"Metal" Arm for costume
Post By outgum. 11/05/11, 01:54 pm

Just trying to get ideas to create a metal arm for my Full Metal Alchemist costume of Edward.
I dont HAVE to have one, but would like to get as close to the actual costume as i can, If its not possible for me ill just glove my hand and keep it covered.

But at the moment my idea is a full hand/arm glove, with metal cutting ( shaped to match ed's arm) but i dont quite know how im going to do it.... Maybe even plastic... Or i could buy a cheap one pre made, idk, its so complicated... any suggestions would be nice

This tutorial's pretty good-

There's also a whole bunch of videos of people making the arm on youtube by the looks of it, so maybe watch a few of those for ideas? C:
