Gundam Mobile suite Cosplay

Hello , Im looking to get some help and Ideas for my next Cosplay and pick up some techniques.

I actually dont know where to start with this.

But I am planning On going as the Justice from Gundam Seed.

I've already started on the Head so far but Im somewhat stuck now.
I used featherweights tutorial for that and I now have a base but I dont know how to build around that.

I plan on using corrugated plastic.

Corrugated plastic sounds like a good idea to me, you may also want to consider some styrene for detail parts and such. Now that you have essentially a head skeleton, what you want to do is think about how to build the shapes of the gundam's head. The easiest to start with is probably the "mohawk" that it has at the top. Seems as though it is fairly rectangular. So start with some posterboard or other sturdy paper (you can even do it with less than sturdy paper if you feel patient/adventurous) and infer on the general size of one of the sides of the piece. Then press it against your helmet for a sort of test fit. Mark where there are problem areas and trim as necessary. Once you assemble the "prototype", these serve as your templates and you can proceed to cut the coroplast to what you like. Keep in mind that your coroplast will be significantly thicker than the material you use to make the template so be sure to compensate for that.

Thank you very much for the reply. Yeah I was thinking about that and I put that Idea

Try use paper model, it will help u how to make a gundam suit,what u need to do is just enlarge the papermodel(because papermodel is just about 30cm tall~you must let it be able to wear,to be a "suit")~i use Adobe Illustrator to enlarge,it really works~~

this is my pics about making the new Gundam suit (or not gundam :P)

Oh wow looks like you are doing the Sinanju There buddy , it looks great.

Where would I find these paper models? I know for sure there arent any of the Justice but I have seen the freedoms alot and they almost have exactly the same frames. So I could probably use that amd change the pieces of armor that are different.
