|There are a lot of characters that I really love from Fullmetal Alchemist and Ling is probably my most favourite. I like that he has a very silly and funny personality while also having cool, agile fighting skills, and after certain events he becomes something of a bad-ass instead. I usually like both of these character-types, so he gets extra points for having both qualities ^_^V I also really love the design of his jacket and wanted one for myself.|
Ling’s been on my cosplay list for a long time, and since Brotherhood came out I thought that I’d better hurry up and cosplay as him while he’s still a very rare choice of character to cosplay as (I’ve never seen a Ling cosplay before which is another reason that I’ve always wanted to cosplay as him). I debuted this costume at the Midlands Expo in February 2010 and it was quite well-received. I had quite a number of people come up to me throughout the day who were really happy to see a Ling so I enjoyed doing this cosplay ^_^
I’ll be wearing him again for KitaCon 2010 and if there’s an FMA meet-up arranged then I might wear him for a couple of hours at AmeCon 2010 as well.
