http://www.100megsfree4.com/generations/alchemists/Edward%20Elric.jpg

now there is a tutorial for the automail so i don't need anyhelp with that

i have an idea for the shirt like for the white lining i am sure i could just sew white thread into it

but anyway any help i can get would be awesome

oh and for the gloves i can draw the sign on them so all i need to know is where to but the gloves

i would either ask my sister Risaline E or ask a commisioner about the automail, i know that most of us cosplayers stay away from Ebay because you have to be uber spasific on the size of the clothing, but i would go with ebay myself....

You best bet it to take a pattern that has a mandarin collar (like this: CLICK (http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/patterns/sewingpatterns.pl?patternid=3318)).

Then you can just modify it to look like Ed's. I didn't use that pattern, but I made a dress for a wedding a few years ago that had a similar pattern, and then used the dress to make the shirt. Not too hard at all! =D

and Ed's glove are just a plain white glove. The transmutation circles are on Alphonse's glove, not Ed's! ;)

I cosplayed Ed a few years ago, and for his black jacket I bought a plain guy's button-up jacket with a collar, popped it, and sewed a wide white ribbon trim all the way around the edges. Simple enough, and the white was used to cover the buttons as well. :)

For his coat I bought a cotton trench coat and dyed it red - only thing you've got to watch out for is red is a SUPER difficult colour to keep in, well, anything. It turned orange pretty quick after a few washes. I really need to dye it again. >3>

I used a unisex jacket pattern for both the inner and outer jackets and just tweaked the hem. For the inner jacket, I used white bias tape for the trim.
