Are there any fans of Gundam Wing here? Alot people who did Gundam Wing donīt seem to be active anymore. I often chat with Miri who cosplays Quatre but otherwise I donīt meet any Gundam Cosplayers. Alot accounts donīt contain photos...I mean...they could be deleated. I see alot Naruto Cosplayers. Are there still any fans of Gundam Wing or people who are planning to do a certain character?

I love Gundam Wing. <3

I just finished up a Lady Une cosplay, but I don't have any pics yet (I'm fixing some pieces before I get photos). And I definitely have plans for a Catherine cosplay for next year, but that might get switched to Hilde if my friends does a Duo cosplay. ^_^

I'd plan to do some of the pilots, but crossplay is uncomfortable for me. ^_^;; However, I'd like to cosplay most of the females. ^_^

I think the reasons why you don't see so many PROMINENT fans of GW anymore is because, while it used to be the anime, it's a much older one. GW was one of the first things to really go mainstream, so it was a lot of people's first. Now Naruto, FMA, and Inuyasha (yes, still XD) are much bigger, very popular, and, most importantly, newer. Since Gundam Wing isn't popularized very much anymore, it's the fans who remember it who have to spread the love.

Gah...X_x that sounds like it's a dying memory or something, which is depressing.

I am a fan though, and I can assure you that I know quite a few people who will say the same. I'm hoping to cosplay a pilot one of these days myself.

Oh, and if you're looking for pictures, just go to the photos section and search "gundam wing". There's over 1,500 photos and quite a few of them are recent. There's even a Heero (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=1093599) or two. (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=1032129)

I love Gundam Wing! Its one of the first Anime I watched as a kid. its still the best Gundam in my opinion.
It would be awesome to cosplay Trowa's circus outfit but I'm not really planning on it.

Coooool!! *is happy now* The problem is that germany is not very...up to date. lol! Gundam Wing has just been in our tv for the first time and in other countries there are already alot new anime series. However I know it from the internet, for 3 years now I think. :-)))

Rayonea: Cool, Lady Une and Catherine...^_____^

Yeah, but those Heero´s don´t REALLY look like Heero. That´s boring...

Actually, I once did a Roche Nattano Cosplay for a dress up event.

He's from Gundam Wing G Unit if you didn't know. (Last Outpost in the US)

What'd really be difficult but totally awesome to try is to cosplay as the gundams themselves. They wouldn't have to be perfect, just recognizable. I've thought about trying to make a wingzero or epyon cosplay, though they're still a long ways off on my priority list at the moment...

BOTH have Gundam (like Mobile Suit) Cosplayers. I also have some on facebook, so if you want to see some really neat Gundam Cosplay, hit me up via PM.

Ex-S Cosplayer: To cosplay as the gundams...this would be funny. lol! Epyon and Wing Zero, that´s cool!! Thanks for commenting my Heero Cosplay. I ordered a wig, should arrive this week. :-) And new better spandex shorts.

I´m a girl but...that doesn´t mean I can´t cosplay as Heero. ;-) I mean...if I look a bit like him, it´s okay, isn´t it? And with the wig it´ll be much better. *happy*

Heero has a kind of feminine look...

Heero(f)
07-08-2007, 05:19 PM
Captain A.D.D.: Exactly. Heero really has something feminine. That´s so cute!! lol! And Quatre too. I think alot boys that cosplay Quatre and Heero just don´t look good. I don´t like it, ´cause their bodies are too...*takes her dictionary out*...massive. ;-) GIRLS DO IT BETTER!! *g*

Saaski_Moql
07-08-2007, 07:24 PM
I don't think you should call it boring if a person doesn't look like/exactly like the character. That's not really fair to, well, everyone ^^; Looking like a chara is definitely a cool plus, but being able to make and wear their costume is still just as good.

I agree though-- girls do often have an easier time cosplaying bishis, because many anime males have feminine looks, like Quatre or Duo for instance.

Tottaly BIG Gundam Wing fan here. I have a good friend who comes every
year just to see the voice actor(Scott Mcneil) who voiced Duo Maxwell and
cosplays as him very well. I would love to see a cosplay of Relena Peacecraft

Heero(f)
07-09-2007, 03:17 AM
Usachan: EWWW!! That´s cool!! :-)) You can use the costume search funktion, there are a few Relena Peacecrafts. ;-) They look pretty good.

Saaski_Moql: Sorry, I didn´t want to insult anyone, it´s just my opinion.

Amechan
07-09-2007, 04:06 AM
I've been actually thinking of doing a Relena Peacecraft cosplay later on. No one seems to like her very much in GW fandom... which I find sort of odd. She's not that bad. Anywho, I was thinking of cosplaying as Queen Relena... but I dunno. It'll probably be a while before I can add a Relena costume to my cosplay arsenal.

Miri
07-09-2007, 08:42 AM
Even though GW is old, I'm still in love with it. XD Maybe that's mostly because it was my gateway into Anime (along with Sailor Moon and Speed Racer XD), so it will always hold a special place in my heart. XD

Plus Quatre's my favorite bishie ever. *pokes avatar* :P

Heero(f)
07-09-2007, 10:31 AM
Edit Quatre: so it will always hold a special place in my heart. XD

EWWWW!! *pats Quatre* :-))

I think Relenaīs not THAT bad. I donīt understand why some people are annoyed when someone cosplays as Relena. Sometimes she can be a cute girl. :toothy: => did I just say that??!!! WHATīS WRONG WITH ME??!!

