Steins;Gate made its debut as a visual novel on the Xbox 360 in 2009, and its anime adaption is often considered one of the best in the genre. Its riveting sci-fi story involving time travel has connected with millions around the world.

An artist brought the series lead heroine Kurisu Makise to life with her incredible costume. The cosplayer’s re-creation of scenes from the show will have you believing the world lines have shifted.

Steins;Gate’s Kurisu brought to life

The series follows mad-scientist Okabe Rintarou who accidentally discovers time-travel using his microwave. Perplexed, he teams up with the brilliant physicist Kurisu to unravel the mystery.

Cosplayer ‘quantum-cobalt‘ shared her take on the Steins;Gate character, and faithfully nailed her look. For example, she perfectly mimicked Makise’s hairstyle, from her flowing auburn chestnut hair to her bangs.

The artist teamed up with photographer Karen ‘kkosasiphotos‘ who captured her posing as the genius character pondering. She looks so much like the scientist, it has us seeing double.

Quantum shared more photos of her costume on social media, and gave a deeper look at the amount of detail that went into becoming the character. In another picture, she sits on a set of stairs while lost in thought.


The artist also accurately captured Kurisu’s quirky sense of style, which includes a khaki colored jacket that hangs off her shoulders and a white collared shirt with red tie. She even faithfully depicted her black stockings and pointed boots.

Re-creating a scene from out of the anime in another shot, Quantum knocks back a refreshing Dr Pepper, tying the whole cosplay together. In the series, the drink is called ‘Dk Pepper’ and is, as the protagonist calls, “the drink of intellectuals.”

While originally known as a graphic novel, the series became a worldwide phenomena with its anime adaption by studio White Fox. The show is so popular, it even got a theatrical film in 2013 called  ‘Load Region of Déjà Vu.’


Seven years after the first season finished, fans were treated with a sequel in 2018 called ‘Zero.’ Those wanting to catch up on the sci-fi epic can watch all episodes on Crunchyroll or Funimation.
