A talented cosplayer wowed fans at New York Comic Con 2019 with her incredible take on Camie Utsushimi from popular anime series My Hero Academia.

New York Comic Con 2019 was held at the Javits Center in NY from October 3 through October 6, and conventions like these are an absolute goldmine for cosplays as people attend dressed up as their favorite characters.

Popular female cosplayer Isabel ‘Luxlo’ attended the event as a character from the hit series My Hero Academia, and turned heads with her amazing take on Camie Utsushimi.

An incredible Camie outfit

While the Canadian is an amazing cosplayer in her own right, YouTuber and videographer ‘Mineralblu’ caught the eyes of many MHA fans by including her outfit in their NYCC video.

In the video, Luxlo is seen walking towards the camera dressed as Camie, and really nails her cool composure and sultry vibes – it’s almost like the character has truly come to life, and stepped out of the TV show itself.

While the convention was in October, Luxlo also shared her cosplay to her Instagram account, providing fans with a more in-depth look into her hero outfit.

She’s nailed Camie’s cap spot on, as well as her skin-tight catsuit costume that the heroine uses when in training to fight crime. The collar around her neck just seals in the look, and ties everything together perfectly.

Camie first appeared in My Hero Academia in Season 3, and is a second-year student at  Shiketsu High School with her Glamour quirk. Like main protagonist Izuku ‘Deku’ Midoriya who studies at U.A. High, she’s also in training to become a Pro Hero.

At the time of writing, the series is currently in its fourth season, with episodes airing weekly on both Crunchyroll and Funimation – the latter of which receiving simulcast.

In My Hero Academia, there’s a few villains to choose from, but one of the more popular ones is Dabi. We all have a little villain inside of us, and cosplayer ‘kirapika’ has brought it out with a fiery cosplay of the Vanguard Action Squad leader.

Every good story has to have a villain or two. There’s no shortage of them in My Hero Academia either, given the tensions between the League of Villains and the various hero agencies around Japan.

The fiery Dabi is definitely up there with one of the most powerful weapons the League of Villains has at their disposal. The leader of the Vanguard Action Squad is classified as an A-Rank Villain, and he’s got the power to match.

Dabi is one of My Hero Academia’s most iconic villains.

With a penchant of setting the world ablaze, the patched-up antagonist is yet another iconic character design from the hit franchise. Kirapika has brought Dabi to life in one of their latest cosplays though, and he’s got everything down pat.

It’s easy enough to say that Dabi’s design is simple to pull off, but you really notice a good one when you see it. It’s the small details, from the detailing on the jacket, to the light blue currents through Kirapika’s hair, that really makes this Dabi cosplay shine.

Kirapika didn’t go as far as patchworking their own body like Dabi, but the ‘staples’ and bodypaint certainly does the trick of fitting the character’s design.

While Kirapika admitted My Hero Academia isn’t their favorite show, they still “really enjoy watching and reading it.”

“I get to really love some of the characters and Dabi is one of my [favourite] ones. I really wanted to cosplay him [for] a long time now,” they said on an Instagram post.

The cosplay is just the beginning for Kirapika’s journeys through the My Hero Academia universe. It was long requested by their fans, and they’re not done yet, as they’re working on finessing their current Dabi design as well as others.

“I’m not happy with the final look, a lot of improvement needs to be done. I’m gonna try to improve him as much as I can to see if I can become comfortable with this cosplay one day or not.”
