A group of cosplayers have shown off their take on Fullmetal Alchemist with some incredible Envy and Lust outfits. 

Fullmetal Alchemist is one of the most popular anime and manga series in the world. It’s based around two teenagers who uncover a sinister plot threatening their country and fight off a countless number of villains in an attempt to stop it.

The main villains are based on the seven deadly sins – Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, and Pride. Two of these, Envy and Lust, have now been turned into a mind-blowing cosplay that is sure to wow people that aren’t fans of the series. 

BonesLust and Envy are two fan-favorite Fullmetal Alchemist characters.

Cosplayers ‘Molza’ and ‘Tajfu’ showed off their stunningly accurate versions of Envy and Lust on November 20, completely amazing fans of the show and fellow cosplayers.

The two outfits are near-perfect copies of the characters in the show, as the simple dark clothes combine amazingly with the unique aspects of each character. Lust’s iconic tattoo and claws top off her outfit, while Envy’s staple sharp, black hair unmistakably mirrors that of the character.

Not only are the clothes and accessories on point, but the cosplayers have also created a perfect dark setting that fits the characters and captured their spirits in their poses.

Tajfu’s sly smile is incredibly reminiscent of Lust, while Molza shows off Envy’s cheeky attitude with a bold pose and playful expression. It’s easy to think this could be an official live-action version of Fullmetal Alchemist.

Many fans of the series focus their cosplays around fan-favorite Lust. However, this is possibly one of the most impressive versions yet due to the sheer accuracy and detail.

The addition of Envy only furthers how amazing the cosplay is, as not only is the outfit incredible, but the two characters are often found plotting together. There will undoubtedly be more Fullmetal Alchemist and Lust cosplays in the future – but will they be able to beat this one?

A Kill la Kill cosplayer made waves on Instagram after sharing her true-to-life take on protagonist Ryuko Matoi. The artist transformed into the anime heroine with an insanely accurate costume.

Kill la Kill exploded onto the anime scene in 2013, and took viewers by surprise with its over the top story and break-neck speed animation. The Studio Trigger show became an instant hit, and is still influential years later.

A talented cosplayer celebrated the series, by bringing its protagonist Ryuko Matoi to life. The artist’s faithful re-creation is so accurate, it’s almost as if the fierce heroine has slashed her way out of the screen.

The anime wastes no time and opens up with Ryuko discovering the death of her father. Following the clues left behind, the strong-headed protagonist enrolls in Honnōji Academy to find the killer who destroyed her family.

Cosplayer ‘kawaiitsu‘ made waves on Instagram by bringing the heroine to life with an incredible costume. Photographer ‘lina_fk‘ captured the artist posing in the heroine’s navy-blue sailor uniform while wielding a prop of Matoi’s iconic red scissor blade.

In the story, the outfit is actually a living creature called Senketsu. Kawaiitsu faithfully created the entity’s eye in the form of the red and yellow patch which sits under her left collar.

Despite releasing almost a decade ago, Kill la Kill still continues to be a fan favorite. Studio Trigger’s fierce protagonist has become a beloved character that cosplayers love to bring to life.

While there has so far been no talks about a second season, fans can experience the story with new cutscenes in the 2019 fighting game IF. The Bandai developed title lets players relive the series like never before.
