Cosplayer A.r. > Costume of Ginias Sahalin from Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Most of this is gabardine, with vinyl and trim for detailing. The insignia gave me quite a bit of grief (I had to figure out how to sew metallic thread the hard way!), and the lining I just kind of farted in since by then I just wanted to finish the damn thing and no one's gonna see that shittiness anyway. It's also really tight, but at least that means it's nice and fitted like it should be. Pants and boots are store bought leftovers from the high school nightmare, though the latter I need to replace since after seven years they're falling apart.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Can we say dream costume? Yes, yes we can. I'm been wanting to do a better version of this for years and I've finally done it ;A; Okay, so it's far from perfect, but at least it's better than that hot mess I pooped out in high school. Mai waifu deserves so much better than unhemmed broadcloth sloppily glued to a premade coat several sizes too big... ANYWAY yeah, I have sense now and this is the result. Sieg frickin' Zeon.
- Styling Notes
- For the longest time I just trimmed this and swooped it in the right direction and called it good. Then I thought hey, sticking some curl in here would probably make it look more like Ghinius's hair and less like David Bowie (as awesome as being mistaken for him is). I actually used soda cans as curlers since that's what was around and nice and thick. If Lady Gaga wasn't already Ghinius's spirit animal...
