I once took a picture of myself and drew an Earth Federation uniform onto myself using a paint application and never shown it to anyone. Does that count?

(No. I don't have the picture anymore. I would do it again if I could draw a Feddie uniform better, though).

I've never cosplayed, though I can't honestly say I'm closed to the idea. I actually had a Garma uniform going but it was never finished and never will be.

Thing is, I can't stand the idea of cosplaying unless the costume is superbly done. If it's even a mote below par then I can't imagine bringing myself to actually wear it under any circumstance.

I'm hoping to have a full Zeon uniform ready for April. Possibly Ramba Ral, though more likely just the generic colors - I haven't decided for sure yet.

I have one pic of myself about to slap a random seeder.

Me on the left

I started with a coat that was on sale and made modifications myself. I didn’t have to worry about shoddy seams ripping on me or what have you and it was still a fully functional jaket.

Best thing is, I was able to easily undo the modifications to the coat and now I where it all the time. As seen here

Heretic, that might be the single greatest cosplay pic I've seen, just for the sheer feeling of imminent redemption. Well done.

I cosplayed Garma when I was 19 and under 100 lbs.

Now I would LOVE a Zeon uniform made the way I think such a uniform would really be: dark green gabardine with velvet cape and panels and gold piping to make the stylized eagles.

I've got a paper mache Gundam Alex helmet and a partially completed beam rifle in my room, but I haven't built the rest of the costume (nor do I really plan to).
Don't call it a comeback...
...in fact, it's best if you forget I was ever here before.

I don't really enjoy cosplay. They(cosplayers) kinda give me goosebumps as an anime character may not even look good in real life.

I would really like to cosplay. I would probably go as Ramba Ral, since I have the fat body for it. I could also go as Norris Packard. (Goufs for teh win!) I've got one tall skinny friend and a really tall fat fiend, so we sould go as the Black Tristars. As soon as I get myself situated with money and, uh...er, cotsume-making skills, I can do so. Plus, I have a friend on deviantart who makes great cosplay costumes, and she looks so good in them :D .

I was going to cosplay as Basque Om at AX this year, but the only suitable black bridge coat I could find was somewhere in the $130s, and I decided I have better things to spend my money on. Like college.

Besides, no Basque Om cosplay is complete without a street of Titans to beat people down.

What? You can't find any Zeons or AEUGs to beat up either? Bask Om is a big guy, I'm sure he doesn't need little minions to do his dirty work. :D

Oh, sure, Basque could perform the beatdown by himself, but it's not the same unless he has four or five minions do it for him.

I was gonna do Aizen Sousuke from Bleach for Oni-Con last September, but I never got the costume done.
I'm still gonna do it, though, because I can do Aizen perfectly - right down to the color of the eyes.
(I have naturally brown hair and eyes, and Aizen in the Bleach Anime has brown hair and brown eyes. Plus I can do the hairstyle easily)

After that, I dunno. Might try for Jamille Neate from Gundam X, if I can find the coat.

If I had any skill with a needle and thread I would cosplay, but something simple, like a Federation uniform or maybe Kaneda's outfit.
