Fanart - Vagabond Disguises  
More fanart for Vagabonds!

Disguises are essential when you're on the run and don't want to be found! And especially so when you're as well known as Edward and Alphonse Elric! That, and fitting in is a pretty good idea when you're travelling around in a foreign country.

Rated G, and no spoilers!

Ed and Al in Xing! Both of them have dyed their hair black, and wear sunglasses to hide their foreign eyes.

Ed and Al living in the icy mountains of Drachma. Their hair is still black, though they no longer wear sunglasses.

Ed and Al make their way through Ishbal, where reconstruction of the wartorn land is still underway. Their hair is supposed to be bleached white, but pencil makes that rather hard to tell.

I plan on doing more disguises for these two wandering vagabonds, but as for what exactly, I'm not sure. Do any of you guys have any ideas?

Each drawing took around 1.5-2 hours.

Hmmm... why not have them dress up badly as women and hide in a Brothel XD?

Lol, I wholeheartedly agree with this idea.

Dressing Ed up as a lady is already on my list, though not them in a Brothel! Haha, I shall have to think on that!

But it must be done badly! That is the key word XD

Pretty much what I was going to suggest. XD

Um, disguise them as gentlemen, as in suits and nice gentlemanly poses?

Oooo, or how about drawing them as prisoners of war?
Feriowindferiowind on May 21st, 2008 03:34 am (UTC)
:) Haha, thanks!

Well, they're supposed to be on the run, and the only thing supporting them is their bare abilities and anything they can fit in their bags, so getting fancy suits will be rather hard.... Unless they steal them... Hmmm.... Okay, now it seems plausible. *has Roaring Twenties in mind*

Ah, going as prisoners of war would be a bad idea on their part since they're trying not to get captured and be turned in to the Amestrian gov't for lots o' money.

I envy the EPIC BRAID myself. My braid is all stubby and 15-year-old Ed-like (but not blond).

Your stuff is always so brilliant!

I suggest street musicians/traveling minstrels?
Toby: Eggt3h_toby_chan on May 21st, 2008 04:52 am (UTC)
Oh, also, with the drachma picture, what is the creature Al has?

Feriowindferiowind on May 21st, 2008 06:14 am (UTC)
Oh, it's not one creature! He has two hares and several fishes. XD Though now that you mention it like that, I'm seeing it now too....

omg, I love your icon
Feriowindferiowind on May 21st, 2008 06:16 am (UTC)
:D I like that idea! Though what they'd play will require some more thought. Maybe just street performers of some other sort instead....
Toby: squeet3h_toby_chan on May 21st, 2008 05:40 pm (UTC)
Tambourines! 8D They gotta fail pretty bad if they can't play tambourines.

Some other percussion, maybe. Though I've always fancied the idea of Ed playing the violin. (Had a few scenarios imagined in which he takes it up, mostly post-movieverse where they spend time with the gypsies and carnies and Ed is determined to learn some non-scientific talent just to say he can.) Violin would be too expensive and time consuming for vagabonds, tho.

Dance? There was that one mangaverse illustration where the golden trio were out at some restaraunt and there was a group of musical performers playing for them, wearing kind of meditteranean style clothing. I'd assume they were from Creta or Aerugo. Something like that? Dance, boys, dance!
Feriowindferiowind on May 21st, 2008 11:10 pm (UTC)
I've started on a drawing of Ed playing the trumpet and Al playing the violin. I dunno why, but I find trumpet playing Ed to be very cute....

Meditteranean style clothing? Hmm, I might use that for another set of disguises. I'll just make up whether it come from Creta or Aerugo, though just the name Creta makes it sounds more likely.

Hawaii. No, really. Give them a break, let them catch some sun!

Cool pictures are cool :)
Feriowindferiowind on May 21st, 2008 11:06 pm (UTC)
I think Ed might go super paranoid if he had wear clothes that revealed his automail, which is actually covered by the latex skin, but is still pretty fake close up.... Perhaps Al can persuade Ed to take it easy for a while.

:) Thank you~

The 1000 faces of Edward and Alponse Elic! I wanna see them in BEARDS. XDDDD
Feriowindferiowind on May 21st, 2008 11:07 pm (UTC)
Haha, now you've given me an image of Ed wearing those fake glasses with the nose and mustache attached to it!
live4him4evalive4him4eva on May 21st, 2008 11:54 pm (UTC)
Haha The Groucho mask! XD -must see a doodle of that-

P.S. Very awesome, I lol'd at his braid.
Geez, your stuff has been so great lately I can't find anything to concrit... O_O
Feriowindferiowind on May 22nd, 2008 12:08 am (UTC)
Haha, I've already got the image in my head....

:D Aww, thanks~

I love these so much.

:3 Heehee, thank you~

I tend to picture Aerugo as a quasi-Africa place, with lots of interesting and exotic cultural and fashion traditions. I've only seen pictures of African traditional dress, but a lot of it strikes me as wonderfully interesting.

There's also Creta, which we know next to nothing about--and is therefore wide open to fan speculation. I have my own evil ideas regarding it, but I'm sure you could adapt some cultural dress into something interesting.

Of course, in almost every culture, women get to have more fun with their clothes. I've always liked the look of traditional Indian saris. I'm not sure I could ever figure out how to wear one, but I think they're extremely elegant and full of colorful life when worn by someone who knows how to drape one.

Re: Aerugo!
Hmm, I like that idea! I'll see how I can disguise Ed and Al in that sort of environment....

I'm gonna go with the idea that Creta is a mediterranean sort of place, though finding how fashion was back then is becoming really annoying.... You wouldn't happen to know any good places for reference, would you?

That's so true! Maybe I'll dress Ed up as a lady again so I can give him all the cool clothes! XD
