Demon Slayer took over the spring 2019 anime season becoming one of the most popular anime this year by the time it ended in the summer. The shonen-action anime follows Tanjirou Kamado on a quest to avenge his family who was slaughtered by demons. However, this list isn’t about Tanjirou. It’s about Tanjirou’s sister Nezuko.
When the Kamado family was attacked, Nezuko managed to survive. However, she was turned into a demon. Nezuko travels with Tanjirou wearing a muzzle and inside a box Tanjirou carries on his back. The two characters search for a way to stop the demons and return Nezuko back to a human. Nezuko became a very popular character in the anime community inspiring many memes and had fans making amazing cosplays, such as these.
One of Elisa Marzano’s many Nezuko cosplays, this one shows off the classic Nezuko look. Her signature pink nails match the pink eyes, ribbon, and pink clothes Nezuko wears. Marzano has done many different versions of Nezuko including a Halloween themed set that can be found on her Instagram.
In the anime, Nezuko wears a muzzle to stop her from tasting human blood. The muzzle is made from bamboo. Marzano’s muzzle in the photo perfectly replicated Nezuko’s.
