Cosplay: Rouge the Bat [Sonic Heroes] – Hyper Japan July ’16

Here be a brief set of making-of photos from my upcoming ‘Rouge the Bat’ crossplay.

Then I broke some of the costume and had to rethink. The result is below. The pic on the far right is by Donald Manning.

  1. Awesome costume, Matt! It catches my attention because Sonic Heroes was one of my favorite Sonic games. A buddy and I always go back and forth on our favorite of the “bad” Sonic games. He says Shadow the Hedgehog was better, but I think Heroes tops it. Anyways, I’m biased towards this costume design.

    1. Thank ye kindly amigo. I must admit, the head on this was great fun to build. Oddly, I never got around to playing either Heroes or Shadow. Both were always on my list, I just never had the money at the right time. The real shame is that Sonic has been so hit and miss with game quality over the last decade.
