Spanning across time, Violet Evergarden follows the story of protagonist Violet. While her origins are a mystery, the series shows us her time in the war as a soldier before flashing to the current day where she records memories for those who can’t write.
Prolific cosplayer Mk Ays brought the character to life with her insanely accurate costume. In a series of posts on Twitter, the creative artist showed off her jaw-dropping transformation into the Auto Memory Doll as she posed in the heroine’s signature attire.
Her outfit is meticulously detailed, from her blue leather jacket to her sparkling green broach around her neck. She also perfectly captures the blonde bun hairstyle that is tied back with a red ribbon, as well as her two flowing bangs which frame each side of her face.

Throughout the show, we learn that Violet lost her arms in the war. Now equipped with mechanical prosthetics, she writes letters – which Ays faithfully depicted in two shots.
The artist accurately mirrored a scene from the show where the character takes off her gloves to expose her robotic hands.
