Hello everyone. I am still very new to the cosplay scene, I am starting a mobile suit Gundam Armor costume from the Seed series. I have done most of my home work already such as what type of items I need such as polystyrene sheeting, photos for references, and an interal cooling system for this project. These pictures below is what I am trying to shoot for. My question is which is better, the one with the back unit or the one with out the backpack unit?

The fanboy in me says that seeing someone properly build the Aile Strike would be very cool, but you have to realize that the backpack may be rather top heavy and difficult to walk in...not to mention depending on what con you go to, it may be even more difficult to get around in it if the rules restrict items such as the Aile Backpack.

However, all things considered...I'd say finish the Strike costume on it's own, then do the Rifle and Shield, and then if your budget and the construction allows you to, Add the backpack.

This is, of course, assuming you're seriously up to the challenge of MS cosplay. ;P

The black/red one looks cool, but the back thingy looks hard to build...
