In a May 20 tweet, Katz revealed one of many posts to come from her latest cosplay featuring everything from the villain’s daytime outfit to her villainous gear in an incredible lewd take for the character.

BonesToga is one of the shows more disturbing characters.

Toga’s outfit in the anime shows her in what would appear as a normal Japanese school-girl attire, but when it’s time to terrorize U.A. High School students she puts her blood-pumping gear over her simple clothes.

With that in mind, the cosplayer nailed the under outfit with over-the-knee socks and the long sleeve sweater Toga’s known for but ramped up the costume by featuring the menacing headgear and backpack to drain her victim’s blood.

“Isn’t blood cute,” Katz said in her cosplay reveal. “I love it so much. I’m obsessed with My Hero Academia lately so a bazillion Himiko Toga cosplay photos are on the way.”

Her outfit was met with instant praise from fans around Twitter, and even teased more to come since Toga is her “favorite in the series!”

It isn’t the first time Katz has cosplayed as a character from MHA, in a May 18 clip she teased her upcoming Deku outfit in a hilarious lip-sync video dressed as the anime’s main character.

Her take on X-Men’s Rogue was basically a head to toe remake of the embattled mutant complete with her leather jacket with the iconic yellow and green spandex.

While those cosplays have been terrific, Katz looks right at home as the sinister Toga leaving My Hero Academia fans wanting more.
