No, not really; it's just that Ed is supposed to be short, it's very much a part of his character. But then again, I'm a short person who's cosplayed tall people, so the reverse should be all right too. Where do you stop? Personally, I think if you can have a blue-eyed Ed because they couldn't afford gold contacts, you can have a tall Ed because they didn't want height reduction surgery. I'd still mess with a tall Ed, though, just because it's funny.
