Automail for sale?! e_e;  
I didn't see anyone post about this, so I thought I'd link the Automail that's for sale on eBay. I've seen some Japanese cosplayers wearing that model... as well as this other automail arm that also looks manufactured (the other one looks BETTER, but I haven't seen it for sale +_+).

And, uh, just so this post isn't all about one link...
1) Japanese site with really good FMA cosplay (teh Royyyy *O*;;).

U_U;; It's a quick sketch done purely because I haven't seen enough Wrath fanart, so excuse the rotten perspectives and proportions (I made his feets so smallll xOx;!!).

Yeah I saw the auto mail on Ebay too...it's actually kinda crappy looking...not to mention it looks REALLY hard to move in...

I still say home made automails are better..more personl too ^^

Animaxis sold that ont for 126.49$. Sold out for now though.

I think I know what other one you mean, saw one on yahoo!Japan that looked better than this one but just couldn't have been home made. *sighs* Why don't they ship international? I so wanted it.
Ananomoreprinces on August 28th, 2004 02:04 am (UTC)
Uh... they do ship international. I buy stuff from there all the time and I'm in California. The shipping is obscene though, but stuff gets here within a couple days of them shipping it.
Kalika Maxwellkalikamaxwell on August 28th, 2004 02:05 am (UTC)
The auction said no international ship. It was like, the only part written in English. >.>

Oh I thought you meant animaxis not the ebay auction.
Ananomoreprinces on August 28th, 2004 02:09 am (UTC)
You can always go through a proxy bidder for Y!Japan. I've gone through Rinkya. They seriously GOUGE on comission prices though. There's also Celga but I believe you have to prepay the auction and leave actual money with them before you bid.

uchiha_sucksuke on August 27th, 2004 10:46 pm (UTC)
Oh my god, there was this INCREDIBLE Izumi cosplay at Otakon this year... but I CAN'T FIND ANY PICTURES RIGHT NOW >O<;;;. [falls into a pit]
Either love me or leave me alonesyphonboa on August 27th, 2004 10:09 pm (UTC)
i actually have pics of a "making of" a VERY accurate automail thats almost like that.... its foam with a silver gilding and steal snaps. it pretty much the same as that thing on ebay, except the hand is MUCH better.
Hakurahakura on August 27th, 2004 10:23 pm (UTC)
oh? do share please ^^ I'm looking for good pics/step bt step XD

I second that! I've been thinking about doing automail ever since I decided to cosplay Ed .___. but am completely dense about how to even consider begining.
darkazriel on August 28th, 2004 12:07 am (UTC)
Show me! I've been trying to think up a way to make it for weeks! (Ah well. I have time. It's a good half-year until the next con near me... Good old Otafest. Small area, huge amounts of people everywhere. XP)

Jeez. I think your Wrath is phenominal.
∫ 悟り♥ d♥absentaserpis on August 27th, 2004 10:59 pm (UTC)
I think your wrath is just great o-O the perspective actually amazes me. It's like he's looking into a camera or something to that affect with his face being closer and the focus while the farthest parts appearing much smaller. It really amazes me.

As for the cosplay site... I feel like the only one that'll notice the fabric on Ed's jacket and the military uniforms... but seriously, is it me or are they made of something like velvet? *-* Cause it would be so neat if they were... expensive! but really cool.
uchiha_sucksuke on August 28th, 2004 11:07 am (UTC)
Haha, yeah, I noticed the velvet too x__X;;... reeeeally fancy for military men ^^;. I can't help but think how HOT it would be, especially the ones where they're outside in June... it's deathly humid in those parts during the summer >O<;;.

... and I must be the only loser who worries about humidity like this ^^;;.

Thank you for the nice comments on me art, too! @w@;

Ooh, that is pretty good cosplay. Heh, I'm still convinced that if I made the military uniform correctly (too stubborn to get it commissioned cause I like to do things myself and want to personalize it a bit, although I have absolutely no idea where to begin @_@ ) and colored my hair black, I would be the sexiest (female) Roy cosplayer. >:3

And your art looks good~
uchiha_sucksuke on August 28th, 2004 11:13 am (UTC)
Dooooooo iiiiit!! *O*!! [super peerpressure power!].... 9o9;;;
Eheh, excuse my mad obsession for cosplay +__+;.
But yeah, that military outfit IS a frightening thing o__o;. You could just be like... date-version Roy and wear a suit or something XD;;. Still super hot @www@;;.

Re: @W@!!!
Yeah that uniform is evil, but since I am good at imagining how things work in my mind, I've been making Roy strip for me imagining it being taken off, being completely taken apart, being pieced back together, and being put back on. Every time I do this, I notice something new ("oh, some buttons are probably there" "the material folds like that" etc) so I'll have the knowledge by the time I start. I just don't know about my skills ^^; I've never put something together from scratch.

I am sooo going to do Roy cosplay. The only thing that will stop me is if I suddenly am unable to go to the cons that I've planned. ;_; Also, I do have two other Roy versions in mind that I'm going to do besides military...yes, I'm going to have a lot of fun with him XD

I didn't know you were on LJ. (Don't know if you remember me at all, I commented on your FMA picture on DA some time ago ^^)

Well, the site's photo page isn't working on my end. I'm just getting HTML. (But, copying and pasting the htm page name and putting it after the /kyra/ shows it =D)

Well, the only person I can cosplay with ease would be Izumi but that's because I wouldn't need a wig and I could braid my hair like that. I could, however, be the black-west-indian version of Hawkeye [with glasses] and prop on a wig (black since blond would look awful) and make myself a military uniform over the course of this year. XD;
*plots some more*

nice Wrath sketch =O
uchiha_sucksuke on August 28th, 2004 03:41 pm (UTC)
Ahhh hey fellow deviant!! (...someone kick me for using that greeting x___x)

Oooo... more people need to cosplay Izumi TwwwT;; [makes googly eyes at you] ...But yeah, the military duds would just be SO COOL to own ^^;.

Wrath fanart = LOVE.

The perspective thing rocks; kinda like a fisheye...lens...thing. Wrath's all "hehehe...I see you...and you're gonna DIE. mwahahhaaha". =D
airairoairairo on August 28th, 2004 01:09 am (UTC)
The Wrath drawing is beautiful. I love the expression and the perspective.
Hey tharnaruto_nerd on August 28th, 2004 03:43 pm (UTC)
