My Hero Academia features a large cast of characters each with their own unique outfits that compliment their Quirks, and one cosplayer expertly recreated one of the show’s most versatile heroines Momo Yaoyorozu.

Characters from the popular manga/anime have been a popular target for cosplayers to give their own spins on throughout the years. While some cosplayers tend to like the more villainous personalities of the show, others have been honing their craft recreating the students from Class 1-A.

Even though Momo can take a passive role at times, she’s always been a fan-favorite because of her heroic spirit and dazzling outfit that lets her best utilize her Quirk: Creation.

To recreate her design, cosplayer Rinnie Riot used an incredible blend of expert craftsmanship, persistence with her wig and a bit of editing to bring one of the most complete looks for Momo yet.

“Momo Yaoyorozu from Boku No Hero Academia cosplay,” Rinnie said. “Gimme this OP quirk so I can never leave my house. Costume is made by me! I didn’t think I could style the wig but here it is.”

Sticking close to the Everything Hero: Creati’s design, Rinnie suited up in the hero’s “Yaoyoreotard,” which would give her ample skin exposure to conveniently use her Quirk in a dicey situation.

MHA fans might appreciate the cosplay a bit more seeing as Rinnie also included Momo’s Yaoyoro-Belt around her waist to give the costume a bit more authenticity.

Speaking of, staying true to Momo’s Quirk, Rinnie posed with blade in one hand and a katana in the other which is still materializing from her body. The bit of Photoshop magic rounds out the shot of her cosplay by giving the costume a unique layer from the anime.

Rinnie’s cosplays have been a riot among fans

Rinnie has shown her prowess for creating cosplays for a long time, and it shows with her incredible backlog of impressive designs.

One such cosplay was inspired by popular MOBA League of Legends as Rinnie is seen in a really impressive K/DA Ahri suit complete with tails and Korean pop-star flair.

Rinnie is definitely one of the best around and fans can’t wait to see more cosplays after getting a look at her latest take on Momo.

Writer, Director, and Try Guys member Eugene Lee Yang has absolutely blown Avatar: The Last Airbender fans away with his flawless cosplays, recreating not just Azula but Zuko too.

Since rising to internet fame with his work on YouTube series ‘the Try Guys,’ Eugene Lee Yang has established himself as a creator in his own right, producing many hugely viral videos exploring LGBTQ+ and Asian-American identities.

Each year in what he describes as his ‘Asian Halloween Tradition,’ Eugene cosplays different Asian characters from popular movies, TV shows, books and more to celebrate different aspects of those cultures, and works alongside a team to flex their outstanding costume and makeup skills.

In the past, he’s recreated characters like Mulan, Magnus Bane from the Mortal Instruments Series, and many more dating back to Halloween of 2009 when he cosplayed Russell from the animated film UP.

But this year, Eugene and his talented team treated fans to not just one, but two Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplays, and they were both as fantastic as each other.

Eugene cosplays Zuko and Azula

First, in a post that at the time of writing has 99,000 likes, he recreated the banished prince from the Fire Nation, Zuko.

Eugene models the brilliant costume by Kinetic Cosplay perfectly, the bold oranges and reds of the fabric creating a vibrant fire-like glow, which combined with the mix of silk trims and various types of fabric give a perfectly dynamic edge to the look.

His makeup artist Arianna Blean has also reformed Zuko’s signature eye scar, the scar wax looking intricate enough to be realistic, but also with a slightly animated feel in keeping with the original art style.

To fans’ surprise, Eugene even pulled out a second Avatar look to celebrate Halloween this year, also having a go at one of the show’s most popular villains, Fire Nation princess Azula in beautiful photos taken by JD Renes.

The absolutely stunning images show the YouTube star surrounded by lightning, filling the images with a mesmerizing blue-white glow. The black and gold plates contribute to a powerful silhouette, with the wig by danekez sculpted perfectly to look like the original, even keeping with the gold hairpiece in the center of the head.

Eugene put both characters together in the same image in a post that gained 40,000 likes, and even participated in a TikTok trend where he wipes a mirror to switch between the two characters, injecting the video with electric personality.

His series of posts about the cosplays have garnered hundreds of thousands of likes all together, and has already got people excited about what Eugene will pull out of the bag next Halloween.