Saaski_Moql
07-09-2007, 11:07 AM
XD I understand if you want people to look like the characters. Just keep in my it won't happen that often. (And that you're allowed to compliment a cosplay even if the human inside isn't perfect =p)

Relena...I don't think she's that bad either. Some episodes she's annoying, sure, but she's important and usually quite smart. Personally I think Relena-bashers are just a bit more annoying, because then everything gets over exaggerated!

Wufei's my favorite character, but I don't think I'd be able to do him justice in a cosplay...no pun intended. I was thinking perhaps Duo, maybe. I've got a Heero glare down pat, but methinks walking around in spandex, even at a con, would be pushing it for me XD

Heero(f)
07-09-2007, 02:05 PM
I know, I know. ;-) I´m not perfect either. *plays with gun* I know it´s not very often that people look like the characters. They don´t have to but IF they do, it´s very cool!!

You like Wufei? That´s cool! I don´t meet alot people who like Wufei. Wufei´s funny, I love the "injustice" thing. Muahaha!!

Yeah...spandex. I do weightlifting at the moment to get more muscles ´cause of my Heero Cosplay. *gg* And I do jogging...

I love love LOVE Gundam Wing. <3 It will always be my favourite anime series and I really hope that one day I can force everyone I know to cosplay it with me and have the entire main cast. ^__^

I have yet to do any GW cosplay, but it's at the top of my list. I want to grow my hair out a little more before I do Duo, and the others I want to cosplay basically every single girl in the show. XD So yay!

But I've never seen any good Gundam Wing cosplayers in person! ;O; Change this! (I still say that if I ever see a handsome Treize, he will be asked for multiple hugs.)

Heero(f)
07-09-2007, 03:56 PM
I haven´t seen alot good GW cosplayers either, as I said before, but there are still some nice cosplays on here.
I think this Heero is cute. :-) That´s a girl!! http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=7539
Great Relena cosplay here:
http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=330931

*pouts* do I at least look a little bit like Heero?? XD!
However, the black spandex shorts and the wig are still missing, I ordered both online. Must arrive tomorrow...

Miri
07-11-2007, 04:32 AM
Hopefully GW will make a little bit of a comeback- They're re-releasing the series for HD, and I guess there's rumors of the 'Odds and Evens' stuff that was cut out on there.

Heero(f)
07-11-2007, 06:06 AM
Yeah, I hope so too. I´ve just received my spandex shorts and wig. *jumps up and down in front of the mirror* I´ve just made new photos. what do you think?

you cosplay Trowa?? I LOVE Trowa too! ;-) He´s so nice and cute! I mean...you must be crazy to rescue Heero and take care of him for a month, but that´s why I love him so much! lol! *drooool* *Yaoi fan* *g* But I also love Quatre with Heero. *muahah*

PluieEnfant
07-12-2007, 02:19 PM
Ahh! Gundam Wing! Trowa is my absolute favorite!!! :D For AFO this August, I'll be cosplaying as Heero Yuy in his St. Gabriel's school uniform. I've never seen anyone do it and I want to see if anyone recognizes me.

I'm just your average, undercover schoolboy. :)

Heero(f)
07-12-2007, 02:23 PM
Hey, that´s cool!! I have never seen anyone in the St. Gabriel´s school uniform either. I´m sure it´ll be great!! Can´t wait for photos´f you!! :-)
Question: If your favourite Gundam pilot´s Trowa, why will you cosplay Heero? ;-)

I'm almost done with it so I'll take pics at my house just for the Gundam Wing fans. :D

I'm planning on doing a Trowa cosplay next year with my friend who will go as Catherine. She can't go to the con this year so I'm just gonna solo it and be Heero. I like Heero too anyway and I haven't cosplayed a schoolboy yet. Haha. Ahhh, crossplay. Good stuff.

Heero(f)
07-12-2007, 03:33 PM
Yeah, I did that too. Already got alot compliments, I´m proud to be such a good-looking Heero. lol! Have you already seen my photos? I haven´t been to a con yet. I wanted to, but I´ll get operated soon, so I can´t...

PluieEnfant
07-12-2007, 03:54 PM
That's cool. I'm gonna go check out your pics. :) I hope everything goes well!

07-12-2007, 04:00 PM
Thanks! When I´m better I´ll visit Miri (Quatre) and we´ll go to a con and make alot photos. XD I´ll go to America and visit her, that will be so cool!!

PluieEnfant
07-12-2007, 04:26 PM
That is cool! Yay. You get to visit Quatre in the States! When I'm older I'll be able to go and visit my faraway con friends. So much fun! I love conning!

Heero(f)
07-13-2007, 03:42 AM
I´m so proud that alot people like my Heero Cosplay. That means alot to me ´cause it was also hard work to pose sometimes. I´ve seen some spandex shorts in a shop nearby. Today I´ll go and buy them ALL. Muahaha!!

