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.

It later became a TV series, too, and there’s a lot more about it here.

That’s actually pretty good.

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
