Mobile Suit Gundam
DescriptionThe outfit was ordered from Cosplay Fox on eBay. I like their work. The gloves are Civil War US Cavalry gauntlet reproductions, and the boots are from halloweencostumes.com.
The real work here in in the head gear. The mask came with the Char Costume Set from HobbyLinkJapan, (I know, I paid too much just for the mask, but what can I say?) but came with a white mesh in the eye-holes. I cut that out and inserted some mirror-lenses from a pair of aviator sunglasses.
The helmet was built around the helmet from the Hasbro Star Wars Darth Vader Voice Changer Helmet (I have a Rubies Vader helmet, so I used the crappy Voice Changer one I wouldn't mind having incomplete). I made a base for the bill and crest out of aluminum foil and sculpted around that with Sculpey oven-bake polymer clay. I hot glued this to the helmet and spray-painted the whole assembly white. (I would, after some mishaps, recommend always using primer first.)
In the future I would like to improve the belt, and make the gun.
