Mobile Suit Gundam gets in touch with its feminine side

by Chris MaGee

Many of you have probably been following our coverage of the construction of a scale model of a RX-78-2 Gundam robotic suit on Odaiba Island to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Mitsuteru Yokoyama's anime series "Mobile Suit Gundam". Now the question is what if instead of all polished metal and butch the Gundam suit looked something like what you see above? A Taiwanese fan has decked out a model of the Gundam suit with rhinestones, frills and made over the colour to make it pink, glorious pink! If someone could turn this model into a wearable costume I could totally see it in this weekend's Pride parade... well, for about 5-minutes until whoever was wearing it passed out from the heat. Honey, you gotta pay the price for beauty!

Thanks to Pink Tentacle for this fun little item.
