A talented cosplay duo shared their jaw-dropping take on Demon Slayer’s Mitsuri Kanroji and Shinobu Kocho that will wow fans with the true-to-life costumes.
Without a doubt, the breakout anime of 2019 goes to Demon Slayer. Based on the 2016 manga, the adaptation by Studio Ufotable that debuted last year has exploded in popularity.
So much so, that a cosplay duo on Instagram shared their incredible Mitsuri and Shinobu costumes, bringing the Insect and Love Pillars to life with their accurate portrayal.
Cosplay duo brings Demon Slayer to life
In the anime we are introduced to the “Pillars” who are the most devastating fighters in the Demon Slayer Corps. The powerful swordsmen each possess a mark that they can unleash on their enemies.
Cosplay duo ‘shirogane_sama‘ and Misaki Sai ‘saiwestwood‘ shared their incredibly accurate outfits of the Love Pillar Mitsuri and the Insect Pillar Shinobu, and look as if they stepped out of the anime itself.
The two artists perfectly nailed the look of the two warriors, capturing the anime’s style by recreating Mitsuri’s large pink and green hair that spirals down, and Shinobu’s black and purple hairdo which she wears up in a bun with a butterfly on top.
