Character costume redesigns

Recommended Posts

Does anyone not wear hoodies these days?

....I don't wear hoodies...

Well, not in public anyway. I have one when I'm chillin at home but even then I seldom wear it. Not a fan of hoodies. Find them a little tacky even the expensive ones.

Oh and if they bought back Big the Cat ever again, they should make him wear a big long pimp jacket and a cane along with his fishing rod.

Big's new slogan: Fishin for hoes

That also wields a large hammer and has an obessive attitude.

To me, she displays more of a tomboy-ish personality mixed with some sweet.

Amy isn't a tomboy. Not in the slightest. She wields a hammer and is well known to go crazy, but that's in the name of a teenage crush. She's a cute, peppy, pre-teen girl obsessed with love- a red dress is perfect for her. A hoodie would imply she's a rougher character.

didn't she wear some form of Hoodie in the UK sonic the comic? she was depicted as a Tom Boy in that verse.

Just saying, I see a lot of cheer-leader peppy types wear hoodies all the time. They're feminine and it suits them.

However, I think the main reason I actually can see Amy in a hoodie is, to me, a hoodie isn't really connected to the idea of being rough, as it's just somewhat down to Earth. I loved watching the opening of Sonic Adventure with Amy and that shopping bag. It showed her living a normal life. Or as normal as a hedgehog can get.

That's me, though. I see it as more real. Probably wouldn't have been to realistic in that setting -- being coastal.

Those people you see aren't child-orientated fictional characters though. Again, when it comes to Sonic character design a lot of their personality is shown in their appearance. The general idea you get from a hoodie is that someone is quite rough which Amy isn't. Alternatively if you want to use it to describe her as 'down to Earth', you're missing the fact that she isn't down to Earth at all. It's pretty key to the series that none of the characters are particularly normal and all have a strong personality quirk and/or skills.

Neither is Rouge.

I'm just saying I could see Amy wearing that. Me. Don't worry, I don't work for SEGA.

Rouge is still part of the series, so the same rules apply :P

I wouldn't mind the guys having clothes.

Currently the series has unfortunate implications in that it's okay for guys to run around practically naked, but girls are forced to be nearly fully clothed. :P

Back to the actual topic at hand, however.

I'd definitely want Silver to appear in his Rivals suit:

Sonic and Eggman are to me, the only characters who should never change.

Tails would look so cute and whatnot in a pilot suit!

Knuckles' OVA suit is my favourite look for him.

Amy should have a more blue outfit with leggings or anything to cover up dem frilly whites...

Team Chaotix would look cool kitted out in old timey detective outfits (suits and ties, fancy hats, sunglasses)...

Anyone remember in sonic adventure 2, all the characters had a slightly different muzzle/skintone? I liked that. It added a nice bit of diversity and individually to the characters. I'd like if something like that returned - Most of the cast'd be gold/biege like Sonic, but Shadow and Rouge would be tan, and Knuckles's have something like that nice tone he had back in Adventure 2.

I probably am over thinking it, just haven't seen much talk about the subject, so thanks for the differing opinion.

 

While on the subject on costumes, I know I shouldn't expect people to know obscure stuff, but if Sonic-man were to ever come back, I hope his costume ( or more costumes the better) is based around this guy from the end of Michael Jackson's Bad.

That would be awesome.

Naoto Ohshima said already that he was inspired by "a boot" from Michael Jackson's album BAD, I'm pretty sure he was referring to this guy!
