Every year Japan creates a list of new words that have entered the Japanese language. In the 2020 list the word “kimetsu no yaiba” made an appearance. Such was the rise in popularity of anime “Demon Slayer”.

Amongst other things, the program is notable for the striking kimono patterns worn by many of the characters. It didn’t take long for the show to take off internationally and for Cosplayers to Tanjiro-style sniff a costuming opportunity.

These days, you can actually find cosplay outfits for just about every Demon Slayer. Or you can collect your own accessories to combine with home made items, or items from your existing wardrobe, to come up with something uniquely your own.

In this article, we will be discussing the steps to take when choosing a Demon slayer cosplay costume. A lot of people want to dress up as a Demon slayer for a convention, but not all costumes are created equal. You’ll need to make sure that you pick one that is accurate and well-made if you want it to last for more than a day.

There are many different styles and types of costumes and each one is made in different material so it’s important to understand what you are looking for in a demon slayer cosplay costume.

We’ve written a bunch about Demon Slayer Opening Theme 鬼滅の刃主題歌 Gurenge 紅蓮華 with lyrics in english translation.

And we’ve gone in to the nuts and bolts around what the Japanese name of Demon Slayer Kimetsu No Yaiba means here. 

Big name characters, such as the Demon Slayer Pillars are generally the most popular, but there are a lot of characters to consider…

Things to watch out for one putting together you Demon Slayer cosplay outfit


The first thing to mention is that, obviously, the image of the sword is extremely important in Demon Slayer. Each of the pillars and other characters has their own distinctive katana that mirrors or says something about their own unique powers, abilities or character.

Unfortunately, a lot of the cosplay costumes don’t actually come with a sword. You generally have to buy these separately, especially if you want a good one.

Luckily, there have been replicas made of most of the characters swords which you can purchase online, of various quality.

The first thing though is just don’t forget the sword! What is a Demon Slayer without a sword?

Robin Williams once joked about English policemen who don’t carry guns. He mused on what they must say to criminals on the run, “Stop! Stop, or I’ll say stop again!”.

Same story for a Kimetsu-tai member with no sword.

Demon Slayer Accessories

Be aware that not all accessories are always included in Demon Slayer Costumes .

In particular, you might need to think about your own footwear. Nothing ruins a good Cosplay outfit like a pair of boring old sneakers.


Now where not ones for body-shaming here at Japanoscope, but you may want to think how each of these Demon Slayer outfits goes with your particular body type.

Some of the characters, Inosuke with his topless, buff, six-pack body for example, are going to be hard to pull off if you’ve got an Asahi beer-gut. Just sayin’.

Now we haven’t done a double-blind, control-group scientific social but the most common Demon Slayer Cosplay outfits you see around tend to be:

  1. Nezuko
  2. Tanjiro
  3. Mitsuri Kanoji
  4. Shinobu Kocho
  5. Inosuke
  6. Zenitsu

1. Nezuko Cosplay

Nezuko is perhaps the most popular Kimetsu No Yaiba character that cosplayers go after.

With her combination of cuteness, beauty, power and darkness, she presents a compelling character. The fact that she has a protective bamboo cutting tied to her mouth is, well, kinda suggestive of something a little sado-masochistic. It does present a challenge, or demand for commitment from potential cosplayers though!

Here’s an example of a successful rendering of the character in real life.

Note the crisp-pink bow that has been made with relatively tough, wide material and folded, quasi-origami style, to achieve a solid shape that gives the overall costume a sense of sharpness.

And another Nezuko example:

 The cut of the Nezuko pink Kimono here is quite suggestive and plays up the sweet-yet-sexy Nezuko look. Who says demons can’t be hot?

Nezuko Cosplay Accessories

Not all Nezuko cosplay sets come with everything. If you want to achieve the full Demon Slayer effect, your will, in particular, need some shoes. Such as nezuko-style pink setta sandals.

You’ll also want the two-tone Nezuko hair style (either with bow attached or make your own)

Indeed, if you want to get creative and make your own truly one-of-a-kind Demonslayer outfit, then it may be better to get some of these accessories individually, mix-and-match them and combine them with other items from your existing wardrobe.

Tanjiro Cosplay

Of course, the most obvious choice for Demon Slayer cosplay is the show’s main character Tanjiro. With his Japanese school style uniform mixed with his distinctive green and black chequered haori and white belt, Tanjiro cuts a distinctive image.

Oh, and did we mention that Tanjiro carries a sword. So an effective Tanjiro cosplay demands a realistic looking katana.

Tanjiro Jacket Haori/Happi

Probably one of the most distinctively recognizable features of Tanjiro’s out fit is his green and black top, which appears in the form of a haori or happi coat.

This means that you don’t necessarily need the whole Tanjiro outfit to get across the message that you are appearing as Tanjiro. Just putting this jacket on over the top of other clothes is enough to get the sense across that you are referencing Kimetsu No Yaiba’s most heart warming demon slayer.

Tanjiro Sword

The title “Demon Slayer” actually refers to the sword, as we have written about in our kimetsu no yaiba meaning page.

So a good looking sword really is integral to a good Tanjrio costume. Resist the urge to cut up a cardboard box!

Tanjiro Earrings

Second only to Tanjiro’s jacket, Tanjiro’s earrings are one of his most identifiable objects.

3. Inosuke Cosplay

If you’re wanting to express your inner wild-one, inosuke might be the way to go.

The main challenge here might be the fact that this one is hard to pull off if your rippling six pack is not so much rippling as wobbling. Ahem.

You better hope that the weather is kinda warm too!

If you find either of these criteria are not being met, you might get away with wearing a tight white or black top.

But, you know, if you’ve got it, flaunt it.

Full Inosuke Cosplay Outfits

There are some good full outfit options available for Inosuke. Most of thome won’t include all the accessories though, so you will probably need to chop and change a little to get the full and convincing inosuke get-up together. You may need to source the headpiece, sword and footwear separately.

Often it is the shoes that can let down, or make, a costume. A pair of “chika-tabi” are one good option for wearing beneath the your other Inosuke clobber.

4. Mitsuri Kanroji Cosplay

The Demon Slayer juggernaut looks set to roam the world of the undead for some time. The Kimetsu-tai is going to need recruits for some time. It may be time to don your colorful haori to go in search of some tortured souls to destroy!

Putting together your demon slayer outfit
