The popular anime follows the Kamado siblings after their family is brutally killed by evil creatures. Nezuko survives the attack, but at a cost. The young character is cursed and turned into a demon, which she tries to cure throughout the story.

Bringing her to life, cosplayer Riona ‘rionafae‘ shared her transformation into the heroine on Instagram. Using a picture from the show, the artist mirrored the character to absolute perfection.

Riona captured Nezuko’s flowing black hair, including her locks at the bottom which fade into an orange color. She even mirrored her striking pink eyes – which is the color they changed to after Kamado became a demon.

In a selfie shot, Riona gave viewer a full look at her costume. Her outfit is really faithful to the anime, and includes Nezuko’s iconic pink yukata, flowing black kimono, and red and white checkered waist sash.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the cosplayer also depicted Nezuko’s inner demon bloodlust in another picture on social media. The artist posed with her hands clawed out while biting on her bamboo gag prop, which Kamado uses in the show to stop herself from attacking humans.
