Wind up Geek’s Cool Japan: Gundam Snowboarding

22 Feb

By James Robert Shaw (The Wind up Geek)

TeamGPLogo1The island of Japan was hit with heavy snowfall this year and that would normally have downsides. But if you’re either a member of Team GP (Gundam Performance) or a fan of their group, heavy snowfall isn’t all bad. Team GP is a group of Gundam cosplayers who take their cosplaying to new heights. And when I mean heights, I mean carried away from the convention floor and dropped somewhere above sea level on the snow-covered slopes.

Their specialty is snowboarding and one can say they’re a little more adept at it than some people. Team GP not only has a following they have their own stickers, armbands and revolving character key chains too.
