Hello my fellow watchers!
So I have decided on this day that I would announce my new cosplay costume that I am working very hard on.
To start off, I am going to cosplay as the ASW-G-08 Gundam Barbatos (4th Form) and it will be made out of cardboard and other materials. It will hopefully be completed by the and of this year! So that would make it the very first Gundam Barbatos 4th Form in the US! So yay!!!
Now here is the background story on why I want to cosplay as Barbatos...
Back in 2016, I saw a trailer on TOONAMI featuring Iron-Blooded Orphans and when I saw Orga Itsuka, I was like, "Pooh he's cute! I should definitely watch this series!" And about a week later I saw the first episode! I was HOOKED! I instantly fell in love with the beautiful Gundam Barbatos and I was in the very beginning of deciding who to cosplay as from the anime series I watched (Naruto).
When I got REALLY into the series, I loved watching the way that Mikazuki contcontrolled Barbatos and how Orga was an amazing leader of Tekkadan. There were many tragedies in the series and I grew very attached to mika, Orga, and barbatos. So, a couple of months later I decided to cosplay as Barbatos. I did a lot of research on Gundam building and I discovered Clivelee
and also UbersCosplay
all 3 who are AMAZINGLY experienced cosplayers. They were three of many who have inspired me, including all of the members of RaiseYourFlags
And also Gundam-Addict-Clan
, Gundam-Lovers GundamBuildFighters GundamDesigners
! And every one of my watchers and friends who show their support. So thank you so much! This project would have never have happened without all of you!
Then in 2018, I realized that I grew very attached to Mikazuki August. He was a fighter and a very kind and motivating person. So not only will I cosplay as Barbatos, I will also cosplay as Mikazuki August! And I will try my hardest to make the cosplays perfect!
Gundam Barbatos is about 12% done, and I will be spending as much time as I can over the summer to complete the cosplay early.
Thank you everyone who have supported me for this long. I want to make a difference in this world, just like Mikazuki August and Orga Itsuka did. And I will make it happen someday. I promise!
