The costume is a mascot style Sonic the Hedgehog. I have spent hours looking at others Sonic costumes and panicked a little looking at all the awesome Japanese and American ones. Yes I know they where official probably very highly expensive ones but still. Everyone knows Sonic even none cosplayers so a lot of people expect Sonic to look like Sonic.

So this was rising the bar more as everyone knows what Sonic looks like. This really put me off the head as I was too scared to see it fail. After a few people moaning for me to just do it I got in the mood and forced myself to start the head!
I saw a video online of quick random snaps of how someone else did it. Their way was different to mine and they have a really awesome head but I swapped a few methods and ended up with a rather good head (Or so I think) After all you will always find someone better than you in the world so it's only normal ^-^

The hardiest part on Sonic is getting the spikes done! Each spike takes about an hour of hand stitching and their is six spikes on the head. Each spike has a foam spike inside and stuffed with small foam pieces to give it more strength and to give the spikes more shape. The nose is made from black Fimo and covered in varnish so he can have a shiny nose. This has a small hole in as it will be attached with hot glue and the stitched on for more support as his nose isn't a flat nose. More of a sausage shape.

The Major hard part is Gloves. I seriously Hate making these things ¬3¬
But hey I shall suffer and make them XD

First Journal

This is my first one here woop xD I left Sonic to last because I'm scared of it XD
I know I'll end up falling out with it so leave it till last so the others don't get effected >D Great plan by me *pose*
I have 90% Done his shoes just needs the white strip on the top and the yellow buckles attaching. I also have the 'skin' sleeves cut out ready for when I make the body suit. That's the easy part. The head how ever......not so easy ^^;
I have 4 meters of blue fleece. The same amount I bought for Knuckles. I still have left overs from Knuckles which in theory means I should have plenty for Sonic's big spiky head and stuff but I always panic XD. Mez is skinnier than me so he probably will need less fabric for his body suit anyway.
So here we go I'm going to start that head tonight! Or day which ever I get time too lol
