Cutest Sonic and Tails Homemade Costume

My 4 year old wanted to be Sonic the Hedgehog. But I had a 1 year old son who in my eyes, HAD to have a matching costume. The only other choice was Tails. But they do not make a Tails costume. Everyone kept telling me Tails was a girl. I looked it up online and his name is really Miles so I proved them wrong.

Anyway I went to JoAnne Fabrics and got the fabric to make them. I’m crafty but I’m not pro so I found the hats online because I’m sure it would have looked like a mess if I had tried to sew masks. The hardest part was trying to get Sonic’s tail to stay up. After I stuffed it with stuffing it became heavy and it kept falling. It didn’t look attractive hanging between his legs. I had to hold it up with string but at least you couldn’t really see the string.

My kids LOVED them and so did everyone else that saw that. I got tons of compliments on them. My son asked me to make it again this year! I’m going to try to talk him into being something else, lol.

      This is SO AWESOME!!!! I love Sonic and Tails! FYI: If you didn’t grow up with them, they’re so boy characters! My mom always made our costumes no matter what the challenge was. You did a great job and a lot of people can’t say they made one of a kind costumes like this :)
