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, mc_zelda gave viewers a closer look at the costume. She perfectly mirrored the red and white checkered sash that is tied around the character’s waist. The artist even mirrored Nezuko’s piercing gaze, as in the story her eye color becomes pink after being turned into a demon.
