Muscular Cosplayer Loses Followers Every Time He Posts Himself Dressed As Sailor Moon on Instagram

Leo Bane, a muscular French cosplayer, has been consistently losing followers on Instagram each time he posts a photo of himself wearing a “Sailor Moon” costume.

Bane’s typical go-to for his cosplays are manly characters with a brutish, bulky physique. Check this one out for example – his own take on “The Elder Scroll V: Skyrim” main character, the Dragonborn.

In another photoshoot, Bane went all out as Kratos from the hit PlayStation franchise “God of War.”

Here’s a side-by-side comparison without and with his Kratos makeup.

“Duke Nukem” anyone?

If you’re a big fan of “Game of Thrones,” you might like his cosplay of Khal Drogo.

Bane’s Hercules is also pretty spot on.

His fans seemingly liked his portrayal of Udyr from the Massively Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game “League of Legends.”

However, some of his fans did not exactly like his costume for the hit Japanese anime series “Sailor Moon,” specifically Sailor Neptune, SoraNews24 reported.

I noticed that when I post a pic of this costume, each time, I’m losing some followers.. You know what? I will continue on this way because that’s mean I’m losing some closed minded people and I only need crazy badass and open minded spartans in my phalanx,” Leo Bane wrote in his Instagram post.

Even though he is losing followers on Instagram, Leo Bane continues to add more pictures of him dressed as Sailor Neptune.

According to the report, while some are walking away as his followers on the social media platform, there are people who are praising the cosplayer for his firm stand by portraying the character he wants to cosplay as.

Keep slaying, Bane!
