FMA group at Expo


Costume Information

Cost : Approx £50
Time Taken : A couple of weeks

This is the first time I've made a costume completely from scratch like this... so I'm really pleased at how it turned out! Started with a pattern for a Dickensian jacket and modified it to make it look like the FMA uniform.

I decided to go for a darker blue than usually used, and grey trim rather than silver, just to give it a more 'real military uniform' kinda feel. I dunno, I liked how it turned out.

Next time I think I need to sort out that damn collar and get some proper military boots.
