Alphonse ~ armoured version

ok so i haven't been into anime or cosplaying for very long, and decided id take the dive and get right into. FMA was the second anime i have ever watched and alphonse just came across as THE favourite character. so naturally i had to cosplay as him.

searching for pep files brought me to pep masters thread on here and i set to work.

all up start to finish it took me 6 weeks (maybe less, i didnt take a whole lot of notice)
it isnt 100% but it will be worked on and improved over the next year or so.

This is just wow O.O! I have heard quite some ppl talking about taking up the challenge of this cosplay. But I have never seen a single finished version at a con up till now, not to mention such a good one O.O. I'm really impressed and it's a shame that I won't be able to see it for real.
Besides it's a bonus that you even had Xiao-Mei with you xD, very cute! Have to admit I didn't notice at first, since the cosplay on itself was just too much of an eye-catcher.

hey mate,

to seal the foam all you need to do is a few coats of PVA glue. or ELMERS glue as its called in some places. may even just be called wood glue.

then you can use light coats of spray paint straight over the top. the paint does keep some flexibilty by doing light coats, but will crinkle and peel if to bend it around too much
