A duo of Attack on Titan cosplayers perfectly captured the friendship of series heroes Eren Yeager and Mikasa Ackerman with some well-crafted outfits seemingly ripped right from the anime.

Eren was portrayed by cosplayer ‘Yasucchan,’ while ‘ele_ne.cos’ dressed as Mikasa.

The Mikasa cosplay, in particular, nailed the character’s hair, which sharply pierces down the middle of her face. Hair can be a challenge to get right with cosplay, so matching the character’s look was impressive.

Next, Ackerman’s signature scarf and the rest of her attire was nicely recreated to give no doubts who ele_ne.cos was dressed as.

Meanwhile, Yasucchan’s take on Eren Yeager matches the protagonist’s attire with brown trousers, lean look and even managed to make his collar’s strings stand out.

Yasucchan’s Instagram profile indicates that she had been cosplaying since 2016, so she’s had a few years to perfect her craft and nail the intricacies of what goes into a successful cosplay.

In the anime, Eren and Mikasa are childhood friends who join the Survey Corps to fight against Titans. Later in the story, Eren gains the ability to transform into the Attack Titan and uses his newfound power in combat.

Aside from Eren, Yasucchan has also cosplayed as My Hero Academia’s Shoto Todoroki and a villain version of Deku.

On the other hand, ele_ne.cos has dressed as One Piece’s Luffy, Touka Kirishima from Tokyo Ghoul and more.

With the fourth and final season of the Attack on Titan TV series coming in fall 2020, there’s no telling what the cosplayers will come up with to celebrate the occasion – but if it’s anything like what they pulled off with Eren and Mikasa, fans should be in for quite a treat.

A talented cosplayer made waves online after they brought Neon Genesis Evangelion’s lead heroine, Asuka Langley, to life with an insanely accurate costume. 

Perhaps one of the most influential animes of all time, Neon Genesis Evangelion made its debut in 1996. The Studio Gainax Mecha series was adapted from a manga written by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto.

A talented cosplayer celebrated the animation, by transforming into the show’s lead heroine Asuka Langley. The artist looks so much like the beloved pilot, it’s almost as if she’s flown out of the screen.

The show takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where humans have to fight off large creatures called Angels. To combat the monsters, characters like Asuka connect their nervous system to bio-mechs called Evangelions.

Cosplayer ‘himee.lily’ went viral on social media after sharing her true-to-life take on the heroine. Photographer ‘niniel.things‘ captured the Italian-based artist posing as Langley in her iconic red pilot uniform.

Himee’s costume brought Asuka’s bodysuit to life, and it is full of accurate detail. Not only does it have the green light that runs across her neckline, it also has the number two written above her chest which identifies her as the “Second Child” of Unit-02.

The cosplayer also nailed the heroine’s signature look, faithfully mirroring her auburn hair which is tied up into twin ponytails that run down her back. The shot could easily be mistaken from a scene from the show, as the artist also captures Langley’s mannerisms by recreating her pose and facial expressions from the anime.

Evangelion originally made its debut as a manga, before being adapted into a TV show. The original story was meant to be a companion piece to the anime series which released a year later under the creator’s own studio.

The groundbreaking Mecha story celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2020. Despite coming out decades ago, the franchise is still as popular as it’s ever been and continues to be a fan-favorite in the cosplay community.
