A talented Full Metal Alchemist fan has created a perfect Lust the Lascivious cosplay, bringing the character to life with their incredible take.
Full Metal Alchemist follows the story of brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric, who attempt to bring back their dead mother using alchemy, ending in a terrible mistake that sees Alphonse lose his entire body and his soul placed into a suit of armor.
The pair set out to try and recover his human form, but their journey is full of dark secrets and dangerous enemies, including the Homunculus known as Lust, who shares the same desire to become human that Edward and Alphonse do.
Named after one of the seven deadly sins, Lust is an instantly recognizable character for those who have watched the anime or read the manga, and cosplayer ‘Kyoki’ has captured the character perfectly, with help from photographer ‘milos_ki’.
All seven of the Homunculi in Full Metal Alchemist are branded with Ouroboros, mystical symbols that represent the eternal circle of life and death, or wholeness and infinity. All of these icons feature marks feature a dragon eating its own tail, with Lusts sitting on her chest, something which the cosplayer as matched with incredible accuracy. Even including the unique symbol that sits inside the image of the winged beast.
Kyoki has the same flowing black hear that Lust wears around her shoulders throughout the show, and her form-fitting dress mimics the character’s and includes the long sleeves she wears when not showing off the massive talons she can often be seen sporting throughout the series. The red detailing on both arms is even accounted for, making this incredible cosplay look like it was lifted straight from the series itself.
