Photographer Hilda Glitz captures the brilliance of cosplayer Craxus Cosplay as he renders anime physics into the original Dora x Jojo pose.
Photographer Hilda Glitz of The 86th Floor posted a video of Craxus Cosplay as a mashup of Dora from the children’s TV show Dora the Explorer, and an original character from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure at Japan Expo Paris 2022.
The post on Reddit showcases the cosplayer in an iconic pose from the Jojo series. This technique of back bending is almost impossible to perform outside of the world of anime. The costume is a replica of the adventurer’s outfit with the addition of A pink crop top that exposes real and drawn-on muscles, an orange pair of shorts, a belt that exposes toned calves and thighs as well as white socks, yellow socks shoes, and her signature bracelet with beads. Craxus points a finger gun at the camera before dropping back into the physics-defying pose which has been a subject of memes and Tik-Tok space.
