Well, this yeah I did my first full-fledged gundam cosplay using featherweight's mecha cosplay guide. (Bought the .pdf version that was provided.) And needless to say, I had fun doing it, even though my legs completely fell apart on the first day of the con, haha. The pictures that my family took were crap, but I did manage to find the guy that took my picture and here it is:

Heck someone was even awesome enough to record my skit at the con!

Though I will admit, I like seeing pictures of myself more than videos, dunno why thought >_<.

Anyways, after much thought and consideration, and the trials and errors of my first gundam cosplay, I'm happy to say I'll be doing them for a while. Why? Because I think they're fun putting together and seeing the reactions I get from people. Not to mention, it's a nice change of view from overly done animes. Not that I dislike them, it's just, people need to see something different besides a couple dozen naruto and bleach cosplays.

Now for next year, I'm debating on a couple gundam cosplays, though technically, one of them isn't from the gundam universe. Choice #1 is Deathscythe from gundam Wing:

And choice #2 is Dai-Guard from, well, Dai-Guard:

So, I'm asking you lovely people, which would you like to see if you saw a giant robot at your convention? I still have a little over 11 months before the next con I'm going to, but chances are, I'll be starting it up around Christmas because I wanna make sure everything goes right.

I'd like to see a Rick-dom or the Guntank. I dream of the day I get to see these IRL.

I personally am partial to both versions of the Shenlong.
