A cosplayer brilliantly thunder-breathes life into Demon Slayer’s cowardly but hard-working Zenitsu Agatsuma.
On Douyin, the Chinese version of TikTok, a cosplayer by the name of 貂蝉的腿毛 which translates to “Diaochan’s leg hair,” has transported himself into the world of Demon Slayer. At first glance, the cosplay is relatively simple and unassuming. Standing in front of a green screen and ready for action, the cosplayer slips on the demon slayer’s signature white-triangle patterned yellow and orange haori. Perched on top of the stand is a mini fan, and since the fan is too small to blow enough wind for dramatic effect, the cosplayer pinned the end of the haori to the green screen. However, in the next second, the scene transforms. With some impressive lightning edits, the cosplayer turns into Zenitsu as he utilizes Thunderclap and Flash, the only form of Thunder Breathing he can use.
