Cosplay Photos from AE7  

Just got back from Anime Express 7 in Daytona, FL; we did some FMA cosplay on Friday (Ed, Winry, and Lust; and I was Ed again on Saturday).

There's a lot of photos that are FMA-related, so I'm just going to post a link to my site instead of listing all the individual ones here. ^^;

Wee, pics! Evil Envy. Yay. ^^

By the way, where did you get your coat? Been looking around for a decent one(got short and long-haired blonde sister. cannot resists...).

I made it...? ^^;;
Fabric from Hancock Fabrics, no pattern.
Wish I could help more!

Oh wow, you guys did some GREAT cosplays! *O*;; I love the funny pictures XDD;;.

Thanks! We had tons of fun taking 'em, too. XD
(your icon cracks me up. *dansu*)

Am loving the cosplays. Very much. (Especially Lust/Winry. ^_~) Those are some great, great costumes. And the parking signs are perfect.

She really loved being Byakko, too. XD (watch out for the wall...) So few people actualy recognize the YnM shikigami cosplay, too (I've been Suzaku before) that it's awesome when someone does. XD (One person did, even at a teeny tiny con like Anime Express!!)

Thanks so much. They were really, really fun to make and wear. XD Lust/Winry is so weird, but then, so are all the other pairings, when you really think about it. Yay fannish weirdness. XD

Do you have any pictures of you as Suzaku? And did you see any other Yami cosplayers at Express? I love the human forms of the shikigamis. (I'm dying to dress a friend of mine up as Riko. ^_~ I'm also planning on doing Kurikara for the 2005 Yaoi-con)

And I agree, all the pairings in FMA are pretty weird. It's hard to imagine pairings at all. (Aside from being really sexy I wonder how Lust/Winry would work... Hmmm... ^^-)

Express was a really really tiny con, and there weren't many cosplayers at all, to be honest. ;-; I did find a Suzaku and a Kotarou at Megacon this year (and they actually just posted photos at the yami_no_matsuei community).

Most of risingsun.net (who takes a ton of cosplayer photos here in Florida) is down right now, but I uploaded a few of his photos of my Suzaku costume to my personal webspace.


I wasn't sure how to get the wig to do the spiky-Cloud-like thing (and the wig died when I tried to glue it) so I decided against it and just went with real hair instead. I'd dyed it red anyway, so it worked ... ^^;

Wow, that was you?! XD I remember seeing those pictures before, when I was that YnM kick, and I spazzed out because that was the first YnM Shikigami cosplay I've seen. And I love that color, very pheonix-like.

I wish Maboroshi studios would come to California to take pictures... Florida's lucky to have that photographer. Not that Eurobeat King and the Cosplay.com staff is bad (*hearts* Eurobeat King-san! *glomp glomp*) but Maboroshi pics are just... prettier... ,_,

(oh, and those links don't work, but I changed the "webspace" to "www" and it did. ^^;;)
Jenstarlightstorm on March 24th, 2004 07:21 pm (UTC)
Yeah - I *think* I'm the first Suzaku in the US ... that I know of, at any rate.

I'm pretty sure that Maboroshi's been to AX before, but I don't think they'll be able to this year. I went to ACEN and had photos taken by fansview.com, which had photos up faster, but nowhere near the quality that Maboroshi's are, and I'd rather have better quality than faster, 'coz once they're up, they're up, and they're great. ^^;

Eeee! I love your costumes! ^_^

Where did Lust get the oroboros[sp?] tattoo? Did you draw it on? I was thinking of cosplaying her too, but I don't know what I'm going to do for the tattoo. :/
Jen: determinedstarlightstorm on March 22nd, 2004 04:23 am (UTC)
Yeah, we drew it on. We used a purple eyeliner and outlined it in black (otherwise it would've been too pale). If you're gonna do that though remember to keep it sharp -- ours kind of crapped out on us and we didn't get as much detail in it as I would've liked. And, we put hairspray on it after drawing it on, so it wouldn't budge. (A little trick I learned from a .hack cosplayer ^^;;)

If you have a nice printer, I've also seen special paper (at Walmart, of all places) that you can get that makes temporary tattoos, and you could print one out. I don't know how readily available that stuff is, though. ^^;

Nice cosplay...I look forward to making mine ^_^
Jen: goodstarlightstorm on March 22nd, 2004 04:35 am (UTC)
What'll you be doing and where'll you be wearing it?
アリシアunforgiventak on March 22nd, 2004 08:05 am (UTC)
Edward Elric... I'm short and I have longish blond hair XD

hey! My boyfriend saw you guys down there XD

he was in Daytona without me ;_; now he's asleep after the eight hour car drive back

Jen: alchemystarlightstorm on March 22nd, 2004 04:29 am (UTC)
... cool! Was he cosplaying anyone?
(There weren't enough cosplayers, imho. ;-;)

We're planning on reprising the costumes at Metrocon in Tampa this July (except we're going to have a different Winry and this one's going to be turned into Envy, I think) and we may have some other characters join us (including, god willing, Al).

eee! pictures! very lovely. Lust dominating everyone. Hohohohoho. XDD
Reminds me that I need to get a wig sometime...I think I'd look funky though. Great jobs!
Jen: determinedstarlightstorm on March 22nd, 2004 04:31 am (UTC)
Lust dominates because it's what she does best. XD (And I so just typed 'bed' instead of 'best', geez)
... As for wigs, I thought I'd make a terrible blonde but I really can't get enough of the new wig I got for Ed. They can be kind of weird at first but you do, imho, get used to them. ^^;

Under the list of characters, you forgot to include Wizu as himself.