Miri
07-13-2007, 07:19 AM
That'd be so cool if we could get a full group together when you come over. :D

Also, Fun note, my sister is going to dress up as Irea for me for photos sometime. XD I just need to buy her the wig first. Yay obscure characters that are only in one episode! >_>;;

PluieEnfant
07-13-2007, 08:02 AM
That's cooool. Yay. Siblings! It would be crazy if you could get a few Maganac to follow you around. ^_^

As for Heero(f). Go, get some spandex! What's a Heero without his spandex?

Heero(f)
07-13-2007, 08:24 AM
hey Quatre, that´d be cool. I wanna see more photos of you cosplaying Quatre. Hihihi!! I´d love to see Sylvia Noventa so she can shoot me, but I haven´t seen a Noventa cosplayer yet. lol!

Today I´ve bought I think 8 spandex shorts. O.O There were so many and I couldn´t dedice which I shall buy. And my mother said: "Take them ALL!" looooooool!! That was great!! I have the colours: 2xblack, 1xgrey, 1xwhite, 1xblue, 1xyellow^^

Miri
07-13-2007, 04:07 PM
Aww, don't worry, I'll of course I'll make more photos. Quatre's my absolute fav, so I've gotta. XD I live near a new hotel/convention center that has a real fancy Library- I've gotta go get shots from in there. :D

That's funny you mention her, as I was thinking of doing a Sylvia cosplay for one of those easy con Sundays. Well when you come over we can take some of those. XP


I can't imagine Heero with yellow shorts... XD

Heero(f)
07-13-2007, 04:13 PM
MUAHAHA!! Heero with yellow shorts will certainly be very cool. I´ll try it soon. *gg* Yeah....i think you´d also be a good Sylvia Noventa. XD Ok. We make photos and I´ll give you my gun. *gg*
Btw. Did you see my new photos already?

Oops! I missed this post before. XD

I've been talking to another friend of mine, and she was actually working on making a Maqunac group. o_o I thought my boyfriend, who's 6'5" and towers over me would be a great Rashid, so I'll atleast have him sometime. XD

And Heero, Yes I did. :D

Ooooh. That's so cool. All 40 of them? XD Or maybe just ten, or five. Yeah, five is plenty. Wow, that would be cool having your very own Rashid! I don't have anyone to cosplay with so I'll just make a Relena plushie with her party dress. We'll dance. And then I'll shoot her....finally....^_^;;

Just had to say kudos on wanting to cosplay as Queen Relena. I have been contemplating that one myself...even if she did only play that role for like 2 episodes. haha
But yea, I LOVE GW! ^_^

You know, maybe I will make the doll, but it'll have 'x' eyes since it'll be dead. Haha, we're so mean.

I'm actually saving up to buy the boxset for the series because I really want to see it in Japanese. The dub isn't really that bad for this series but who doesn't like the original?

Heero in yellow spandex shorts...I think I just died.

Heero(f), I looked at you new pictures in the gallery. Do you have two wigs? Because sometimes the hair looks a lot more curly, and...odd, and other times it makes a pretty good Heero wig. Maybe it's the angle? *confused*

Heero(f)
07-15-2007, 04:06 AM
Hehe! No, I don´t have two wigs. But if I stroke the hair before making photos it´s possible that it looks different on other photos. You can easily manipulate that hair. lol! It´s just like real hair. XD Very cool!
Do you like it more curly or flatter? ;-)

Saaski_Moql
07-15-2007, 10:53 AM
Oh, I see. Human hair makes it make sense. Synthetic has a tendency to sproing back into place or fuzz up, unless you're careful. Straighter/flatter is better, definitely! It's just a little hard to see Heero with hair that curly...XD

Heero(f)
07-15-2007, 03:17 PM
XD Okay, I´ll try to flatten it more next time, for you. *g* I find it also cute when it´s a bit curly. But that wig´s very hard to tame. Muahah!! XD

Saaski_Moql
07-15-2007, 03:30 PM
Heh, it's fine curly, just as a normal wig, but I think flatter makes it more "Heero"-ish. His hair doesn't curl so much as it spikes/lies flat. Kid's got a LOT of hair.

Heero(f)
07-15-2007, 03:40 PM
Yeah, I know what you mean. :-) Ok. I´ll try to make it more "Heero-ish" next time. XD I don´t think I will get it THAT flat but I can try. Hehe!! I developed the perfect Heero. He visited a hair stylist. Muahaha!!

I´ve already female fans, did you notice? lol

Saaski_Moql
07-15-2007, 05:12 PM
Yes, I noticed that some girls are already declaring love for you XD

You know what you should pose with next time? A LAPTOP. Or some sort of computer, at least. Heero may love that gun, but the laptop comes first, I'd think ;)

07-15-2007, 10:37 PM
I like all the Gundam animes. If I had to pick a favorite, I think it would have to be "Gundam Seed", but they're all good, including "Gundam Wing".
Although my favorite series overall is "Gundam Seed", my favorite mobile suit is from "Gundam 0083" (the GP03) and my favorite character is from "Gundam Wing" (Zechs Merquise), so my interests are all over the place...
That being said, I have cosplayed as Zechs Merquise before (as he appears early in the series, with his helmet). If you were curious, the helmet was an old bicycle helmet with pieces of white foam glued on to it.

