Dominique “SonicFox” McLean has made a name for themselves as a fighting game great. Back in 2018, Kotaku first profiled the competitor who has become famous for their excellent play and their now iconic fursuit. SonicFox is adding not one but two new suits to their line-up of fur-covered wear.
As Inven Global reports, full-time fursuit designer Yami has revealed the new fursuits. The revamped iconic blue suit is joined by a new red and black one. Both turned out really well!

Both also have an array of features.
That’s right- sonic fox. This suit presented a lot of interesting challenges. I’m really happy with how the pinchers and scars came out. Plus, this guy has LED eyes, removable eyelids, and interchangeable tongues plus a pickable nose. pic.twitter.com/J4GV8sVZNa— Yami (@Yamishizen) April 29, 2020
Sonic fox has not one, not two, but four total expressions, plus interchangeable tongues and wefted hair. I normally never do 2D eyes, but I have to say I am loving how they came out. pic.twitter.com/Ho47U6nuQH— Yami (@Yamishizen) April 29, 2020
Taking the blue suit for a spin:
Yami tells Inven that he worked on the first SonicFox suit, but took a fresh approach for these latest ones.
“We wanted to go with a different style, so we had a lot of trials and errors, refining the work to get right where we wanted,” Yami told Inven. “All in all, it was a great way to showcase improvement since I made the last suit of theirs.”
I…I have to tease y’all with this pic.twitter.com/J81UB0TlT4— Yami (@Yamishizen) April 26, 2020
