    Elric Cosplay... suggestions?

    Post by eneq on Wed Apr 04, 2012 6:32 am

    Hey

    Got the urge todo a Elric of Melnibone cosplay character, any suggestions on gear? Initial browsing brings up Silver Knight Sword (needs to be long and blackish), was considering cursed sword of artorias as well which kinda works with the mythology a bit (might be a bit too big tho...).

    For armor i am not sure, black knight armor mixed with something from black set and gargoyles helmet or no helmet at all (or something unobtrusive).

    And ofcourse a parrying dagger or similar in the offhand.

    Any other suggestions?

    From what I can find on google search the Dark Armor might be a good bet for you, as well the Barbed Straight sword is a black sword, althought it is barbed of course. The sword of Artorias probably looks the most like his weapon, however it is a great sword while his is merely a longsword. A tough call really. Silver knight is probably the closest while ignoring color.

    I invaded a guy once whose name suggested he was doing this. I don't remember the armor but I think he used a Velka's rapier. It's been a long time since I looked at any of the books so I would be hard pressed to gauge his accuracy.

    Thanks for the input happy

    Considered Velka as well due to the handguard look but still its a rapier class and doesnt quite fit imo, but I think ill try it as well (Silver Knight Sword, Velkas, Cursed Artoria)

    When it comes to armor I think Dark Armor is somewhat off in look, I will probably try with the Black knight/Black Armor and Kirks for the chest paired with other slimmer looking items.

    what about the dark sword? too fat? and if you need to darken the silver knight sword... use poison resin on it!

    Yeah the dark sword is too fat and not long enough but good idea about the resin, ill have to try that. But frankly the Cursed sword of artorias is kind of perfect, color and hilt is a good match but its a bit too wide, I think Ill have to juggle them around a bit to see what feels right.

    If I had to guess, serious was thinking of Full Metal Alchemist (the only other Elric I can think of). After a quick google images check, the silver knight sword looks the closest, but like Tolvo said, it's the wrong color. I've never used poison, but if it does make it darker, then that could be the perfect plan.
