A talented Darling in the Franxx fan has brought the anime’s main character to life in stunning detail, showing off a perfect recreation of heroine Zero Two.

Darling in the Franxx made its worldwide debut back in 2018 as a joint collaboration between Clover Works and Studio Trigger, and immediately became a smash hit with viewers across the globe.


The show features an intense post-apocalyptic story about the human race defending themselves in their final stand against giant monsters known as klaxosaurs, using giant mechs to give themselves a fighting chance against the beasts that are wiping out the remaining human population.

Zero Two is the deuteragonist of sci-fi anime series Darling in the Franxx, and was designed as the show’s mascot character.

Living in cities known as ‘plantations,’ humanity makes a last-gasp attempt to fight against the klaxosaurs by artificially creating children known as parasites, with the sole purpose of controlling the massive mechs known as Franxx in the war to wipe the creatures out for good. While there are many skilled pilots, perhaps none are as talented as Zero Two, with Instagram user ‘dafnebelleduque‘ showing off her love for the character with an awesome cosplay.


Zero Two has two recognizable outfits of her own, but Cristina has decided against recreating her military dress uniform, choosing instead to show the character in her iconic pistil suit, a bright red bodysuit with white accents running across her torso and legs.

Of course, no Zero Two cosplay is complete without her patented pink hair, and Cristina made sure to include the small red horns that are perched on top of her head, a constant reminder that she is part-klaxosaur.

The anime was well received by both Japanese and European audiences, although some felt that the final battle between the humans and the alien species known as VIRM was a little rushed.


There are currently no plans for a second series of Darling in the Franxx, so fans of the anime will have to make do with the manga for the time being.

Demon Slayer cosplayer brings Nezuko in a box to life

Early on in the story, Nezuko Kamado is turned into a demon after surviving a brutal attack from a creature. A part of her new powers is the ability to shrink her body. To avoid being seen, the heroine travels in a box that is carried by her brother.


Cosplayer ‘aru.rinh’ went viral on Instagram after bringing the iconic plot point to real life. Photographer ‘muze‘ captured Zekia sitting in a box strapped to the back of an artist portraying her sibling, Tanjiro.

Adorably, her legs hang out of the wooden container as she sits snugly in the box. In the picture’s caption, she explained, “yes i do fit all the way into the box.”

In another shot posted to social media, aru.rinh gave viewers a full look at how detailed her costume really is. She faithfully created Nezuko’s signature pink yukata, including the red and white checkered sash around her waist. Zekia even included the character’s large leg wraps that go into her sandals.


The cosplayer also posed in an up-close portrait photo, and shows off how faithful her look is to the anime. In the series, the Kamado sibling’s eyes turn bright pink after being turned into a demon, which aru.rinh nailed effortlessly as her curly black hair falls on her shoulders.

Demon Slayer originally made its debut in 2016 as a manga, however found worldwide acclaim after being adapted into an anime by studio Ufotable.

After a year of waiting, the series finally makes its return in the form of the theatrical film Mugen Train. For everything we know about the project, check out our guide here.
