Okay, imagine this: au where Eggman still tries to conquer the world and battle Sonic and co, but also acts like a parent to them since they don’t have any (except for Cream) in his own Eggman way!! (For @the-amazing-p3a )
is your vision outside of your Eggman cosplay head through the glasses? if so how did you do them?
Yes, I see out of the head through the “glasses”. How I did them was that I used vinyl weave meant for cross stitching. I normally use buckram as the mesh to see out of from inside of costume heads, but I wanted to try using vinyl weave after seeing a fursuiter maker do it, and to be honest the vision out of it is really good and I wish I had used this stuff sooner.
It doesn’t look as obvious in the photos of the finished Eggman head I posted earlier. But here’s a close-up of the paint job I did on the mesh.
And also to give you an idea of what the vision is like outside of it, here’s a photo that I took with the best of my ability.(Trust me, the vision through the vinyl mesh is way better than how it looks in the photo.)
When it come to painting the mesh, all I did was use basic acrylic paint. I first painted the back of the mesh with a thin layer of black paint, as it helps make it easier to see outside of the head. I then painted the front of the mesh blue in thin layers at a time. After the blue painted had dried up, and I got the coat thickness I wanted, I just went and cut out strips of duct tape and stuck them onto the mesh to use as a stencil, and then painted the parts that covered in white.(I would have used painters tape for this, but I didn’t have any at the moment, so I just used tape and it worked just as good.) After the paint job was complete I went and added a thin coat of modge podge to seal the paint. Keep in mind that the holes in the mesh can’t get clogged up and you will have to either blow the paint out while it’s still wet, and poke the holes with a needle, so it doesn’t mess with the vision through the mesh.
Also, I forget to post this photo in the photoset for the finished head. This is how wear the head and make sure it stays in place while doing so. It’s just a basic adjustable visor head strap.
You might have answered this before (I can't search your blog on mobile), but top 10 favorite quotes from the Sonic franchise?
I’ll do a top 15 :P

Sonic himself is not one of my favourite characters in the series.
Sonic not knowing when to shut up has been a problem for a long time, not just since 2010.
I prefer Robotnik to be a real threat and a total bastard. Not in the one-dimensional sense, I’m not saying he should be a cardboard cutout like the SatAM version. I just like my Eggmen to be ominous whilst retaining their more comical qualities.
I have fun with 3D Blast.
While I don’t mind Shadow as a character, his backstory was convoluted from the very beginning, and it’s one reason for why I find Adventure 2’s story in general to be overhyped. Subsequently…
Adventure 2’s story was one of the biggest catalysts in this franchise’s serious (heh) problems with keeping a balanced tone.
And with a few exceptions, I think Adventure 2’s soundtrack is mostly samey and underwhelming, especially when compared to Adventure 1’s varied soundtrack.
I like Rush, but I like Rush Adventure more.
I don’t think Shiro Maekawa and Ian Flynn are that amazing as Sonic writers.
I acknowledge the effort and love put into Unleashed, but there are too many issues and grievances for me to consider it one of the best in the series.
With a few exceptions like Misty Lake and Faraway Avalon, Black Knight has some of the dullest settings I’ve ever seen in a Sonic game. It also has one of the most forgettable soundtracks in the series.
I like the Deadly Six, and I’d be all for them getting improved rather than being left in the dust.
I’d like to see Marine again.
Captain Whisker is a better Eggman Nega than Eggman Nega.
One of the reasons for why Rouge is one of my favourite characters is because despite first appearances, she’s NOT a total bitch.
Rise of Lyric is a bad game, but JUST a bad game. Bland and unremarkable. NOT the next Sonic ‘06 like so many fans and non-fans make it out to be.
I prefer AoStH over SatAM. Neither of them are that great, or fitting for the series, but at least it’s easy to have fun taking the piss out of AoStH. SatAM is just a generic 90′s cartoon and nothing but for the most part. (Also, SatAM didn’t give us Long John Baldry.)
I think it’s possible for Metal Sonic to have signs of a personality while remaining fiercely devoted to his creator.
Neo Metal Sonic’s design is goofy and laughable for what’s supposed to be a “cooler” upgrade for him. Elf shoes? Ripped dress? Starfish head?
I don’t mind Elise too much, and I think some of the reasons people use for hating her are silly.
Sonic X’s portrayal of Robotnik is my least favourite of the lot.
Season 3 of Sonic X was the worst one.
I like Erazor Djinn despite otherwise not caring for the game he comes from.
Merlina’s betrayal wasn’t really foreshadowed that well.
Thunderbolt doesn’t do much for me. Harley Quinn-type characters generally annoy me more often than not.
Due to not much happening in the middle of Unleashed’s story, Sonic and Chip’s relationship falls a little flat for me when I’m expected to see them as really close friends by the time they’re in Adabat.
I don’t see the Create Your Own Character system in Forces as something that will ruin the franchise more than ever, let alone kill the franchise. Not when the franchise has made far bigger and arguably crazier risks in the past.
People really need to chill out about Pontac and Graff. Even for this fandom’s standards, many fans take their contempt for them way too far, and far too often. They also express even more double standards than usual when the subject is about them. (”Enough with the Sonic self-deprecating, LEGO Dimensions! Besides, they should have made fun of a Pontaff game instead!”)
Black Doom is one of the best comic relief characters in the franchise.
