Description
I'd like to do this cosplay as she's yet another Sonic girl I'd like to cosplay.

Officially started 05/03/2013 when I got the gloves and skirt.

This was a good cosplay to wear since it was generally comfortable! My socks slipped down so the circles of the socks where the knees are supposed to be are actually lower than they should. Also the belt needs to be a bit tighter.

--WIG--
I got the pink wig from eBay seller zysysy2012, I trimmed the back to the length I wanted, and styled the front with Got2Be Spray/Gel and a hairdryer. For the ears I sewed together cream fabric on pink fabric, and sealed the bottom with wire inside to support the ears up. I then attached them to the wig with safety pins.

--RED SHIRT--
I bought the red shirt from eBay seller i-candyfashion, cut off and hemmed the arms.

--MEDALLION--
The medallion is made out of foam board, painted white with a few layers, with yellow string threaded through the top.

--PURPLE GLOVES--
The gloves were bought from eBay seller bobob_uk.

--BELT--
To create the belt, I measured and cut out the main section from yellow pleather(fake leather). I then cut out and stuck on an oval shape of white pleather. Then I secured the belt round the waist with velcro.

--PURPLE SKIRT--
The skirt was bought from eBay seller rogue-accessories.

--SOCKS--
The red socks were bought from eBay seller homi-uk. While wearing them I painted on purple fabric paint, using masking tape as a guide for the stripe, and kept them on until the paint had dried.

--BOOTS--
The purple boots were bought from eBay seller fashionaddict811. I then added red fabric, glueing it to the sole, and used a curved needle to stitch it on.

Wig Finished (Posted 6th May 2013)

I forgot to get a photo, but I trimmed the wig down a bit and re-styled the front. I don't think it's my best work, or if it's the quality of the wig, but I'll probably have to do a bit more to it the night before I wear it.

Wig Progress (Posted 30th April 2013)

I made the ears out of cream and pink fabric, and sealing the shape over wire. I then attached them to the wig with safety pins.

I've almost finished the costume, and I've taken preview photos, but I've found I need to trim and re-style the wig so it's shorter.

Wig Started (Posted 26th April 2013)

I got the pink wig from eBay seller zysysy2012, and I trimmed it down and styled it with Got2Be spray/gel and hairdryer. There were 2 wigs before this one I wanted which were already punk-ish styled, but the 1st one got detained at their post office, and the 2nd they said they didn't have pink in stock.

I've also cut out the ears which are ready to be sewn together.

Belt Finished (Posted 29th March 2013)

I measured the lengths and widths, and cut out the main section from yellow pleather. I then cut out the oval shape from white pleather and stuck it on. Then I marked and added velcro to secure the belt round the waist.

Shirt Finished (Posted 29th March 2013)

I couldn't find a red shirt with both turtle neck and sleeveless, so I bought a long-sleeved one from eBay seller i-candyfashion, and I cut off and hemmed the arms.

Boots Finished (Posted 23rd March 2013)

The boots were bought from eBay seller fashionaddict811.

I pinned on some red fabric, cut away the excess, glued the fabric to the sole, and used a curved needle to stitch it on.

Socks Finished (Posted 23rd March 2013)

I got the red socks from eBay seller homi-uk.

I wore them over spare tights and painted on purple fabric paint while they were stretched. I used masking tape to help keep the stripe straight. I then kept them on until the paint had dried.

I recommend wearing more than 1 pair of tights as I still had some paint go through to my skin.

Medallion Finished (Posted 20th March 2013)

The medallion's made out of foam board, and I painted it white with a few layers on both sides, since I couldn't find metallic/glass paint.

When the paint was dry, I used a sewing needle to thread yellow string though the top. It secures at the back with a double knot.
