Introduction: Easy Winry Rockbell Costume
I have wanted to throw together this costume ever since I first saw the show. If you don't know who Winry is or what FullMetal Alchemist is, I strongly suggest you watch it. It is amazing and if you don't like subtitles, it has great dubbing with great voice actors.
Back to the costume. This is one of the outfits she is seen in casually. She also has a jumpsuit outfit that is cool, but I don't own a purple jumpsuit.
The outfit is easy, if you have the pieces, the only thing I spent time on was recreating her hair.
(I was trying to imitate a pose I saw her in, but it is hard to flex with a crescent wrench in your hand)
Step 1: Clothes
Gather together the clothes you will need.
White Tank (I used a white beater with a white simple tank under)
Step 2: Hair
If you have bangs, this part will be easier. If you have all long hair like me, you have to get your hair under control. Swoosh your bangs to one side and convince them to stay there. (I washed my hair and forced them to one side before I worked on my hair)
As you can see in the third and forth picture, there are four sections of hair for Winry. The pony tail, each of the sides that hangs down, and the bangs. (my bangs merged with one of the sides)
I used a straightener to get my hair to lie as flat as possible, as anime hair can do when it wants to. I also did it to help the pony tail kind of stick up a bit in the back and be a bit more prominent.
Divide it up and straighten it out. I straightened it before putting my hair back and after, in an attempt to tame it. Also, make sure the side sections stay in front of the ears, like Winry, try to just take hair that will more naturally fall there.
Step 3: You're Winry
What an easy way to be a part of FullMetal Alchemist!
(I had fun being Winry!)
