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.
Re:Zero was one of the breakout series of 2016. Its popularity exploded with its animated anime adaptation, and a second season has been announced for April 2020.
