Demon Slayer cosplayer's epic Kyojuro Rengoku

In the series, the most powerful swordsmen belong to the Demon Slayer Corps. The organization's strongest warriors are called Pillars, and have immense powers due to having incredible control over their breathing.

Popular cosplayer 'sparkle_stache' brought Flame Pillar Rengoku to life with a jaw-dropping outfit. The artist perfectly depicted his scorching gaze, using insanely detailed contact lenses by 'uniqso.'

Sparkle also teamed up with 'animeecosplay' to pull off the character's iconic wild spiky yellow and orange hair, which looks like a flame. She even depicted the warrior's arched eyebrows that tie in to his fiery nature.

Photographer 'dalepancho' captured the artist posing with Rengoku's iconic katana sword, in what could easily be mistaken for a scene from the anime. The picture burns with a warm glow due to the gorgeous editing done by 'ext.photography.'
