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.”
