I was dragged into a Fullmetal Alchemist Homunculus group with my friends. I had only seen four episodes at the time so I didn't know who Wrath was. I was given two reference images and some spoilers and went to work on my costume.
I made the shorts by altering a pair of black tights. I made the shirt out of a small black turtleneck that I've had for what feels like forever. The armband and legband were made out a pair of black socks.
I didn't make the lose T-shirt he wears over his outfit, because I couldn't get clear reference images of it and because no one told me that he wore it all the time. Whoops.
The red "ribbons" were tricky. I made mine at the same time Becky made hers for her Envy costume. We made them out of thin strips of red felt that we sewed to the costume. They were a little annoying since if I taped them completely to my skin, I wouldn't be able to move and stretch properly.
I ended up using my own hair for this costume because my hair is long and shaggy enough to do it, and because since I made this costume as a favour, I didn't want to buy a wig.
I learned that this is a poor choice of a costume to wear in the middle of winter. It lacks... clothes.
