FMA: Storms Ahead by SkywingKnights FMA: Storms Ahead by SkywingKnights
Edit:

:excited: I just got word that this won best Edward Elric cosplay in :iconthe-da-ranger-group:'s Edward Elric Month! :dance: :party: :glomp: Thank you so much to everyone who voted for it in the contest! You guys are amazing!!!

----

So this is dedicated to my Winry-chan :iconlostdreamz82: :tighthug:, who ironically actually took this pic. Neither of us seem to be able to get enough of FMA, I swear, but that's okay, because it's a very fun series to cosplay from. This is also my submission for :iconthe-da-ranger-group:'s Edward Elric Cosplay contest, so I hope you think it lives up to all the FMA and Edward Elric awesomeness! :aww: Here's the poll, in case you guys are interested: [link]

This was taken a couple of weeks back when I went to visit her. We visited an area where they had a lot of old trains still in use and had pretty much a field day taking photos. I was really happy to get to take pictures at a place like that, since it seemed just like a place in Amestris. :excited: So fun!

The whole cosplay was made by me, including the automail. I also made the extension for the blade version of Ed's automail and one of the spears that he transmutes as well, though it's not pictured here. I also styled the wig and did my own make up for this as well. Overall, this cosplay was one of the most fun to make and wear around. :w00t:

Anyway, I really hope you like the shot!

Awesome cosplay! I love the way you've used the trains as the background- they add another element to the photo! And the composition is really nice- the diagonal angle you used really works well here. And the auto-mail arm looks really profesh! :heart:

Thank you so very much! I'm so glad that you like it! The location was actually my Winry's suggestion (I had never been there before), but when I saw it, I nearly died I was so happy with it. She was also the master photographer of this shot. -sends her thank you flowers for it- And thank you about the automail! It was the second time I had made anything 'armor' like and I nearly lost the feeling in my fingers while making it, so I'm glad that it was worth it! :huggle:

Thank you! My Winry actually found this place. I nearly died when I saw it in person. I felt like I had just stepped into Amestris. It made it all the more fun to shoot there too. :excited:

Lol, hardly, no. The train on the tracks behind me wasn't actually moving. Plus it's the back of the train, so luckily on my part even if it started moving it would have headed away from me. :faint: Glad you like the cosplay though! :aww:

:excited: Thank you so very much! I'm so glad that you like it! And thanks! I really wanted to go for a realistic style for Ed's hair. For the antenna the most I generally do is try to fluff a strand up higher than the others. -shrugs- I play around with it a lot, so we'll see what happens with it. :aww:
