To celebrate the series upcoming fourth and final season, popular cosplayer ‘Shirogane Sama’ shared her mind blowing costume of lead character Mikasa Ackerman. She looks so much like her, it’s almost as if the anime heroine has slashed her way out of the screen.

In two other shots posted to Twitter, the cosplayer wore Mikasa’s green cloak over her uniform, which she gets after joining the Survey Corps. She also faithfully captured her short brown bob haircut, using a wig by ‘holish_cosplay‘.

Her outfit is full of details, such as the accurate scars on her face which the character receives after battling Titans. Shirogane also holds a prop blade, which the heroine uses in the story to slice the necks of the giant creatures.

Attack on Titan originally made its 2009 debut as a manga, although its anime adaptation years later made it a worldwide phenomena. After three seasons, the popular show is ending with its fourth arc.
