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 Resident Evil Village cosplayer shared her mind-blowing true-to-life take on Alcina Dimitrescu. The talented artist brought the viral tall vampire lady to life with an insanely accurate costume.

Ever since her reveal in January 2021, the internet can’t get enough of the “tall vampire lady” that starred in Resident Evil Village’s trailer. Despite being the villain of the upcoming PlayStation 5 title, fans can’t get enough of the towering antagonist.

A cosplayer celebrated Alcina Dimitrescu by transforming into her with an incredibly detailed outfit. The artist’s perfect recreation is so accurate, it’s almost as if the terrifying character has walked right out of the screen and into real life.

Resident Evil cosplayer becomes tall vampire lady

Alcina’s explosion in popularity not only took many players by surprise, but Capcom itself was caught off guard by the internet’s obsession over the new villain. I mean, what’s not to love? The incredibly fierce antagonist has a unique design and looks badass the first time her towering height is revealed.

Prolific cosplayer Galina ‘rgtcandy‘ Zhukovskaya made waves on Instagram after sharing her faithful costume of the vampire on February 15. The artist perfectly recreated the antagonist’s iconic white silk pleated dress, as well as her signature large hat which hangs over her eyes.

Photographer Victoria ‘milliganvick‘ not only captured Galina as she posed as Dimitrescu but also helped the artist mirror Alcina’s look by meticulously applying makeup. This is easily one of the best portrayals of the tall vampire lady we have ever seen and it will be sure to capture fans’ hearts.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the talented duo also portrayed an iconic scene from the demo where Alcina emerges from a locked door and grabs Ethan. The 1:1 re-creation is chilling to say the least, as it brings the game to life like never before.

Resident Evil Village will make its debut on next-gen consoles and PC on May 7, 2021. The new entry in the popular survival-horror franchise will be the eighth in the series and will continue the design of 7 by using a first-person point of view.

While fans can’t seem to get enough of vampire Alcina Dimitrescu right now, it may be a different tune once the terrifying villain is chasing players down during the title’s epic story. One thing is for certain, though – the towering antagonist is already an icon in the genre.
