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.

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.

Misaki shared another photo of the two on her Instagram, and gave a full look at the intricate details of their costume, as they faithfully created the Demon Slayers’ outfits.

With stunning photography taken outdoors in Kyoto, Japan, the pair look just like the two popular characters, and received thousands of likes for their amazing submissions.

The cosplay duo are both renowned artists, with Shirogane amassing over 368k followers on her Instagram and Misaki with 50k, as anime fans and gamers are impressed by their faithful recreations of popular characters.

While Demon Slayer’s manga is still ongoing, fans of the anime have to sit tight as the first season just wrapped up as we await for the next step in the addicting story.

Those that want to see what all the talk is about can watch the entire show on streaming service Crunchyroll, or catch the English dub which is currently airing on Adult Swim.

While readers of the manga have long known about the character, Shimura made her first technical appearance in Season 2 of the anime as a silhouette. Viewers got their first true look at All Might’s mentor in the third arc.

Prolific cosplayer ‘penberly’ went viral on Instagram after truly bringing the character to life with her insanely accurate costume. Photographer ‘maze_studio’ captured the artist posing in the heroine’s signature black bodysuit.

Penberly nailed every aspect of the protagonist’s outfit, from her massive yellow gloves to the gold chain that runs across her chest to connect each side of the cloak.
