Spanish cosplayer ‘Anhyra’ blew fans away with her spot-on Maya cosplay, the fan-favorite character from the Borderlands series.

For many people, cosplays can be pretty hit or miss but in this case, it’s hard to not come away impressed with how much work was done.

Anhyra tried her hand at a Maya cosplay and completely knocked it out of the park with her extreme attention to detail and could even pass as the real thing at first glance.

Borderlands is a hard series to get good cosplays from due to the cel-shaded graphics style which is what makes someone pulling it off even more amazing.

This cosplayer was able to take one of the hardest characters to nail in Maya and deliver a near-perfect version of the popular character. 

For Borderlands, the outfit is just the first part of getting the cosplay down, as you’ll also have to make sure everything else looks the part too, and Anhyra delivered in a big way.

Everything from the hair, tattoos, clothes, and even cel-shaded skin is done perfectly so let’s just get down to it and take a look.

Anhyra has been doing cosplays since 2013 and explains that she likes making crafts and painting, and cosplay is able to take the two passions and blend them together.

On top of this, she creates tutorials and does workshops for others to learn how to take their first steps into the world of cosplay.

For fans of the Borderlands series, they will know all about Maya. She was a playable character in Borderlands 2 as Siren, and she makes an appearance in the third entry, but she’s just an NPC this time around.

She’s a pretty deep character and you can read much more about her in her Fandom entry. Just be aware that you might be running into a bunch of spoilers if you do so.


My Hero Academia cosplayer hits a Comet Home Run as Ochaco Uraraka

Ochaco Uraraka is one of the most charming characters in My Hero Academia, but even though she’s a popular pick in the cosplay community, it’s hard to find an outfit that looks as awesome as this one.

Ochaco Uraraka was first introduced in the third episode of My Hero Academia, and fans have loved her ever since. Generally, she’s upbeat, positive, laid-back, and a little air-headed at times.

However, she can be extremely determined and focused at times, and hates being underestimated. Plus, she has an incredible quirk known as ‘Zero Gravity.’ It lets her make specific targets immune to the effects of gravity and can be used in a variety of ways. 

Uraraka is a favorite among fans due to her sweet personality.

Ochaco’s hero costume is made up of a black bodysuit with a pink design down the middle. It also has two black circles on her chest, a black rectangle below her waist, and two pink patches over her shoulders. She also wears pink armbands, a choker, a belt, wrist guards, and knee-high boots.

It’s one of the most iconic hero costumes in the show, and cosplayers love re-creating it as authentically as they can. However, a cosplayer named honeyrabbiit brought it to life in the most incredible way.

The picture of honeyrabbiit’s cosplay has already generated more than 20,000 likes, which is insane. The numbers keep on rising. She also made it herself, except for the wig, which was made by bep.cosplays.

In fact, it was so well-received, she posed in it again alongside bep.cosplays, who also happened to be wearing an awesome Katsuki Bakugo costume. “All I remember is that I was freezing and I took a hot bath after this shoot,” she said.

The second picture also has pulled more than 10,000 likes. It seems like My Hero Academia fans know an incredible cosplay when they see it, and won’t hesitate to pour in with support.

Of course, the epic photography from arcane_shutter in both shots was a nice touch, too. If we’ve learned anything from the show, it’s that a team effort can go a long way. The success of this honeyrabbiit’s cosplay is a good example of that.
