Photographer Hilda Glitz captures the brilliance of cosplayer Craxus Cosplay while the artist renders anime’s physics in an original Dora x Jojo pose.
Photographer Hilda Glitz of The 86th Floor shared a clip of Craxus Cosplay in a mashup with Dora from the kids’ TV program Dora the Explorer, and an original character from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure at Japan Expo Paris 2022.
The Reddit post features the cosplayer in a classic pose from the Jojo series — a back-bending pose that is almost impossible to achieve outside the anime world. This costume is a re-creation of the character’s outfit however, it has the addition of a twist. It features a pink crop top that exposes the real muscle, orange shorts and belts that show toned thighs, and calves yellow socks, as well as white sneakers. Dora’s signature beaded bracelet is also featured. Craxus shoots a gun toward the camera before falling backward in the physics-defying position that has become an ongoing subject of memes and Tik-Tok space.
