A talented cosplayer gave fans a peek at JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure’s next anime protagonist Jolyne Cujoh with a mind blowing costume which went viral. The perfect portrayal brings the main character of the Stone Ocean arc to life.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure made its debut in 1987, and is one of the most influential properties of all time in Japan. The series follows the Joestar family, with each arc focusing on a new descendant in the lineage.

Stone Ocean takes place in Florida in 2011, and begins with Jolyene unjustly being arrested and sent to the Green Dolphin St. prison. She soon finds out she’s been set up, and is entangled in a mysterious plot.

Cosplayer Shirogane Same shared her jaw-dropping true-to-life outfit of Cujoh on social media. Teaming up with photographer ‘’ and ‘jkyle_ph,’ she captured the anime’s vibrant art style to perfection.

The JoJo heroine has become an icon in the fashion world, as her neon colored look is striking. The skilled artist nailed the character’s quirky attire, re-creating her popular spider-web patterned outfit.

Shirogane’s costume is full of detail – she even created Jolyne’s iconic Butterfly dagger symbol which sits at the center of her chest. Striking a pose with handcuffs around her wrists, this truly feels like the Joestar heroine has jumped from out of the screen.

The cosplayer shared another photo of her work, this time a close-up shot that truly shows how accurate her depiction is. From her neon soaked lipstick, to her black and green twin bun hairstyle, this truly is the best cosplay we’ve seen of Cujoh.

Fans of the series lost it when they saw the artist’s jaw-dropping JoJo portrayal, such as user ‘rogarcia1996′ who exclaimed, “Holy s**t! Amazing cosplay.” Another agreed, and complemented how accurate she looked by simply stating “Jolyne irl.”

Fans of JoJo’s Bizarre adventure were blown away by the cosplayer.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure has never been more popular, as the series wrapped up its animated adaptation of Golden Wind in July 2019. Now all eyes are on the upcoming Stone Ocean anime.

As of now there has so far been no announcement of when new episodes will air. But a safe guess is summer 2021. Those wanting to catch up in time can watch episodes on Netflix and Crunchyroll.

A Princess Mononoke cosplayer brought the film’s protagonist San to life with a stunning costume. The artist’s breathtaking transformation into the Studio Ghibli character will leave fans speechless.

In 1997, renowned director Hayao Miyazaki debuted his groundbreaking seventh film, Princess Mononoke. The environmentalist-themed story was so popular, it’s still the eighth highest grossing movie of all time in Japan.

A talented cosplayer celebrated the influential anime by bringing it to life with a jaw-dropping outdoor photoshoot. The artist’s incredible take on wolf girl San is so good, it’s almost as if the protagonist has clawed her way out of the screen.

The film centers on protagonist Ashitaka, who leaves his village after tragically becoming infected by a corrupted spirit. The banished prince embarks on a quest to look for a cure and confront the curse that corrupted the animal that wandered into his home.

Cosplayer ‘Jennifer Sonntag’ brought the movie’s second lead character, Princess San, to life with her stunning cosplay which she shared on Instagram. Photographer ‘jospixelart’ captured the artist posing in the heroine’s iconic white and blue outfit next to a wolf.

Jenny nailed San’s signature attire, which includes a white fur cape that drapes over her back as well as her red and gold warrior mask which she uses to cover her face while battling against human enemies. She even included her scarlet facepaint which sits under each eye.

In another shot posted on her social media, the artist re-created a scene from the Ghibi film where the lead character sits on a rock. Jen looks ready to fight with her wolf family as she holds her prop dagger while having her headdress down. The outdoor backdrop gorgeously ties the whole thing together and could easily be mistaken for a screenshot from the film.

Despite releasing over 23 years ago, Princess Mononoke still continues to be one of the most influential anime films of all time. Its dark themes and gritty depiction of violence was a departure for Miyazaki’s usually child-friendly projects.

Those looking to catch the classic movie are in luck as it can currently be watched right now on HBO’s streaming service MAX. Also in 2019, Studio Ghibli struck a deal with Apple TV and Amazon to sell all of their theatrical releases digitally for the very first time.
