A talented cosplayer shared her incredible take on Fire Force’s Tamaki Kotatsu, bringing the Company 8 firefighter to life with a scorching outfit.

Fire Force is one of the breakout animes of 2019 next to Demon Slayer as its story about a superhuman firefighting squad who take on supernatural entities called ‘infernals’ has made for compelling entertainment.

A popular cosplayer brought to life one of the members of Company 8, Tamaki Kotatsu, and transformed into the heroine with a true-to-life costume that will have fans seeing double.

The series revolves around the fire fighting Company 8 – a group of flame users who are tasked with tackling the Spontaneous Human Combustion phenomena which is turning humans into demon-like entities known as infernals.

Cosplayer Alex ‘pockythief‘ shared her incredibly accurate portrayal of Tamaki on social media, recreating her signature black and blue firefighter uniform.

The popular heroine has striking golden eyes and long black hair in twin ponytails, which the talented artist captured with her faithful outfit that brings the character to life.

In the series, it’s revealed that Tamaki is a Third Generation survivor of spontaneous combustion, and as a result, has adapted to it and learned to control her powers.

Pocky showed off more of her cosplay on Instagram, giving us a glimpse at the intricate detail that went into creating the outfit from the show, from the silver reflective tape on her arms to her gloves.

The talented artist emulated the anime character to perfection, as in the series the firefighter wears her jacket open, exposing her skin, while also wearing a brace around her neck for protection.

Fire Force originally debuted as a manga back in 2015, although it exploded in popularity and found worldwide success last year with its anime adaptation by David Production.

The breakout series can currently be watched on Funimation or Crunchyroll, as the entire first season consisting of 24 episodes has finished airing.

My Hero Academia’s Izuku Midoriya a.k.a. Deku has been recreated perfectly by cosplayer Lorentz iWood, producing both casual and hero looks for the fan-favorite character.

One anime that seems to be an unlimited source of cosplay inspiration is My Hero Academia. The show began airing in 2016, adapted from a manga that was published prior, and since then has gone on to secure a huge fanbase.

The anime features a host of distinct characters who each have their own abilities, referred to as Quirks in the show. The Quirks dictate what abilities certain people have, and it often is tied into aspects of their personality and aesthetic.

However Izuku Midoriya did not originally have a Quirk, something that ended up getting him bullied. Despite his lack of ability, he still dreamed of becoming a professional hero, with the anime following his journey alongside a host of other characters.

One cosplayer who recreated Izuku’s iconic look was Lorentz iWood, who took on the challenge of creating a range of different looks for the popular character.

In Deku’s hero look, Lorentz wears his green paneled jumpsuit with darker green strips running down the arms and in geometric formations on the torso. The tops of the sturdy green boots can be seen peeking over his knees, and contrast the chunky red utility belt and stark white gloves perfectly.

The shaggy green hair and lightly freckled face are a great match for Izuku, and he completed the look with a can of Twisted Tea, a reference to the viral meme which commenters under the cosplay were loving.

Lorentz also showed off a more casual Izuku look with a bold red hoodie and ripped jeans – though he still carried over the air of coolness to both looks. The photos captured by Richard Arcel are stunning, and perfectly showcase the fantastic costume along with the vivid backdrops.
