Cosplay Of The Week: Sonic The Hedgehog

Hey All!

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.

Cosplay Round Up

I haven’t been cosplaying for very long, but just wanted to show you guys what I have done so far and the small progresses I have made. My first costume needed a lot of help from others, compared to my last which I did on my own. Plus it’s nice to have some photos every now and then instead of me just waffling on like an idiot.

I hope you enjoy the gallery! Continue reading
