Shinobu Kochu has been a popular choice among Demon Slayer cosplayers for a long time now, but it’s hard to find one that looks more striking than Trinity’s illustrious take on the character.

It’s a well-known fact that Demon Slayer fans can’t get enough of Insect Pillar Shinobu Kocho. It could have something to do with the bright and bubbly demeanor she has towards friends and allies, along with her angelic and graceful appearance. 

But at the same time, it could be the intense rage she has towards the demons she slays and the immense power she displays when dispatching them. Either way, there’s something about her that people love, and it’s not hard to see why.

Shinobu is one of the most popular characters in Demon Slayer.

Shinobu’s popularity as a character has trickled over into the cosplay world, too. We’ve seen her brought to life many times now, and each one is as good as the next.

However, Trinity, also known as raintea.cos on Instagram, made a resounding statement with her incredible take.

Not only did she nail the outfit, but she also captured the ambiance and grace that make the character so special, thanks to a bit of help from talented photographer wesley_kyoku, whose camerawork and lighting played a big part.

“I strongly connect with how Shinobu uses poison to fight,” Trinity told Dexerto. “My day job is in cancer research, so her weaponized wisteria medicine really excites me. She must be one hell of a biochemist to concoct mixtures on the fly!”

She had big shoes to fill, given how many awesome Shinobu cosplays there are floating around on the internet. However, she hit the ball right out of the park, and her 1,200+ followers on social media couldn’t agree more.

And the best part is, she’s got more Demon Slayer content in store for the future. “A friend challenged me to cosplay all nine Hashira, so that’s in the future,” she said. “But first, I have plans next month for some demons! We’ll be recreating a scene.”

It’s going to be an absolute blast. If you want to check it out, you can do so on her Instagram profile by clicking here. Alternatively, you can support her work and contribute towards future projects by clicking here.
