    A friend of mine went to the Summer of Sonic video game convention in London yesterday. It was a tightly subscribed gathering with 200 people.


    Meeting up with a few friends from a forum she jointly runs about gaming and creativity, she had decided to go cosplaying as Dr.Robotnik.


    She tailored her clothes, shaved her head, acquired accessories in the form of goggles, gloves and stick on handmade mustache (not made from two foxes tails!)


    and whilst she was there she of course got dragged up front to be interviewed in front of the whole convention and presented with some gifts to take away for her trouble.

    She tried to spiel off some lines from the games Dr. Robotnik says, but was too nervous. The crowd apparently then chimed in with quotes.

    This took a lot of courage and it paid off in dividends. She reckons it was the best day of her life!

    And we have a follow up vid, in character!
