|Awards :||Best Female - Cosplay Corner May 2010|
|OK, my second attempt at a Gundam. I've been telling everyone how the UK cosplay scene needs to have a Gundam to top it all off. I've learnt new methods since last year so hopefully it'll work.|
I AM DONE!

Stage 8 (Posted 2nd May 2010)
LAST HURDLE RARRGHHH!
So it was a bad idea to leave the legs/wings until the las three weeks but school work's to blame, right?!
Stage 7 (Posted 28th January 2010)
Wing Zero has risen frm the ashes... of hiatus. After more than a 'few' months of inactivity, I'm happy to say that the project is back on track! I'm working on it as much as I can in between of A Levels/exams/part time job to get it finished by May's Expo.
The whole upper body is pretty much finished, all's left are the legs, feet and wings. Huzzah!
Stage 6 (Posted 17th August 2009)
The head is finished :) It has gone from looking like a Spartan helmet to Master Chief to a Stormtrooper to finally... a Gundam head!
The torso is also nearing completion and so are the wing frames.
Stage 5 (Posted 21st June 2009)
You have no idea how much I hate circuiting. But it's all done with, they light up when I speak. Time to implant these in the chest :)
Wing frame's finished.
Stage 4 (Posted 12th June 2009)
With the lovely help from the experienced Companion_Cube and K4tt, I'm going to try my hand at circuting LEDs to the eyes and chest so that when I speak/noise is caused they will illuminate. The threshold decibel level will be adjusted so that the generall hubbub of Expo won't cause it to be constantly illuminated. I've ordered all the components needed for circuting, eee I can't wait to apply the Physics that I've learnt from 6th form into a Gundam project! Now the total expenditure has been bumped up to £148 - I will be expect the final cost to be £200 since I still have to buy latex and paint :P
The wing frame is looking good so far, it's not as heavy as I predicted it would be and I trust that it's strong enough for me not to worry about them breaking due to the weight of the wings themselves. Pretty good for cardboard I have to say!
Stage 3 (Posted 6th June 2009)
15 sheets of plastazote arrived two days ago; I grinned in glee and got to work.
The centre torso mainframe is finished, it's purposefully made small (and bodyhugging) so when I build pieces on top of it it won't end up being overly huge and out of proportion. Photos when I've done more work to it otherwise you'll be spammed with worthless progress photos XD
Left glove's finished, right glove is on it's way (I have to do THAT all over again?! It's starting to bore me!)
Stage 2 (Posted 1st June 2009)
£110 worth of plastazote has been ordered!
First rifle has been completed! (constructed, weighted, latexed, painted, detailed)
Second rifle on it's way.
Left hand on it's way.
Stage 1 (Posted 28th May 2009)
Twin rifles construction begun, got as far as making the inner mainframe and layering plastazote on the outside but then I poured hot glue all over my left palm by accident and now I have a second degree burn :C I can't do anything with my hand in this state so all construction is brought to a halt.
Planning Stage (Posted 27th May 2009)
- 36 ultra bright green LEDs to illuminate the chestpiece pending order.
