Jotaro Kujo is probably the Joestar member who has garnered the most coverage in both the anime and the manga of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. The wielder of the Stand Star Platinum and the man who finally managed to send Dio Brando to his grave, fans continue to bring Jotaro to life through fan art, through fan merchandise, and of course, through cosplay. Now, one dedicated and clever fan has managed to take every day household to recreate the protagonist of Stardust Crusaders to amazing effect!
LostCostCosplay shared his amazing recreation of Jotaro Kujo, managing to ingeniously create the look and fashion of the third Joestar to appear in the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure franchise, even with his strange hat that appears to be somehow linked to his hair:
The fashion of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is as strange as the characters and Stands that go along with it. An anime that is completely unique from everything else that has come before it, JoJo can be an easy sell for anime fans looking to experience a story and aesthetic that cannot be found anywhere else.
Jotaro had the honor of appearing frequently following his initial season of Stardust Crusaders, acting as a supporting character in Diamond Is Unbreakable, appearing briefly in Golden Wind, and having a heavy role in Stone Ocean. While the sixth season of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, titled Stone Ocean, hasn't been confirmed as of yet, the story of Jotaro's daughter Jolyne is definitely one that is worth checking out. Taking place in a maximum security prison in Florida, USA, it definitely gives JoJo fans a brand new locale to discover and learn about!
What do you think of this hilarious "Low cost cosplay" that reinterprets Jotaro Kujo in a brand new way? What other anime characters would you like to see receive a "low cost" makeover?
