or improvise. If you want the boots to be a bright pink, rain boots are the way to go! They're pretty, shiny, and waterproof!

    Dawn's hat is a white baggie with a pink Pokémon symbol on the front. You should be able to find a plain white baggie at a thrift store. As for the pink Pokémon symbol, you can try finding a Pokéball stencil, placing it in the center of the baggie, and coloring it in with pink permanent marker or fabric paint. You could also just paint or draw it by hand.

    Wear hair accessories. Dawn wears yellow barrettes, so these are probably pretty easy to find. If you can't find any, you can use yellow hair chalk to resemble them.

    Get the Poketch. It might be possible to purchase these online. If not, a red watch will do or buy a red sports watch. You could also make your own Poketch, but chances are that it might break.

Method 2
FireRed and LeafGreen Dawn

  1. 1
    Buy a low cut light blue tank-top, and a black undershirt. You could find these at nearly any store. If you really want to get into it, try get a shade close to "Colombia Blue".
  2. 2
    Buy a pink skirt. The design isn't very different from Dawn's anime appearance, except that the skirt has large pleats.
  3. 3
    Dawn wears baggy, blue socks in the game. They are the same shade as her tank-top. She also wears white sneakers with one pink horizontal stripe on each shoe. You can easily find blue socks at a regular store. For the sneakers, you can buy plain white sneakers and paint a pink horizontal stripe with shoe paint.
  4. 4
    The hat that Dawn wears in the game appears to be most similar to a "bucket hat". It is white, with a pink half moon shape, rotated 90 degrees. You could make or buy a white hat and sew the design on or paint it on.
  5. 5
    Purchase a plain, yellow messenger bag as Dawn's accessory.

Warnings

  • If you're sewing, be careful to not poke yourself.
