Cosplayer shares stunning Nezuko take

The show follows the journey of Tanjiro Kamado and his sister Nezuko as they look to find a cure for her curse. The siblings also set out to avenge their family who were massacred by demons.

Cosplayer Katheryne Martínez collaborated with photographer ‘pink_tonberry‘ who captured the artist striking a pose as the Demon Slayer heroine. The stunning picture looks as if it came from the anime itself.

The talented artist struck a pose by biting down on her bamboo gag, which the character does to stop herself from attacking humans when her urges kick in.

The Honduran shared more photos of her costume on Instagram, giving fans a better look at the depth of her work. She faithfully re-created the character’s flowing pink kimono with its geometrical pattern design.

Katheryn also pulled off Nezuko’s lengthy black hair, which spirals into a vermilion color at the ends. The cosplayer held up her hands in a claw stance, simulating the character’s demonic side.

In the story, Nezuko’s eyes turn from red to pink after her transformation, which the artist pulls off. A close up shot gives a glimpse into the detail that went into her outfit, including the red and white checkered waist sash.

Demon Slayer originally made its debut in 2016 as a manga in the popular Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. However it exploded in popularity after its anime adaption by studio Ufotable.
