A Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood cosplayer went viral on Instagram after bringing homunculus Lust to life with an insanely accurate costume.

Originally debuting as a manga in 2001, Fullmetal Alchemist became a hit when it was adapted into an anime in 2003. However, the series’ remake, Brotherhood, later exploded into a worldwide phenomenon and is often considered a modern-day classic.

The story revolves around brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric, who both practice alchemy. Celebrating the show’s antagonist, a cosplayer transformed into Lust. The artist looks so much like her, it’s almost as if the homunculus has clawed her way out of the screen.

Fullmetal Alchemist cosplayer becomes real life Lust

Brotherhood centers around Edward Elric who desperately is trying to get his brother Alphonse’s body back. The sibling’s soul became bound to a piece of armor after the duo’s alchemy experiment went sideways.

Throughout the show, the two brothers face off against the homunculus, which includes Lust. Prolific cosplayer Angie ‘roga_na_noge‘ Strelnikova made waves on social media after sharing their mind blowing true-to-life take on the villain.

The talented artist posed in the character’s black leather dress, which has a slit on the right side. Angie faithfully re-created Lust’s long claws, which grow out of her fingers in the anime.

The cosplayer’s incredible take on the anime villain is full of details, such as the Ouroboros crest that sits above her chest. They also nailed the homunculus’ face, accurately mirroring her long wavy black hair and striking mauve colored eyes.

Despite airing over a decade ago, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is often ranked as the top anime of all time in terms of popularity. Over 10 years later, fans can’t get enough of its incredibly dark story and epic action sequences.

Those interested in watching the series are in luck, as the remake is available in its entirety on Netflix right now. You can also catch it on Crunchyroll and Funimation as well.


My Hero Academia cosplayer hits a Comet Home Run as Ochaco Uraraka

Ochaco Uraraka is one of the most charming characters in My Hero Academia, but even though she’s a popular pick in the cosplay community, it’s hard to find an outfit that looks as awesome as this one.

Ochaco Uraraka was first introduced in the third episode of My Hero Academia, and fans have loved her ever since. Generally, she’s upbeat, positive, laid-back, and a little air-headed at times.

However, she can be extremely determined and focused at times, and hates being underestimated. Plus, she has an incredible quirk known as ‘Zero Gravity.’ It lets her make specific targets immune to the effects of gravity and can be used in a variety of ways. 

Uraraka is a favorite among fans due to her sweet personality.

Ochaco’s hero costume is made up of a black bodysuit with a pink design down the middle. It also has two black circles on her chest, a black rectangle below her waist, and two pink patches over her shoulders. She also wears pink armbands, a choker, a belt, wrist guards, and knee-high boots.

It’s one of the most iconic hero costumes in the show, and cosplayers love re-creating it as authentically as they can. However, a cosplayer named honeyrabbiit brought it to life in the most incredible way.

The picture of honeyrabbiit’s cosplay has already generated more than 20,000 likes, which is insane. The numbers keep on rising. She also made it herself, except for the wig, which was made by bep.cosplays.

In fact, it was so well-received, she posed in it again alongside bep.cosplays, who also happened to be wearing an awesome Katsuki Bakugo costume. “All I remember is that I was freezing and I took a hot bath after this shoot,” she said.

The second picture also has pulled more than 10,000 likes. It seems like My Hero Academia fans know an incredible cosplay when they see it, and won’t hesitate to pour in with support.

Of course, the epic photography from arcane_shutter in both shots was a nice touch, too. If we’ve learned anything from the show, it’s that a team effort can go a long way. The success of this honeyrabbiit’s cosplay is a good example of that.
