How to Make a Dr Eggman Jacket from Sonic the Hedgehog

Professor Eggman Sonic the Hedgehog Costume Jacket

Straight after a short discussion, we all headed to Joann’s to search for a pattern and fabrics.

Dr Eggman Sonic the Hedgehog Costume JacketWe got super lucky when it comes to finding a pattern! The Burda 2471 pattern was perfect! We knew that we would need to be making some alterations to make the perfect shapes to fit the character.

Our friend, Derek Marunowski, purchased a full body suit and filled it with upholstery foam to create a fat suit. We used non-stretch fabrics in colors similar to ketchup and mustard.

We constructed the costume half way and then started the fitting process to ensure that we have the right pieces in the correct places. This began the fitting process (thanks to a pillow stuffed to Mike’s duct-tape mannequin).

Below you can see the rest of the progress photos. It was relatively straightforward from there, luckily the pattern got us most of what we needed.

After the delivery of the jacket, Derek took over the process of adding the additional pieces. He made foam pieces for the arms and everything else. Not to mention, that phenomenal mustache, bald cap, and goggles look! I was very proud of the costume and how it all came together thanks to everyone involved.
