Description
This Cosplay I’m very proud of. It's the second Cosplay I made entirely myself, even drafting the pattern. I didn’t actually know about Lust or Fullmetal Alchemist until someone said that I should do a Cosplay of her ->Frankie XD But I didn’t think there was any point cosplaying a character if you didn’t know who they were, So I watched the original series and read the manga, and I love FMA and the Homunculi! Especially Lust.

The dress and gloves are made entirely of dark green velour fabric. The bust is shaped with a tough interfacing that gives shape when sewn into fabric. So it proved quite handy. The most difficult thing about this costume was the palms of the gloves. I had to remake the gloves a couple of times, and the palms were made of stretched out tights to wrap tightly around my hands. It was damn fiddly, but well worth the time. People first thought I had actually glued the fabric to the top of my hands!

If only I had found you in time for my Scar and Greed cosplays.

Ah well, they're both on standby anyway :3

I saw those, and I really liked them :) Especially the Greed one, I thought it was well made! I would love to cosplay with you, however I need to re-make the cosplay. I've made plans to make it out of black velvet the next time ^^ Like the Brotherhood version.
