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

: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:
