A skilled cosplayer took antagonist Diavolo from JoJo Bizarre Adventure’s fifth manga story arc Golden Wind and transformed him into a real-life work of art that will have fans swooning.

In the show and the manga, Diavolo is Golden Wind’s main adversary, and is known to be the boss of the drug-dealing gang Passione. He constantly wreaks havoc by trying to keep his identity a secret, and has an obsession with erasing any trace of himself from history.

Despite his menacing personality, people love him, and cosplay artist Kat from Angelic Daze Cosplay is no different – they decided to bring the villain to the real world with a stunning take on the aggressive mafia character.

JoJo’s Diavolo comes to life

One of the boss’s most iconic features is his leopard-patterned pink hair that falls just below his shoulders and is parted to the side – something that the artist managed to pull off seamlessly with a perfectly styled wig.

The character’s other prominent element is his outfit that consists of a shirt of sorts made from mesh wiring that attaches to the belt with long chainlinks across the torso, and his pants also stand out with their vibrant purple color.

Kat completely nails his threads with their look, and even posed with some black ropes in the shot to tie everything together, and to make it appear as though the antagonist had jumped right out of the TV screen itself.

Another photograph shows the Golden Wind adversary in a different pose – this time with his chest on display. As the character’s outfit is so skimpy with his mesh “shirt” and belt chains, it’s only natural that in the show and the manga, his muscles are always out for the world to see.

The cosplayer managed to achieve the boss’s impeccable pecs by using a bodysuit and then applying extra body paint to make them stand out more – something that obviously paid off.

While Diavolo’s appearance is very intricately detailed, the artist pulls off every element perfectly, and their design makes for the perfect real-life portrayal of the mafia boss.

Kat’s cosplay designs have proven to be a hit with many, as their Instagram account boasts a decent 26,300 followers at this time of writing.

Not only is their representation of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure great, they’ve also created amazing designs from other popular anime such as Studio Ghibli’s Howl’s Moving Castle, and Sailor Moon.

My Hero Academica isn’t all about the main characters since there are plenty of excellent minor ones too, and one cosplayer stunned her fans by dressing up as Rabbit Hero Mirko.

Mirko is an awesome character for many reasons. My Hero Academica fans love her tough, straightforward, and tenacious personality. However, they also love the fact she takes on intense situations with a big smile.

Mirko also has a somewhat zen-like approach to life, which is a stark contrast to her ferocity. She takes every day as it comes and has no qualms about putting her life on the line for the greater good. All in all, it makes her the perfect fifth-ranked professional hero.

Rabbit Hero Mirko is one of the toughest heroes in My Hero Academia.

My Hero Academia cosplayers often dress up as main characters and fan-favorites. However, they still show minor characters like Rabbit Hero Mirko some love too, and that’s exactly what Julia (also known as capulet.cos) has done.

“Joining a team is for weaklings,” she wrote, in reference to Mirko’s belief that teams are for cowards.

“More Bunny content for y’all. She’s definitely my favorite character from [My Hero Academia] and [I] love the amount of confidence this cosplay gives me.”

Julia looks absolutely stunning as Rabbit Hero Mirko. She’s included everything from the trademark bunny ears, white hair, fluffy collar, and gloves to a picture-perfect replication of the outfit itself.

It even has the crescent moon symbol on her chest, which ties in with the name of some of Mirko’s moves. Luna Ring, Luna Fall, and Luna Arc all revolve around Mirko’s insanely powerful leg kicks.

Unfortunately, it seems like the wig is a bit of a hassle to wear. “I hate the wig so much,” said Julia. “It tangles so fast.”

Still, it looks fantastic and was definitely worth the trouble. My Hero Academia fans have been pouring in to praise Julia and show their support, and the numbers keep on rising.
