View Full Version : A rather serious question about a cosplay (involving the Gundam 00 Movie)

Hey folks, how's it going?

Well, I'm alright, but I do have a rather serious question. By now, if you enjoyed Gundam 00, you know about the movie coming out sometime this year. And also about the press release of the new gundam mobile suit pictures. Well, after thinking about it for a good while, I've decided that I would like to do the 00 Quan [T], or Quanta gundam, based on pictures from the press releases. But as I said, I do have a serious question. Since this movie is not due out in Japan until September or so, could Sunrise actually press charges on me for possibly messing with time-sensitive material? I'm not planning on making a profit with this in any shape or form, I just really wanna do it.

So if someone could tell me what the deal is with that kinda stuff, it would be greatly appreciated. And incase you're wondering, here's what 00 Quanta looks like.

I am also cosplaying "spoiler" outfits, and I had never thought of this before... I really doubt that they could or would. (this is in no way based on anything but my thought - dont sue me if you get sued! But then again I might too so I'll see you in... the next court over...)

The image is out, so they really can't say that what you are doing is worse than the person who scanned the image early. And, its original fan work, you didnt steal anything. But to be safe, hang a Copywrited symbol around your neck as bling.

NO. They already released the image, if you are not making money off of it there is no copyright infringement. If anything you are promoting their franchise.

I can't wait! I love Gundam 00!

I was also really happy to actually SEE Tieria...even if he is a computer. ^_^
