Cosplayer ValNika > Costume of Winry Rockbell from Fullmetal Alchemist
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Wasn't too hard of a costume but it was still a challenge.
The pants were the craziest part. I bought them as white pants from Kohl's. I bought rit dye and attempted to dye them purple. It worked well for the most part, but somehow I got powder from the dye on my hands before I started, and that caused darker purple splotches to appear on the pants. Good thing they're in fairly hidden areas :)
The bandanna was easy. I can't remember the exact length of fabric that I bought, but it happened to be the perfect size for my head, so all it needed was a hem!
The shirt took a long time...bought some black fabric and measured my body. I attempted to do it all by myself and it ended up being about an inch too small...my bra was peeking out >_< So I had to do it all over! Blargh. But in the end it looks great :D
The wig I reused from my Liz cosplay, and I already had brown flip flops. The shoes aren't quite accurate but I felt like saving money. I'll get new sandals someday.
The wrench I bought at the grocery store for $10...I got asked once to put it away during the con because it was live steel, but I still took it out for pictures and stuff haha
