The Shikimori Cosplay that came straight from the anime

Kawaii dake ja Nai Shikimori-san

We usually post about cosplay here on the site is when the cosplay in question really stands out for whatever reason, and that’s the case with this Shikimori cosplay.

Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie is a spring season anime this year, having premiered in April, it brought the waifu Shikimori to the anime world, a girl with pink hair who very protectively protects her boyfriend:

So, cosplayer Akase posted a photo of her newest cosplay, a Shikimori cosplay. The cosplay is so impressive that it looks like it came straight from the anime to real life.

The original post on her profile has more than 100,000 likes and almost 10,000 shares, so far this was the only photo of her Shikimori cosplay that the girl posted on her profile, which is a shame because I wish I could see more.

Akase also has other awesome cosplays on her profile:
