    This is my latest Gundam costume make using version 10 of my making method. (I posted version 9 at http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=160555 about 3 years ago) Version 10 takes on a new approach whereby:

    1) I construct the skin(PVC wrapping) 1st before make the structure using corrugated plastic to reinforce it. Accuracy is higher and visuals are improved as a result.
    2) I redesigned the shoulder joint structure for better mobility and also for easy packing for overseas travel
    3) I broke up the costume into several small parts to ease overseas travel and assemble them before I put it on
    4) I redesign the lighting circuit so that I can easy replace or transfer battery packs to different parts of the costume
    5) I designed a stable but light structure that can hold the weight of wings
    6) I further reduced the size of the head to make the costume look more proportional


    Here are some photos of my new costume:
