Fans of Japanese music will likely recognize the name Sayaka Kanda: not only has she had success as a singer, she’s also been onstage in plays and musicals for more than a decade. She’s now taken one of her musical characters to Instagram, and fans are loving it.

A recent post on her Instagram shows that she’s not left the character behind, as she’s returned with a Junko cosplay of her own:
Kanda is also notable for being the daughter of “eternal idol” Seiko Matsuda, but has been busy growing a fan base of her own. Her credits also include Anna in the Japanese dub of Frozen and a role in the movie series Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love.
