A talented cosplayer has lifted Peko Pokoyama straight out of the world of Danganronpa and brought her to life with an incredible representation of the “Ultimate Swordswoman.”

The Danganropa franchise kicked off in 2012 with visual novel Trigger Happy Havoc, and since then has become infamous for its terrifying gameplay and storylines that see players investigate murders, search for clues, and take part in deadly trials as they try to track down who the killer is.


The series has gained a cult following, with many obsessed with the characters found inside these stories, and cosplayer ‘Snailcos’ has become the latest to show off their appreciation, breaking out an incredible version of Peko Pekoyama from Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair.

Incredible Peko Pekoyama cosplay

In the second Danganronpa, Pekoyana is a stern and serious woman, with a keen interest in martial arts and an incredible talent with swords, earning her title thanks to her skill. She’s rarely seen without a bamboo sword slung over her shoulder, ready to be brought out to practice at any moment.


Of course, Snailcos made sure to include this in her incredible cosplay, holding a sword just like Pekoyama’s and posing in her Hope’s Peak Academy uniform, complete with the same school jumper that she wears in the games, and making sure to ditch the blazer, just like the Ultimate Swordswoman does.

Snailcos has made sure even the finest of details are perfect, completing the look with the same red lipstick that the character wears, ribbons in her hair, and the dark-framed glasses that complete Pekoyama’s look.

Even her mannerisms are perfect, making sure not to smile in any pictures, as Peko herself claims she doesn’t know how to smile, forgetting how to because she didn’t think it was necessary to show the emotion as a child.


Snailcos has picked up over 8,000 followers on her Instagram account dedicated to cosplay, showing that we aren’t the only ones who think she perfectly captures the characters she protrays.

She has also dressed up as characters from the Persona franchise, and as Himiko Toga from My Hero Academia.

A Cowboy Bebop cosplayer shared an insanely accurate Faye Valentine costume. The artist teamed up with talented photographers to bring the popular anime to life like you’ve never seen before.

Despite releasing in 1998, Cowboy Bebop is still one of the most popular animes of all time. Viewers fell in love with its fast-paced jazz style, and story about a ragtag group of bounty hunters in space.


Celebrating the influential series, a talented cosplayer transformed into beloved heroine Faye Valentine. Her stunning photography and mind blowing re-creation of the character will be sure to leave fans in awe.

While much of the anime centers on protagonist Spike Spiegel, the bounty hunter picks up several crewmates throughout the story, such as Faye Valentine. The ragtag group travel across space aboard the Bebop spaceship. 


Cosplayer ‘luciolescosplay’ transformed into the purple-haired heroine with a jaw-dropping costume on Instagram. The artist teamed up with photographer ‘micheltakumacosplay’ who helped bring the anime to life with incredible skills. 

Posing in the character’s signature two-piece yellow outfit, the artist mirrored Valentine’s look effortlessly. She even included Faye’s signature red jacket which hangs loosely around the lower half of her arms. 


In another shot, photographer ‘koklengphotographe’ captured the cosplayer recreating a scene from the show. Luciole posed as the bounty hunter holding a drink in front of a bar. The glowing neon sign in the backdrop looks similar to the “Loser Bar” from the series

The French cosplayer gave viewers a full look of her outfit, and showed just how accurate it is to the anime. From her purple cropped hair, to her iconic sunglasses, this is easily one of the best takes we’ve seen on the queen of hearts.


Cowboy Bebop originally made its debut as manga in 1997. However, its anime adaptation a year later by studio Sunrise made it an instant hit around the world.

Those wanting to watch the genre-bending sci-fi romp can catch all episodes on streaming services Funimation, Hulu, and HBO Max.
