No.
I just found these pics from the internet.

Not sure if you're asking the name of the costume player or the character he's playing.. :)
The red nosed guy is Akahana(アカハナ: red nose), the pilot of Aggai.
He was the squadron leader of Zeon special ops group that helped Char inflitrate Jaburo.

Now that is amazing. Truly gifted costume design. One of my friends is bugging me to try cosplay at a con next summer. I'd sure like to have a costume like that!

Good find, hitori.

I wonder how long it took for that guy to make that. I'm betting around several months, with all the detail and quality that the costume seems to have.

But I'm too chicken to cosplay. I guess I don't like looking like an idiot if my costume sucks. But if it were a good costume, I'd have zero shame, baby. Zero shame.

It's a little odd that with the amazing level of detail and all the obvious work that went into that costume that he left out the little torpedo dealies on the left hand. Still, this makes me feel inadequate since all I've done in terms of Gundam cosplay is a Quattro.

My old roomate was good at Cosplay. A couple of years back, he dressed up as a Gelgoog at the San Diego Comicon and Anime Expo. He looked just like the Mastergrade kit....

I'm still rather unhappy myself.

I tend to be a fan of gundam designs 'from the middle era'.

I don't like really old stuff (MSG, Zeta, ZZ) and I don't like really new stuff (Wing, Seed).

I like designs from 0080, 0083, CCA, Sentinel...

As for Acguy, just another MG I won't be buying....

Ouch !
That ACGuy is one of the ugliest mecha I've seen.
Those designs (this one and many Zeon's) really don't appeal to me.
I don't know if they become more interesting in the anime or not, the SD version is a bit funny though.

What I wish they do would be a MG SD DS (do you like abreviations ? :P )
Master Grade Super Deformed Deep Striker. I know a resin kit exists (pretty rare and expensive maybe ?), but a plastic kit full of details would be damn great.

Intolorent people who act obnoxious and self important by coloring their messages red suck and I don't like them.
Every time I see some people who are desparate to get other people's attention any way they can, it freaks me out.
Ahhhh!!

2000YearsOldMan, I haven't had any complaints so I don't see a need to edit your post. However, in the future, as site administrator, I'd appreciate being a little more understanding of other people's hobbies.

Cosplay can seem pretty silly to some people but a lot of mecha fans (including me) enjoy seeing the costumes that result from fans' hard work.
