|Even more Sonic the Hedgehog accessories!
Complete your Sonic look with these fun items. If it's not directly clothing, it shows up in accessories. These are a pretty even mix of old and new for your viewing fun. It seems they are not producing quite the number of watches, ties, hats currently as they were with the vintage stuff, but there is certainly no shortage of sneakers and shoes currently available.
|Halloween starts things off with this mask. As you can see, the mask from Page 1, has been updated to the Sonic Adventure style. The update did as well as can be expected from a thin plastic mask, and the result is not scary or particularly dumb looking. The mystery is, where is the rest of the costume?|
|Did you think you were safe from hideous mis-planned Sonic merchandise? These slippers are here to help change your mind! Sonic as a house-slipper has never done very well, and Sonic X is not making any exceptions. These scream 'doofus' quite well. The spikes as the ankle cover, and his weird smooshed face as the toe . It just does NOT work trying to make any character look like a shoe.|
|A winter hat made of knit material with an embroidered-on Sonic face detail. This hat may have been sold in the USA or the UK, possibly both. It is likely from the 1990s, and is not that common. The pom-pom is actually half blue, half red yarn. The style is rather primary, as was common in the early days of Sonic.|
|Yet -another- Sonic costume. This makes the third official one. This is one of those cheap plastic costumes that no one puts any effort into. That is why they have to have a picture and label of the character on the front...because that is the only way you can know who it is. Did this come with a different mask than on Accessories Page 1?|
|Here is a new and interesting collection of hats. The hats are made to look like the backs of the characters' heads, so you too can have Sonic or Shadow's spikes, or Knuckles' quills! Sonic's demonstrates that they need a head in them or else they just flop flat. The shadow is being worn by someone (who is hidden behind the plush-face photo) in order to demonstrate what it looks like when you put it on. The Knuckles is displayed the best, on some type of stand. Where are these being sold, other than Ebay?|
|These hats are rather odd. It's in a similar vein to the above ones, but features part of Sonic's or Knuckles' face. It is likely a takeoff on character hats you often see in Manga, where it has a kitty face or something for the top of their head. How well does it work for Sonic? Apparently pretty well, as they went ahead and made a Knuckles one too! You should be able to get either of these two hats in the SonicGear Store.|
|If there's Sonic & Knuckles, then there has to be Tails too. GE Entertainment's latest hat is a Tails based one. Is it cute or is it strange? The whole concept of these hats is kind of silly. Hat discovered by Berzerker.|
|This rather ordinary looking watch-cap is actually rather valuble.
This item was a pre-release give-away when you pre-ordered Shadow The Hedgehog the game through the Sega newsletter or through an Electronics Botique. The hats had an ok supply, just the "pre-buzz" against the game itself resulted in not too many pre orders. Soon after the game was released, the once 'free' caps were going for over $60.00 USD on ebay. Hang on to your hat if you've got this one!
|Ah, finally the 2nd piece ever of Sonic Jewelry appears!
This pewter-tone necklace features the Sonic X TV show logo on a simple chain. The logo is both cut out, and cut-in for a nice, sihlouetted look and detail.
This is available in 2007, from ToyCup, at their website. Use caution when ordering from them though, they have many complaints.
What is the other Sonic Jewelry? The Sterling Ring from Japan's Sonic 10th anniversary celebration.
|The tag on this still looks odd, doesn't it?
All the Nintendo characters gathering around the tag which is on a pair of Sonic socks! The socks appear to be a stretch-fabric rather than woven or knit type. What is the Sonic design made of? It looks like it could be a decal/iron-on type as it is so smooth. Where are these socks sold?
|These mittens are different from the pair on Sonic Accessories Page 1. They have his name in yarn on the front, and a 'pixellated' stripe on the back. Again the cuffs are checkered like the dirt in Sonic 1. The Sonic & Tails stick-on design remains the same though. With this pair, you get a nice clear view of the tag. These were produced in the winter of 1995.|
|Here are 2 pairs of old Sonic House-Slippers.
