Demon Slayer's Nezuko brought to life

After her family is viciously massacred by evil, Nezuko is cursed and turned into a demon. The story centers around Tanjiro and her looking to find a cure, while also avenging their loved ones.

Prolific cosplayer Misaki 'saiwestwood' Sai shared her stunning take on the DS character, and re-created a scene straight out of the anime with the help of photographer Tanya 'envytheone' Larina.

Striking the heroine's signature pose, the gorgeous outdoor backdrop really evokes the animation's setting. The artist absolutely nailed her look, capturing Kamado's flowing black hair which spirals into a vermilion color at the bottom.

The Japan-based cosplay artist posted more photos of her costume on Instagram, such as an action shot edited by 'envytheone' where she looks ready to battle her enemies. Biting down on her bamboo gag, Sai mimicked the heroine's denomic fighting stance with her claws out.

From her piercing eyes, to her flowing pink patterned Yukata, her insanely detailed outfit looks just like we always imagined a live-action film version of Nezuko would be.

As if that wasn't impressive enough, Misaki took her cosplay to a new level and filmed herself in character. Moving her pink eyes and showing her fangs, she truly brings Nezuko to life. At the time of writing, the post has over 9k views.
