Good morning everyone, It’s a lovely Sunday morning and for some
reason, I decided to wake up at 6:00 am and write a fire emblem
post. Why you ask? Obviously to write this awesome fire emblem
cosplay post. Fire Emblem characters are very iconic and almost
This game history is very extensive and spans several games
including fire emblem three houses, fire emblem awakening, and
fire emblem echoes. These characters are so popular that several of
them have been included in the smash brothers series and are
commonly cosplayed at every convention.
Just recently at momocon, I had the pleasure of photographing an
Ike and a chrom. Both characters I enjoy playing in smash
brothers as they kill at very low percentages. Today we are going to
look at the price of cosplaying these characters along with sites that
sell these costumes.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to find the individuals parts of
each costume sold separately so you’re only option is to purchase
the completed set or build it from scratch. If anyone does find the
sets sold separately, feel free to let everyone know in the
comments below. And with that being said let’s dive into it.
Ike smashed his way into the fire emblem franchise in 2005, with
his intro into fire emblem radiance. He is the leader of the Greil
Mercenaries and son of Greil and Elena. Anyone that has faced this
character in smash brothers or played fire emblem radiance
knows just how devastating this character can be.
He wields Ragnell. This sword is blessed and nearly indestructible.
If you’re considering Ike as your cosplay character, you can snag
his costume for about $130. Grabbing Ragnell will run you
another $138 bucks and his blue hair wig is about $20 bringing
your total to $288 bucks for the cosplay. Not terribly expensive.
Chrom is another character that has found his way into the smash
brothers franchise. He the prince of his nation and wields
falchion. Stemming from fire emblem awakening and mirroring
IKE, chrom is extremely strong and is capable of killing characters
at very low percentages. Another notable fact is he is the father of
the smash character Lucina.
In the fire emblem series, his class is known as great lord and
allows him access to a wide array of skills including aether, aegis,
and bowbreaker. You can pick up chroms cosplay for $133 bucks.
Falchion (his sword) will set you back another $114 bucks. Lastly,
his shoulder piece and wig will run you about $116 and $13
dollars bringing your total to $376. A little pricey but hey, you gotta
pay to play.
Next up we have Marth. We could say Marth and Roy paved the
way for there fellow shadow emblem brethren as far as the smash
brothers franchise goes. His back story is one of sorrow. After his
birth country was destined for war, his father sent him to a
neighboring more peaceful land. After his father was betrayed,
Marth vowed to reclaim his homelands and restore it to its former
He is also of the great lord class and appeared in the fire emblem
shadow dragon and blade of light series. His skill set includes
charm, Astra and Sol. Cosplaying as Marth is always a pleasant site
and this cosplay costume will run you about $160. His
accompanying sword is about $83 paired with his $28 wig and you
have a grand total of $271 dollars.
My personal favorite on the list and from the fire emblem series we
have Roy. He is one of the most expensive costumes on the list,
probably why he is my favorite. I mean who doesn’t like to hear the
chant “Roys our Boy, Roys Our Boy” in smash brothers? Anyways,
Roy made his appearance in the Fire Emblem binding blade game.
He is the son of Eliwood which is the main character of the game.
Roys personality is very upbeat and he’s always looking to help
others. He values friendship and demonstrated empathy making
him just an overall good guy. See why he’s my favorite? Some of his
skills include Astra, Night Sky and desperation blow. Cosplaying as
Roy will set you back $334 along with his binding blade sword at
$109, boots $37 and a red wig for $16 bring you to $496 dollars.
Now for one of the “Bad guys”. Arvis, unfortunately, did not make
it into the smash brothers series but there’s always hope with the
next installment. Arvis was first introduced in fire emblem
Genealogy of the Holy wars game. He has the ability to control fire
magic and is known for his Rising flame and Growing flame
abilities. I will spare you the boring storyline and bloodline details
of the character and simply state he’s rather powerful and his
cosplay costume is awesome.
I mean look at the image, even if you are not a fire emblem fan
how could you not want to cosplay as this guy? To be camera ready
as Arvis, you will need to invest a solid $168 dollars for this
cosplay along with $12 buck for the wig and $40 for his boots. On
the bright side, you can photoshop the fire so that’s some money
saved right? Lol
Robin is another character that made it into the super sash
brothers universe. Robin was released in fire emblem awakening
and then again in super smash brothers. Like several characters in
the fire emblem universe, Robin has a rather unfortunate back
story. Specifically, he becomes possessed and kills Chrom. On the
bright side, he develops amnesia and forgets the entire thing
No regrets if you don’t remember right? Some of his abilities
include thunder, arcfire and elwind. You can snag Robins costume
for $242 buck along with his sword $134, boots $70 and wig for
$13 dollars. This brings you to a total of $459. A good bit to pay buts
its totally worth it.
Last but not least we have Alfonse. No not Alfonse Elric as I’m sure
many of your minds just jumped to, Alfonse from fire emblem
heroes. He is the main protagonist in this series and shocking, a
prince also. Similar in attitude to Roy, Alfonse is a kind serious
man who always aims to keep the order. He actually ends up
joining a group called the order of heroes which obviously does not
make his father happy. This is considered “nonprince like
But when duty calls and trouble threatens the realm, you
can be sure Alfonse will answer its call. Some of his abilities
include Folkvangr, Moonbow and Ardent Sacrifice. If this
post has made you want to cosplay as him then no worries
my friend, I have you covered. Alfonse cosplay can be
purchased for $337 dollars. His sword will run you $153
bucks. Grab yourself a blue cosplay wig for $12 and some
boots for $49 and your boundless photo ready.
As you can tell, I adore fire emblem and really love to see people
cosplay as characters from this series. I was fortunate enough to
capture 2 cosplayers at momocon. I’m hoping this number will
drastically increase at future cons. If you enjoyed this post feel free
to leave a comment below. Also, I know this cosplay post was a bit
expensive so here’s one that may be more your budget. Well, that’s
it for today thanks so much again and as always, stay Boundless!!!
