Everything's pretty much been said, however, you might consider a corset or some other body shaper. Lust is pretty curvy. Also, the gloves go up to the armpits, not just above the elbow. Your gloves however, are awesome, I love the detail work. Hopefully you can just extend them. ^_^ Try a darker lipstick as well. Black lips probably wouldn't look that great, but perhaps a dark red/burgandy/mahogany type color. Definitely used some eyeshadow, though don't cake it on ^^

And I think that's it ^_^ Good luck! And I'm sure you're going to look awesome

I think that a really good wig for this cos/crossplay would be the Alisa from Amphigory.com (http://amphigory.com/wigs_alisa.html). I got a couple of these for other cosplays, but when I pulled the first one out of the package, I thought it would work very well for Lust.

That wig is waaaaaaay better, it looks very natural. I don't have much advice other than, smile next time. Maybe not a big smile but just a little coy smile like lust would do.

Definitely a huge improvement. n_n Last but not least, remember when you're taking pictures that angle has a lot to do with how flattering your picture will end up. Standing at a 45 degree angle will make your waist look smaller and you'll have more of an hourglass figure - look at most celebrity shots on the red carpet for some posing advice. =)

I'd say a smirk would fit Lust's character more .

I'm coming into this thread a bit late, but you've made a tremendous improvement just from getting that wig. Just cut the bangs into it and make sure to hairpsray the length into place behind your shoulders, and you'll be all set!

Your dress looks a lot better as well. The only problems I can point out for it is there's a slit in the middle of the top, though you might not want to do that in case your padding shows; also the sleeves are supposed to be attached to the dress, or at least go up higher on your arm. And for the red detail, I think there's only supposed to be one line down the middle. Other than those details, it's overall a pretty good crossplay, especially for Lust.

Big improvement, especially with the new wig.
It looks very nice...very Lust-y.

At this point I'll just be picking on details, you've managed to clean up the major issues. The pose is perfect, the whole, over the shoulder smirk is very Lust. I'm still not feeling the makeup though. It looks natural enough by itself, but against your normal skintone your face looks washed out and lost. If you can't go the route of lightening up everything that is showing, you should probably just try a more natural color that matches your everyday skintone.

A suggestion for your lipstick, if you're feeling adventurous, you could try re-shaping your lips in a "cupid's bow" shape for a more buxom pout. ( This is my personal opinion, since I love the old fashioned bombshell babes and the sexy lipstick. Yum! )
This tutorial is a great basic instructional on lip lining and shaping. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fNnehlYSlQ

One last thing, keep that gorgeous wig from tangling by using a spray like Motions on it and allowing it to dry. This way it'll always be beautiful and nicely kept for as long as you cosplay!

But like I said, it's all just little stuff at this point. ^^
I like what you've done so far, and the fact that you've made improvements is really impressive.

Yeah, I was thinking about changing the foundation as I cant get my upper chest/upper arm area to match.

i would invest in a corset (unless you already have one of course) and larger fake boobs. as has been stated, she is very curvy and the curves are a large part of her being lustful. more, darker, and smokier eyeshadow is needed, and a deep, brownish red lipstick. the wig is better but if it is possible for you to put some waves in it i think it would work a lot more.

Yeah I already have a corset underneath. I think it's because it's a side-on pose you can't see the curvature that well.
