Colonel Roy Mustang

Colonel Roy Mustang of Fullmetal Alchemist

Category: Anime

Completed: 100%

Cost: $ US>50

Hours to Make: 80-100

First worn at: Fanime 2004

Inspiration: After watching episode 13 of Fullmetal Alchemist, the one with the battle between Roy and Ed, I had this idea to do a skit based on Roy's "mini-skirt goal." I managed to get about 8 people in on the idea, but it eventually ended up being just Spookyelectric and me finishing our cosplay.

Favorite Aspect: Learning soo much about sewing and other costume making techniques. Oh, and having it turn out WAY better than I thought it would ^^.

Least Favorite Aspect: Hmm...not much really. Unless you include staying up till 6am for 2 or 3 days straight to finish the cosplay.

Easiest Task: The dress shirt, pants, and boots I had already so that helped.

Hardest Task: The collar was an interesting task to tackle. Since it is not buttoned/closed on the front and sits almost like it's closed, it seems to defy physics. Eventually, SpookyElectric came up with the idea of using a wire. Worked wonders. Oh yes, trim is evil.
