View Full Version : Oh noes! Another FMA question! (Need some Lust help...)

As the title said, "Oh no!". Yes. This is another FMA thread. BUT, it's not a Roy or Edo post. It's a Lust post. And I am only posting this as a result of not finding anything when I looked a few pages back into the forum. So! I have a few questions.

First off!!!
If I do end up cosplaying as Lust, I have every intention of wearing this out fit to school on Halloween. And, as most of you know, Lust is a little....shall we say, unsuited for a school enviornment. So, I was thinking, though it'll only be for school, seeing as how it's not accurate, and I'm a perfectionist, I was thinking of putting something like body stockings on underneath. There's a few things I'm not sure about for it.
One, depending on the stocking, would it look totally horrible? I haven't decided what style I want just yet, but I know I want it to be pretty plain. What do you guys think?
Here's a page for the type of stockings I was thinking of. WARNING. THERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF NUDITY ON THIS SITE. It is a lingerie site after all.
I'm warming up to that style a lot, and it's probably what I'll be using.

My next question is, would it work with a corset, which I'd plan on putting on over it? Would it make the corset slide and make me more voulnerable to clothing malfunctions?

And the last question.

I want to make Lust's claw things so I can wear them when I take pictures. But I'd like to make them removable so they're not a pain when I'm walking around at a convention and that I'd be able to wear it at school. (All my costumes won't work for school in one way or another! Jeebus!) So, I was wondering if anyone could give me a little input on how to make the claws, sense I don't have any idea how I'd do that. At all.

As far as school goes, I think they would be more concerned with the top (not having straps etc) than the bottom, because her dress isnt short. I'd say that if you plan to wear it to school, wear a tank top/leotard/something underneath. You could get a flesh colored leotard from a dancewear store/website and it wont be as obvious.

As for the claws, I think that most people attach them to the glove in some way... I don't know exactly because I personally cosplay Winry, but from what I've seen at cons, they were attached to the glove.

Basically what Jen said is true. I'd say edit it to add straps on. You could also do billowy sort-of side sleeves. (IE Subaru-.hack//sign) If you are doing Lust, remember the oroborous. Can't be a homunculous without it.

Thanks! :3

And yes. The top part of it was what I was more concerned about. Which was why I'd thought I'd use that body suit. Because it would reach up over the top and hide my cleavage a little bit. My school isn't worried about the straps as much as it is about the cleavage. There's actually a rule about it.

But a dance thing might work too. :3

Oh! Or a black tube top. :3
