READY STEADY GO. by cupcake-rufflebutt READY STEADY GO. by cupcake-rufflebutt
Character: Mei Chan from Fullmetal Alchemist
Seamstress/Model: Tess [*cupcake-rufflebutt]
Photography/Editing: Ashley [*apertureashley]
Location: A-Kon 2011

Construction Notes:
The majority of the characters I cosplay aren't very physical, so it was exciting to have an excuse to do those sorts of poses while wearing Mei! I love the movement in my braids that Ashley was able to capture, not to mention the terrific atmosphere. If you're interested in the construction of this costume, please feel free to peruse my previous uploads!

Special Request:
Please no critiques/criticism; I'd like to keep this gallery happy! :3

Great cosplay. The costume is perfect and you look like a grown-up version of Mei :)

No I just meant that Mei is much smaller so you look like her after growing up a little :D And you are welcome ;)

Thanks! And hahah, you cosplay a panda? Is is supposed to be a particular panda (like Xiao-Mei, for example) or just a generic panda? I'd love to see pictures. :D

No particular panda I'll get you pictures when me and my friend (who will be cosplaying a homestuck character) go to a con that is coming up it's more like a humaniod panda if you know what I mean. The con is in less than a week so I'll get pictures to you soon!~

She was easily the cutest character in the series, I thought. I loved how when the other characters started looking for her, they identified her as "the girl with the strange cat" or something along those lines XD

Hahah, yup, I really enjoyed her role in the manga. She doesn't seem to get enough recognition among fans, sadly.

I'm just starting to read the manga myself. I loved the Brotherhood anime series.

Thank you! I love the braids, too; they reminded me a lot of my Lulu wig, which I also love.

Thank you! I think a lot of cosplayers just aren't as into the photography/presentation side of the hobby. Different strokes!
