Cosplayer Gajda ‘son_kumori‘ Arnold shared his jaw dropping My Hero Academia outfit on social media, transforming into the character with perfect accuracy with a true-to-life photograph.

Yamada infamously sports yellow spiked hair that is blown back, thin eyebrows that curve up up at the ends, and his pointy facial hair, which the talented artist recreated with the faithful costume.

Gajda shared more photos on his Instagram of the cosplay, giving us a full glimpse at his detailed outfit, from his headphones, to the black leather jacket with gold shoulder pads.  He also recreated the multi-directional speaker that the anime character wears around his neck.

In the show, the Pro Hero boasts a radio-presenter personality, and is always excited to get others amped up, which the talented artist perfectly portrays with his spot-on pose of the U.A. faculty member.

Yamada’s quirk is the ability to raise his voice to ear-bleeding levels, and the talented artist mimicked a scene of him using his power with special effects, which makes the character look like he jumped from right out of the animation.

Channeling the cutthroat’s personality, she grabs the tip of her fur cap while holding their weapon by her side. This is easily one of the best takes we’ve ever seen of the Heart Pirate.
