A skilled Demon Slayer cosplayer shared her enchanting take on Mitsuri Kanroji and brought the passionate but deadly Love Pillar to life with an incredibly accurate costume.
2019 was an important year for anime with breakout shows like Demon Slayer taking the medium by storm. Viewers were taken by the series’ dark themes of a boy whose family is slaughtered by demons.
A cosplay artist breathed life into one of the show’s deadliest characters Mitsuri Kanroji. The detailed outfit perfectly re-creates the swordsman’s vibrant look, and will leave fans awestruck.
Cosplayer becomes Demon Slayer’s Mitsuri
In the series, the most powerful swordsmen in the land belong to the Demon Slayer Corps. The strongest fighters in the organization are known as ‘Pillars’ as they posses immense powers with their breath-style attacks.
Cosplayer ‘yukanoi_‘ shared her true-to-life costume of the Love Pillar Mitsuri Kanroji on social media. In the photo, which was taken by ‘Momo.S Wonderland’, she poses with the anime heroine’s katana which twists as if she’s attacking.
