View Full Version : Does anybody else start laughing when they see a tall Ed?

I saw one and didn't stop for ten minutes. It's nothing against the cosplayer, as they're always super good, but just...the height.

I just find it very awkward being 4'10 and looking up at all the other Eds I encounter.

kinda judgmental don't you think? outta be ashamed, bad enough folks look at cosplayers as freaks in normal society now i read this...

No, not really; it's just that Ed is supposed to be short, it's very much a part of his character. But then again, I'm a short person who's cosplayed tall people, so the reverse should be all right too. Where do you stop? Personally, I think if you can have a blue-eyed Ed because they couldn't afford gold contacts, you can have a tall Ed because they didn't want height reduction surgery. I'd still mess with a tall Ed, though, just because it's funny.

Luckily I'm tallish (5'9") myself, so most Ed's I see are shorter than myself

I always find it a little chuckle worthy. But it can work if there's an even taller Col Mustang around!
I also find it really cute/funny when there's a kid as a short Ed. There was a funny pair I saw once that was a young girl (looked around 12) as Ed, and her dad was Major Armstrong. Blond curl on the forehead and everything. Gave me giggles for a full minute.

I've seen Ed cosplayers taller than me. I think as long as they look good as that character, it shouldn't matter. And besides, I remember a scene where he was imagining himself taller, so...you could always roll with that XD!!

If you really love cosplay, just be confident to cos the character. Practice and play...
As for the height, the age and the costume, it is not the key. Do you agree with me?

It makes me giggle a little. I'm currently helping my cousin with her Ed costume. She's 5'4" (Ed's height) so I think she's going to pull it off well I think. I get the joy of following her around all day calling her pipsqueak (I'm going as Envy to the same Con) :D
