Cosplayer pulls off the perfect Uraraka

In the series' plot, teenagers with superpowers called 'quirks' can apply to U.A. High – a premiere school for hero training. One of the most beloved characters is the kind Uraraka who can manipulate gravity itself.

Cosplayer 'yuru723' transformed into the My Hero Academia heroine, recreating her school's gym uniform. The stunning photo was a hit with her followers as it had over 5,000 likes on her social media account.

The talented artist looks identical to the animation, replicating her brown bob haircut to perfection. Striking Ochako's signature pose, Yuru threw both her hands up in the air while showing off her black and white wristbands.

Uraraka's alias is Uravity, as she can control gravity around her. While students that attend the school have an official hero uniform, they also wear blue and white tracksuits while they train to get stronger.

The talented artist shared more photos of her outfit on Instagram, and gave us a full view of the detail that went into creating the gym attire. She also flashed a peace sign which captures the character's bubbly personality.

In order to have the strength to fight villains, Ochako and her classmates have to work hard to become physically fit. In what could have been a scene straight from the anime, Yuru posed by the ocean while stretching in her workout uniform.
