A talented cosplayer has pulled the hugely popular anime Attack on Titan from screen to real life, by skillfully imitating the character of Hanji through their detailed costume and makeup skills.

Attack on Titan is a dark fantasy action anime set in a world where humanity confines themselves within huge walls to protect them from the Titans: huge, people-eating, human-like figures that stalk the world looking for prey.

Little is known about Hanji’s backstory compared to other characters of their series, which is ironic given their role as a researcher of the group. Their eccentric personality is contrasted with the mystery of their past, and this cosplayer captures that mystery perfectly.

Glocckforall’s outfit matches Hanji’s down to the finest details, the khaki utility-style jacket overlaid with a draping green hooded cloak setting the foundation for the character. The emblem patches sewn onto the jacket are placed exactly, with the detail even going down to the belt tied around their chest.

Their dark brown wavy ponytail and further pieces of hair framing the face mimic the classic style of hair in anime, but also has a realistic edge that softens the look and makes its transition to real life smooth.

The makeup is the most impressive part of the whole cosplay, most noticeable is of course the white eye contact lens and red scarring to match Hanji’s bad eye injury, with the glasses and eye patch exactly emulating the original shape.

It seems as though fans of the show are loving it too, the post at over 5000 likes at the time of writing, one commenter even calling the recreation “the most beautiful Hanji cosplay I’ve ever seen.”

A Demon Slayer cosplayer has metamorphosed into Shinobu Kochu and spread her wings in an elegant and well-detailed outfit that looks as real as it gets.

Shinobu Kocho is one of the standout characters in Demon Slayer. On the surface, she seems like a small, gentle, and soft-spoken angel with a calm and composed demeanor. But don’t let her size and appearance fool you. Shinobu Kocho is an incredibly powerful Demon Slayer.

Beneath her skin is an immense and burning hatred towards demons, one which almost consumed her in the past. It started when she lost her beloved sister to the demons and sought revenge on them ever since.

It’s the reason Shinobu Kocho became a Demon Slayer in the first place.

Shinobu Kocho is a powerful, quick, and deadly swordsman. However, she’s also a medical expert and a master in pharmacology. To make matters worse for her opponents, she coats her weapon with poison and can perform ‘Insect Breathing.’

It’s easy to see why she’s a fan-favorite among Demon Slayer cosplayers. But although there are many amazing Shinobu Kocho cosplays, a Russian cosplayer named dabllmi has taken it to a whole new level.

There’s an incredible amount of detail in her cosplay. It permeates everything from her kimono, hair, and sandals to the sword itself. The shades and patterns are all on-point, and it really looks like Shinobu Kocho herself has come to life.
