View Full Version : fan-created gundam or canon gundam?

This past June, I officially did my first cosplay, a fan-based model of the original RX-78-2 Gundam. It held most of the original pieces like the headpiece and torso, but the arms and the legs (which unfortunately were destroyed on the first day of the con) were of my own design. Heck even the paintjob for the torso was different. But nonetheless, it was a Gundam cosplay, and while I didn't win anything, I still had fun doing it. Heck more than half the people there were happy to see something other than Naruto and the like, and I've had questions coming up if I'm going to do another gundam cosplay next year.

I have decided I will for sure, but I need some opinions. A canon Gundam will instantly be recognized, but a fan-based one will allow more customization, probably making it something very unique. What do you think?

It's a mech. People dig mechs. Go nuts.
