Cosplayers have had a frustrating time this past year, with most comic con and anime events being taken online or cancelled altogether. Despite being unable to share their creations to a room full of like-minded fans, that hasn’t stopped creators from sharing their cosplay creations online.

As some restrictions lift around the world, one cosplayer and model has managed to debut their Inosuke cosplay at an event, which attracted a lot of attention from attendees. The cosplayer also has a slideshow of impressive photographs to help bring the character to life.

Inosuke Cosplay

The terrific Inosuke cosplay features the character’s animal fur pants and iconic boar head, with photos taken of the cosplayer roaming around comic con and posing with other creators. The cosplayer also has a collection of professional photographs taken in the wild, posing with the character’s dual swords. One photograph even recreates an iconic scene from the anime, when Inosuke attacks Zenitsu while he protects Nezuko in the box. 

The cosplayer is known as jiunianshinian on Instagram, where he posts a variety of progress pictures of his physique. The Chinese model also makes content around his workout routine for his community of 20,000. Showcasing a mixture of professional photoshoots and selfies, jiunianshinian does not dabble in cosplay too often, but when he does, it’s an impressive effort.

Who is Inosuke?

Inosuke Hashibira is a main character from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, appearing as the companion of Tanjiro Kamado and a slayer within the Demon Slayer Corps. The pale-looking character is extremely well built for his young age of 15 and sports an alternate demon slayer uniform wearing only the hakama pants with animal fur as a belt. The defining feature of Inosuke’s costume is the hollow boar’s head that he wears as a mask.

In contrast to jiunianshinian’s cosplay, Inosuke actually has very feminine facial features, bereft of understanding human connections as he was raised by boars. Thanks to his upbringing, Inosuke harbors animalistic combat and imitation, with enhanced strength and perception, and has evolved his swordsmanship to the level of Hashira.
