Demon Slayer’s Nezuko Kamado was brought to life by a cosplayer's adorable video. Her incredibly accurate portrayal of the demon-turned heroine will melt your heart, and is the perfect way to get hyped for the upcoming Mugen Train film.

Ever since its 2019 anime debut, Demon Slayer has captivated viewers around the world with its stunning art style, and dark themes. Its story about the Kamado siblings’ quest to avenge their family by hunting down evil has gripped the world.

A talented cosplayer transformed into show's lead heroine Nezuko with a mind blowing true-to-life costume. Her absolutely perfect depiction of the demon-turned sibling went viral when she posted a video recreating the character crawling out of a box.

Nezuko brought to life in adorable video

In the story, Nezuko survives the attack on her family but is tragically turned into a demon herself. Her curse, however, gives her incredible powers, one of them being the ability to shrink down in size so she can hide in the box that her brother carries on his back.

A talented cosplayer Sophie ‘peachmilky_’ adorably recreated this, and posed as the character peeking out of a cupboard. The artist captured Kamado’s look with her pink eyes, and flowing black hair which turns vermillion at the ends.

Sophie also uses a bamboo gag which the girl bites down on to contain her urges to attack humans. Her creative photo takes the cosplay to the next level, as it's almost as if the DS character has crawled from out of the screen.

Peachmilky shared more pictures of her costume on social media, and in another wide-shot taken by photographer ‘lukecraigphoto,’ she showed how insanely detailed and faithful her work is to the anime.

She absolutely nailed Nezuko’s look, which consists of her signature pink patterned yukata and her red and white checkered waist wrap. Striking the heroine's stance from the series, she even included her black leg warmers.

The cosplayer also recorded a video of herself in character, recreating a scene from the show that will melt your heart. Crawling out of the cupboard, she gets a pat on the head. The clip quickly went viral, and has over 37k views on Instagram at the time of writing.
