Ever since her debut in 2018, Zero Two has become a massive hit with viewers. The enigmatic protagonist is not only a standout in Darling in the Franxx, she has also become an anime icon.


Cosplayer Ayuu ‘ayuu_cosplay‘ celebrated the heroine by bringing her to life with their mind-blowing costume. In a series of posts on their Instagram, the artist posed for photographer ‘jakubmlecki.photo‘ while wearing the character’s iconic red and white bodysuit.

Unlike many cosplays of the character, Ayuu’s outfit is made of a latex-like material similar to the show. Even the signature white headband’s design is faithful to the series,m and includes two horns piercing through it.
