Fullmetal Alchemist cosplay makes Lust more menacing than she is already

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.

Demon Slayer cosplayer masters Beast Breathing as Inosuke Hashibira

A talented cosplayer embraced his inner beast and transformed into Inosuke Hashibira from Demon Slayer. His fans can’t believe how accurate it is, and neither can we.

Inosuke Hashibira is one of the most hilarious characters in Demon Slayer. He was raised by boars, which is why he’s rough around the edges when it comes to human interaction. He also has a short-temper and unwavering confidence, and it often lands him in hot water.

But despite his flaws, he’s a formidable ally and a powerful Demon Slayer. He’s a skilled swordsman. However, unlike other characters in the show, he prefers wielding two swords instead of a katana. He also taught himself Beast Breathing, which enhances his sense of touch.

Inosuke also doesn’t look like a typical Demon Slayer. Instead of wearing the traditional outfit, he only wears pants, a belt made from brown animal fur, knee-high socks, and sandals. His trademark feature, however, is the iconic boar’s head he wears to mask his face. It belonged to his adoptive boar mother.

Inosuke’s fighting style is courageous and fierce, much like his attitude.

Inosuke looks like he would be an imposing figure in real life. Fortunately, thanks to talented cosplayer Taryn, we know that for sure. He’s cosplayed everything from Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez from Bleach to Sett from League of Legends. They’re all insanely good. However, his Inosuke is on another level.

“Pig Assault! Hashibira Inosuke,” he said. “I missed this guy. What about you? Would you like to see me cosplaying “unmasked” Inosuke? Would you be ready?”

Taryn will undoubtedly nail the unmasked version, and fans would love to see it. However, his masked version is flawless from head to toe. The outfit itself is simple enough, although he re-created it to a tee. But his version of the actual boar mask is out of this world.

Staying true to the character, he took on a martial arts pose in the first picture and two thumbs up in the second. He’s received almost 10,000 likes between them, which is a good chunk of his 90,000 followers.

Taryn takes his cosplaying very seriously, and his dedication shines through in the quality of each piece. All in all, his version of Inosuke is as good as it gets, and he deserves all the praise.
