Junji Ito has created some of the most striking horror manga ever made. His style is instantly recognizable and keeps inspiring cosplayers who aim to bring his nightmares to life.

As Kotaku previously posted (here and here), cosplayer Ikura is a master of Ito horror cosplay.

But she’s not alone. Twitter user Suksuk_z is the latest to do an unsettlingly accurate take on Ito’s work. Below, she cosplays as Tomie Kawakami.

Excellent and scary.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.
