Edward Elric
Fullmetal Alchemist 鋼の錬金術師

This costume was created using red cotton. The pattern actually came from Cosmode magazine. The coat was finished with an iron on transfer, a tight satin stitch and a button to keep the hood in place. Leather pants came from a motorcycle shop and the boots, with a red sole, came from Doc Martens. The wig is from Arda Wigs.

With this costume, I mostly get e-mails about the automail. It is craft foam with silver pleather over it. The details were made using layering and heavy duty snaps. The tutorial is here: Amethyst Angel's Automail Tutorial. I watched "Spartacus" while making the automail and strongly suggest you include that in your process.
