I know someone else already mentioned this, but we've got JAFAX here in the middle of nowhere, also known as Grand Valley State Unversity in Michigan. http://www.jafax.org is the website. It's like a mini version of a convention, but it's still really fun! Oh, and it's FREE.

In a moment of boredom, I searched the web, using GOOGLE, looking for FMA stuff. I think I punched in something, like: FULL METAL ALCHEMIST COSTUMES, then I hit "search". Out of what popped-up, I clicked onto some link(can't remember what it was now, sorry...), and, one thing led to another- and I found this:
AND YES, I ALREADY KNOW IT'S PAST AND OVER-... BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS SOMETHING INTERESTING, AND WORTH MENTIONING, NONE THE LESS.
Vic Mignogna (voice actor extraordinaire) is about to film a small clip for a live action Full Metal Alchemist pilot and is wanting QUALITY FMA cosplayers. Below is what he sent me via email:
I am producing a Fullmetal Alchemist live action fan film. It is going to be a very exciting & high quality project, including several voice actors from the series. We will shoot February 25 and 26th in Houston. I need some cosplayers to play some specific roles in the film, as well as lots of extras who would like appear in it. The film will be shown at anime conventions all over the country, and may even appear as an extra on an upcoming DVD volume of FMA. Featured characters needed are:
Lust Envy Scar Gluttony Roy Mustang Armstrong
Two things are REQUIRED. First that you have a great costume for the character. Secondly, that you look like the character as well. We are trying to put on screen what these characters would look like in real life.
ANYONE, however, who has an FMA costume and would like to appear in the film, we definitely have a place for you! There are several scenes, including the final dramatic climax that we can use all the FMA cosplayers we can get.
Interested? Contact Vic at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to be considered for one of the featured characters, please send a picture of yourself in costume, along with contact information. I will notify those who are selected for the featured roles. THIS IS GONNA BE SO MUCH FUN!
If you think you got what it takes, please drop him a line as the shooting date is coming up.
Sorry about bringing this to you all so late,... but I just ran accross it, myself, just last night. BTW, I originally tried to post this in the ANNOUNCEMENTS & SITE NEWS portion of this site- but it wouldn't let me start a "NEW TOPIC". I did QUICKLY scan the FORUM RULES AND GUIDELINES, and searched the ANNOUNCEMENTS forum for "FAN FILM(s)"," fanfilm", "FANFILM", ect. " and got nothing(so... I knew I wouldn't be DOUBLE-POSTING! ). But I still couldn't figure out how to start a NEW TOPIC. I almost gave up, at that point,... but then, I found this place. So, I hope I'm not stepping on any toes or breaking any grave rules by posting this- like this, here.
I thought it was interesting, and was pretty sure a few others would agree.

6-8 MAY - THEATERHOTEL ALMELO
*waves con flag*
I don't suppose there are alot of people here who'd come, unless you live close enough to the Netherlands (like me ) I'ts quite a big event, and there are many rules to it, but this year is the first time I'll go, so I don't really know how things work down there ^^
I just have to point out that Gas lives pretty near. Isn't she in SB? That is, if she hasn't lied to me and really lives in Afganistan and being a female, I would pray for her. I'd be willing to see another common asian face at the expo, then we'd finally have pics of people who's known for shirking pics. Mei, Gas, me...could you even be in a better state?
And somehow I'll order my aliens to abduct Quis and bring her here.
Actually, at the moment I'm nearer than that. In fact, I just passed SGV several hours ago on my way back.
I'd go, but I'm not really that into anime, and in July I'll be in SB taking summer classes anyway.
