Need Locals Help With Getting Cardboard for Gundam Making Event...
Post By Basaka. 25/04/10, 12:46 pm

Basically, we'll need some cardboard boxes for gundam making for NZAE. I can't bring cardboard down myself (imagine carrying all that on the plane, lol)

So if any of you locals have time, pop by a supermarket/store/whatever place with cardboard and ask for some boxes.

Most importantly, I need those big chip boxes that packages bluebird 18packs/SR 10packs/Eta 10packs as they are large enough to fit a torso in. Or whatever large sized boxes that you can wear over yourself.
Smaller boxes are also needed for props and accessories to go on those gundams.

Also, if you you know a cheap place to get scissors/glue/cellotape/cardboard cutters, or can provide some for use on the day, let me know. Bill hasn't found someone to organize that event, so I am trying to get everything sorted so it can run as smoothly as possible. ANY HELP WILL BE APPRECIATED! Anything you buy should be reimbursed later by Bill, but try and keep it cheap.

Ask me if you have any more questions. The event will be held outside, like a mini workshop thing. I've tried making them in year 13, so they are really fun to make, and looks outright silly, yay!

I know the Japan shop sells $3.40 duct tape. They also sell scissors and stuff, and we can carry some of those on the plane.

I think the two Dunedin branches are George St and Meridian something or other? I have a GPS now too, actually. :O

Lawl, and because it is legit and google maps powered, your points of interest would be more up to date than mine anyway. My maps are a year and a bit old now, and they are starting to show their age.

I work at New World and can therefore just store some cardboard boxes for you guys, and I don't live far from where you will all be staying.

We can lend scissors i bet from the church (we have about 20+) but i'd have to see what ones are decent first ... and ask my mom, plus i could find cellotape, i'll leave the cardboard to Lennon... he'd be able to find it easier. (Plus i have little resource of that)

Yeah, sure thing. Just that we cant offer spraypaint to everybody as it is expensive and there are responsibility issues. But markers and cellophanes seem like a viable idea... anyone know how much cellophane cost?

We have a few small extra rooms, which i may place this in.





Re construction, we can start at a certain time and leave them
to it it you think?



Please email me a breakdown of items you think we will need
SPECIFICALLY so i can purchase them



-Bill



So uhh, I guess I'll get a time sorted out for you guys. I'm thinking we can even get you guys to work it on over the day or something. Would that sound good?


Also, suggestions on items:


Cardboard (Lennon will be providing it)
Scissors

Cellotape

Craft knives


Anything else?


Also, I won't know how many of each I'll need as I have nfi how many teams/people will sign up.

Just fyi, you won't be able to use spray paint indoors - partly so you don't get paint on stuff, but mostly so you don't gas everyone due to how the ventilation system works.

I'm probably not going to allow spraypaint anyway

1. Expensive
2. Responsibility issues (well, I DO live in East Auckland/Manukau area so you know... lol)

I can help out with this, if you needs any help Bas. :O Might be easier since we're in the same household, lol.

I think some duct tape will help stop the cardboard from falling apart? How about some marker pens? To draw faces and write names, etc.
