Bringing one of the show’s protagonists to life, a talented artist shared a perfect portrayal of Nezuko. She looks so much like her, it’s almost as if the character has clawed her way out of the screen.

Cosplayer ‘mc_zelda’ shared her true-to-life take on the anime heroine on Instagram. Photographer ‘martinabrui_photography captured the artist posing in Kamado’s iconic pink yukata.

The Italian re-created the character’s bamboo gag, which she bites down on to stop herself from attacking humans. The picture could easily be mistaken for a scene from the anime, as the artist is shrouded in darkness with bloodied hands.

In another shot posted to social media, the cosplayer gave viewers a better look at all the details that went into creating her One Piece costume. She even drew letters on the back of her fingers to spell out ‘DEATH’ to mimic his hand tattoo.

Channeling the cutthroat’s personality, she grabs the tip of her fur cap while holding their weapon by her side. This is easily one of the best takes we’ve ever seen of the Heart Pirate.