These are actually more like 'house-shoes' as they are quite shoe-like in structure with elastic curves toward the top and no extra elements. One pair is red and blue, the other red and black. Each pair features Sonic doing a type of odd-looking punching gesture, with one fist in perspective. It's kind of strange they would choose such similar poses for similar pairs of slippers. The design is a type of tough plastic material that isn't shiny. Photo credit: Shadow Stewart.
|Out of all the previous 'store bought' costumes, this one seems to have made the most effort. Not that that did it a lot of good. It still isn't very 'Sonic-ish' but at least it is trying. This is a full body kids costume, likely made out of that very thin papery fabric stuff. As you can see, it has the Sonic 1 type logo (so you can tell who it's supposed to be) It likely didn't come with white gloves, though it probably should have.
It is similar to the costume on Sonic Accessories Page 1.The costume may have a hood, or the head part could be a hat. They did the eyes so that your own eyes become sort of like the pupil/colored part...which just looks a bit odd. The mouth/nose they also leave up to you (like black nose-paint) The sad thing is they didn't stuff the quills at all, so Sonic's spikes are droopy like a mutating wilting flower. For an official effort (at least compared to others) it did ok, but still, can't they top this?
*Each Halloween Sonic Gear gets lots of requests for finding Sonic costumes. Apparently, he'd be a great thing to be on Halloween (collect candy faster!) but the official suits never fail to dissapoint. The best thing to do as of 2007, is likely to fan-construct your own. Will Sonic X's popularity bring about a costume at retail that's actually respectable?
|Here's yet another attempt at a costume. This time, Viney is the culprit. Rather than being sort of an 'over-all' like the one above on the page, this is just a crinkly plastic long vest like thing with no sleeves and a picture from way back in Sonic 1.
At least this one comes with a mask, although it must not be very big because look at it in relation to the rest of the costume. These turn up on ebay each year around Halloween because someone must have hoarded them for the many years since they were released.
|Here's an interesting oldschool pair of sneakers. These have Sonic & Knuckles on the side as a sewn on patch of plastic-like material. Knuckles is a bit off-model, and not 100% stock art. The top-half only of Stock Sonic appears. They're accented by black lightening bolts and embroidery on the velcro straps. Each strap says "Sega Power" with Sega in the traditional font, but "Power" looking like it's written a bit in they style of 'nintendo power' for some reason. These shoes must have arrived around the time of the "Sonic & Knuckles" shoes and game. (2 different styles of sneakers, and 1 hiking boots were produced with the S&K symbol on it.)

|These are not ordinary gloves! (or even very useful gloves) These fun, stuffy gloves are made to resemble plush Sonic hands for you to wear. You can see they're pretty big too, compared to a plush at left. The cuff has an embroidered logo, and they even have a paper hangtag. But do you want these gloves?|
|You can have them for about $14.99, as they are available for order from www.toysnjoys.com . These USED to be marked as an 'in house only' Sega promotional item, but it seems they're releasing these gloves--a good thing!|
|Want more than just Sonic? Here's a Knuckles Mitten too! (A glove has fingers, a mitten does not, so technically this is a mitten) This big plush glove has the same embroidering on its cuff, and will also be available at ToysNJoys. It's pretty good looking too, with nicely sized knuckle spikes and it is appropriately big. The only area it suffers a little is the cuff which would need to be more substantial to complete the look. However, this is a really unique collectible item whether or not you intend to wear it. At $14.99 it's not a bad price, as you can see these are rather large.|

|Are patches an accessory? They can be, if you sew them onto book-bags or clothing. Here are 3 patches, each with a different shape. The diamond-shape patch is quite interesting as SA style modern Sonic is usually never seen fully in profile, not doing anything. This makes for a good design that's unusual. The circle patch shares its' design|
|with a keychain, but it's still rather dynamic looking. The rectangle is a quite close up of pointing SA1 type Sonic so that most of him is cropped off, but it also has the logo. Are these embroidered? Plastic-cloth? If you have any of these patches, write in with the details for credit! These patches available at www.animenation.com|
