Just to show you one of the cosplays I have been working on – Sonic The Hedgehog.
Sonic the Hedgehog games were a staple of my childhood, and the cartoon was one of my favourite things to watch. Sonic had the whole ‘attitude’ that was so popular at the time, and I wanted to be him.
Well, this is about as close as I’m going to get.
I did consider painting myself blue, but previous experience with a Mystique cosplay taught me to avoid that territory unless absolutely necessary! Plus, I think the result may have been a bit creepy to be honest.
The boots are actually boot covers, I looked into buying or making real shoes but didn’t have the bucks! I am happy with how these turned out though, and would suggest boot covers for anyone who is low on funds.
I also considered wearing a full body leotard or morph suit, but didn’t like the results. As Sonic has his little hedgehog belly out, I decided a crop top was the way to go.
The jacket, again, was a choice. It was either wear a hat, style my hair in spikes or make a cropped jacket. I had seen this look in other cosplays and really liked it so sent some ideas to a seamstress who did an amazing job!
Please let me know what you think so far, or of any improvements! I’m working on a foam gold ring right now as a prop and then hopefully I will have some professional photos rather than just Myspace style selfies ;).
And who knows, maybe a ‘Robotnik in his bikini’ cosplay next? I kid.
