Costumer Kara Hook appears at the recent Kitacon attired as the Homonculus Lust, a femme fatale from Fullmetal Alchemist. Most cosplayers plump for the protagonists Edward and Alphonse, with alchemists themselves another popular choice thanks to their rather dapper uniforms. But Kara has gone for the bad-girl look. “From the moment I saw FMA it had to be Lust,” she explains. “She’s cool, cold-hearted, beautiful and strong. Everything I aspire to be.”
