Sword Impulse Gundam Costume Made Out of Paper

E-mail Print

Lee Gunawan made his Sword Impulse Gundam costume using a pattern from paper-replika.com. He enlarge and modify the existing patterns so that he can use it as a costume. Lee built this costume includes enlarging the pattern in his spare time for about 7 months. He added layers of eva foam from 4 to 20 mm thickness inside the costume to reinforce the suit. He also added layer of waterproof coating inside the suit and anti damp clear coating on the outside to prevent water or his sweat ruining the suit. Lee needs 2 of his friends to help him wear the costume. It is quite heavy, about 8 kilograms and it also makes his mobility very limited, just small steps when walking.

The reason why he choose the Sword Impulse Gundam because the template is quite simple but with enough interesting detail. Lee spent no more than $200 USD to build this suit. He is planning to wear his gundam costume to an Anime Festival that will be held in Surabaya 7-8 June 2014. Now Lee is finishing his study in Interior Architecture major.
