Ed and Winry Live XD  
The local national kids' channel did a short interview about cosplay with the Anime & Manga Association of Israel (AMAI), and as part of the interview featured a scene out of the FMA musical that was performed in a convention this past March. 
The song translated was "Returnable Memories", which was part of a scene with Winry scolding Edward while fixing his broken automail after a fight with Scar.
The sound is sort of weak, but if you turn up the volume you can hear it :) (and yay for FMA cosplay on national TV!)

FMA segment starts at 2:30

 The interviewers really didn't know what to make of the whole cosplaying business =/  It was sort of sad.  They liked the automail, though.
Current Mood: chipperchipper

Wow, thanks for posting that. That was very enjoyable! I don't know why it tickled me so much to see cosplay on Israeli tv--it's rarely seen on American tv either. (I've never seen it, but I'm assuming it's been featured somewhere, also probably on a local station I'm sure.) The FMA musical actually looks pretty good! Also, the Winry cosplayer is very realistic, I don't know why exactly but she is a very convincing Winry.

Actually, the really funny part is that FMA never aired in Israel on any station, ever, not even a sub XD
It's considered too violent for the kids' channel (our actors were warned to say NOTHING about parents dying and Gates taking limbs in the interview). Because Israel is small, and the fanbase is small and pretty new, it's getting a fair amount of media interest, which I guess is sort of impossible on major networks in America.
Glad you enjoyed :)
you can actually find the entire musical on youtube, but it's abysmal quality, which only exacerbated the technical problems it already suffered from...

Your icon use confirms my assumption that the poofy gown was indeed a rather blue version of gothloli!Drag!D'eon. =D

Israeli FMA fans did an entire musical? WIN! Man, it makes me want to brush up on my abysmal Hebrew.
