Mobile Frame Zero: Cosplay 00X

Postby Shades_Corvid » Sun Mar 23, 2014 7:11 pm

So I was just wondering if anyone has thought about cosplaying a Mobile Frame, one of the chars from the rule book or as their own Original MFZ Character?

I am thinking about cosplaying a frame pilot, an outfit to wear at cons at plan to demo at.

No... Now that you mention it though, I so totally am! You go right ahead and be a Frame pilot and I will put many cardboard boxes through much torture as I try to Frame myself. lol :) I really wanna see a Chub costume so bad!! Actually, I want one for keeps, cause seeing is not mine enough. OOoooooo that reminds me of this idea I had about making a Chub that stood 3 - 4 feet for cons but then I remembered how I don't think MFZ has many fans round here and how it would take so many bricks! Bricks we wouldn't have in large volume on account of the size we build at. I digress, you pilot and me Chub. Con at future place and date, no guarantee we don't get Gundam new-stereotyped!

As much as I love to have it, it just out of the budget!

Well Shades, I was getting out some summer fun toys and such and stumbled into a very cool item I can barely remember buying let alone why. It's a china made "fighter pilot" helmet in black and so I decided to pull it out and ask for some ideas on some new paint.

Anyway the FAST on the right is a custom paint job I did last year for my tan airsoft load out and not at all what a frame pilot would want. So like, racing stripes? Gloss finish? Flashy or subdued? I can imagine that all of those things would do but I like to hear other peoples thoughts as I am drawing a blank right now.

Errrr I know I was all like, "frame costume!" but now it could be easier to be a pilot :)

Well, what faction?

I picked up a long-sleeve jersey for riding my bike when it's on the cool side that's mostly orange with split dark grey/orange sleeves and some other little bits of grey on it.

It looks unfortunately similar to this when I wear it:

I am stalled on this, I love the FC for the "sky's the limit" background and colour schemes. Really though, I'm thinking that the whole thing will be a great advertisement for the game and so I thought about something dark and red and all nice'n shiny. Then I realised how perfect the TTA is for anime and the idea of a young pilot just graduated and is stoked to do the "make-work" he is shoveled, smiling all the day. And the Ijad colours are white... I spill coffee so many times a day I cannot do white.

So for some reason I really want the TTA faction, what colours do they utilize? I know it's around here somewhere, is it blue?

Anyway more to the point. The fake chrome is, well fake and may flake off with wear. I am considering buffing it off when I prep the helmet to prime. If we can settle on keeping or losing the chrome that would be step 1, and so will it compliment the colour scheme or does it even matter to your "vision"?
The visor does not seal on the bottom, or uh the chin has no guard or whatever, it straps up like a hockey helmet. I was thinking that would be fine as most frames would need systems for space. TTA on the other hand? Would it break continuity for this helmet to be TTA? I was thinking I would tint the visor (MittenNinja's dye thread should help) or decal it with "Holo-Status readings" and perhaps a gas-mask of sorts reworked as an air supply (repro's are pricey).

Hmmm, that should help me get started so a big thanks in advance. I hope we get this cosplay thing going! I have never before but airsoft has me G.I.Joe'ing so this should work out, plus I know a theater costume maker/lady who is aces ;)

Can we sort of get a run down of each just for future cosplay reference?

Though I am sure all TTM or MFL are standardized I am sure there are more options with Free Colonies or even the Ijad (presuming human ally pilot). More organized and I will say wealthy Free Colonies might be more pro looking, standardized while more struggling Free Colonies might be...a guy wearing coveralls, goggles and wishing on a muscle cylinder. I am not quite sure about Ijad though...
