Yet again, the past month has seen countless cosplayers flawlessly recreate some of the most iconic anime characters — here are five of the best recreations from July, featuring shows like Demon Slayer, One Piece, and more.

With the huge array of vibrant and iconic characters that have come from the anime universe, it’s no wonder that so many cosplayers have had a go at recreating them, channeling inspiration from some topical shows, along with old favorites.

In the weird and wonderful world of anime, anything is possible, and that means that cosplayers have to get creative when emulating the intricate costumes originally portrayed in the classic anime art style.


But it’s safe to say that cosplayers have been doing a fantastic job of replicating these characters, pulling them off the screen into real-life, and we’ve selected some of our favorites from the past month.

Jujutsu Kaisen: Mahito — Xxerxes

Ever since its release in 2020, Jujutsu Kaisen has been enormously popular not only among fans, but cosplayers.

Xxerxes was one talented creator to take on the challenge of recreating cold-blooded villain Mahito, and she’s done an incredible job with her amazing take on the unregistered Special Grade Cursed Spirit.

From the hair, to the scars, makeup and more, this cosplayer has Mahito down to a T, and with the presence of one of Sukuna’s’ fingers, this cosplay has it all.

“I’m keen on bad characters,” Xxerxes explained, and that certainly shines through in this recreation, with her pose and facial expression breathing life into the character.

Fans absolutely loved the cosplay, and those who love Jujutsu Kaisen are in luck, as Xxerxes says she’s planning on recreating Maki Zenin in the future, which if this cosplay is anything to go by will no doubt be amazing.

One Piece: Nico Robin — CarryKey

Although recently the spotlight has been occupied by some of the newer animes to break onto the scene, that doesn’t mean that there’s no room left for the classics. One Piece premiered back in 1999, and has been hugely popular since then.


Cosplayer CarryKey took on the challenge of recreating antagonist Nico Robin, who is often a popular choice among cosplayers.

The costume by mastercosplay555 is absolutely stunning, the vibrant colors captured in the crop top and sarong, making her look just like the character with her long black hair.

She even added another set of photos in which extra arms have been added for that duplicate effect, which is the perfect finishing touch to this already amazing cosplay.

Naturally, fans fell in love with this cosplay, fitting in perfectly with the rest of the fantastic work she’s done previously.

Demon Slayer: Nezuko Kamado — xxkyu16

Premiering in 2019, Demon Slayer has become a fast favorite among anime fans, and is yet another huge source of inspiration for cosplayers thanks to the show’s stunning visuals.


Cosplayer Ryo a.k.a. xxkyu16 decided she would recreate one of the lead characters, Nezuko Kamado, and she’s certainly done a brilliant job of it, bringing the animation off the screen and into real life.

Explaining why she chose that particular character, Ryo said: ​​“I get mistaken for a few years younger my actual age pretty often and when I saw Nezuko, I thought she was perfect! She was absolutely adorable. She’s so precious!”


With plans to recreate characters from Genshin Impact, Naruto, and more, fans of Ryo’s work have plenty to look forward to.

The cosplay community has dazzled fans with their incredible work over the last month, taking some of the most iconic characters to new levels, and thoroughly impressing anime fans across the internet.
