Made this in the two days before the con, like normal.
I bought the wig - it was a pale blonde, so to get that cartoony look I went to town with the yellow sharpie dying technique. It permanantly stained the carpet in the garage (which I am unsure why we have in the first place), got be really high off the fumes, probably destroyed a million or so brain cells, but otherwise seemed to work pretty well!
I was terribly disappointed with the way the wig turned out...cut it way too short in the front with the bangs and all. This is what happens when a girl with a big head tries to 1.) cut a wig when she has no experience cutting hair of any sort, and 2.) cut said hair on a wig head when the girl in question has a hugely massive head.
I made the wider belt out of fake upolstory leather, and damn I liked how it turned out. The coat was thin, and I didn't do the best job painting the Flamel on the back, but eh, first time making something like that.
Same with the shirt - I made it out of a bedsheet and white bias tape, and it was awesome! Until I made the clasp out of silver foil wrapped craft foam and PUT THE DAMN SNAPS ON UNEVENLY OMG HOW DUMB. I was not impressed with myself.
I painted a pair of boots, bought myself a FMA Alchemist's watch, and wore gloves (sometimes) to hide the fact I couldn't be bothered to build automail. The pants were some HELLA SHINY dress pants I had, and the back undershirt was a tanktop that I magically produced by means better left unknown.
I made Fat Edward jokes all weekend, and also - I WAS THE TALLEST ED AT THE CON. There are pictures, somewhere, of me mocking every other Ed I came across. And some Roys. Because yeah, why not.
