An incredibly skilled cosplayer shared his scorching take on Demon Slayer’s Kyojuro Rengoku, bringing the Fire Pillar to life with an insanely true-to-life costume that will leave enemies feeling the heat.

Demon Slayer was one of the most popular anime shows in 2019, as its dark story about a teenage boy’s quest to avenge his family after they are slayed by demons made it a breakout hit.

A talented cosplayer shared a mind-blowing take on series favorite Rengoku, and is sure to wow fans of the show with their transformation into the fire-wielding swordsman.

In the show’s story, the Pillars are the strongest fighters in Demon Slayer corps, as each of these leaders possess a unique power such as Rengoku’s Breath of Flame ability.

Cosplayer John ‘moderatelyokaycosplay‘ shared their take on the popular character, transforming into the fire wielding slayer with an incredibly detailed outfit.

Teaming up with photographer Alexandra Brumley, the artist is perfectly captured as they pose as the anime hero, wielding his iconic sword dripping with flames as his cape trails behind him.

John shared more of the outfit on social media, where fans get a better view of how accurate the costume really is, especially recreating his yellow and red spiky hair, and thick eyebrows.

The talented artist even added the details of the sword’s hilt being in the shape of a flame, as well as the gorgeous fire colors on the inside of the flowing cape.

If that wasn’t enough, moderatelyokaycosplay also posted a video where they collaborated with filmmaker Sean Rustay who brilliant captured the character wielding his sword in action, using special effects to truly bring the Fire Pillar to life like never before.

Demon Slayer originally released as a manga in 2016, although it found worldwide success after its 2019 anime adaptation by Ufotable and became a breakout sensation.

While the first season has ended, fans early await the sequel film which is supposed to release in 2020. For those that haven’t seen it yet, you can watch the show in its entirety on Crunchyroll or Funimation.

Attack on Titan’s Eren Yeager is a popular choice among cosplayers, but a recent effort re-created the character perfectly, and the pictures have gone viral. 

Attack on Titan is one of the darkest and strangest mainstream animes in recent times. However, that hasn’t stopped it from becoming an incredibly popular smash-hit. If anything, it’s probably the reason why.

Nobody ever thought they’d be into a story about human soldiers locked into a battle with over-sized human-looking monsters called Titans who eat people.

Yet, here we all are, and we’re hooked. 

Attack on Titan has many interesting characters, but it revolves around Eren Yeager, the main protagonist. He started as an impulsive and hardheaded peasant with a burning despite to help eliminate Titans.

But he quickly grew into a capable member of the Scout Regiment and even stumbled upon a special power of his own. For that reason, he’s become a fan-favorite among fans and cosplayers alike.

A cosplayer named Noah Lance decided to step into Eren Yeager’s boots. They’re massive ones to fill, but he did such a great job, the photos have gone viral. The pictures have already generated almost 10,000 likes on Instagram.

“I hate people when they’re not polite,” he said, in reference to one of Eren Yeager’s quotes from the show. “If you end up on my table, then it serves you right.”

Noah’s outfit looks like the real deal. It has everything from the khaki-colored shirt, brown belt, brown straps to a replica necklace. The dual swords are the best feature, though, and they round it off nicely.

There’s also a second shot that provides a more zoomed-out view of the boots, straps, and pants. Noah’s definitely put in a lot of attention to detail, and it shows.

“And I’m hoping that you will see yourself like I see you,” he said.

Attack on Titan can be dark and grueling at times, but it still provides endless opportunities for fans and cosplayers to shine. Noah’s Eren Yeager cosplay is a testament to that.

The fourth and final series kicks off on December 7.

It marks the beginning of the end for the show, but there’s no doubt Attack on Titan fans will be in for a roller-coaster ride along the way.
