As Halloween draws closer, cosplayers are getting into the spirit by dressing up as some of the classic horror characters from history and Pennywise from Stephen Kingโ€™s It is perfect for the occasion.

Cosplayer Bloodraven decided to show off her take on the demonic clown in a series of images taken at a photoshoot.

If you didnโ€™t know better, the cosplay would look like it was ripped right from the movie considering how impressive it is.

All of the iconic characterโ€™s facial traits are present with some minor adjustments to fit Bloodravenโ€™s female figure.

The red nose and lines over the mouth to the cheekbones remain intact, but instead of a nasty hairdo, Bloodraven decided her take would be more feminine.

To pull this off, she added some bows in her hair while still matching the villainโ€™s bright orange style.

Moving onto her attire, the dress remains consistent with some minor tweaks to make it her own. Thereโ€™s a bit more pink to the ensemble that make it stand out.

Overall, itโ€™s a frightening take on Pennywise and a compelling case that the character could be female in a future reboot.

Aside from the clown, Bloodraven has also cosplayed as many characters from anime, movies, games and more.

Her works include Midnight from My Hero Academia, Mary Saotome from Kakegurui, Death Noteโ€™s Misa Amane, and Overwatchโ€™s DPS hero Ashe to name a few.

A Demon Slayer cosplayer went viral on Instagram after sharing her true-to-life take on Mitsuri Kanroji. The artist’s stunning transformation into the Love Pillar will leave fans of the hit anime in awe.

Demon Slayer’s debut in 2019 was explosive as the series has quickly become a worldwide phenomena. The anime is so popular that its first theatrical film Mugen Train is on track to becoming the highest-grossing movie of all time in Japan.

A talented cosplayer celebrated the beloved story by bringing popular character Mitsuri Kanroji to life. The artist’s insanely accurate portrayal of the fierce heroine made waves on Instagram due to how much she looks like the fierce warrior.

Mitsuri Kanroji is one of the popular characters of the hit 2019 anime.

Demon Slayer cosplayer’s real life Love Pillar

While the dark anime largely centers on the Kamado siblings, the last half of Season 1 heavily focuses on the fierce warriors of the Demon Slayer corps. These strong swordsman are called Pillars, and they are able to control their breath and unleash incredible powers against their foes.

Cosplayer Melodi Kฤฑzฤฑlguฬˆn went viral after bringing the Love Pillar Mitsuri to life with a jaw-dropping costume. The artist accurately depicted the character’s black and white Demon Slayer corps uniform, while faithfully mirroring her striking pink and green braided hair.

Photographer ‘toyfromearth’ captured Melodi posing with the heroine’s iconic katana, which has a blue hilt and pink hearts underneath the fabric. Recreating a scene from the show, she readies to slay demons with an incredibly detailed prop of Kanroji’s deadly weapon.

Despite only being uploaded on November 22, the social media post already collected over 8.8k likes at the time of writing. Her gorgeous portrayal of the heroine made massive waves in just under 24 hours.

Demon Slayer originally made its debut in 2016 as a manga written by renowned Japanese writer Koyoharu Gotog. However, it exploded in popularity after studio Ufotable released its anime adaptation.

While there is currently no update on the show’s return, the movie Mugen Train is out now. The feature length picture bridges the gap between Season 1 and 2.
