View Full Version : Color for Roy Mustang Costume

I'm really not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but whatever.

I was planning on making a Mustang costume, but to be honest, my sewing skills are lacking, and his military uniform is pretty hard to do. So, I decided to just buy the costume from a site.

I was thinking of using www.fan-store.net. I've gotten things from it before, and its pretty good.

There are three different colors of the costume.

Here is the costume: http://www.fan-store.net/servlet/the-17/%5BFullMetal-Alchemist-Cosplay%5D-Roy%27s/Detail

There are three colors they have:
Dark Blue
Navy Blue
Sky Blue

Which one is the best, in your opinion?

I'd suggest Dark Blue, personally, cause it'd look realistic versus any other shade of blue...it'd come off as cartoonish looking. I've done a few commissions of the military uniform in Dark blue and it comes up great in any lighting. But it all depends on taste. =3

I agree with the dark blue side. Yes, it's a bit darker than they're drawn, but it looks much better in real life. More uniform-y and less costume-y.
