View Full Version : Edward's (FMA) Jacket Emblem?

12-15-2004, 05:06 PM
I am cosplaying Edward and I am working on the jacket, but how did fellow Edward cosplayers make the emblem on the back of his jacket?

I am a horrible fabric cutter but I was thinking I iron on the emblem and print the emblem and iron it on the back of the jacket, but does anybody have a GOOD picture of the emblem. And if not, any ideas on how you made yours?

And no, I am NOT making the automail. I am horrible at making weapons.

This is from another thread... http://forums.cosplay.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=10558 It's the scan of the tattoo set (I flipped it first, though, so it's showing the right way).

As for applying, you could try applique (different fabric, heat-n-bond, then sew, or sew it down by hand, or machine, or something), fabric paint, felt, or even embroidering it on, like one friend of mine did. If you have access to it, possibly silkscreening would work. I personally enjoy the control I get with fabric paints, but that's me. I like Setacolor brand.

yeah, that's all I did...painted it on. I messed up a little, but it was completely freehand, so...yeah.

I silk screened mine, and it looks fab. It's also an exact replica because I took it from a scan, which is nice. I wouldn't recommend a freehand paint job, because it looks just like that -- a freehand paint job. It's basically impossible to get nice sharp lines without a stencil. If you don't want to bother with a silkscreen (it's super easy, it just takes a little investment in materials), I'd definitely recommend appliquing it to get a nice sharp design. Steam-a-Seam will hold it nicely in place while you applique it down.
