Description
A Commission for Mr Joshua For the Sonic Group Mez is running

Sonic - Mez
Tails - Zedela
Knuckles - Darkiekun (AKA Me)
Amy - Harajuku-Guy


----

Amy was the first head made in my mission to make all four mascot suits.
And surprisingly it was also the first head I actually liked.
Their was a small issue with her 'hair spikes' But I was able to hand stitch them together instead of gluing. The eye lashes are painted on as I thought it would look a lot nicer than material.

The Dress was made separate from the bottoms as I thought it would be easier this way than a full suit for Amy. The dress has a pink zip down the pink back for easy access.
The gloves I hated but made them. The yellow bracelets where a cheep £2 for two in Primark and panted yellow. These sit nicely just over the top of the edge of the gloves and are over the top in thickness like Amy has.
The Tail is just a pin on as we are borrowing Zedela's bloomers so Amy isn't pantieless. We didn't want to put a hole in them so we decided to attach the tail with a safety pin

The shoes took the longest as they where painted in acrylic paint. I believe all Sonic Characters have very shiny shoes and painting them in Acrylic paint seems to achieve this.

The hammer was made by recycling my old Lavi hammer. It was made with some card on each end and then paper mached all over and panted the right colours.