I've actually managed to get all five gundam pilots together for a short time, but the Trowa and Quatre were last minute because people kept dropping out. ^^; But I've been to 7 cons as Duo, and better yet, I've got the hair for it too. ^.~ So don't worry, there are still plenty of Gundam Wing fans out there, you just gotta know where to look. ^^

This is me with my GW group:

I'm able to go to three cons a year and yet...I still haven't seen a DUO!! Arghh! :( It's so sad...And he's one of the more popular ones to cosplay. It's too bad I can't drive to Metrocon. I'll just have to stick with Orlando cons. Ahhh....T_T

07-17-2007, 04:59 AM
hey, the gundam group´s very cool!! XD

do you think I don´t look masculine enough for Heero? lol! A guy wrote me a comment under my photo I should work on looking more masculine. You think he´s just jealous or so? Or is he right...

I mean...Heero DOES look a bit female, guys don´t have such a small face usually...and as long as I look like him, what´s wrong with being a girl and cosplaying Heero Yuy?? I don´t get it. ^^

PluieEnfant
07-17-2007, 07:50 AM
Heero does look feminine (he's a bishounen after all ^_^) which is why I'm not worrying too much about my cosplay that covers everything up. I think he's suggesting more muscle tone like what Heero has. -___- You can try to change your muscle tone but this is cosplay and you should have more fun with it than worrying how to look EXACTLY like the character. Not everyone is Heero after all. Maybe he wants you to bind as well and get the flattest chest possible.

Sigh. The troubles of crossplay.

I used to cosplay as Duo but I cut my hair so I retired the costume.

Heero(f)
07-17-2007, 03:50 PM
I think this guy has forgotten that Heero Yuy is an anime character and that he´s not a REAL PERSON. And IF he was real he woudn´t have such muscles ´cause it´s just not possible to be so small and fragile and at the same time having that much muscles. -_- So...I think I´m a nice Heero Yuy. *nods* I have enough muscles. lol!

And I don´t care ´bout what brainless kids say as long as I have fun, as you said, PluieEnfant. XD

So yes...My costume is almost complete! I have many holes in my fingers, two of which bled. T_T I'm scared to try and finish. I think Heero's spirit is trying to tell me something. Or maybe it's Relena.

Heehee, you take a lot of pictures. I don't have any up yet. My camera died before I could take pics. Sigh. Maybe later on this week, when I finish the vest and redo the collar.

Ahh...these are bad holes. Oh well. That's what happens when you're in a rush. T_T

The photos of just your eyes probably got deleted because it's just that, your eyes. You could easily use it for your avatar, but a photo of one's eyes is not a costume ^_^()

Heh, I just started on my Trowa wig as well. My friend I've convinced to go as Quatre so our skit entry is going to be the duet they play (which for the life of me I can't remember what it's called but when I was a big fan I wrote out some sheet music for it XD )

Still working on trying to draw up a basic reference from all the images, but I'm hoping to put together one of the flight suits that they wear after Quatre showed up with Wing Zero. Only downside... exactly what colours are they? Every picture I've seen looks completely different >< Then again, it could be my monitor. ^^; Can't decide on which of the pilots I want to cosplay, but I figure that as long as the outfits are all the same, then I can save deciding on character for last.

Ooh...flight suits, flight suits! I was thinking of going as Trowa in his flight suit from the last few episodes. I always thought those were the best flight suits.

My favorite episodes? Ahha....wow. Dunno. I guess 13 when Catherine punches Trowa and also when he regains his memory. Aww...sweet stuff. Haha.

Update on my costume. I only have to work on my Heero wig and I'll be done. I trimmed the back today and now I just have to buy spray so I can finish the bangs. Ahhh...get excited people! ^__^

Gundam Wing...that brings back so many found memories. ^_^ Next to Sailormoon, it was m favorite fandom. I really don't have any plans of cosplaying as anyone from the series. Although I always wanted to find someone else so we could do the two personalities of Lady Une.

One of the most saddest episodes for me is when Quatre blows Trowa up. Sniff. Ahhhhhhh! I was about to cry. T_T

Today I was wondering about my next cosplay which will be a Trowa cosplay. Thing is, I have no idea which outfit I should wear. Mariemaia uniform, OZ uniform, or the opening clown outfit. Ahh. My friend is gonna be Cathy and she doesn't care which Trowa I'll be...but...it's so hard to choose. @_@

Heero(f)
07-29-2007, 03:23 AM
Well...I love the Oz uniform and the clown outfit most but as long as it´s Trowa, it´ll look good anyway. ;-)

I also like the episode where Heero´s in prison and Trowa wants him to fight. It´s completely dark and then the door opens and the soldier: "Come out!" I love the expression of Trowa when he observes Heero then. XD

As for Heero artbook pictures, if you search for Heero galleries online, then they should come up. I'll go look for the one that he has in this series of pictures.

