When people think of Yu-Gi-Oh! the first thing that likely comes to mind is Yugi and his signature card Dark Magician, but we can’t sleep on his counterpart – the Dark Magician Girl.

Yu-Gi-Oh! features a wide collection of cards that is constantly growing and almost all of them have an elaborate design to help them stand apart from each other.

While many of the cosplays we see surrounding the anime and card game are of the characters themselves, many of the monsters themselves are actually cosplayed.

Yu-Gi-Oh!Dark Magician Girl is one of the most popular characters in the franchise.

Dark Magician Girl is always a popular choice, buoyed by the fact she’s not technically a monster, and with her card itself having so many different designs, there are a lot of paths that can be taken with it.

Instagram cosplayer gibgabcosplay showed her take on the original version of Dark Magician Girl, and she delivers in a big way.

Any fan of the anime will instantly recognize DMG’s iconic blue and pink design and be blown away by it. We don’t know how long gibgab took on her design, but we can safely say whatever time she put in has absolutely paid off in a big way.

If you take a quick look through her Instagram, you’ll quickly see the Dark Magician Girl is one of her favorite designs as there are numerous images of her as the character.

With that said, it’s not the only thing that appears on the page as there are also cosplays of Samus from the Metroid series and even a couple from the film A Nightmare Before Christmas.

The Dark Magician Girl outfit looks like it’s the most elaborate of her designs, so it’s no surprise to see her showing off that one the most.

There are plenty of different female magicians in the Yu-Gi-Oh! universe, so it’d be cool to see her try out a take on some of the others. We’re sure they would be just as amazing, if not better, as the current one!

A Princess Mononoke cosplayer brought the film’s protagonist San to life with a stunning costume. The artist’s breathtaking transformation into the Studio Ghibli character will leave fans speechless.

In 1997, renowned director Hayao Miyazaki debuted his groundbreaking seventh film, Princess Mononoke. The environmentalist-themed story was so popular, it’s still the eighth highest grossing movie of all time in Japan.

A talented cosplayer celebrated the influential anime by bringing it to life with a jaw-dropping outdoor photoshoot. The artist’s incredible take on wolf girl San is so good, it’s almost as if the protagonist has clawed her way out of the screen.

The film centers on protagonist Ashitaka, who leaves his village after tragically becoming infected by a corrupted spirit. The banished prince embarks on a quest to look for a cure and confront the curse that corrupted the animal that wandered into his home.

Cosplayer ‘Jennifer Sonntag’ brought the movie’s second lead character, Princess San, to life with her stunning cosplay which she shared on Instagram. Photographer ‘jospixelart’ captured the artist posing in the heroine’s iconic white and blue outfit next to a wolf.

Jenny nailed San’s signature attire, which includes a white fur cape that drapes over her back as well as her red and gold warrior mask which she uses to cover her face while battling against human enemies. She even included her scarlet facepaint which sits under each eye.

In another shot posted on her social media, the artist re-created a scene from the Ghibi film where the lead character sits on a rock. Jen looks ready to fight with her wolf family as she holds her prop dagger while having her headdress down. The outdoor backdrop gorgeously ties the whole thing together and could easily be mistaken for a screenshot from the film.

Despite releasing over 23 years ago, Princess Mononoke still continues to be one of the most influential anime films of all time. Its dark themes and gritty depiction of violence was a departure for Miyazaki’s usually child-friendly projects.

Those looking to catch the classic movie are in luck as it can currently be watched right now on HBO’s streaming service MAX. Also in 2019, Studio Ghibli struck a deal with Apple TV and Amazon to sell all of their theatrical releases digitally for the very first time.
