Wow, takes a moment to realize this video is a real human being, not CGI.
Get a load of this insanely great cosplay by professional cosplayer Leon Chiro [Instagram] paying homage to JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (in Japanese: ジョジョの奇妙な冒険), a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hirohiko Araki.
The manga was first serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump in 1987.
His work is pretty incredible!

■ DIO BRANDO – ディオ・/ JJBA Stardust Crusaders ⠀⠀ • このディオだッ • 💚⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Keep Calm and 𝗪𝗥𝗥𝗥𝗥𝗬𝗬𝗬𝗧𝗬𝗬𝗬𝗬𝗬𝗬 😈 😈 ⠀ ⠀ DIO is for sure the JoJo Cosplay I’m most proud of in terms of make-up, interpretation and final result. The MAIN reason why it means so much it’s because the story I have behind it and this Cosplay is also the manifestation of the fact that “You can do EVERYTHING you dream if you really have the determination to do it!”. ⠀ ⠀ I was really going through a lot during the days of this shooting and my luggage also got lost before Anime Expo, which was also the only con I decided to go by myself, just to fully enjoy it with everybody without any guest schedules. It was one of those moments I was really dreaming to live just like the old times and it was meaning a lot to finally just enjoy a con without any other activities. I bought my own flight, payed my hotel by myself and I went in LA to finally debut my cosplays there.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Thankfully I have experience and I traveled with my DIO Cosplay in my hand luggage but needless to say… when my luggage got lost by the flight company on a direct flight, I was missing all my makeup / accessories and all the rest I needed. This really destroyed me but I stayed positive and I decided to smile, enjoy and work to find a solution.⠀ ⠀ I proved myself that nothing can stop me when I truly want to do something! I thank again with all my heart my team – Cosplay Annart -, @mischaxel and @rcccreations for being part of this project. ⠀ ⠀ ■ THIS picture right here is the physical manifestation of the fact I did it that day and I didn’t back down. And YOU, my friends – you can do the same! ❤️⠀ ⠀ BELIEVE IN YOURSELVES! ⠀ Cosplay means EVERYTHING is possible and you can be whoever you want to be, the way you want to be it! 💚⠀ ⠀ “ 𝗞𝗢𝗡𝗢-𝗗𝗜𝗢𝗢𝗢𝗢-𝗗𝗔𝗔𝗔𝗔!!! ”⠀ ⠀ • Photo by @muze 🙏🏼⠀ ⠀⠀ #DIO #JoJo #Cosplay #LeonChiro #DIOBrando #DIOcosplay #ZaWarudo #MakeUp #Menacing #Stand #StandProud #Wig #CellShading #jojosbizarreadventure #jojoreference #jojomemes #Stardust #StardustCrusaders

I’ve been accused of being partial to Kewpie Mayonnaise because of its retro packaging, but that’s only partially true. This is the best mayo I’ve ever had. Chalk it up to extra egg yolks and the MSG. It’s made in Japan, but you can buy a 3-pack on Amazon for just . If you are […]

If you live in Los Angeles, I highly recommend paying a visit to Japan House in Hollywood. It’s an event and cultural center created by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and features art exhibits, lectures, architecture and technology exhibits, and more. Its upcoming “Movie & Bites” event is a perfect reason to visit: Sunday, […]
Want to build your own website? Even for a modest personal site, it was once assumed you might wait for days or weeks while a web designer hammered through arcane code on your behalf. That all sounds a little ridiculous today. And if you had to thank one company for that, it would probably be […]
It’s a long road from a song in your head to a song on the charts – especially if you’re just learning to play. The good news is, anyone who’s willing to practice can make music. These online classes can make that process painless, with methods that can teach anyone guitar, piano or even the […]
