I‘ve worn official Sonic and Mario costumes for work (it was a looooooooooong time ago!) and… and they are not made with the wearer’s comfort in mind, let‘s just say that. I remember being incredibly grateful for Mario’s massive hollow nose, because it meant I had a little more breathing room D:

@“Kimimi”#p38214 I’ve worn official Sonic and Mario costumes for work

I don't wanna ask for details about this because I am secretly hoping it's something very British and completely unrelated to video games such as courtroom sheanigans at the Employment Appeals Tribunal, that one time your local rugby club tried to sign a promising Romanian player, or possibly some random clerical work at MI6. (I am assuming you're British from the Sonic Colours comment in a recent thread but just add koalas in each situation if applicable.)

Anyway, technically this counts as it's for the promotion of the new Shin-chan game :

And catching up on this discussion, I am surprised the recent crowning achievement of thread-favorite Sonic's costume has not been mentioned here: one can finally play as "a person in a Sonic costume" in the prickingly topical 2020 Tokyo Olympics games from Sega. Not to be mistaken with the actual Sonic, playable only in Mario & Sonic at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which is another game entirely. You sadly cannot play as Sonic inside a Sonic costume at the present.

I wish I was exaggerating when I write this is literally the only positive thing that has emerged so far from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the Fyre Festival of unwilling taxpayer-financed sporting events.

what i'm learning from this thread is, sega probably had some investment in blue felt

@“treefroggy”#p11033 this is such a good representation of how cursed the old villager is

From [this CES 1990 video](https://youtu.be/nwwnnZG7AAw?t=878)