Wow, my first cosplay was Duo Maxwell! I did a variant of him; I did his child form from the manga, Episode Zero. B/c it was my first, it wasn't very good (my friend made it for me, actually) But I like it. I'm also planning on doing a "shinigami" style duo (grim reaper robes and scythe) as my next cosplay, but I can't find the pattern I had in mind... >.<

If you go to any SoCal cons, you may see me, though now I parade around as Orochimaru (from Naruto) cuz it's much better than my duo costume, but only until I've completed my shinigami style! I'll (hopefully) be at AniMagic this year, I went to Expo (but sadly missed the Wing gathering...) And went to ALA. Not sure what cons I have planned for next year yet. depends mostly on college! ^_~ but I'm looking into Fanime, and (since i'll be in Arizona) AniZona! Hope to see you guys there!

Heee...thanks! I just wish I could do something about the patches. Seriously, I just designed the images on my computer and then printed them on printable canvas. Easily removed since they're only being held on with hem tape so that the jackets can be washed.

All I have to say about the Preventer jackets otherwise...piping is EVIL.

I'm really hoping that I can get all 5 Gundam pilots together in Preventer jackets for Anime Boston next year. I think I might wear the manga version then...people were having way too much fun at AnimeNEXT yanking on my tie.

Heh...I'm more of a 2x1 fan myself, but I don't mind other pairings. Especially seeing as my friends that I cosplay with all seem to like other pairings and usually that means I'm getting harassed because the other half always seems to involve Duo.

And before someone asks...no, that isn't all my real hair. I have to use an extension that is braided into my own hair in order to get that length. Getting there though...a couple more years and I won't need to use extensions anymore.

XD Of course, otherwise they just pull on my braid, the one downside to using my real hair, they don't have to worry about pulling off wigs or extensions. XD

Oh yeah, Gundam Wing will always have a place in fandom. Was hooked on it the minute I saw it back in 1997. It was totally great back in 2000 when it was like THE popular cartoon on TV. Totally agree with PluieEnfant, it will always be my favorite Gundam Series. If you don't believe me, then please refer to the following image:

I usually cosplay Heero at conventions, but next year I might change up and cosplay Duo. Or maybe be the only person to cosplay all five Gundam pilots, heh heh heh.

Long live GW cosplay! :)

Lucrezia Noin is one of my favorite characters to cosplay. I've been cosplaying her since... 2003? My group is also planning a whole set of new Gundam W costumes for next year. We've already bought the fabric for Treize, Zechs and Noin (I'm remaking my uniform to match the others), and we're trying to recruit a Lady Une to round out the group.

I'm thrilled that there are other people here as old school as I am... I mean, I watched Gundam W on VHS fansubs before it was licensed in the U.S. I used to bring my tapes home from college and show them to my sister. That was the show I used to convert her to otakudom. :)

Heee...thank you! What cons have you been to? I hardly ever talk to anyone in that costume because most people don't recognize me. Especially when I'm running solo (even though I'm obnoxiously tall).

I could have done Duo without an extension BEFORE I cut my hair. Then I chopped it off and donated it. Now I'm going through the years of trying to grow it back out. Someone grabbed and yanked my braid back at AB06...that hurt because it's fairly well secured to my head (my own hair gets interwoven with it).

I'm pretty sure I got rid of the craptastic series Duo I did one Halloween back in like 2000 or something. I almost want to go back and do that or EW, but...I tend to have to drag one or both of my costumes for Riku with me and I end up spending a lot of time in those.

Sorry, I should have specified . . . I've seen you around on forums and stuff. ^^; I don't think I've ever seen you at a con. I've been to Metrocon the past three years, the first two years of AnimeSouth over in Destin, Momocon 2007, and Otakucon 2004. I don't think I've seen you at any of those. ^^
But, I have seen your pictures. I really couldn't tell you're using extensions, so good job on that too.
I once had a dream that someone yanked on my braid so hard I fell backward, cause they thought it was fake. It was weird. XD
At the moment, I only do Endless Waltz Duo (and my original formal Duo), I haven't decided whether I want to do his show outfit (gah, those pants x.x). But I did throw together Duo pjs for Metrocon this year. Scott McNeil saw me in them and he got a kick out of it; I was wearing a red/black striped shirt like the one in this picture: http://www.cyberartscamp.org/webdesign/2004/week3/athena/images/gw_slumber_party.jpg
but since I couldn't find the pants, I wore boxers and said that fangirls stole my pants. He laughed. XD

Okay, so this is a completely random, unsolicited comment, but your dream made me think of it: I am a professional animal trainer; I work mostly with dogs. My hair is about three feet long, so when I'm working, I often braid it to get it out of the way. One day, I was standing with my back to the fenced training area during another trainer's class, and a young Great Dane -- apparently mistaking my braid for a rope toy -- latched onto my hair and pulled me backward over the fence!

I wish I could say that's the only time something like that has happened, but... well, nowadays I usually put my hair all the way up when I'm working with puppies! :)

JeiC & Yume -- Both of your Duos are great! I love seeing EW and Preventers costumes. (I didn't really start attending cons until the heyday of Gundam W cosplay, which is when everybody with a black T-shirt and hair long enough to braid cosplayed Duo. The result of this phenomenon is that Duo cosplay is so deeply ingrained in my head that I will be walking through some public place, catch sight of someone with a braid and a baseball cap or a black shirt, and I'll grab my sister's arm and say, "Look, a Duo cosplayer!")

Ironically, though I have hair the color and length of Duo's, I always play Noin. Hmm...

