Okay. I know that there have been a bunch of Edo cosplayers with the automail arm. So I'm wondering, how did you make yours? I want to make one. But I don't have the slightest idea as to how to start. Money's tight, so I was wondering if anyone had made a cheap one and could give me an idea as to how to make one?

MUCH thanks ahead of time.

check my memories of my personal journal. I have automail making stuff there.

I've just started on mine. And so far I've spent around $30 (on the craft foam, glue, elastic, and snaps). I've still gotta paint it and add buttons, so I'm guessing that'll cost another $20 at most (I hope).

Good luck! ^___^

Teresa-san is the Amethyst-Angel one, and she made my arm! XD

Its kinda hard to move in, but I'll get some pics up of me in it. Im still trying to get it to stick down to my shoulders more. Its hard for a good fit when you have boobage....

seeing as its design is more for a man... with no boobage... ;_;

But the arm is really neato :3
