Gundam Seed: Yzak Joule

Tuesday, January 29th, 2008

gundam seed cosplay - yzak joule Yzak Joule is one of the elite pilots of ZAFT in the series Gundam Seed and Gundam Seed Destiny. In Gundam Seed, he was under the command of Rau Le Creuset, leader of the prestigious ZAFT Le Creuset special operations team. He is very proud of his elite status, and considers Athrun Zala to be his primary rival.

This character may not be at the top of my favorite characters’ list, but it’s hard to deny how awesome this cosplay is. To explain why this cosplayer is covering his/her right eye, it’s because in the series, Kira Yamato gave him a scar in one of the battles they fought in. Technically, it’s on on his right eye, but above it, and across his face, but it makes sense to people who’ve seen the series.

Kelly Osbourne: Turning Japanese

Friday, January 25th, 2008

An interesting video clip of Kelly Osbourne cosplaying Lacus Clyne from Gundam Seed… Her hair clip is on the wrong side but you pretty much know she’s doing Lacus anyway.

She doesn’t really do a good Lacus Clyne, but I’ll give her a ton of credit for doing something she has no idea what it’s about…

Enjoy the clip! Don’t mind the first 2 slides… I was just testing the video uploader thing in Sanriotown.

Gundam Seed: Natarle Badriguel

Monday, December 17th, 2007

gundam seed cosplay - natarle badriguelNatarle Badeiguel, one of the few survivors of ZAFT’s Le Creuset’s raid to seize the new weapons of the colony, is one of Earth Alliance’s most loyal and promising young officers. She is the executive officer of the Archangel, a ship headed by Captain Murrue Ramius. She is a superb tactical analyst, a fine trait that made her a captain of her own ship, Dominion, after her former captain began to question the Earth Alliance’s actions.

Natarle is one of my favorite character in the series. Most people don’t really like her because of her cold nature, but I believe that’s what makes her such a fine officer in the first place. Besides, I respect characters like her better than the Damsel in Distress types. 

Sadly, she perished in Archangel’s hands because of her blind loyalty to the Earth Alliance.

Pretty accurate cosplayer though, isn’t she?

Gundam Seed: Lacus Clyne 02

gundam seed cosplay - lacus clyne 2

I have a secret and I’m not telling…

At least… That’s what the photo looks like it’s saying…

I think I like this Lacus Clyne a lot more than the previous one. Her blue eye shadow really does the trick! She really looks like a singer/idol.

Great job on this! I wonder what her name is…

Gundam Seed: ZGMF-X09A Justice Gundam

gundam seed cosplay - ZGMF-X09A Justice Gundam

Forget the perfect grade Gundam model kits! Here’s a cosplay of the mecha ZGMF-X09A Justice Gundam from Gundam Seed!

Quite speechless with this one, really. I wonder how long it took the cosplayer to finish this?

Gundam Seed: Cagalli Yula Athha

Thursday, October 4th, 2007

gunda seed cosplay - cagalli yula athhaThe adopted daughter of the Representative and “Lion” of the Orb Union’s Uzumi Nara Athha, Cagalli is a strong willed young woman nicknamed “Goddess of Victory” by the Desert Dawn resistance group in ZAFT-occupied Northern Africa. It is a disappointing note, however, that by season 2 of of the series (known as “Gundam Seed Destiny“), her strong will is crushed by the load of the responsibility of becoming Orb Union’s Representative upon her father’s death.

Although she is born a Natural (people whose DNA has never been genetically enhanced in any way), Cagalli is the twin sister of Coordinator, Kira Yamato. They did not know that they were siblings until sometime during the Bloody Valentine War.

Beautiful cosplay! I prefer Cagalli when she was still on Gundam Seed. In Destiny, she became too much of a crybaby for me. But anyway, great job, and a perfect location to match!
