Gurren Lagann is a favorite of mine. At the time there were lots of the characters but none of the mecha itself so I just thought of paying homage to this cool mecha. Making Gurren was fun since it's not everyday your mecha body has a face. I especially like how the Lagann head turned out after all the designing to get a decent face. The biggest surprise and honor I got from making this and bringing it to Cosplay Mania was getting acknowledged by Team Tuxedo's Jin Joson aka behindinfinity.
