Welcome to the World of Cosplay: A blog about cosplay. How it is done and tips for getting started with cosplaying.
One of the most commonly asked questions about starting cosplay is how do you pick a character? I always say that you should pick a character that you can identify with, something about them whether it be their personality or physical features that remind you of yourself.
Picking a favorite character can be difficult, especially if you are just starting out and don’t know too many characters yet. If this is the case, I suggest going to conventions or looking up various cosplay websites like Cosplay.com or DeviantArt.com to get a better idea of who’s out there. You can also look at your own wardrobe to see what kind of clothes you have that might lend themselves toward cosplays.
Cosplay, a portmanteau of the words “costume play”, is an activity and performance art in which participants called cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture centered on role play. A broader use of the term “cosplay” applies to any costumed role play in venues apart from the stage, regardless of the cultural context.
Favorite sources include manga and anime, comic books and cartoons, video games, and live-action films and television series. Any entity from the real or virtual world that lends itself to dramatic interpretation may be taken up as a subject. Inanimate objects are given anthropomorphic forms and it is not unusual to see genders switched, with women playing male roles and vice versa. There is also a subset of cosplay culture centered around sex appeal, with cosplayers specifically choosing characters noted for their attractiveness or revealing costumes.
The rapid growth in the number of people cosplaying as a hobby since 1990 has made the phenomenon a significant aspect of popular culture in Japan and some other parts of Asia and in the Western world. Cosplay events are common features of fan conventions and there are also dedicated conventions and local and international competitions, as well as social networks, websites and other forms
Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the most famous characters in video game history. His popularity has spanned many decades and generations. One of the iconic scenes from Sonic’s early days was his famous pose on the beach with his arm raised in a fist.
For this cosplay, we wanted to recreate that image. We also wanted it to be something fun for kids so we figured that adding a foam surfboard would make it even more fun! A few years ago, I made a Sonic the Hedgehog costume for my son when he was 6 years old. He wore it in several parades and it was always a big hit! The costume cost less than $20 and took about 4 hours to make. The hardest part about making this costume is getting all of those blue spikes just right on your headpiece! If you don’t want to spend too much time on them, there are some great pre-made ones available online at places like Etsy or Amazon Prime Day Deals (which might be over by now).
The only thing left after that is figuring out how best to attach them onto your headpiece without making it look too bulky or heavy looking when worn as a hat! Here’s how we did ours…
The Sonic the Hedgehog costume is one of the most popular costumes in the world. So many people love this video game character and want to create their own version of this costume. One of the main reasons why people like the Sonic the Hedgehog costume is the fact that it is so recognizable and popular.
Another reason why people love this costume is that it is a very easy costume to make. All you need is some fabric, a needle and thread, a pair of scissors and some glue. You will also need a little bit of imagination as well. With these items you can make your very own Sonic the Hedgehog costume in no time at all!
My first thoughts on Sonic the Hedgehog is that it’s a game, but they also have TV shows as well. Like many other people who play this game, I grew up watching Sonic and his friends.
I have just recently bought myself a Sonic the Hedgehog costume and I must say it looks really nice. This is one of my favorite costumes to wear when I go to a convention. It’s comfortable, easy to wear and very easy to put on.
I think what makes me love this costume so much is that it has all the colors that you would expect from a real hedgehog, including the blue fur, black eyes and yellow teeth. The only thing I didn’t like about it was that it was too big for my body type but I guess that can be fixed with some alterations.
I am so excited to release my new Sonic the Hedgehog Cosplay!! I have been working on this costume for awhile and it has been a fun grind. I decided to use athletics, sports apparel as a base for all of the costumes. Who better to emulate than an athlete? You will notice the red and white shoes are Nike Vapor Max Plus, the shirt is Under Armour with custom sublimation, and the shorts are Nike Pro Combat (custom sublimated too). The gloves were custom made by me. These are just test shots, but I will be adding more photos soon!
The costume of Sonic the Hedgehog is a very easy costume to make. You could make it at home without having to buy anything. If you have an old pair of blue pants and a long sleeve shirt then you can easily turn that into your own Sonic the Hedgehog costume!
But if you don’t have any blue clothes lying around then don’t worry because I have found some great costumes for sale online. Just click on the images below to get taken to where you can buy your very own Sonic the Hedgehog costume!
