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.

While Demon Slayer’s first season has wrapped up, fans can look forward to the theatrical film Mugen Train which bridges the story until the show makes its inevitable return.

Here is everything we know about the anticipated movie. Those wanting to catch up in time or see what all the hype is about can check every single episode on streaming services Crunchyroll and Funimation.

A talented cosplayer brought Steins;Gate protagonist Kurisu Makise to life. The talented artist made waves on Instagram after transforming into the red-haired scientist. 

While Steins;Gate originally made its debut as a visual novel in 2009, the series’ animated adaptation in 2011 is considered one of the best animes of all time. Its complex sci-fi narrative and diverse cast of characters has connected with viewers around the world.

A cosplayer showed her love for the time travel story by transforming into protagonist Kurisu Makise. The artist’s true-to-life take on the scientist is so perfect, it’s almost as if the heroine has changed world lines and warped out of the screen.

Steins:Gate cosplayer wows as perfect Kurisu Makise

The anime opens with mad scientist Rintarou Okabe discovering a time anomaly involving physicist Kurisu. The heroine eventually joins the protagonist’s makeshift lab, where they discover time travel using a microwave machine and a cellphone. 

Cosplayer Leza ‘someonefromrussia’ made waves on Instagram after sharing her perfect re-creation of the red-haired scientist. Photographer ‘dobrolis’ captured the artist posing in the character’s signature outfit which consists of a white shirt, red tie, and black shorts.

The cosplayer showed off the incredible details of her outfit while mirroring a scene from the show where Makise holds a soda drink hilariously called DK Pepper. She even portrayed the heroine’s quirky sense of fashion by wearing her beige jacket around her elbows.

Leza also teamed up with fellow cosplayer ‘dan.aligieri2011’ who looks like the real life version of Okabe. The duo posed back-to-back for photographer ‘kmitenkova’, who shot them re-creating the anime’s iconic opening sequence.

Despite releasing over a decade ago, Steins;Gate is still incredibly popular and influential. The show is often ranked as one of the top best animes of all time by critics and fans.

The franchise was so beloved that it got a second season over seven years later called “Zero”. Fans can catch all episodes now on streaming services Crunchyroll and Funimation.
