Cosplay info and or help  
Okay since not everyone has seen the endof the series... I'll ask my question again under a cut ^____^



I want to Cosplay Al (from the movie) But I haven't seen much foot/boot info... I was browsing through Hot Topic and saw these boots... I thought they looked a LOT like those of Ed... But would Al's boot be the same?

http://www.hottopic.com/store/product.asp?LS=0&ITEM=309874&RN=129

They are unfortunatly on the big size for me.. =\ I can wear 7 in men boots but not 8
Anyone got any place they know where they might have that style of boots?

I'm pretty sure Al's boots are nothing fancy and don't have the same staps as Ed's do. I personally wouldn't by a new pair as any old black boots or loafers you have will do fine. When I cosplayed as him, I wore girl sandals with heels, and it didn't show at all.^^;;

Thank you. ^^ Heheh, that's pretty neat! Too bad Al's hair is parted the wrong way. XD

I'll probably go as Al again for the FMA Photoshoot, if there is one next year. ^_^ I can't wait! X3

OH MAN! Those boots are awesome! Too bad they're so expensive. And they'd need a little more modification to be just like Ed's (most notably, they'd have to open in the front). I'd feel bad modding something that expensive XD Ah well.

Yeah I feel bad too... that's why I'm trying to find a cheaper one

Cheap n Easy boots:

Walmart cheap pair o' black rainboots WITH the red bottons.
Cut almost half of the long top part off.
Fold the rest over slightly and glue/sew it.
Cut up the leftover material and fold it over the outside of the fold and glue it.
tie 3 leather/platic/velcro straps to two metal rings and glue. Glue rest in place.
Get silver/white trim. Cut and glue over the edges of the fabric part of boot.

Done. That's just how to make one boot though. Other boot is the same. That's how I made mine for TV!Ed costume.
