Injured/battle worn? I'm intrigued.

It's just an excuse to have trousers ripped enough to show off his leg... Tab

Oooo! Sounds good. I love the idea of battle worn.

I bow before thy attention to detail.

I lvoe the watch! Not sure I've ever seen someone do that before =]

KhaosKreator posted on 6 June, 2009 - 19:20
Oh thanks! I figured I might as well do it as accurately as possible.

Littlegeeky posted on 6 June, 2009 - 19:20
Wow the watch looks amazing, I can't wait to see this finished. I bet it'll look awesome!

Love the detail on the watch. The wig looks good. And the injuries actually look real! Impressed!! *-*

That chest shocked me for a second! XD Looking very very good :D

You did an EXCELLENT job on the chest! Really well done! I can't wait to see it!

"my fucking god i jaw dropped at that chest then i was like WHAT THE HELL ISNT TAB A GIRL LMAO, lmao 6 packs suits you tab lol" I'm trans. Man, I'm starting to wonder how often I'm going to have to say that. I figured setting my profile to male would be a bit of a clue, but no one seems to be getting it. Not picking at you ryaoki it's just all I seem to be saying recently is "I'm trans. I'm trans. I am trans." So yeah, I did the chest because I was fed up with having to cover up my chest for costumes. Top surgery for me isn't for a couple of years and I didn't want to wait that long to be able to do shirtless male costumes. "ha ha ha, instant 6 pack manhood. Tab...but that's Cheating!!! Hmm looks blumin good though. Now..if you could do a prosthetic for the 'trouser dept' I would Really be impressed. :p" I totally could, it's just the same method. But in general you have to use different materials because it's a more sensitive area. Plus, explaining to my mum why I'm sculpting myself a penis in the kitchen. -Tab

"Plus, explaining to my mum why I'm sculpting myself a penis in the kitchen. -Tab" ha ha ha ha ..of course I was kidding. Although actually I believe you are one of a few who could really do it, you're such a construction genius. Hmmm sculpting a penis in the kitchen...I'm guessing it would take her perhaps 2 seconds to figure out it was some kind of krazy costume 'accessory'. :P Mums know us better than we think.

KhaosKreator posted on 15 June, 2009 - 11:46
Haha, yeah. If you ever need a pair of fake boobs though, you know who to call! -Tab

CrystalNeko posted on 15 June, 2009 - 11:48
*jaw drop* Woooah, instant six pack! What can't you do seriously? XD It looks amazing~ Your coat is amazing too, I want the coat 8O

Littlegeeky posted on 15 June, 2009 - 11:57
You made a prosthetic chest!?! That is just... *speechless* You have got to be one of the best Edward Elrics out there :D No detail is being spared in this cosplay huh :D

Ranma1-2 posted on 15 June, 2009 - 12:01
Srsly though your idea of using the hot melt vinyl stuff has inspired me. I used it before for making small moulds. But the idea of using it as material to cast body prosthetics out of didn't occurr to me. It's such a good cheap alternative to silicone rubber compounds. And less toxic too. Is there a special way of colouring it to get a flesh tone? (the stuff I used came in a mustard yellow colour)

sonia_leong posted on 15 June, 2009 - 12:40
Awesome prosthetic chest. And I have major wig envy of your lace front *¬* You are looking absolutely stunning, m'dear!!

Amy-Lou posted on 15 June, 2009 - 14:50
The prosthetic chest is incredible! I had problems looking at it, my eyes said real, my brain shouted 'you know it's fake'. Way better than a lifetime down the gym XD

Is there a special way of colouring it to get a flesh tone? (the stuff I used came in a mustard yellow colour)" The stuff I used was a pretty fleshy colour to begin with though I added some pressed powder in my skin tone (which is the palest that super drug does) then some flocking. More detail is on my livejournal post: http://khaoskomix.livejournal.com/108559.html#cutid1 The remeltable PVC compound comes from Trylon. The ordering system is weird because it has to be paid over the phone, but prices are good and shipping is fast. I ordered some monday and it came wednesday. Also, everyone else, thank you for your kind comments! -Tab

Zaiburst posted on 15 June, 2009 - 17:57
Nice pecs! :D Very impressive.

