Re: halloween costumes.. easy, cheap, handmade?

For the Sonic costume can you dye some old clothes he has blue? Or buy some really cheap vest and long underpants in blue/dye them? I know they go really cheap at Target and Walmart. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Fruit-Of-T...r-Set/17037973 (there is a plain blue set). Or better still, if you can find a one piece in blue (I saw a red on walmart's website). For the white chest piece simply sew a piece of flesh coloured felt on, or staple cardboard on. Cut off the arms. Red tape for the shoes as someone suggested. Long socks rolled over to make the fat sock part (maybe even 2 pairs to make a double roll like in the pictures) and I'm stumped on the gloves.

Make-up on the face and food dyed blue hair in spikes with gel.

ETA: It would look kind of like this guy, only not a headpiece: http://www.wtfcostumes.com/sonic_the...og_costume.php