JeiC
08-04-2007, 02:56 PM
Heh...sorry, my bad. I've only attended Anime Boston, ConnectiCon, AnimeNEXT, and MangaNEXT. I tend to stay in the northeast for the moment because I usually have to travel by myself and I don't really want to drive more than 6 hours by myself.

Time to cosplay Duo! Heh...Duo is the only character I have at the moment that I don't have to hold a serious expression for if I don't want to.

08-04-2007, 08:24 PM
AVAAntares, that's gotta suck. XD But, living in a house with two puppies and two new kittens, the latter of which love to climb my hair, I know the feeling. ^^
And thanks for the compliment, by the way. ^^ I decided to do the Endless Waltz version, partly because I didn't want to wear those odd pants, and partly because soooo many people do his show outfit that even a well done one wouldn't get enough attention. But you'd be surprised at how many people at cons don't recognize me. >.>



JeiC, at the moment, I only have Duo period. XD Though my friend is making me a Neji costume as we speak. ^^;

I bought Battlefield of Pacifist and Endless Waltz the manga. I'm gonna see if someone has Blind Target and Ground Zero. Maybe even some novelization. Yup yup. I love Gundam Wing and I'm glad to see that there are still plenty of devoted fans! By the way, I'm always done with my Trowa mask. I just have to add a second coat and then outline in black.

But either way.. ^^

Oh man, I know the deal with money. That's why a lot of my other plans for various Duo cosplays have been put on the back burner since if I did them, I'd be doing it alone. Kinda want to cosplay with friends.

I'm wicked excited about having all 5 Gundam pilots in Preventer uniforms next year (even though that means me making the remaining jackets...I end up having to make 1 or 2 every year because we add more people). Right now it looks like we'll be doing the manga version (Episode Zero: Preventer 5), but since it's so far away, it's still up for debate. Too bad we'll only have all 5 in 2008 for Anime Boston.

I'm having a hard time deciding on Trowa's hair color for a wig. On Amphigory, there's number 30 which is more Duo-ish and then there's 27 which is the closest thing. (I tried to link it but the URL is being weird...Sorry.) Yeah, it's the closest thing and I'm not even sure if it's the right color. Sigh. Katiebair used a darker brown, but I don't think Trowa's hair is that dark. Mehhh...

Oh, I've also found the perfect shirt for my Trowa artbook cosplay. The one with the rocker pants. If anyone wants to know...sniff...

Okay, I'm done ranting...Miri, have lots of fun at your convention! ^___^

Well, I talked to Katiebair and she used a Femme Fatale from amphigory and used the color Lavish (6). I think Lavish is a little too dark, but it's about as close as possible. If your friend needs some help in styling it, he can just got to Katiebair's forum and ask her how she made it.

This thread makes me happy! :toothy: My very first cosplay was Wufei at Otakon 2001. I still love the show and am wearing a GW Tshirt right now, in fact. I don't think I'd repeat doing Wufei though, because I modified an old Karate uniform for it and it was kinda crappy looking. I think I have pictures of it lying around somewhere...

If I did a GW cosplay again it would be Queen-of-the-World Relena. Not very high on my priority list right now though.

I need to stop writing stories and check the boards...

Anyway, my hair isn't long enough, but I use extensions instead. I kinda rigged something up with 2 packs of jumbo braid extensions from Sally's, which connects to my hair at the base of the braid and is just woven in with my own. My hair is about half the length of my braid for Duo, but you could probably pull it off as well as long as you have enough hair to put into even a small braid.

Yeah, I know about the growing tired of it thing...I did it several years ago and I'm still growing it back out.

Aww, Mih is so cute. Thanks for showing that Miri. I looked at her Wufei and Meilan gallery and wow, they're really good. Best Wufei I've seen (then again, I say that all the time...). My Tro-tro cosplays were on standby while I was in NY, but now that I'm back, they'll be up and running. Not as fast as I hope them to be since school just started but...at least I'm trying. T_T I need to go look for cloth. I have no idea what cloth to use for my Opening 1 costume and I have NO idea how to make the pants. Anyone wanna help me...?

That is genius! I never would have thought of that! Thanks for the idea :D!

Heh...more like me trying to find a cheaper way then buying a wig. Overall, I think the cost of the extensions cost me US$4. That's not counting the elastics holding the starting knot together, but that's negligible.

PluieEnfant: You may want to check out using stuff like boning or whatever they use to make the big hoop skirts you see in southern bell type of costumes to get the poofy-ness. Try checking out some other clown costume patterns...they might have some better suggestions if they do poofy pants as well.

Wow -- that is the coolest Wufei I've ever seen! And I think it's the first Meiran I've ever seen, for that matter. Thanks for posting the pic, Miri!

PluieEnfant: Which pants are you doing? (Sorry, I've not kept up with this thread, what with Ikasucon and GenCon back to back... I've just barely skimmed to catch up.) If it's the big poofy clown pants (what else do you call them?) your biggest factor is going to be fabric choice.

The suggestion about looking at the game threads is also a good one: One of the cosplayers I judged at Ikasucon had the brilliant idea of altering (what I think started as) a hakama pattern and putting elastic in the bottom, so that when she pulled them up on her legs, they poofed out perfectly. It's hard to describe... :) But I can send you photos if you like. She had the most dead-on Sora pants I've ever seen.

