Concept and creation
The Luminous Suits were inspired by the illuminous costumes players in the United States could get for Team Sonic in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric by pre-ordering the game from Amazon.com. Sticks did not receive a Luminous Suit because she was not playable in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (meaning she got no costume) and because the writers figured she was not really the "wearable tech" type.
Features and traits
Upon activation, certain parts of the Luminous Suits will start glowing (such as sportstapes, neckerchiefs, bracelets, straps and headbands), providing enough light for the users to see in otherwise lightless environments. The suits are controlled remotely by the user's own Communicator.
Team Sonic was first seen putting their Luminous Suits to use when they (twice) explored a caved-in ruin from the Ancients. When the Unnamed Village then experienced a power outage, the team used their suits in the Village for a few nights while they worked on solving this crisis.
- The color of each Luminous Suit's light corresponds to their wearer's primary color; Sonic's is blue, Tails' is yellow, Knuckles' is red and Amy's is pink.
