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Demon Slayer originally made its debut in 2016 as a manga in the popular Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.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.

For those that want to see what all the hype is about, the first season can be watched in its entirety on streaming services Crunchyroll or Funimation.

The anime opens with mad scientist Rintarou Okabe discovering a time anomaly involving physicist Kurisu. The heroine eventually joins the protagonist’s makeshift lab, where they discover time travel using a microwave machine and a cellphone. 

Cosplayer Leza ‘someonefromrussia’ made waves on Instagram after sharing her perfect re-creation of the red-haired scientist. Photographer ‘dobrolis’ captured the artist posing in the character’s signature outfit which consists of a white shirt, red tie, and black shorts.

The cosplayer showed off the incredible details of her outfit while mirroring a scene from the show where Makise holds a soda drink hilariously called DK Pepper. She even portrayed the heroine’s quirky sense of fashion by wearing her beige jacket around her elbows.

Leza also teamed up with fellow cosplayer ‘dan.aligieri2011’ who looks like the real life version of Okabe. The duo posed back-to-back for photographer ‘kmitenkova’, who shot them re-creating the anime’s iconic opening sequence.

Despite releasing over a decade ago, Steins;Gate is still incredibly popular and influential. The show is often ranked as one of the top best animes of all time by critics and fans.

The franchise was so beloved that it got a second season over seven years later called “Zero”. Fans can catch all episodes now on streaming services Crunchyroll and Funimation.
