Fullmetal Alchemist is filled with incredible characters for cosplayers to take on, but one Lust homage perfectly balances sheer elegance and horrific design for a chilling combination.

The legendary manga-turned-anime has captivated fans for a long time with its lighthearted humor and twisted plots. But possibly the most striking part is the ensemble of characters whose stories leave a lasting mark on its audience.

Some of the most interesting characters are the show’s Homunculus, who are chief antagonists of a plot against the Elric brothers throughout the events of the show.

Ithileryn perfectly captured the calm disposition of the antagonist, but she also went one step further to really bring out the terror of the Homunculus.

To accompany the design she remade Lust’s elongated claws she uses to strike her victims down.

The addition of the claws instantly turned the cosplay from soft beauty to unsettlingly beast, as the claws reach out from her hand in a disturbing Slenderman-esque manner.

To say Ithileryn pulled off Lust is an understatement seeing as the design really nails the Fullmetal Alchemist character’s range of appearances.
