Edward Elric Cosplay Dilemma
Posted 24 April 2013 - 05:38 PM
I realize he's a fairly common cosplay choice, but I've only been to one (!) other (tiny) con, and I can't remember all of what the Ed cosplayer I saw there had on. A GIS for Ed cosplay wasn't helpful either as it was hard to tell from pictures if people had automail AND the black jacket.
It's possible I'm overthinking this, but I also don't want to look like an idiot. So, can I leave the jacket behind, or should I buck up and find a way to include it? Thanks in advance for any advice.

I'd say, don't let others ruin your cosplay. If you think the cosplay will be more comfortable without the jacket then go with that. I'm sure no one will point you out if you do end up leaving it out and even so you'll still have Ed's signature red jacket on.

Ah, that does help! I've been working through the show in fits and spurts over the course of several months, so I don't always remember details like that (hell, I can't always remember what happened in the previous episode).
