|The costume is borrowed from Vinnie, while for the first time I used stock photos. Just for the main flames, however - the little buildings I put together from shots of Cambridge and some little fires from a pic from Disneyland Sea! Heheh. Rest assured, despite their not letting me continue my doctorate there, I don't wish for those beautiful old buildings to be consumed by conflagration...|
FMA is one of my oldest fandoms. I've been reading from the day the very first English scanslations appeared on Toriyamaworld, then my favourite manga providers. Must've been early 2002. I introduced my roommate to the series and we caught the feature film in a Tokyo cinema, apparently impressing locals by being able to pronounce 'Hagane no Renkinjutsushi'. The experience was made more surreal still by an earthquake. I stuck with the manga even when all the anime's fairweather fans abandoned it, and still read it to this day. Roy isn't my favourite character, but he's perhaps the one I suit most, and after all Vinnie had the costume for me to borrow! I jumped at the chance and took a few pics. I thought this one would be hardest, and was going to build up to it, but decided to start with a bang, so to speak, so here is me as Roy.
I like how this one turned out. I haven't really liked the last couple of edits I've done. This one looks nice, though. It's bold and poster-ish. It's time to grow out of the over-photoshopped look that blighted some of the Sora&Riku pics, though. Little by little!
The trouble with choosing poses as the Flame Alchemist, however, is how much fingers ready to click tend to look like rather a rude sign, in the parlance of the Bonzo Dog Band.