JeiC: I thought about using boning. I've been looking around at other "poofy-pants" people and trying to see how they might do it.

AVAAntares: I'm thinking of doing his pants from the first opening, the blue ones with yellow stars on them. Same thing as the series, only different colors. Someone's told me about looking at Sora's pants. Hakama pattern? Wow, haven't thought of that. It just might work. I know that I have to make them baggy/big but I had no idea how to make them give that odd poof. Could you please send me the photos? I'd like to see. ^_^

JeiC
08-24-2007, 07:08 PM
hm...with a hakama pattern, you're going to have all those pleats. I'd be interested in seeing how they managed to get around that.

I asked my mother for some ideas since she's beyond awesome at making clothes in general and always helps me with my costumes.

If the pants are not lined, hand tack boning in place in circumference around the leg. If the pants are lined, either make a casing or directly sew the boning to the lining.

I can get more information if you want.

JeiC: Yes, I'd like more information about boning. My mother has done it before as well, but she's not as advanced in sewing. But that's only because her sewing machine was waayyy different from the ones we have today.

The only problem I'll have with this costume I'm sure will be the pants. Argh.

PluieEnfant: I'll ask her the next time I see her. I hadn't used boning before until my dress for AB07's ball required it in the bodice. She'll probably want to know if you were planning on lining the pants or not. I know she's made multiple southern bell type of costumes with the big hoop skirts (just gotta remember not to bring up the one where she had to put 5+ yards of material into a 25" waist...I think that would make anyone cry)...I can't find a good reference picture of Trowa to show her so I've been pulling up KH1 Riku in the mean time. If you've got a picture that I could show her (I know the outfit, but I can't find a good reference for her), it'd be awesome.

Miri: I'm biased so Preventer Quatre would be awesome (not to mention as soon as I get the sizing, I'm making a Preventer jacket for another Quatre cosplayer). Um, the White Fang one would be cool...not sure if anyone would recognize the fantasy one as awesome as it might be. You'd probably get confused as some version of Fai from Tsubasa Reservior Chronicle.

Yeah, I know no one would recognise that one, but the creator (or one of, not sure if there are multiple) or a GW fantasy doujin asked me (more like she dared me XD) to make it, and I think the design is simple enough that I'd like to try it.

I REALLY want a Preventer jacket! They look like they take a long time though >_>

By White Fang, do you mean the black jumpsuits? Becayse I had thought about that too. I'm just hesitant because of my hips. XP

Yeah, I mean the cloak. I loved this outfit in the series. :-) Made him look so great!! *sigh* I don´t know what to do next ´cause I´m too fat for EVERYTHING and I´m depressed. No one comments on my photos anymore. Perhaps I´m just too impatient.

First off, you're so not fat. ;p Do whatever Heero cosplay you want and you'll look great.

Also, don't worry if you don't get comments on all of your photos. People often comment on just one two out of a group for someone, and it would be hard since you've got so many photos to comment on them all. ^^; But it doesn't mean people don't like you anymore. :)

JeiC: Okeedoke, I've found a picture of Trowa's poofy pants. This picture is really hard to find considering it's the only full-body picture of his opening outfit. -_- Anyway, here it is.Trowa's Opening Poofy Pants (http://www.geocities.com/eyesofaclown/images/3rd-off-trowa01.jpg) Wow, your friend sounds amazing. 5 yards? I wish I was that amazing.

By the way everyone, I'm planning on doing Trowa's series outfit. I was thinking about it and realized that I wouldn't feel complete without it. So, that's three outfits that I'm currently working on. Yay! I even might go as Ozzie-Trowa. Sigh. I'll make every costume that he's ever been officially drawn in. XD

By White Fang, do you mean the black jumpsuits? Becayse I had thought about that too. I'm just hesitant because of my hips. XP

It took my mother and I about a month to make the pattern (trial and error). The biggest pain really is the overlays, the piping, and the zippers (mainly the pocket ones). The ones we make are fully lined so that takes time as well. On average, give yourself 2 or 3 weekends to make the final version. I honestly have a hard time judging how long it will take because either we were running 2 jackets at the same time or running a jacket with another costume at the same time.

Heh...no, it's that one with the khaki-colored shirt and darker colored pants. At least I think they look like White Fang uniforms: http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g19/Mirisha/Quatre%20Cosplay%20References/cal7.jpg

Heero(f): Don't worry about people not commenting on pictures. A lot of people could be like me...rarely ever comment on things. If I do, it usually is a long time after someone's commented on mine. I'm just horrible at responding to stuff like that.

PluieEnfant: I'll get that picture to her, thanks.

PluieEnfant: I believe what those types of pants are normally made out of is some kind of dense fabric foam mix... as in the dense fabric attached to the foam, kind of like headliner material. Easiest way to mimic this without it looking odd would prolly be to just interface all of the fabric you're planning to use and just iron the living crap out of it when you go to wear it.

JeiC: *Lurvs up on joo after being a pain in the ass when joo were making my jacket* Other than Son Goku and Roxas, I'm not too sure what I'm bringing to Mangunext...wanna do preventers again or something else?



