Share your Gundam Cosplay!

I for one never get much feedback about my cosplays here on cos.com. Even though various Gundam series are fairly popular, it's not something that gets much attention here on this site.

If you've got a cosplay you like to improve or just get some kind of feeback on, please share it!

Pretty much everything in my gallery is Gundam cosplay, and they are all up for modifying/ improving upon.

One note~ DON'T BE A HATER! Honest criticism is one thing, telling people they are stupid for cosplaying (~insert character here~) is quite another.

Oh man, a good chunk of my gallery is Gundam too. I'm pretty sure I sold my soul to the franchise long ago because I've been obsessing over it for almost ten years now. Shame UC is so underloved by the US anime fandom :/ Anyway, my cosplay!


Black dress!Aina Sakhalin (08th MS Team)
Fruity civilian outfit!Ghinius Sakhalin (08th MS Team)
Another civilian!Aina
Elpeo Puru (ZZ)
And the lone AU character, Kyoji Kasshu (G)

Aaaand I have Quess Paraya currently in progress, and I plan to do like every version of Ghinius ever. Lord only knows what else will pop up.

LOL Quess. XD I love and hate Char's Counterattack for so many reasons! And you cosplayed Puru! I LOVE Puru for no rational reason I can name. lol

I was going to pimp out some friends, but they don't have any pics of their costume here on Cos.com. :< So I'll just post some of my costumes instead~

Char. Because I love him ~ http://www.cosplay.com/costume/365218/

Garma, because it turned out so FABULOUS lol ~http://www.cosplay.com/costume/338016/

I don't have any AU yet, but I am working on Zechs. I have everything for the costume, I've just been lazy about it. I'm also working on a version of Haman from Char's Deleted Affair.

I'm going to be at a Gundam panel with a friend as Katejina who's a panelist. So they'll have a duo of two of the most hated women in the Universal Century. I expect some joke-hate, though if there's any serious hate I'll kindly leave it to con staff if need be. I expect UC fans to be cool IRL, though you never know (online, on the other hand, I've basically been told to DIAF for liking Quess :/)

Ooh, what have your friend's done? And Garma is indeed fabulous~ One of these I'll do him myself. And SHAAAAA. Even though I don't really care for him, I need one when I'm Quess ;A; and UC cosplay can be a bit sporadic as AWA so... *crosses fingers*

MAYBE YOU COULD HELP MY PLIGHT ONE OF THESE YEARS :|

Holy loli Hamans batman, post that shit when you do!

Fuck yeah UC cosplay.

UC cosplay is sporadic no matter where you go. ;______; And I think Quess is a bit like Relena as far as female Gundam characters go. The first time you see them, it's like, 'WTF is wrong with you?!?' It's only the second or third time watching them in action can you understand their characters. While neither is my favorite female, I don't really hate them anymore. Quess still makes me WTF, but I blame that on Tomino. ALL the Quess hate it Tomino's fault. It's like he only sets women up to cause conflict then die.

My friend ShibaAyame did a really awesome Lady Une, and I made another friend a Sayla Mass costume. Not to mention pretty much everyone who showed up @ the Otakon Gundam shoots were wonderful people.

Sadly, I haven't been to AWA in so many years because there is only a month between in and Otakon. If my foray into the Artist's Alley at Katsucon goes well, maybe I can consider going to AWA in 2012.

Oh lord yes. And now we have to put up with ARE YOU FROM HETALIA?!?! My best friend cosplayed Bernie Wiseman from 0080 and some Hetalia fangirls called him an "unsexy Amercia" behind his back. I'm worried that I'll get like... glomped or groped or whatever else unpleseant they do when I cosplay uniform!Ghinius because it looks enough like one of the outfits Prussia has to get mistaken. Even though there are some pretty big differences, if some fangirl is just acting on what she sees out the corner of her eye...

Relena got off to an awkward start but got better in the end, and has the misfortune of getting in the way of a horrendously popular yaoi 'ship. That's why she's so hated I think. My friend cosplayed her and got harassed out of a Gundam Wing meet/shoot for it a few years ago :/

And Quess is just a realistic, non-sugar coated portrayal of a 13 year-old girl from a dysfunctional family who, being naive and idealistic, fell right into the trap of an older man who wanted to use her. I think her purpose in the movie is to show how low Char is willing to go, and how corrupt he's become that he'd use a kid like that.

I relate to her on a very personal level too (which is why I like her), so the nastier bashing she gets I'm not at all crazy for :/

ANYWAY, I want to go to Otakon one of these years. Especially since it was on my birthday this year and kewjrnvrog!11!1 tons of Gundam shit ;A; If Kawamoto comes back I'd sell my soul to go :|

I have to admit, I've gotten a ton of satisfaction in seeing Amuro own Char. I love them both; and they could be a great team, but when they fight it's crazy.

See, therein lies my problem. Just because you may not like something doesn't mean you should be mean to them. Not a lot of people like SEED, but I made damn sure the SEED cosplayers got their time in front of the cameras.

I had to come down kind of hard on one dude who was hating on SEED. I made it very clear I wouldn't tolerate haters; and since I'd set up the photoshoots, it was play by my rules or go on.

I cosplay from many different Gundam series, both UC and AU. Long list is long, but my gallery here is pretty much up to date.

I often run the Gundam gatherings at Fanime and Anime Expo, and yeah, sometimes we have problems with the haters, but normally it's not too bad. Although I feel like there are less Gundam cosplayers attending nowadays. D:

I'm not currently working on any Gundam costumes, but I do have two ideas running around in my head. XD

I've been through you gallery a couple of times. You do some good work, Mirai!

Thankfully it was just that one guy, and he wasn't an unpleasant person. After I talked to him everything was O.K.

there is a significant decrease in Gundam cosplayers these days. At Otakon we had a pretty decent turn out, but that was in part to me and other people spreading the news of our photoshoots by word of mouth. I think Bandai and Gundam in general having a larger presence at the convention this year helped a bit... though they scheduled all the major Gundam related things all in the same 3 or four hours on Saturday. :<

I cosplay almost exclusively from Gundam Seed and in particular Lacus Clyne. My obsession with her rivals that of Meer Campbells, which is really saying something considering what Meer did to be just like her idol.

I cosplay Lacus Clyne from Gundam Seed Destiny. I hated the color pink yet I love cosplaying her

Old Old Version >.<

Older Version/

Newer Version

I know there can be improvements on the Obi (for the newer version I had unfortunatley forgotten my bow at home since it snaps on. I want to make a new one of how it's truly supposed to look but that will take some time.

As for the wig, the older wig annoyed me so I got a new wig, I prefer this wig for this version of her since it's has a curly ponytail. Heavy though >.<

Ya know... I'm still looking for Gundam cosplayers to share on my blog. Could I share both of your Lacus cosplays, AngelStarAvalon and Krys-chan?

( I'll PM with details if you'd like to be featured on my Blog.)
