A talented cosplayer stunned fans with her take on Demon Slayer’s Sanemi Shinazugawa, transforming herself into one of the nine pillars from the popular anime.

Demon Slayer proved one of the most popular animes to break out of 2019, as its story about a teenager named Tanjiro Kamado who seeks to avenge his family after they are slayed by demons connected with millions.

Debuting in April, it’s already become revered in the cosplay community, and a talented artist created an incredibly true-to-life costume to transform herself into demon hunter Sanemi.

Sanemi is a member of Demon Slayer Corps, and is one of the nine pillars of the organization – their most elite hunters, who are capable of powers beyond anyone else.

The character infamously has scars across his face and across his body, as he’s collected them over the years from demons, which cosplayer ‘anna_gens‘ captured perfectly with her chilling costume.

Anna perfectly nailed the messy white hair that falls across the slayer’s face, as well as his intense eyes and facial expression, which the character makes throughout the show.

The talented artist shared another photo of her cosplay on Instagram, giving us a full look of her incredibly faithful recreation of the abrasive anime character.

She did an amazing job re-mimicking the scars in the style of the animation itself,  and his open chested robes that show the massive cuts on his torso from battles.

As of the time of writing this article, the Russian cosplayer has amassed over 6.5k followers, as she continues to impress anime fans with her detailed outfits.

Early on in the story, Nezuko Kamado is turned into a demon after surviving a brutal attack from a creature. A part of her new powers is the ability to shrink her body. To avoid being seen, the heroine travels in a box that is carried by her brother.

Cosplayer ‘aru.rinh’ went viral on Instagram after bringing the iconic plot point to real life. Photographer ‘muze‘ captured Zekia sitting in a box strapped to the back of an artist portraying her sibling, Tanjiro.

Adorably, her legs hang out of the wooden container as she sits snugly in the box. In the picture’s caption, she explained, “yes i do fit all the way into the box.”

In another shot posted to social media, aru.rinh gave viewers a full look at how detailed her costume really is. She faithfully created Nezuko’s signature pink yukata, including the red and white checkered sash around her waist. Zekia even included the character’s large leg wraps that go into her sandals.

The cosplayer also posed in an up-close portrait photo, and shows off how faithful her look is to the anime. In the series, the Kamado sibling’s eyes turn bright pink after being turned into a demon, which aru.rinh nailed effortlessly as her curly black hair falls on her shoulders.
