|Time Taken :||5 Hours (Approximately)|
|Well obviously I chose to make it because Lust is one of my favourite characters from FMA Brotherhood and in the manga too. She was my first real effort at cosplaying, besides a few stuck on golden rings and a pair of cardboard ears made for Umbreon two years earlier. |
The hardest part was finding a way to get enough cleavage. Unfortunately we didn't get the effect I really wanted but we did the best we could. The easiest part was the Ouroubouros, but thats cos I drew the design on paper and then my dad simply painted it on, but it is one of my favourite parts as well.
It was easy to wear though after a day the shoes really killed so I wore flats the second day. I was extremely self conscious about the amount of cleavage I had showing, I was constantly pulling my dress up and there was a little hole in the back that happened on the first day that I had to be careful of, but other than that it was fine, if a little hard to pick things up with the gloves on.
I left it to the last minute so this year I am really trying to get everything done and sorted ahead of time so I can focus more on organisation. However I was extremely pleased with the end result and whilst it was not entirely accurate it was a success, and a number of people asked for my photo.

Homunculus Tattoo (Posted 3rd June 2010)
Because I hadn't booked a hotel and I was just going to Expo for the Saturday, I decided to head up to MCM in cosplay.
As I( was a boob and didn't test it beforehand, it turned out the red lip-liner I had planned to use for the Ouroboros insignia didn't work. So dad drew it on my collarbone with a biro. Lol. Well it didn't look too bad in the end.
Gloves (Posted 7th May 2010)
Gloves arrived in the post today. To be honest I would've liked them a little longer as they only came up to my elbows. However I don't know how to make gloves yet so I make do with what I've got XD.
We'd gotten some iron on sticky stuff and with the help of my Nan I managed to iron red ribbon strips onto the gloves for the Homunculus symbol thingies. Even though they're a bit short I'm still pretty pleased with how the gloves have turned out.
Lust's Dress (Posted 19th April 2010)
First official cosplay ever! Exciting. I have no idea how to do anything XD. We have bought 2 stretchy boob-tube tops for Lusty and dad has sewn them together to make the dress.
Tried it on for size and its quite fitted but looks pretty good., Although my hair is naturally dark, have died it black instead of opting for a wig, and I'm just going to style it on the day. So far so good!
