Edward Elric Cosplay by Lady-Lumiya Edward Elric Cosplay by Lady-Lumiya
SO we had a comic con in my tiny island at the beginning/mid of September and this this is what i had been working on for a while (namely the automail) This is the first time I attempted cosplaying in any form and i am quite happy with the results for a newb! (I also made Ed's red coat that isn't shown in the photograph, it was too hot to wear it around and i only wore it during the cosplay judging)

Used Automail tutorial amethyst-angel.com/armormaking…
Character Edward Elric by Hiromu Arakawa

What did you make your auto mail from? It looks amazing!

Thank you! :hug: It's made with a layer of 3mm craft foam and on top there is 0.4mm styrene/ plastic. I then spray painted it an undercoat of black and then a top coat of chrome. Some bolts on the chest piece are actual bolts with screws XD

putting real bolts and screws is so simple yet genius!
I never thought of doing that!
This idea might get stolen >w<

AHHH HONEY YOU ARE SUCH A BABE.

Your cosplay is magnificent! ;A; How comfortable is the automail and how well does it stay on? My own is rather heavy.

OwO thank you so much! :hug:
The automail is surprisingly comfortable and very light as it is only made with craft foam and plastic sheet on top if it. I made all parts specifically to my size so they all stay on very well, only problem was the chest piece that was slipping off a bit by itself but i fixed it with a thick piece of elastic that i attached onto it.  (you can see it in the pic XD)  While  wearing the  whole thing it was also very flexible, i did have full movement of my shoulder and elbow only problem was the hand i could not make a proper fist from the finger pieces XD but overall very comfortable, i was in it for nearly 12 hours!  (had to be taken off for bathroom breaks of course :giggle: )

Well done. I love Edward. I think he's part of the reason why all of my short characters  have napleon syndrome.

haha thanks! i love Edward also! His character is really funny but not the typical "dumb joker' characters as he is quite intelligent and can be really serious too

I also love how well they did the whole kid in an adult world, that managed, but Ed was still very much a kid in so many ways.

Yeah, i think they did that very well! He is still a kid after all, no matter what he went through and how fast he has to grow up, in the end he is still a kid XD

Yup, I think they struck an amazing balance with that stuff.

Also loved Alchemey.

I loved Edwards Alchemy, he always added his unique style to everything, one i can remember off the top of my head is when he transmuted a baton like weapon and on the end it had a teasing ;P face with a pointy hair on the top like his XD

I also enjoyed the different ways they used Alchemey, from Mustangs fire, to Armstrongs crazyness.
Also some of my favorite female characters in that show. Love Winry, and Hawkeye.

man I wish had more time to watch anime.

yeah! everyone had their specialty! I really like Armstrong his solution to everything is so unnecessary and obviously not appreciated by anyone but he still doesn't miss a beat to take his shirt off xD
I really like Winry too but especially Izumi Curtis! she is damn hilarious and scary, i love how Ed and Al are so well known and renowned with their alchemy (and have great fighting skills) but die of fright each time their master is mentioned XD
