Yay, it's that time of the year folks. Time for me to see if I can pull this idea off.

*recomposes himself*

Hello and good morning. Well, it's early morning actually, 1:10am, and I can't sleep. So I decided to start thinking about my next gundam cosplay. I have this one lonely picture from my last (and first) gundam cosplay:

And I have learned from my mistakes. No, seriously, I have. Anyways, this next project is to be highly more ambitious. You see, back in July, we had a anime store open here, and I checked it out, and bought a really sweet gundam model, the PF-78-1 Perfect Gundam. For those of you that have no idea what it looks like, here's a general idea:

Yeah, not the best picture, but it's all I can find, and the only camera I have is a 35mm, and it would take a while for the pictures to be developed. Anyways, this is my situation. Seeing how big this gundam is, I was wondering, would I be able to get away with making a composite cosplay using several layers of cardboard and Wonderflex, or would they not play nice together? I do have my heart set on this idea, I really do, so any comments or suggestions would be fantastic.

Thanks a million!

P.S.
Here's a actual video of it in a Japanese video game, ACE 3.

But it was in a manga first.

P.S.S.
