Russian cosplayer Melissa ‘gardeeva_melissa‘ brought the cursed protagonist to life with a costume she posted on Instagram. The artist posed next to flowers in the character’s signature pink patterned yukata, and her kimono which drapes over her shoulders.

Melissa faithfully captured Nezuko’s look, perfectly mirroring her flowing black hair, which turns vermillion at the bottom in curls. She even depicted her pale pink eyes, which is the color they change to after the heroine is turned into a demon.
