View Full Version : Needing 3-weeks-to-go Maes Hughes advice

So yeah, with only three weeks to go until Anime Vegas, time has pretty much run out on even thinking of making/assembling my own :(

I'm now trying to decide between a couple of different merchants for Maes Hughes' outfit.

Cosplay House: http://www.cosplayhouse.com/Fullmetal-Alchemist-Maes-Hughes-Cosplay-Costume.html

QQ Cosplay: http://www.qqcosplay.com/FMA/fmamhsble.html

Plus, I could probably modify a Mustang outfit to get it to match as well :/

Through Litb (wholesaler): http://www.lightinthebox.com/FullMetal-Alchemist-Roy-Mustang-Military-Cosplay-Costume-FAYF002-_p101489.html (seems like a color mismatch)

Cosplay Magic: http://www.cosplaymagic.com/alun1.html

Jennifer's Cosplay (ebay): http://cgi.ebay.com/Fullmetal-Alchemist-Roy-Mustang-Military-cosplay-K001-/320419881933?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0

Cost isn't too much of a concern, but I'd like to keep it reasonable :( Depending on the timing a larger place might be able to still do a custom fit, which I'd like since I tend to be a little oddly proportioned. Scouring the forums people have positives and negatives for each one. :/ I'm kind of leaning toward Cosplay House -- if only because they'll custom fit a full set of measurements, and the hit-or-miss reviews they've gotten seem to focus on the more specialized costumes rather than these bolder ones.

So to all you experienced FMA cosplayers out there: any recommendations? at all? :)
