Knuckles was the third head I started. (Amy and Tails being first and Second) - I made the base head the usual way and instead of attaching the spikes I just furred the head so he was spikeless. After this I worked out how many spikes I probably will need and settled for 5. I then cut spikes out and sewn them up before stuffing them with small chopped up pieces of foam and then pinned them into place until I was happy and then hand stitched them onto the head. This took a while as the foam bits like to fall out >3<
Once this was done I attached his fimo nose and his eyes and the head was complete C8

The shoes where made with Ugg style boots bought at Primark and covered in 5 layers of paint. This works well for Sonic shoes.
I then made the 'Lego blocks' Out of Grey craft foam and stitched into place as well at stitching the green rim around the top of the folded over boot.

The gloves where made by me cutting out some foam the rough shape as my hand and then put white fabric big enough to have that foam inside. After the 'mitten' shape was made I then cut out some rounded triangles stitched up one side before stuffing them and then sewn onto the gloves to make his pointy knuckles.

The body suit was the easiest part other than my needle randomly snapping in three parts and tried to kill me O.o - I'sh alive though! XD
Once I did that I hand sewn the white fluff he has on his chest and the tail and tada Knuckles is complete!

Head (Posted 21st January 2011)

Here is the finished head. After a small panic attack finding blue red and white paint splodges over one of the spikes mum managed to clean it off. Which surprised me because it's acrylic paint........ =/ the magic of quick thinking and Ariel stain remover! XD

Head WIP 2 (Posted 19th January 2011)

Here is the head covered slightly. Still doesn't make much sense but I still have all of his spikes to attach and eyes and nose and mouth ^0^

Foam base (Posted 19th January 2011)

Here is the foam base. As you can tell it doesn't look anything like anything at the mo xD
But after 4-5 Hours and a lot of hurt fingers we have this C8

OMG (Posted 17th January 2011)

I just realised there are no journals for Knuckles XD
Anyway The shoes are 80% complete just need the green sections done and to somehow attach my 'lego blocks' XD
Hope they don't come off before masquerade =/
Anyway the head base is nearly complete just need to shove some foam for his nose and then his head is ready to be furred up. The spikes will be sewn on instead of foaming and furring like ears as it where ^-^ hope all goes well.
