A talented cosplayer has created a perfect version of the chilling Junko Enoshima from the Danganronpa visual novel series, bringing the character to life with her incredible take.
The Danganronpa series has become a cult classic ever since the release of Trigger Happy Hacov, following the story of students at top schools who are tasked with killing another member of their class without getting caught. Players are tasked with taking part in deadly trials, searching for clues, and eventually finding out who the killer is.
The series has gripped many who have played it thanks to the interesting characters, and the frightening yet immersive world in which it is set, so its no surprise that many have started to cosplay as their favorite students from the series, and cosplayer ‘uzileks’ has become the latest to unveil a stunning recreation of Junko Enoshima, who appeared in the first Danganronpa.
Enoshima plays a major role in Trigger Happy Havoc, as the Ultimate Fashionista from Hope’s Peak Academy, and while she appears to be carefree and happy, her true demeanor is much more sinister, easily bored and apathetic, causing her behavior to become menacing and erratic as the story unfolds, eventually becoming clear that she loves to bring despair wherever she goes as it’s the only emotion she truly feels and enjoys.
Junko‘s standout feature is clearly her hair, which is bright pink in color and sits out in two massive ponytails either side of her head. Her long locks are held in place by to Monokuma hair clips, one white with a cute, happy face, and a black one with evil red eyes and teeth bared, perhaps used to illustrate the two different sides of the character.
Uzileks has also created a near-perfect version of her uniform, complete with a black cardigan over a white dress shirt, a white scarf tied loosely around her neck, and a red bow on her left side which is identical to Junko’s placement, although hard to spot thanks to her massive ponytails.
Fans of the series were clearly delighted with her take on the character, with some saying that although it’s a hard character to pull off, “she definitely did,” while others complimented her pink wig which she had styled to look like the character.
This Junko Enoshima is definitely one of the best we’ve ever seen, and captures the spirit of the character perfectly.
