DescriptionI love Fullmetal Alchemist, and I love Ed. The movie is actually pretty far down on my list of favourite FMA incarnations (manga is and always will be number one), but I like the historical aspects to this costume, and number one best thing ever, I can wear it without a wig.
It was great to be able to make an entire costume with barely any pattern alterations. The pants and vest are straight out of the pattern envelope, and the shirt has only a few minor tweaks. I drafted the collar onto an existing coat pattern, bought some gloves, and done!
I've worn this costume a lot, especially on days I didn't want to bother with a wig. Since I've now cut my hair, I would consider it retired.
