When I was 16 years old, I threw together a make shift closet cosplay of Winry Rockbell. I used my own hair and I didn't even have a wrench. But that was my first cosplay and I was very proud to pull it off and become a character I loved.
Finally years later, I am able to give Winry justice. This time I put together her most notable outfit from Brotherhood. I love how she looked so grown up when she wore this, especially in contrast to the white tank top and skirt outfit we *both* wore at 16.
Winry will always hold a special place in my heart. She was not only the first character I cosplayed but the first I was really associated with, and a huge reason of why I actively started watching anime.
Now that I have a new Winry, I hope to wear her much more in the future!
