A skilled cosplayer created the perfect take on Lust the Lascivious from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and somehow made her even more scary than she is in the anime itself.

Fullmetal Alchemist follows the tale of siblings Edward and Alphonse Elric after their attempt to bring their dead mother back to life using alchemy results in the youngest brother losing his entire body, and his soul being put into a suit of armor.

The two embark on a journey to recover Al’s physical form, but it’s not an easy ride as they uncover dark secrets about their homeland along the way. One of their obstacles is a Homunculus named Lust, which one cosplayer brought to life with an epically terrifying costume.

BonesLust is named after one of the seven deadly sins.

Insanely accurate Lust cosplay

In the show, the antagonist bears the mark of the Homunculus across her chest called Ouroboros, and depicts the eternal cycle of life and death with a dragon eating its own tail – something that Kinny V mimics perfectly in her take.

Another one of the character’s iconic features is her form-fitting black dress, along with her chunky black boots, and they’re replicated with incredible accuracy in the artist’s depiction, too.

The voice actress also nails the 250-year-old demon’s long talons as well, which makes her look even more threatening.

In another shot, the cosplay artist provides a closer look at the dark makeup she chose to represent Lust, using a deep purple lip and smokey eye makeup to tie the whole look together.

It also gives a better glimpse of the character’s black and red patterned gloves, which fully cover her arms all the way up to her armpits.

FMA isn’t the only anime that Kinny has recreated outfits from – she’s also brought characters from other shows such as Blue Exorcist, Blazblue, and Fate Grand Order to life, too.

Despite releasing over 10 years ago, Fullmetal Alchemist is regarded as one of the best shows of all time amongst anime fans due to its gripping story and epic ending.

It can be watched in its entirety on streaming service Netflix, as well as on Funimation and Crunchyroll.

A talented cosplayer brought Steins;Gate protagonist Kurisu Makise to life. The talented artist made waves on Instagram after transforming into the red-haired scientist. 

While Steins;Gate originally made its debut as a visual novel in 2009, the series’ animated adaptation in 2011 is considered one of the best animes of all time. Its complex sci-fi narrative and diverse cast of characters has connected with viewers around the world.

A cosplayer showed her love for the time travel story by transforming into protagonist Kurisu Makise. The artist’s true-to-life take on the scientist is so perfect, it’s almost as if the heroine has changed world lines and warped out of the screen.

The genius scientist is one of the main protagonists in the 2011 anime.

Steins:Gate cosplayer wows as perfect Kurisu Makise

The anime opens with mad scientist Rintarou Okabe discovering a time anomaly involving physicist Kurisu. The heroine eventually joins the protagonist’s makeshift lab, where they discover time travel using a microwave machine and a cellphone. 

Cosplayer Leza ‘someonefromrussia’ made waves on Instagram after sharing her perfect re-creation of the red-haired scientist. Photographer ‘dobrolis’ captured the artist posing in the character’s signature outfit which consists of a white shirt, red tie, and black shorts.

The cosplayer showed off the incredible details of her outfit while mirroring a scene from the show where Makise holds a soda drink hilariously called DK Pepper. She even portrayed the heroine’s quirky sense of fashion by wearing her beige jacket around her elbows.

Leza also teamed up with fellow cosplayer ‘dan.aligieri2011’ who looks like the real life version of Okabe. The duo posed back-to-back for photographer ‘kmitenkova’, who shot them re-creating the anime’s iconic opening sequence.

Despite releasing over a decade ago, Steins;Gate is still incredibly popular and influential. The show is often ranked as one of the top best animes of all time by critics and fans.

The franchise was so beloved that it got a second season over seven years later called “Zero”. Fans can catch all episodes now on streaming services Crunchyroll and Funimation.
