How to Make a Dr Eggman Jacket from Sonic the Hedgehog
For DragonCon 2015 a friend of ours had an interest in learning how to sew and wanted to remake his former Dr. Eggman costume. Well, Mike and I were up to the challenge and were actually quite eager to see what we could do when it came to a Dr. Eggman jacket.
Straight after a short discussion, we all headed to Joann’s to search for a pattern and fabrics.
We 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.
We constructed the costume halfway 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 into 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.
