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!

0.0 Trying really really hard not to over-squee here but it's so difficult. This was my favourite anime ever and it's the reason I got into anime and manga. What you've done so far is amazing! I saw the hand on the home page and was literally bouncing in my seat with joy! Good luck with this! ^_^

Toshi-chan posted on 4 June, 2009 - 12:49

Nana: Your comments are really encouraging, Grandpa :3 Thank you. Demented Kid: We can both be big robots, you = phallic, me = geometrical. Y/N? Dani: Only to satisfy your G-Wing fangirl needs. Sorry, no Trowa Gundam yet! Sam: Nah dude, Gabranth blew me away at how similar your resemblance to Basch is!

Ragepotato posted on 11 June, 2009 - 18:32

I'MA FLY YOU.

k4tt posted on 18 June, 2009 - 09:40
Oh yeah, two things. are you gonna do battle damage on yours? Also, have you thought about how you're going to do the sphere in the chest? When I made Nanoha's Staff, I bought some clear acryllic baubles (comes in two parts, snap together) spray painted the inside, and mounted that LED unit we talked about inside the sphere. You can probably do something similar, ie spraying the inside of the half sphere green, and have the LEDs behind. That way, you're not limited to just green LEDs and you can introduce some nice effects too depending on the different colours of LEDs. I'll have to PM you my progress so far. Anyway, good luck on the rest of the build. Can't wait to see the finished prototype. ^__^ Keep up the great work!

Odd-One-Out posted on 19 June, 2009 - 15:25
I have considered battle damage, I will consider in more depth when it comes to the painting stage. Mhm that was my plan, I've left the acrylic clear for now so when the LEDs are done I can see what sort of glow it gives. Definitely update me with your progress :D

Pem posted on 21 June, 2009 - 20:52
My dear Robin, I am glad to see your new anti Sheriff armor is coming along splendidly! I shall not fear for my safety whenever I am by your side this coming May!

SherlockHulmes posted on 11 July, 2009 - 18:56
Have to admit this is going to be a *liiiitttlle* impressive. ;) How are you doing it? Is that Plastazote? Looks fantastic! You and Xaeraela (can never spell his name! XD) are super awesome at this stuff. :D

KhaosKreator posted on 15 July, 2009 - 17:00
Your light up circuit thing has given me ideas for cogsworth. I hope you don't mind if I borrow it for him? You can both have darlek like conversations with each other lighting up. Tab

Odd-One-Out posted on 15 July, 2009 - 18:36
Of course Tab, but the credit really should go to k4tt here on cosplayisland since it was he who had the original idea of voice activated LEDs and the original sources of materials.

k4tt posted on 4 August, 2009 - 21:27
Looking real good there. Is that the final piece you're using for the front, or did you just use that as a compare to see what it would look like? I have some spare Clear Acrylic Spheres if you need any

BladeyCakes posted on 6 August, 2009 - 11:19
Wow *_* its looking so amazing!!

k4tt posted on 17 August, 2009 - 17:32

perfectly_purple posted on 17 August, 2009 - 21:20
Everytime I see this is updated I get even more excited about seeing it! *squee*

Odd-One-Out posted on 17 August, 2009 - 21:33
Thanks everyone :] The kitchen floor is busy being covered with acrylic paint pots, cutting mats, X-Acto knives (oops, shouldn't really leave these lying around!) and various pieces of plastazote ;__;

Anonymous posted on 17 August, 2009 - 23:10
AWESOME! It's coming along so well =D Nice going. Lol yes Pheebs, take your own advice and stop leaving knives on the floor >_<

miruru posted on 18 August, 2009 - 11:36

Guys you make me happy deep down inside! At the mo the only plan is Expo because it's kind of hefty to pack into a car and I'm busy with school IRL. I'll see about selling it off post-Expo.

TheInkOfDoom posted on 8 February, 2010 - 01:30
So beyond words! This is looking STUNNING. I'm in awe...

Pez posted on 31 May, 2010 - 16:38
You are absolutely incredible. The Gundam was beautiful, and kudos to you and your spotters for surviving such a busy Expo! Watching you go up the steps at the masquerade was kind of scary lol.

Anonymous posted on 31 May, 2010 - 16:44
You far exceeded any expectations anyone had for this. I'm just speechless. You're the most determined person I know, this is phenomenal! To see this in person was a fantastic experience.

Dusttee posted on 31 May, 2010 - 17:40
You really did look absolutely incredible. When i saw you, carefully, walking up the stairs for the masqurade i was blown away (and scared you wouldn't be able to get up the stairs) Every part of your cosplay was stunning. and as Pez said, well done for surviving such a busy expo (y)

Defrain posted on 31 May, 2010 - 20:20

AmethystEyes posted on 2 June, 2010 - 09:24
You did a fantastic job on this! I missed May expo but saw these photos coming up on facebook and actually thought someone had brought an actual model in!

Odd-One-Out posted on 2 June, 2010 - 13:13
@AmethystEyes: LOOOL noooo I assure you that I am standing inside it XD; @Kitsune Cosplay UK: Aww thank you, yes I am actually rather dinky and small when not kitted up in a mecha suit :P @everyone else: It was rather airy actually, it's a little warm with the helmet on but once the helmet comes off it's fine. My legs... my shoulders... I can't move them even today!

Smallfry0 posted on 4 June, 2010 - 22:55

Pippin4242 posted on 29 March, 2012 - 13:46
Woah, that's an insane costume! I can't believe you're in there - I can't even picture how you must be posed within the suit! So cool, and I can't believe you did it on such a small budget (comparatively).

Progress Journal

2nd May 2010

Stage 8

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?!

28th January 2010

Stage 7

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!

17th August 2009

Stage 6

The head is finished :) It has gone from looking like a Spartan helmet to Master Chief to a Stormtrooper to finally... a Gundam head!
Just latex and paint left :)

The torso is also nearing completion and so are the wing frames.

Stage 5

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

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

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!)

1st June 2009

Stage 2

£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

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

- 36 ultra bright green LEDs to illuminate the chestpiece pending order.
- 6mm and 12mm thickness Plastazote pending order.
- Long plastic tubes already collected for the twin rifle.
- Latex at the ready.
- Rifles to begin construction as soon as my Further Maths exam is complete.
