Automail Arm (Edward Elric) Cosplay

Category: Anime

Completed: 100%

Cost: $ Aus60

Hours to Make: 10-20

First worn at: Wai-Con 2004

Inspiration: Edward Elric's Automail arm... now who wouldn't want something like THIS in their room? (Personally, I use it as a trophy XD)

Favorite Aspect: It was so very very technical. We used as many character reference images as possible, so it's as close to the original as it can be (barring the sheer impossibilities).

Least Favorite Aspect: Having to wear the black rubber arm-glove while bits of the automail were being superglued onto it. Believe it or not, superglue gets incredibly hot once it starts adhering to something. It burns!! AIEEE~!

Easiest Task: Probably the studding. It was just snip, slide, then HAMMER LIKE WOAH.

Hardest Task: Definitely the small finger-joints. Oh, and covering each individual piece in vinyl before gluing them into shapes. Augh... took so long!
