Gundam Wing

Shin Kidousenki Gundam W (Gundam Wing to U.S. audiences) is a 1995 giant robot space opera with a handful of really snappy military uniforms and a whole bunch of other… less-snappy costume designs. But Lucrezia Noin is one of Alena’s favorite characters, so she arm-twisted suggested making a set of OZ military uniforms. (And then went on to make some of the silly costumes as well.)

Laura as Zechs Merquise; Mark as Treize Khushrenada; Alena as Lucrezia Noin (OZ uniform), Lucrezia Noin (Western), and Duo Maxwell (Endless Waltz version).

    How did you make Zechs’ jacket? I’ve been looking up patterns and can’t find quite what I need. I’d like to make it mayself so I can use sturdier and more fire-safe materials than polyester.

      We patterned the jackets ourselves. I’d suggest starting with a simple tailored jacket pattern, making a mockup that fits you, and then pinning or taping additional pieces on and adjusting until you have the shape you want.
