Olivier Armstrong (retired) (2012 Version) - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood




This is the first costume that I have spent this amount of time and effort on, and I'm so pleased with the outcome. Considering the fact I'm self taught and I have very few resources, I think it's an okay costume <3

I will be going to the London MCM Expo in May as her, with a Winry and a Lust cosplayer.

Just a few more bits to do~

Oh my God, OLIVIIIIAAA~ XD haha, this is epic. She has to be one of the all time greatest female characters, yet she's so under-cosplayed! Excellent choice. ^_^b

Completed for now

I have a few more things to add, but the costume is at a completed stage. I do have a white strap for her scabbard, but it's currently being repaired.

All that is left to do is make the ribbons for her proper medals, make her Briggs coat and her sword. A lot to do, but still not as much as before ^_^

I've truly enjoyed this project so far, and once I'm 100% finished I'll finish Black*Star, and start on either Envy or Lan Fan :D

Wig and Jacket

The wig arrived last week from WigisFashion. I'm so impressed with it, and since it's my first wig, it really does set the standard for me. The style is more or less done, I'm debating whether or not to curl the very tips like all the Armstrong's have, since I will probably mess it up, and it already looks like her in my opinion.

I've put my arse into gear this weekend and started the jacket. There is still a while to go before I finish it 100%, but hopefully I can get a huge chunk of it done. Just need to keep workin' at it~

Once the jacket is done, that is the main part of the cosplay complete, and then I can take my time with her coat and sword.

Finished lower body uniform

It took far longer than I expected, but I managed to complete the lower part of the uniform. Now to tackle the jacket, and order the wig~
