Description
My first Robot costume and the advent of the Wessex Anime 'Robot Pants'

We had great fun doing this, comedy retro Giant Robot costumes in a slapstick 'Robot Wars' spoof deathmatch....... RooooooBooooooo Weeeeedgeeeeeee!!!

We even managed to get both hotel lifts to deliver Geki and Geta simultaniously to the convention loby for a grand fighter entrance.

This costume was for the wessex "Robot Wars" skit, which featured:
Ilpala - Gekiganger III
Mad Baz - Geta Robo
The hairy one - Ruri Ruri
Cardcaptor - Gai Daigoji

My photo's from this era are pretty dodgy so for a couple of them I have been a bit cheeky and used some nearly cosntructed pics - I seemed to be wearing well sexy stripy PJ's in the original pictures...... so I've photoshoped them out :P

Haha that was legendary! I'm sure we can get someone to do Ruri, just got to keep them away from the lolicons ;)

Maybe Cece would re-wear his Gai!?!? Oh I feel epic Nadesico group mark 2 forming *foams*

Actualy when I showed Leena some artbooks she rather fancied Ruri's Neko outfit, so that space may be filled ^_-
Have to keep her safe from the Loli's and the furries then though :P

Awesome cosplay. I love Nadesico. You've done an excellent job. You really can pull off robot/mecha cosplays well.
