View Full Version : FMA cosplay help

06-11-2005, 09:23 PM
Me and my friends are gonna do an FMA group one year, but I have no idea who to be. I have long dyed black hair and blue eyes, 5"5. I don't want to be one of the humonculous(sp?), though. So this is a real hard one for me >< I'd be willing to dye my hair, but black is really hard to cover-up. My friend's going as Izumi, so I can't be her. I'm sure my guy friend will go as Ed, so I'm screwed there, too. Any suggestions, guys?

You could be Lyra(Lyla)/Dante or Rose... and that's all I can think of, sorry.

I don't think you should let your hair color hold you back because I cosplayed as a character with white hair and I naturally have black hair I didn't really want to bleach it... But you could be Roy Mustang and cut your hair?

Thanks Fuyu. My friend (who's going as Izumi) always picks at me about how unaccurate my hair is to certain cosplays -_-; Sometimes I wanna kick myself for dying my hair (since it used to be dirty blonde). I'm actually growing my hair out for future cosplay and dying it dark blue.

One word: Wig.

Wigs are invaluable for most FMA cosplay. There are a few oddball styles that suck as wigs, but almost everything else can be easily just slammed on your head with a properly styled wig.

If it's not black-black (jet black), you could be Trisha (brown hair). Or be "future Lt. Ross" (currently short brown hair, but hey, might work)....
