Title: 2020 Gundam Gathering
Post by: masao on January 17, 2020, 05:32:41 PM
I don't know how many people are planning to cosplay Gundam this year, but if there is enough interest, I'd like to organize a gathering.

Any characters from any Gundam series would qualify.

I'll edit this post accordingly if there's enough interest.

Please reply to this thread if you or you know friends who are planning to cosplay Gundam.

Tentative attendance:

- Athrun Zala (1) Red ZAFT Uniform from Gundam SEED [masao]
- Athrun Zala (2) Red ZAFT Uniform from Gundam SEED [teknetos]
- Bright Noa (1) from 0079 [Eri Kagami's partner]
- Chibodee Crocket (1) from G Gundam [teknetos]
- Domon Kasshu (1) from G Gundam [teknetos]
- Lacus Clyne (1) First songstress dress from Gundam SEED [masao's friend]
- Lacus Clyne (2) battle dress (?) from Gundam SEED [teknetos' friend]
- Montag (1) masked McGillis from Gundam IBO [olingamer]
- Sayla Mass (1) from 0079 [Eri Kagami]
- Yzak Jule (1) Red ZAFT Uniform from Gundam SEED [masao]

the same people are planning multiple cosplays, so I suspect we'll get a better idea of which cosplays each of us end up wearing to the gathering once we finalize attendance.

Yes, absolutely! I've been debating starting a thread as well..

Last year I went as Athrun Zala from SEED; this year one of my friends will be joining as Lacus Clyne. We may or may not have others joining our group, depending on who actually follows through with costuming. At the moment we have someone planning to be Shinn Asuka, and I'm trying to convince my Lacus' boyfriend to go as Kira Yamato..

We also have plans for some of the other Gundam series, if time and budget allows for it. Possibly characters from 00, Wing, or G Gundam.

Yay! that's great. I'm planning to go as Athrun and Yzak this year, and I have a friend who might be doing Lacus.

I hope we all get our planned costumes ready for Fanime. Do you and your friends have a preferred method of communications? So that even if we don't get enough people for the official gathering, we can all meet up and do photos anyway. (SEED fans unite~)

That's great to hear! I hope you do go through with it, and we can see you at the gathering if everything works out.

Awesome, what version of their costumes were you planning? I'm doing Athrun's ZAFT uniform and my Lacus will be wearing the white/purple dress from the beginning of the series. I'd love to see someone do Yzak's white uniform from Destiny~

We're also working on Chibodee Crocket and Domon Kasshu from G Gundam right now, and possibly Tieria Erde and Setsuna F Seiei from 00. It's gonna be a whole weekend of Gundams for us. *__*

If you want to contact me, just send a PM on the forums here. I don't check the boards often but I do get email notifications for new messages. :)

I'll be doing the red uniform for both, as a matter of convenience, so no white uniform Yzak, sadly. I'm pretty sure my friend doing Lacus will be wearing another dress than her first songstress one, so we'll have some variation there  :D

I'm really looking forward to all of us meeting up. We could probably do multiple days (outside of the official gathering) to coordinate the difference cosplays.

And I'll go ahead and update the initial post with some more info.

Yeah, that would make sense. Making just one of those ZAFT coats was enough of a hassle. I wouldn't curse anybody with making two of them..  ;D

I could participate if this gathering runs on a Friday. I'll either have a Heero Yuy from Gundam Wing or Domon Kasshu from G Gundam. I can't do the other days due to running cosplay gatherings for other series already.

Not sure how scheduling will end up, but I hope it works out for you to join us!

I second this. Friday would work best for me as well.

Friday is fine for me too, though I don't have a strong preference for what day/time

My partner and I will be going as Sayla and Bright from 0079 on Friday. Depending on the time, we'll stop by the gathering. We will be at the old school gathering for sure.

So I'm probably going to scrap my plans for 00 Gundam. :( I've been out of work for a couple weeks due to the coronavirus shutdown and it seems like a bad time to be throwing money into an expensive hobby like this.. which is a shame because I already had some elements like my Tieria wig and glasses ready to go. I have a decent closet-cosplay of his first season outfit, but I don't really want to wear it for the group pic. Maybe I'll save it for Sunday or Monday when I want to do something more casual and low-key.

Fortunately, my Athrun is pretty much done aside from some little details I want to change and I have just about everything I need to make Chibodee, so I still have options..

Ahhh I'm sorry to hear hear about your job ;_; Some of my plans are also disrupted by everything going on, since I was waiting to order new wigs and contact lens, so I may have to opt out of special lenses and use my old wigs instead.

Not sure what's going to happen this year, but I hope everyone stays safe.

Well, Fanime is cancelled, but I'm still going to work on my costumes. :'(

Maybe once it's safe to go out in groups again I'll have a costume party at work! We were starting a Monday night gunpla workshop right before we had to close down..

Meanwhile here's some of my terrible closet cosplay ;)
