Many praised Itawasa for such a magical transformation, with some commending her for her confidence to bare it all to the public, reports Soranews24.
According to Itawasa, the photo of her on the left was taken by her mother as she was having a cup of coffee in the morning. She had just woken up and was finishing her pre-makeup skincare routine.
“It’s so rare to see a cosplayer without makeup! I have nothing but praise for her,” a commenter wrote.
“I always thought I didn’t have the looks to cosplay but this has given me the confidence to give it a try. Thank you!” another noted.
“Omg her makeup-free skin is gorgeous! What’s her secret?” a netizen wondered.
“She is glowing in that before image,” chimed in another.
“Well done for putting it all out there. Definitely following her and supporting her from now on!” another Twitter user exclaimed.