Everybody else: Heya, I'm the preventers Wufei in the pictures JeiC posted earlier. Started off like many loving the crap out of Duo and eventually made my way over to having the angry/snarky one as my favorite, could be the mirroring personality traits, who knows. Eventually I do really want to make his outfit from the series and I've been working off and on on his outfit from the 2002 calander, the blue top with silver dragons. Also insanely excited about the preventers group for AB, how is it AB ends up with all the amazing GW action after the series is long out of being on the air?

Oh yea and also as soon as I get my ass back out to the garage I'll prolly be finishing up shaping JeiC's keyblade and getting to work on my Dao-shu for Wufei. Really just need the handle and the hand guard then I can figure out the whole sheath thing.

hm...with a hakama pattern, you're going to have all those pleats. I'd be interested in seeing how they managed to get around that.

Well... I'm assuming they were hakama to start with. She called them "samurai pants." They did not have pleats, so I'm guessing that was one of the things she altered.

Here's a picture, from our judging references: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=1237795

She showed us how she had made them -- she flared the pants and then put an elastic band at the ankle. When she pushes the elastic up to knee level, the pants blouse out. Simple, but effective. :)

However, now that I see the pants in question (thanks for the reference image, PluieEnfant), I'm thinking the pattern should be more like the thighs on a pair of jodhpurs, since the inside line is rather straight and it's only the outside that blouses out.


Miri --

I *love* the manga shot of Quatre, so I vote for that one. :toothy: On the other hand, I've always had a weakness for the EW dress uniforms, so I'd like to see that one, too.

The fantasy pic is gorgeous, and is now on my hard drive :) , but I agree with JeiC that you'd be pegged as a CLAMP character instead. But there's nothing to say that you couldn't make it anyway...

JeiC
08-27-2007, 07:41 PM
PluieEnfant: Okay, got so better ideas. Since Trowa's pants are oddly shaped in their poofy-ness, she suggested shaping the pants first and then putting the boning down the outer leg seam. Just gotta watch out what kind of boning and how stiff.

AVAAntares: Oooh, I like that alternate idea...if she did start with a hakama, it really would have been interesting to see the alterations she did. I wear a hakama for Aikido, so seeing it go from that to Sora's overlay shorts is interesting...provided it started out as a hakama.

*tugs on Sukunai Kitsune's rattail* You need to let me know when you'll be getting ahold of our Quatre for sizing. shadowblaze is getting anxious to get started on his jacket for Trowa so I kinda want to give him an idea of when he can get started. Not sure what else I want to do for MN. I'll catchya online. Me thinks someone might be disappointed if we don't give them some GW love though.

All I know is that what I started on a whim at AB06 has culminated into one good sized group. AB08 isn't going to know what hit it. Especially if we decide to go with shadowblaze's idea.

Easiest way to trick the camera is to stand at a 3/4 pose towards it and place your weight on your back leg. Also one of the other common tricks I've heard is to "lead with your hips" basically how you see character artwork done where a guy will lean backwards in a hunch instead forward.

JeiC
08-28-2007, 03:30 PM
...or in my case, be obnoxiously tall. It seems to make people think I'm a guy at first, I dunno. Either that or I scare people.

Yeah, yeah, I got stuck with crappy genetics for cosplaying...

If the costume allows for it (something like KH2 Riku=no) I usually put 1" shoulder pads in my costumes (and I hate shoulder pads) to make my sloping girlie shoulders straighter and it usually fills that area out a little more as well. My Preventer jacket definitely makes my shoulders appear broader so I look like I have smaller hips.

Hm, about the only other thing I might suggest is like Sukunai Kitsune said and shift your hips forward so that your back is in a straight(er) line. Though I'm more use to hearing it as "tuck your butt in," but her's is nicer. I'll add various things in depending on the character...like with battle stances for Riku, I tend to stand with my feet further apart and bent at the knees, tucking my butt in, which gives me more stability (especially if I'm holding Oblivion up instead of resting on my shoulder...I've been tackle glomped in that costume before - falling while not hurting the other person and trying to not damage my keyblade is really hard). Duo...well, I've got a lot of sitting down pictures...still working on various stances that I could do with him.

AVAAntares
08-29-2007, 03:26 PM
Hmm... I don't know enough German to help you, but here they're usually called body briefers or body shapers, and they're sold everywhere from Wal-Mart to Nordstrom. I would think most large department stores would carry them. Maybe you can search online and find a place that carries them locally? You DO want to try them on in person, if possible.

Eek! Ace bandages are dangerous if used incorrectly. Don't use them to flatten body parts! I know somebody who broke a rib trying to bind herself flat to play a guy... Well, all that info is available in the crossplay thread, so I won't reiterate it here. :)

Wow, I'm back already. XD Ahem. Anyway. I can't seem to find the right color for my Trowa wig. I've thought about it and although Katiebair used #6 Lavish on amphigory (which is the same #6 in Cosworx, considering they're the same brand) I want to be as close to his hair as possible. What is it anyway? It's like...mustard. Auburn mustard? From what I've seen, the auburns are too red and the browns are really dark. I haven't seen anything yellow enough to be Trowa-hair. Would it be wrong to not get his hair color perfectly? It's so....yellow. Mustard...Colonel Mustard. XD
