A fantastic cosplayer on Instagram has done an incredible job of recreating the character Junko from popular visual novel franchise Danganronpa, with fans of the original character stunned by her accuracy.

Since the first installment of the franchise was released in 2010, Danganronpa has become a huge cult classic, securing many fans around the globe. The series is in visual novel format, and follows the lives of students at terrifying high schools, where their only way to graduate is to kill a fellow student and get away with it.

The game has certainly sent chills up spines of its players, but in a way that just makes people want to continue playing. Also contributing to its success is its huge and diverse range of characters, who each boast their own brilliant costume design, along with addictive personalities that make the game even more fun to play.

Junko Enoshima is dubbed the ‘Ultimate Fashionista’ and is a character from the first installment of the series, Trigger Happy Havoc. While Junko initially appears charismatic, as the dark story progresses players are introduced to a very different, darker side of the character, leaving fans loving her all the more.

Cosplayer mata_cos was keen to put her twist on the hugely popular character, and it’s safe to say that she did an immaculate job at transforming into the Ultimate Fashionista.

Her very recognisable hair is pulled up into two huge and voluminous pigtails on either side of her head, tinged a very light pink which gives her that candyfloss look, matching her supposed personality at the start of the game. This is of course along with the twin bear hair clips that match up with the original.

The sharp eyeliner is surrounded in a saturated hue of darker pink, tying in with the rest of the look perfectly. Her black and white uniform is a perfect recreation, with the red bow tie on one side finishing off the look.

Fans of the character absolutely loved this look, saying that mata_cos’s take on Junko was “one of the most canon Junkos I’ve seen,” and saying she’s “such an iconic Junko.”

The response to the cosplay was great, with fans seeing how much hard work went into recreating this iconic character, followers certainly looking forward to more great recreations from mata_cos.

A Dragon Ball cosplayer captured the spirit of the original chapter 4 manga cover featuring Bulma with a brilliant outfit.

Throughout the series, the character of Bulma has changed drastically going from the somewhat edgy-looking teen early on to a respectable scientist by the time we reach Z and eventually Vegeta’s wife.

However, one of her most classic looks comes in the form of the cover art for manga chapter 4/Volume 10 with her wild rider attire and stunning gun-wielding pose.

Cosplayer Jessica Heeren managed to nail the iconic look and took to Reddit to show off the outfit and got a lot of compliments from fans of Dragon Ball.

“That looks great! I love your attention to detail, and how bright and happy it came out! really carries the energy of the series and character,” one user noted.

As you can see, the cosplay was able to completely recreate everything from the manga. Her right pant leg is completely bare, exposed instead with a bandaged kneecap. The gloves are mixed and matched with one longer than the other.

Even the hair, which is often times very difficult to get just right, amazed some users on Reddit.

“Nice job on the hair, I always find that people mess up the color but it looks really natural and not out of place here,” one fan remarked.

“Thank you. It was a higher quality lace front wig, which I had cut professionally by a hairdresser. Then styled it myself. I am always very picky on getting the right wigs,” Heeren replied.

According to the cosplayer, when ended up scouring eBay for nights on end searching for the exact wig for this particular outfit.

The Dragon Ball series has been going on since the 1980s and has no sign of stopping any time soon with the Super manga. Hopefully, the series can continue to change up Bulma’s look so Jessica Heeren can keep banging out these amazing cosplays.
