TaiMun, a versatile cosplayer who hails from Italy, pulled off the perfect transformation into Insect Pillar Shinobu Kochu, the butterfly-themed swordswoman from the Demon Slayer Corps.

Shinobu Kocho is perhaps the most popular supporting character in Demon Slayer, particularly among cosplayers. There’s something magnetic about her eerily calm demeanor, her butterfly-like appearance, and powerful skills.

She’s more than just a skilled swordswoman, though. She’s also an expert in medicine and pharmacology, which ties into her insect theme. For that reason, part of her duty is to save allies from demonic venoms and poisons.

Shinobu Kocho’s butterfly-like theme is apparent in everything from her eyes to her clothes.

TaiMun is a versatile cosplayer who has transformed into everything from My Hero Academia’s Froppy and Himiko Toga to Naruto’s Sakura Haruno and more.


Demon Slayer cosplays were missing from her impressive resume, though. So, she decided to change that by metamorphosing into Shinobu Kochu, and it couldn’t have turned out better.

Not only does it have Shinobu’s butterfly hair clip perched on top of her black and purple hair from the top, she even threw in purple contact lenses to match her eyes. It complements the rest of the outfit perfectly.

Demon Slayer cosplays have been all the rage since Season 2 launched, especially ones that turn out as good as this.

After all, it’s one thing to see your favorite characters in the show. But seeing them in the flesh, thanks to the hard work of talented cosplayers like TaiMun, has a special kind of charm.
