A talented cosplayer shared her true-to-life take on Demon Slayer’s Nezuko Kamado, transforming into the popular anime character with her stunning photography.
Demon Slayer became the breakout anime hit of 2019, as millions of viewers were riveted by the series’ dark story about a boy seeking to avenge his family after they are slaughtered by demons.
A popular cosplayer shared an insanely accurate take on Nezuko, bringing the cursed sister to the real world with a costume that’s sure to give fans goosebumps.
One of the more tragic elements of the show’s story is protagonist Tanjiro Kamada’s quest to cure his sister Nezuko from a curse that turned her into a demon.
Popular cosplayer ‘purrblind‘ recreated her with an incredibly detailed portrayal of the tragic character, as she mimicked the look with her pink and black patterned Kimono, and piercing eyes.
