Costume Information

General
Cost : Overall probably around £80. So far.
Time Taken : lol YEARS of chipping away, adding bits, modifying...XD

Description
This was originally my first ever cosplay (Amecon 2004), but it was so naff and I made so many alterations to it that I decided to class it as 'first worn at Minami 11'. XD
The red jacket is made from scratch and the black and white inner jacket was once part of a two-piece suit. I changed it beyond all recognition. X3 I made the belt myself from pleather (it's sych a b*tch to wear though) and the trousers are leather tucked into some heavilly modified hiking boots (2 sizes too big for me lol)
My automail is actually a painted glove as I've never had the opportunity to make full-on armour, but I think it's pretty effective. *hopes* ^_^;

EDIT; 6/1/2010

Man, over 5 years after I debuted this costume, I'm bringing it back for Kitacon. Basically, it's the same costume BUT with a NEW WIG!! YAAY at last. =__= I've loathed the old wig for ages but never reallyhad the opportunity to do anything about it. That has now changed~

Also, now that I've developed a pickyness for photography, I should be able to get some semi-decent shots up here, and hopefully soon, too!

New Wig (Posted 7th July 2011)

I've never been happy with any of my Wigs for Ed....I'm now on my FOURTH. But I'm liking how this one looks so far. ^___^
Anyway, I actually bought this for a different character but the colour wasn't suited for it.....damn near perfect for Ed, though, so thought I'd give it a bash~
