Hey, I know it's still 2011, but there's no harm in planning ahead of time.
Right, well it's a little too early to make arrangements on which day and time to meet. However, it's never too early to have an interest in what character you want to cosplay!
Before we get to the list, I strongly
urge you to choose a UC Gundam character. My best friend and I specifically are looking for a Gihren Zabi
cosplayer. You are awesome and win the internets if you decide to cosplay him. The plan is to get Zeon and Earth Federation cosplayers; this includes any version of Zeon and the Earth Federation in the UC Timeline (Zeon, Neo Zeon, The Sleeves, Earth Federation, AEUG, Titans, etc.). This also includes mobile suits! The reason why I encourage this is so we can all take an epic battle picture between the clashing sides.
There are many characters to choose from. Some of fandom favorites include Mineva Zabi (Audrey Burne), Marida Cruz, Peru, Dozle Zabi, Ramba Ral, Paptimus Scirocco, Haman Karn, Kycilia Zabi, Bright Noa, Ryu Jose, Mirai Yashima, Amuro Ray, Fraw Bow, Hyato Kobayashi, Yazan Gable, Kamille Bidan, Four Murasame, Bernard Wiseman, Christina McKenzie, M'Quve, etc.
However, I don't want to limit the choices to just the UC. So if you really want to cosplay a Gundam character from another series that you have planned right now, that's fine as well. If we get AU Gundam characters and UC Gundam characters, we can do a general photo shot as well. If you don't have anything planned but want to cosplay a Gundam character, I do suggest a UC one so we can take that shot. Especially since we have practically a year to plan ahead of time.
If you have any questions about a UC character you are interested in cosplaying such as reference shots, how the character acts, any special memes that include the character, feel free to contact me by PM.

(Note: If you want to cosplay Char, Garma, Sayla, or Kai as well, this is fine! There are even four versions of Char, two of Garma, two of Sayla, and two of Kai.)Meeting place:
Please meet at the bottom of the escalators
during the meeting times if you want to join the Gundam group! On Friday at 8 PM, my friend and I will be in our Sayla Mass and Kai Shiden cosplays. And on Saturday at 1 PM, she and I will be cosplaying Char Aznable and Garma Zabi. You can spot Sayla and Kai by the short blonde hair and pink uniform Sayla wears and the grey hair and blue uniform Kai wears. Char and Garma have uniforms of full red and green respectively, and Char wears a cape.
I hope to see you guys there. Have fun at the con regardless!
