These are amazing!! haha, I just got a Strike Gundam model kit and was thinking about using that as a template to making a Gundam Cosplay. Then I saw your stuff and thought....if it can't look as good as this...I'm going to stick to photography. If I ever see this walking around at a Kon, I will be asking to do a photoshoot (please!! ^_^)
sir, if I may ask... do you have a full body side view of any of your gundam costumes (or even a diagram. I browsed your gallery but couldn't find any)? I'm trying to find what's wrong with my mecha costume's proportions. I found the fault on the front view proportions with the help of your tutorial (thanks for that btw)... but I'm having a great difficulty sideways. A picture would be of great help.
thanks, 2 last questions. 1: scale of 1-10, how comfortable is walking? I mean most mechs stand wider and have thicker legs than the average person, so it must be wierd not being able to close your legs all the way. 2: is there a way to adjust for that so you can stand normally?
Thanks! The scaling is tricky...kinda got it through trial and error throughout my cosplay years. Each part of the costume has a different scale and sometimes I will use my previous GUndam costume to adjust the scale using Photoshop until the mecha looks balanced. (it can never be to exact scale to the model kit because human proportion is very different) Templates are kinda useless because of the restrictions as a costume..
I dun have work in progress pics though...but I am compiling a tutorial for it
