Hi there everyone,

Thanks for taking the time to read this. I love FMA, and I really want a cosplay, preferably of Roy Mustang, so after days of searching, I came across one on e-bay (Roy Mustang Cosplay) (I know the insignia is a Captain's one, where is should be a Colonel, I have talked to the seller, and they said they have both, it's just some people prefer Captain, and they can't do General sad.gif), and because I am OCD, I carefully examined the pictures in the auction, and unfortunately, found a couple of mistakes (or so I think, I might be wrong, and this is the reason why I created a new topic), so I was wondering, could fellow fans of FMA help me in deciding whether to get this cosplay or not (if not, is there anywhere else I can get it, me and sewing machines don't work well, so I have resorted to buying one instead, and if there is somewhere else, do they sell the holster/belt like the one I found), like is it the right colour, is the holster correct and stuff, and if the mistakes I found are actual mistakes?

Here are the mistakes:

1) The back doesn't have the upside triangle, I don't know if that is true in the anime/manga or if it's just the picture, but anyway, here is what I mean

2) The length of the actual cut seems a bit short, should that be increased, or is it fine just the way it is, because I have talked to the seller, and that is possible.

3) I have noticed this quite a lot, there are colours on the left hand side of Roy's chest, they are also present on Alex Armstrong as well (I think), what are they, because I can't find them on most cosplays, especially this one that I want to buy. Here's what I mean .

Apologies for writing so much, it's just I really want to make sure I have a perfect uniform
Thanks again
