Yay! I hope so, too... I've managed to miss you at every con for the last year and a half. What are the odds?

Kori, you may also want to crosspost in the GW cosplay thread to pull in anyone who isn't checking the local con forums. Maybe we can get the rest of the ACEN group to come. (Or I can do it, if you prefer...)

It's a long thread, and it hasn't been terribly active lately, but people are usually pretty good about checking when there's a new post.

welcome to cosplay.com! This thread is in the Youmacon forum which is an anime convention happening from Oct. 30-Nov 2. Will you be coming to this covention? It would be really cool if you came to Youmacon. Do you specialize in making Gundam cosplay of the robots or the characters?

yeah i do really make customizations in gundams, super robots, power ranger ZORDS and some mech cosplay stuff but totaly im a FILIPINO and im in the PHILIPPINES rightn now i dont have a passport or VISA but i hope i can help you some way though it is very hard that im quite far from you guys...

you can go to my gallery to check out my cosplay stuffs...

about in making gundams first you must get a certain gundam model you want to make for cosplay

then try to make a architectural sketch of it then measure it w/ your body (this is what we call "Scaling") we need to measure out the size of our body of the toy then convert it your size of your body, thought it depends if you want it to make it very detailed and proportioned or you want a mobility type gundam.

if you try yo check in my gallery there are some gundams in which i made it a bit detailey, accurate and proportioned and at the same time very mobile whenever you try to move while wearing it.

**************

there are some cosplayers from France, Korea, japan, and Singapore go here in the Philippines to cosplay...

though i really wish to cosplay for WCS but i think it will be a dream only for me....

Thats really cool! You should look up HeavyArmsDan he also cosplays as gundams. I also looked up some of your stuff and it looks really good! i hope that you will make it to WCS one day. I wish i could go to the Philippines to cosplay and stuff, but i want to go to japan first, even if i'm not cosplaying there i just want to go. It is really hard to be able to get out of your own country and see other countries but i think it is totally worth it.

I noticed that your gundam cosplays are scaled to be very large. Are there size regulations at the conventions you go to? A lot of the conventions in America have size regulations so costumes and props are not allowed to be over a certain height unless you are in competition.

no there are no strict regulations regards to cosplay to the philippines "its a FREE WORLD" cosplay, you can cosplay what ever character you want and cosplay it the way you want to!

all i know here in this site is "GUNDAMER (germany or russia), Mirage_studio (singapore), GOLDY (japan), knightwind (Philippines), naoko and lenneth (singapore)...endimon (filipino in JAPAN)

we gundam cospalyers cosplay the way we want because we want to make our costumes in our own way in a way that showing our own style and creativity among its specifications...

if you cosplay here, the totaly number of cosplayers here is more than 500 cosplayers from different regions...because some are US influenced and some are JAPANESE influenced, from culture to movies is the basis in cosplay here in the philippines.

even online games from KOREA, Playsation GAmes are also used for cosplay.

thats why i love making GIGANTIC costumes to make it a bit real and attracting in the same way

because cosplay and making costumes is more deeper than the ussual cosplay... we apply knowledge in our costumes

in mech cosplay we apply and improvise engines, lights, smoke effects, etc... we are just doing some exhibits in our own cosplay instead of competing in cosplay...we just show our skills to public..

you can use my gundams as for reference because i ussually posting all my works in other sites but not in local sites here in the philippines

and thanks for dropping by in my gallery...

talk about WCS...i hope someone and somewhere would sponsor me to that event...hehehehe some dream eh!

generally the same things apply in america. People cosplay from all kinds of popular media. if it can be thought of, it will be cosplayed. a lot of the bigger stuff is usually only seen in competition or outside of the actual venue because the hotel and convention centers that host the conventions aren't big enough to hold the costume. (Low celings) At the last anime convention i went to there were 10,000 attendees and about 7,000 of them cosplay. New cosplayers and expert cosplayers. i wouldn'r be able to tell you how many of those 7,000 are expert cosplayers since i did not take a survey of the entire convention. People from all over the USA came to that convention and it is not even the biggest convention in the US. Anime Expo is the largest Anime Convention in the USA and San Diego Comic Con is the biggest convention in the USA.

oh i see, here in the Philippines, only MANILA area can have cosplay activities, we dont have any cosplay activities for provincial areas, thats why the total of us is only 500, in experts i didnt even count how many of them but i know their faces and how they cosplay...

i usually cosplay only when i need to or when im in a mood to cosplay.

but i wish to cosplay even in US, japan, KOReA, singapore, etc... heheeh some dream dont you think?

and about the place, the ceiling is very high just like a normal MALL or like a stage theater.... thats why we dont have problems in cosplaying in a very large, big, bulky or tall costumes

yeah that would be convenient to have tall celings. Most conventions just don't have the high celings unless it is in competition. oh well. I think it would be great if you came to american conventions. I've heard that the dynamic is different from conventions in japan, singapore, china, korea, and the philippines. WCS seems to be run like that. but i can't say for sure because i've never been there! n.n
