Hello, everyone, I was just wondering if anyone could give me advice or some character maps of the main character Alphonse from Full Metal Alchemist. Last year at Otakon 2004 at the Baltimore Inner Harbor Convention Center, I cosplayed as Vicious from Cowboy Bebop. I put forth great effort in the final outlook of the costume and was quite pleased. Anyway I would like to under go my first Cosplay Challenge so is why I am asking for suggestions for an Alphonse (Al) costume. If this goes to fault I may try to create a Lord Ilpalazzo costume from Excel Saga (Heh yeah I like confusion ^^). Anyway any help at all on this project would be greatley appreciated... -Dementous

well if you ask me i think Alphonse is a really difficult cosplay to touch. since your still a newbie i think you should try going with Ilpalazzo. hes a good challenge too but whoa Alphonse.. if your really set on cosplaying him you should talk to Trabus, he made a Al cosplay and it came out amazing. maybe you can ask him for some tips. good luck.

There's a gigantic thread called "Full Metal Alchemist?" that, while it DOES contain spoilers for much of the series, has a lot of discussion about Al cosplay.

.......have you seen the entire series?

I know but I decided to try to get a new thread for some answers cuz reading that was like a book >.<' Up to 70 or 80 something pages...

You could try Amethyst Angel's armormaking tutorial if you wanted your suit to be simplified... ::pokes link:: http://amethyst-angel.com/armormaking.html

I don't recommend fiberglass if you are new; you have so much longer to live, too. However, the law of nature forbids me from preventing anyone's inhaling dangerous fumes:

In other news, I, when I get the funding, have a plan to dress as Ed and make my little sister a bodysuit and have her dress as Al. She's only a little taller than me, though, so either she would just be a short variant of Al or I'd have to come up with a way that she could see through the torso... lol, if I managed to do that, I could throw her head, like in the first episode/first manga chapter!

LOL, if I gave my sister stilts she would sell them on eBay to fuel her anime craze. Or possibly sacrifice them to the otaku god. >,<; *my sister knows no shame*
