Amy Rose from Sonic the Hedgehog

Amy Rose (formerly known as Rosy the Rascal) is one of the sweetest hedgehog girls you’ll ever meet. Until you make her angry. Or get between her and Sonic. Nevermind that the blue blur doesn’t exactly feel the same way, of course. Rose isn’t about to let that stop her from helping him however she can!

There are a few ways to get Amy Rose’s bubblegum pink look. All three involve a wig and a combination of pink and coral face paint, of course. The looks differ, however, when it comes to your arms and legs.

You can use the same body paint from your face to paint your arms and legs. If that’s a bit much you can opt for pink tights and a pink shirt under your dress. The final option is to use a body suit under your dress instead of the shirt and tights to avoid anything riding up or falling down while you’re cosplaying.

Once you decide on your pink base, you’re in for a little more DIY. Finding red dresses with white trim is pretty hard unless you want a Mrs. Claus look.  So you’ll want to get a red dress, white ribbon, and some fabric glue. For Amy Rose’s boots you’ll want red rain boots than you then use paint to detail.

Finally put on some white gloves and chunky gold bracelets. Now ready to run after the speedster himself right alongside Amy Rose!
