Demon Slayer fans are sure be wowed by a talented cosplayer’s stunning take on Shinobu Kocho, as she brings the Insect Pillar to life with some breathtaking photography.
One of the breakout animes of 2019 was Demon Slayer, as its dark story about a teenager’s journey to avenge his family who are slayed by demons kept viewers on the edge of their seats.
A talented cosplayer brought one of the series’ most beloved characters to life, the Insect Pillar Shinobu, with an insanely detailed outfit.
Demon Slayer’s Shinobu brought to life
In show’s plot, protagonist Tanjiro Kamado joins Demon Slayer Corps which is led by the Pillars – the strongest swordsmen in the organization – with Shinobu being one of them.
Cosplayer Swifty Amaterasu shared her jaw-dropping costume on social media, which was so accurate it looked as if the character had jumped right out of the anime itself.
Collaborating with photographer ‘ziggityzoopity,’ the talented artist struck a pose from the show, and using special effects transformed into the character as a butterfly rests on her finger.

The cosplayer shared more photos of her costume on Instagram that gives fans a full view of the intricate detail that went into re-creating the anime character’s signature look.
Swifty perfectly replicated Shinobu’s white kimono, even adding a touch of blue and pink to her sleeves, while also faithfully capturing her parted black and purple hair.
The artist’s insanely accurate outfit mixed with the stunning photography taken outdoors makes for one of the best Demon Slayer cosplays we’ve seen to date.
Demon Slayer originally debuted as a manga in 2016, but exploded into worldwide popularity with its anime adaptation in 2019 by Studio Ufotable.
Fans eagerly anticipate the sequel film set to be released in 2020, but for those that haven’t seen the show, you can watch the first season in its entirety on Crunchyroll or Funimation.
