Costume Photos

Ayacon 2009


Costume Information

Cost : £100+
Time Taken : Overall a year (on and mainly off)

EDIT: I've done this cosplay for Amecon 008 and Kitacon 2009 now, yet I still am able to imrpove on it. Next to do it automail arm.2, wig styling, waistcaot (again) and a coat.

I love Edward so much so of course I want to cosplay him. I think I'd be able to pull older Edward off better because I'm too tall for Red coated Ed lol (DON'T CALL ME SHRIMP!!!) I didn't say shrimp Ed, god!

(NEW cosplay=£79.60)
(OLD rubbish cosplay= £46.47)

nice work on the automail.

never seen the anime, but always meant to.

at some point i'm gonna try and articulate Hellboy's hand, so i'll be picking your brains on that, if you'd be so kind...

We look EPIC!!! :D Thankyou so much for the awesome time at the ball, it was the first real time I'd met other FMA cosplayers. Hopefully we'll bump into each other at a con. I'm so going to Ayacon as Edward for the ball again, this time though I'll make him look even better XD
