A skilled cosplayer turned Junko Enoshima from the Danganronpa games into a true-to-life representation of the spine-chilling character – something that’s bound to give fans nightmares.

The Danganronpa series is infamous for its downright terrifying gameplay that sees players investigate murders, solve clues, and participate in deadly trials to find the culprit.

Since the first game’s release on the PlayStation Portable in 2010, the series has amassed a cult following, as well as two sequel titles and a spinoff.

In the first Danganronpa, Junko plays a pivotal role in the game’s unnerving storyline. Cosplay artist Daracosplay managed to capture her menacing spirit perfect with her take, made even better by Adam Krvekoski’s flawless photography.

One of the character’s standout features is her hair – two giant ponytails that sit on either side of her head. Dara nails this effortlessly, and pulls it together with two Monokuma hair clips for the perfect look.

Styling wigs takes effort and patience at the best of times, so this wig is nothing short of impressive, especially since it mimics Junko’s hair impeccably.

Monokuma is the game’s murderous bear mascot, and continuously terrorizes the characters who are tasked with finding the culprits to several gruesome killings.

In another shot, not only does the cosplayer sport the bear in her hair, she also clutches a plush of the menacing animal, truly bringing the meaning behind Ultimate Despair to life.

It’s one of the best game-to-life recreations we’ve ever seen, but its terrifying nature is sure to give anyone bad dreams.

Dara has accumulated over 6,300 followers on her cosplay Instagram account at this time of writing, proving that we’re not the only ones who dig her stuff.

Not only has she created costumes from Danganronpa, the artist has also dressed up as characters from Teen Titans, Persona 5, and My Hero Academia.
