That's Pit. (He's so adorable) anywhooo, the bow I'm going to be making is the one in the first picture. The bow string will actually light up. It can also be disconnected and stored away inside the bow. :3

Fullmetal Alchemist Military Uniform Info

  A few friends of mine are going to be cosplaying Mustang and his subordinates ,so I decided to make this just as a little help for whoever wants to make a military unifrom from Fullmetal Alchemist.

First off, this is based off Colonel Roy Mustang's uniform from the 2003 anime. The words in orange are what's written in orange in the pictures (in case my handwriting sucks) the green numbers are the differences between Mustang's uniform  and the others. (Sorry for the poor picture quality!)

Uniform Without Top
1) Pockets would be here
2)Comes up to about bellybutton (true waist)
3)Ends at knee
4)Few inches below knee

1) The undershirt. I've noted that many of the military don different undershirts. For example, Roy Mustang wears a simple white button down while Riza Hawkeye wears a brown turtle neck.

Uniform Top

1)Last button (the circular one) touches the collar 
2)Five blue stripes four gold (See 2)
3) Goes from shoulder to under collar

2) Stripes on shoulder. The stripes vary depending on the person's rank. (See this page for the ranks FMA Military Ranks)
3)Badges? Some of the characters have this and some don't. I'm assuming they're awards of sorts. (I don't know much about military things)

Uniform Back

1) Slit ends (about) 1/2 foot (6 in) above knee

4)Back of the uniform/belt part. Riza Hawkeye's I've seen is different, in one episode she wears suspenders? A lot of the other state alchemists wear gun holsters on the back. 


1) Ends a few cm of wrist

5)Gloves. I know that Mustang has gloves while others like Armstrong have something like iron knuckles ,and  others nothing.
Armstrong's metal glove thingys

Mustang's gloves

Well, that's all. I hope it was helpful.

Hello There

     Wow. My first blog post. Well, I might as well introduce myself properly. Hello, you may call me Kitty for short (or you can just call me by my screen name: Geek-tarded_Kitty). I am a regular person who enjoys crafting things and obsessing over my favorite fandoms. (haha)
    I'd a new year and with New Years comes new things right? That's where the idea fort his blog came from. My old blog (GeekyGreatness) never got updated as much as I wanted so I decided to make a new one and try to update it regularly (and make it more interesting as well). This will be my New Years resolution (along with some other things).

     So, lets start off with the actual blogging.
    This summer during July there's going to be a fantastic convention in the lower part of Texas (Mcallen). It's name is Omnicon. During that time four of the main voice actors from the well-known anime ,Fullmetal Alchemist, are going to be there.
They are:

Vic Mignogna -voice of- Edward Elric
Colleen Clinkenbeard Rose -voice of- Thomas and Riza Hawkeye
Aaron Dismuke -voice of- Alphonse Elric
Travis Willingham - voice of- Roy Mustang
(NOTE: These are only the voices they do for Fullmetal Alchemist)

     And scince they're going to be there and I adore the anime, I'm going to take a group of friends to dress up or Cosplay as the characters. I myself am planning to cosplay Edward Elric with an automail arm I'm going to make! My sister will be Rose, my friend Roy, my father Alphonse in his armor (also going to make), and two other friends will be cosplaying Winry Rockbell and Riza Hawkeye.

     This will be fun. Once I've bought a good camra, I'll start uploading photos of progress and mabye some tutorials.

Thanks for reading!
