DIY Tanjiro Cosplay Guide

If you want to get the look of the loyal, protective Tanjiro for your next costume event, start off with his costume that comes in the Tanjiro cosplay set. This costume includes a green and black checkered robe, a black turtleneck button-down shirt with white accents, a white belt, and black wide-legged pants. If you want to achieve his hair, use a tousled brown wig. To accessorize Tanjiro’s look, grab his signature sunset earrings, his cat face mask, temporary tattoos to emulate his facial scars, a katana-style sword, and clog shoes.

If you want to take Tanjiro’s look to the next level, you can imitate his samurai look. You can wrap your ankles in gauze and add brown socks with clog shoes. You also can upgrade your look even more by drawing your eyebrows upwards and by getting some anime-style circle contact lenses to make your eyes look bigger. However, the most important aspect of this cosplay is to adopt Tanjiro’s stoic, determined, protective attitude! 

To keep up with the Demon Slayer theme for your next costume event, have your friends dress up as his sister Nezuko as well as his fellow demon slayers, Genya Shinazugaya, Rengoku, Shinobu, Mitsuri Kanroji, and Inosuke Hayashibara.
