ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
A young cosplayer at the Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention 2010 sported this astonishing stilt-walking cardboard Gundam suit; alas, it wasn't the easiest thing to walk in.
Awesome Cardboard Gundam Cosplayer has Epic Fall at STGCC 2010
Anything one does in such a suit is epic. It was an epic fall after an epic walk about.
I was like “Ow, right on the knees,” then I realized he just landed on his own feet, which were at the costume’s knees. Nice recovery!
The tiny head and waggy-crotch are a bit odd
Agreed. I assume they wanted to keep the head in the right proportions or something, but they should have just made it a little too big and have it sit on his head right.
Also, bolt that cod-piece down, there are children present!
Yea, the head look similar to an Eva, moreso than a Gundam.
That’s it. The gauntlet has been thrown down. I’m gonna have to pull a Roujin-Z next year.
What an incredible costume!
But doesn’t it look like it’s just stumbling in late to a giant robots’ AA meeting?
