another introduction post ^^;  

I'm hikari; I've been lurking for a while now. Really enjoying the excellent fic and pix people have been posting, too. Been watching FMA since episode three or so. And I love everyone. XD

I like to make things; I also do some art, but my scanner's broken right now so I'm unfortunately unable to share my fanart. But the pictures are finally in from a 'cosplay-party' that my friend held so I am able to share photos of my Ed cosplay. ^^;

I'm also currently in the process of making one of the military uniforms, since I think they look pretty cool. ^^; I'll post pix of that here, too, once it's done.

That's a very good wig you have there. Although, with your hands clasped together, I can't see what you are using as the closure on the overshirt...

ehe ^^;
I decided to go with the zipper instead of the clasp-closure because I couldn't figure out how the heck to do that. ^^;

VERY nice cosplay costume! *nod* (Do a Roy costume and I'll love you forever. XD *SHOT*) Welcome to the community and enjoy yourself here! :D

Looks pretty nice. (Maybe I should do this in a cosplay forum, but I hope you'll still find my comments useful. These are the things I've checked for when I've been a cosplay judge at cons.)

The symbol on the back looks a bit big. If memory serves, it's only about half that size. I'd also have tried to use a thicker, more contrastive black. Shape and everything looks good from the photo.

The wig should be longer and braided in the back, though I doubt anybody'd be too anal about that. I know what a pain it is to find the right wig, but that would probably be the best, easiest improvement to make. The front might use some styling, too, since i think his hair isn't quite as much in his face. (This is where I get sticky for details; your costume looks very nice and well made.)

The chain is a nice touch!

ah - thanks! I do actually really appreciate constructive criticism.

For the symbol I just used a sharpie; I could easily go over it again with either the same sharpie or a Prismacolor black. The wig actually *is* braided but it's hard to tell since I had my head turned to the side in the pic. I'm thinking when I wear it to a con I'll use something other than a thick hair tie to keep it back -- probably just some spare thread, so that it's more obvious. It's hard to braid wigs. o.O

Ooooh, you're right on par with a lot of the Japanese cosplayers I've seen. That's pretty awsome ^^. Wigs are pretty iffy too... NONE of the Ed cosplayers I've seen so far have had wigs that looked right... :(. Although I've never tried, knowing how plastic wigs are, I can see why they must be hard to braid AND keep them covering your hair.

I'm planning on doing an Ed cosplay too ^^. But not this year... it's gonna be for May 2005... I already have plans for this year, so... Ed has to wait :(.

I'm gonna be using my real hair though, no icky wigs for me (yay for being a natural blond ^_~). Speaking of which... another reason to delay this for another year is that I need to grow out my hair XD;;;.

Yaa~ You make me want to start working on my Ed coat even more. >_< *eyes the bag of cloth and her work schedule mournfully*
Your wig does look nice, it's the perfect shade. I'm going to be using my real hair when I go, even though it's really too thin. Xb

Maybe you should try going over the symbol in fabric paint... That's what I'm planning to use.
kind of a dick, if that's what elusive meansprovetheworst on January 14th, 2004 08:40 pm (UTC)

Sofiamusami on January 14th, 2004 09:46 pm (UTC)
hello fellow cosplayer! I shall make a shrine of you. okay thatd be kinda freaky so maybe not.. ^_^ But thats really a great costume.. and i personaly think the wig is great \^o^/

Thats really good! I think you need to make the symbol at the back at bit more solid,, seems sorta faded..

Kira: look LOOK!!!! I think I rape you Hikari!!! XD~~~

Kira: ... use your imagination, baka! And, BTW, I-WAS-KIDDING! >_<

So... enough nonsense, lol! ^_^
