Hi, I'm looking to find anyone else who is currently working or thinking about doing a Gundam SEED character for cosplay. I'm currently working on the character Athrun Zala's outfit. I have been watching Gundam SEED since last year when it first came out and have yet to see/find any US Cosplayers.

I know the series is going to debut in the USA in April. Should I just wait till then, the popular of the series would then seriously get HUGE. :chatah:

Wow...and I just posted on this last night.


*points to his thread in "seeking Cosplayers"*

You going to either ACEN or Otakon by chance? I'll be doing Athrun as well, but I'd buy extra wigs for either Nicol or Yzak if I could get a group going.

Oh darn. I wish I could those cons, but they're far to far... I live in California and would prob. attend Fanime or PMX/AnimeExpo... :dance:

Aww ^.^()

From what I know, the West coast seems to pay a bit more attention to Gundam cosplay than the East coast. It's probably due to the fact that the Gundam franchise as a whole is so insanely popular in Japan(And therefor, Gundam cosplay, ESPECIALLY SEED right now, is as well).

Good luck finding people. SEED will probably start to become rather popular this summer...at least that's what I'm hoping ^.^() (Though I prefer the Gundam series from the original timeline, myself)

Wow. You enjoy the original Gundam series? Same here. Nothing can top what the Zabi family does in that series.

well i'll be kira at otakon but I guess that doesn't do you any good. sorries! one of my best friends is going as lacus/rakusu (however u want to spell it) in a few different outfits to a couple different cons but i'm pretty sure we're all sticking east coast since we're over here and too cheap to fly. but yeh i bet popularity will rise quite drastically when it comes over here, so you should find some other cosplayers. and i know i saw a gorgeous lacus at katsucon so there are some out there now too!

Hey, Vanessa, it mirai_noah from LiveJournal!

I was planning to make/buy Murrue's uniform sometime in the (hopefully) near future (you can buy some SEED costumes on Hobby Link Japan (www.hlj.com)). But right now my main costume I'm working on is Mirai's pink Earth Federation uniform from 0079.

I have a Kira civilian cosplay outfit, really I like the character design but I haven't seen much of the anime. I played him at Anime Next and just wore the outfit today for Japan Club in my school. His outfit is so stylish, I just wish he'd wear red pants and not green.
