Demon Slayer has quickly become one of the most popular animes in the world, and a talented cosplayer has shown off their incredible take on one of the series’ most recognizable characters, Nezuko Kamado.
Few shows have captured the attention of audience worldwide like Demon Slayer did in 2019, as viewers followed the story of Tanjiro, a young man determined to avenge his family who were brutally killed by a group of demons, and turned his sister into one of the creatures as well.
Desperate to find a cure for his sibling , Tanjiro joins the Demon Corps, and vows to kill any of the monsters he sees while searching for a way to bring his sister back to human form permanently. While the story’s main character may be Tanjiro, Nezuko became a fan-favorite almost immediately, and her unique look has prompted fans across the world to dress up as the character.
Cosplayer ‘sakuravee_’ has become the latest Demon Slayer fan to show off their incredible version of the character, debuting a look that could be lifted directly off the screen due to its incredible detail and accuracy.
One of the things that makes Nekuzo so recognizable is the bamboo gag she wears around her neck, which is often found in her mouth.
While this may look a little odd, it serves an important purpose, as she bites down on it when she gets the urge to kill humans, stopping her from tearing into the people around her, and proving that there is still some humanity left inside her even after her transformation.

Nekuzo’s outfit is also perfect, including her pink and white robes, paired with a green belt that sits around her waist. She even managed to recreate the character’s bewitching pink eyes, which appeared after her transformation into demon form, and added a pink ribbon in her flowing brown hair to finish off the look.

Demon Slayer originally took off as a manga back in 2016, but nobody could expect the smash hit the anime would become when it released in 2019. The series proved so popular with fans, that Ufotable confirmed that they would be producing a film in 2020 to continue the story.
For those who have yet to see the show, and are struggling to understand the hype behind the show, you can catch the first season in its entirety on Crunchyroll or Funimation.
