I created this costume for my son. We ordered a few mascot to promote our business and they were way to big for him He wanted Sonic but it was over $200 online. I decided to try and make it myself. This is the first costume I have made from scratch. My husband and I own a Halloween store so I have been working on more homemade items. www.JJsHalloweenoutlet.com

Step 1: Step 1 to making the mascot head

Picture of Step 1 to making the mascot head
I used a cheap punch balloon and covered in with paper mache. I did this over several days; allowing it to completely dry in between layers I used a fan to speed up the process.. Then after popping the balloon I cut the hole in the bottom for your head. I drew the face on with marker just to get a good idea of where everything would be. I also cut out the eyes where you would be looking out of.

can you do a tails version so i can make this for my bf
jleighkrupp (author)  violetkitty2 years ago
I'm actually in the middle of a couple projects now. But tails can be built a lot luke Sonic. He doesnt have the spike which makes it easier. He also has 2 long tales. Same face shape and eyes. His snout is furrier and his color is a mustard yellow. Good luck!!
i have always been a fan of sonic the hedgehog

Thanks, there's a ton of things I would have done different but my son was impressed so that's good enough for me lol
Cool suit, he inspired me to do the same in anything like that. You may have to make an order.))))
