A talented Re:Zero cosplayer became Rem with a unique take on the beloved housemaid. The artist’s twist on the character is the cutest thing you will see all day.

Re:Zero Starting Life in Another World made its debut as a light novel in 2012. The story, written by Tappei Nagatsuki, centers on gamer Subaru Natsuki who is suddenly transported to a fantasy land.

There, the protagonist meets new friends such as Rem, a cute housemaid that is also a deadly fighter. A skilled cosplayer has brought her to life by re-creating a popular figurine of the character to perfection.

Re:Zero’s Rem brought to life

In the story, the protagonist eventually ends up at the Roswaal Mansion where he meets twin demons ‘Rem and Ram.’ The adorable house servants are popular characters in the show.

Cosplayer ‘fu_lxy‘ shared her incredible take on the anime heroine, striking a pose with her short blue wig. Just like the character, her left eye peers out from beneath her signature hair ribbon, while the right side of her face is covered.

The talented artist looks identical to Rem, and is how we always imagined she would appear in real life. She even gets the little details down, such as her ear peeking out beneath strands of her locks.

Fu_lxy based her costume’s unique design on a popular figurine that re-imagined the housemaid as a sheep. The fairy-tale series of dolls is called “The Wolf and the Seven Young Goats” and was created by Furyu.

Wearing an adorable fur cap with ears and a wool-like top, the cosplayer looks identical to the toy. She even puts her hand up to her mouth, re-creating the pose seen on the doll.

In another photo she posted to Instagram, the cosplay artist gave fans a full look at the details on her outfit. From the large beige buttons that run down her coat, to the bell necklace, she nailed the look with insane accuracy.

Demon Slayer cosplayer masters Beast Breathing as Inosuke Hashibira

A talented cosplayer embraced his inner beast and transformed into Inosuke Hashibira from Demon Slayer. His fans can’t believe how accurate it is, and neither can we.

Inosuke Hashibira is one of the most hilarious characters in Demon Slayer. He was raised by boars, which is why he’s rough around the edges when it comes to human interaction. He also has a short-temper and unwavering confidence, and it often lands him in hot water.

But despite his flaws, he’s a formidable ally and a powerful Demon Slayer. He’s a skilled swordsman. However, unlike other characters in the show, he prefers wielding two swords instead of a katana. He also taught himself Beast Breathing, which enhances his sense of touch.

Inosuke also doesn’t look like a typical Demon Slayer. Instead of wearing the traditional outfit, he only wears pants, a belt made from brown animal fur, knee-high socks, and sandals. His trademark feature, however, is the iconic boar’s head he wears to mask his face. It belonged to his adoptive boar mother.

Inosuke’s fighting style is courageous and fierce, much like his attitude.

Inosuke looks like he would be an imposing figure in real life. Fortunately, thanks to talented cosplayer Taryn, we know that for sure. He’s cosplayed everything from Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez from Bleach to Sett from League of Legends. They’re all insanely good. However, his Inosuke is on another level.

“Pig Assault! Hashibira Inosuke,” he said. “I missed this guy. What about you? Would you like to see me cosplaying “unmasked” Inosuke? Would you be ready?”

Taryn will undoubtedly nail the unmasked version, and fans would love to see it. However, his masked version is flawless from head to toe. The outfit itself is simple enough, although he re-created it to a tee. But his version of the actual boar mask is out of this world.

Staying true to the character, he took on a martial arts pose in the first picture and two thumbs up in the second. He’s received almost 10,000 likes between them, which is a good chunk of his 90,000 followers.

Taryn takes his cosplaying very seriously, and his dedication shines through in the quality of each piece. All in all, his version of Inosuke is as good as it gets, and he deserves all the praise.