That chest is sexy xD

Ranma1-2 posted on 16 June, 2009 - 13:41
Cheers Tab. Thanks for sharing your methods and materials, it has given me a new direction to head in with my attempts at realistic boob cleavage. :) I'll let you know how I get on, and point people in your direction if they want to know where this method comes from. ;)

JakeX posted on 16 June, 2009 - 22:48
hmmmm im rather curious to know how you did the chest its rather interesting. good work and detail as usual Tab

Sephirayne posted on 21 June, 2009 - 23:43
Awesome. Love the injury make-up and the wig looks awesome. Re, trouser dept. There are pieces out there deisgned for FTM's. My bro has one. If you would like I can pm you the link.

Arm progress - Oh gosh Tab, your workshop looks like a Hollywood creature fx studio. =P

KhaosKreator posted on 9 August, 2009 - 22:39
Haha, thanks. I don't think my conservatory has ever recieved such a nice compliment. In the second picture (the one taken from the back) you can see my stack of boxes which I keep cosplay stuff in. To the left there's a stack that reaches the celling. That's the fabric stack. -Tab

Ranma1-2 posted on 10 August, 2009 - 12:42
Oh yeah.. those plastic tubs are excellent for stacking. ^^

MangaChild posted on 26 August, 2009 - 07:12

Mungojerrie posted on 7 September, 2009 - 19:54
Your Edward is incredible!

Angelphie posted on 7 September, 2009 - 20:15
Love this costume! And your performance was excellent too. I really like how you went about the automail - the mobility your arm has is great.

Demented Kid posted on 7 September, 2009 - 20:19
Some very Epic Cosplays and pictures! You did a great job on Ed~ Totally love it

RebaSephiroth2 posted on 27 October, 2009 - 22:18

You made my little brother very happy at expo when he got a photo with Ed and Al. Thank you so much on his behalf :)

KhaosKreator posted on 2 November, 2009 - 14:46
Glad you managed to get a picture! -Tab

Oh my God, you're the Ed who goes with Xae's Al! I might just melt. I've admired these pics for so long but on other internet pages.

Prosthetic chest oh Yes? Part 2

The prosthetic chest works. Some issues with blending at the sides, but all in all looking pretty good. I'm so glad I haven't had to wait to get top surgery to do this. First step to man hood complete!

14th June 2009

Prosthetic chest oh Yes!

Did the chest stuff today. All the info is on my livejournal as I CBA to enter it all in here.

13th June 2009

Coat

Coat is done! Made from scratch from a dark red wool and basic lining. Pattern made by me and design made to look huge so I look even smaller in it. The back's applique and made me swear a lot.

I now need to iron the crap out of it.

13th June 2009

Belt!

Belt is done! I made it from scratch using my half a cow. Hurt my hands a bit because it was really heavy duty but totally worth it to have my accurate hand made belt.

11th June 2009

COAT

Appliquing the fabric for the back of the coat. It's going quite well except for me swearing a lot. The fabric is just... perfect. I'm in love, and it's a wool blend.

7th June 2009

Chest cast and sculpt

Done a chest cast of myself and a sculpt on top of it. Looking good so far, can't wait to get my prosthetics in.

5th June 2009

Watch

My fabric isn't here and I can't start on the chest cast yet, so I'm doing the watch. Carving something that small is super hard, let me tell you.

I made the inside look fully accurate but managed to break the watch movement in the process. Sad Tab have non working watch now.

Oh well, I'll probably steal another one at a later date and put it in there. Working replica Ed watch? Awesome.

4th June 2009

Suitcase!

I always have problems with costumes not having pockets. So with ed I was like "HA, I can use a suitcase!" So I bought one, and it arrived today. I totally love it and wish I could take it with me everywhere. This will get good use in mine and Xae's performance at Ayacon.

3rd June 2009

Planning

Okay, so I plan things out a lot. I decided with Ed and Seigfried that I'd share the process of making it a bit more than with my other stuff. This is me planning how I'm going to construct the mould boxes for each peice that needs a prosthetic. That's chest, entire arm and leg up to thigh. Arms and hands are stupidly difficult so I need to be careful.
