A talented cosplayer shared her chilling take on My Hero Academia’s shape-shifting antagonist Himiko Toga, and it is so accurate that it will give you nightmares.
My Hero Academia first released in 2014 in Japan as a popular manga, but became a worldwide phenomenon when its anime adaption aired two years later in 2016.
The animation takes place in a world where humans have evolved to have super-powers called ‘quirks,’ and heroes are integrated into society to protect the innocent from those who use their powers for evil.
A talented cosplayer shared her take on one of the series’ most popular antagonists – the wickedly psychotic Himiko Toga – and her costume is mind-blowingly accurate.
Cosplayer terrifies with real-life Himiko Toga
The popular antagonist was first introduced in the second season arc as she joins the League of Villains with her creepy quirk of being able to shapeshift into anyone.
Cosplayer ‘tsukuyimi‘ showed off her costume for the anime character on Instagram, and wowed her followers with a terrifying take on the villain that brings her to life.
Not only does she capture the antagonist’s look with her blonde disheveled hair buns, she perfectly recreates her pose from the show with her striking yellow eyes turning inward, and her tongue hanging out in a fit of mania.
One of the most disturbing aspects of the anime villain is that she can shapeshift into anyone whose blood she consumes, making her a deadly opponent who can fool anyone.
The psychotic villain is also often seen with blood caked on her face, and stained around her costume as a result of her power, which the talented cosplayer mirrored to a chilling effect.
Tsukuyimi has dressed up as several characters from series as well as other anime, and has amassed over 10,700 followers with her incredible cosplay on Instagram.

My Hero Academia is currently on it’s fourth season as it follows Izuku Midoriya and his classmates on their journey to become pro heroes who can defend the innocent against deadly threats.
The show is being simulcast for the first time in its run, meaning English fans get the dub live at the same time as the Japanese release, and it can be watched on Funimation and Crunchyroll every Saturday.
