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.

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.

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
