Cosplayer ‘peytoncosplay’ dressed up as the heroine, and nailed the character's signature look. From her long black hair, to her arched thick eyebrows, she has us seeing double.

The talented artist collaborated with photographer Roger Lee who captured her as she struck a pose in her white school uniform. Holding her arm, she depicts the character's fighting stance.

Peyton shared more pictures of her faithful costume and gave a better look at all the details that went into making it. She re-created the three clasps on her left arm, which when activated, transforms the suit into a powerful version of itself.

In the story, Satsuki’s attire is alive and is called Junketsu, which she perfectly created with its orange and red eyes that peer out above her chest. The whole piece is tied together with blue trimming and black and gold shoulder pads.

The Argentinian artist also teamed up with fellow cosplayer Glory Lamothe, who posed as Satsuki’s mother Ragyo Kiryuin. Their accurate portrayal of the deadly mother-daughter combo is mind blowing.
