Boy, i hope this is posted in the right section…hey out there!

I'm about to attempt my first foray into actual cosplay (aside from adorning myself with keychains and memorabilia and following my friends around with the group camera). Admittedly, it's going to be an FMA fancharacter, but I still need to make the State Alchemist uniform.

I have no sewing experience past a half-year class in middle school, and borrowing my mom's machine is out of the question (due to a near-1,000 mile drive). I do have several veteran cosplay friends who have volunteered to help me, but I was still wondering…

…what kind of advice can you give a first-time cosplayer like me?

first of all, if you dont have a machine, id just buy a costume, i know ur a fanbased character, but you could pick a character on FMA like yours for example risa if you want to do the female state army personnel
if you dont want to buy anything, you can find a tutorial on this site for the uniform
