2019 was a big year for anime, as breakout shows like Demon Slayer captured the minds of viewers across the world. The series’ gripping story about a boy’s quest to avenge his family after they are slaughtered by demons connected with millions.

A skilled cosplayer brought the protagonist’s sister Nezuko Kamado to life with an insanely detailed costume. Fans were in awe of the artist’s accurate depiction of the demon-turned character.

In the story, Nezuko and Tanjiro are the only surviving members of the Kamado family after they are murdered by evil. However the anime heroine is cursed and turned into a demon herself. Throughout the series, she struggles to retain her humanity.

Cosplayer ‘astarohime’ dressed up as the protagonist’s sister, and shared her true-to-life costume on social media. Photographer ‘islen_ph‘ captured the artist posing outdoors in the snowy woods.

The gorgeous re-creation could have been a scene directly out of the anime, as the skilled artist creatively depicted Nezuko’s struggle to contain her demonic blood-lust.

She also teamed up with fellow cosplayer ‘cheshire_fox‘ who portrayed Tanjiro, as the two brought the sibling duo to life. The adorable picture shows the brother and sister promising to stick together to the very end.

Astaro shared more pictures of her incredible cosplay, and posted a close-up shot of her as Kamado. In the story, the heroine’s red eyes turn pink after being transformed into a demon – which she nailed. She also perfectly created the character’s signature pink kimono and its geometrical patterns.

Bleach cosplays are all the rage these days, especially with the anime picking up where it left once again, but one cosplayer has generated a lot of buzz on social media with a fierce but adorable Nelliel Tu cosplay.

Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck, better known as Nel, is one of the more eccentric characters in bleach. She’s first introduced as an adorable but quirky Arrancar child with hazel eyes and green hair.

Initially, she believes Soul Reapers are evil and the sworn-enemies of her kind. However, she quickly becomes attached to Ichigo Kurosaki and follows him around in his quest to find Las Noches.

Eventually, she returns to her true adult form with a curvaceous figure and long waving hair. It was a surprise that many fans didn’t expect. It made her more cool, calm, collected, and intelligent, and also made her immensely more powerful.

However, in spite of all that, she still retained her child-like affection and innocence. The unexpected transformation into an adult made her one of the most interesting characters on the show.

The unexpected moment Nelliel Tu transformed from a child to an adult.

A cosplayer named Julianne Darlen has taken her adoration of Nelliel Tu to the next level. She rocked an amazing outfit that captured the moment Nelliel Tu transforms from a child into an adult.

The green robe she was wearing tore and contoured to her shapely complexion. Her hair green grows longer as well, although the half a skull on her head remains in-tact. Julianne Darlen re-created it to perfection.

The level of detail in the skull is incredible. It’s almost an exact match to the one in the show. The shape and eyes are spot on and it even has the same fracture. The shades of green in her hair and in the outfit couldn’t be more perfect either.

The red make-up smeared across her face as well resembles Nelliel Tu’s scar. It seems like Julianne Darlen hasn’t missed a thing, including a change of mood and expression in each picture.

All in all, it was an incredible piece and one that has already drawn a lot of attention on social media.
