My Hero Academia cosplayer charges into battle as Momo Yaoyorozu

by Michael Gwilliam


Cosplayer 'Jane April Fools' crafted a stunning outfit for her take on My Hero Academia’s Momo Yaoyorozu.

In a series of photos, the California-based model showed off how her hero costume evolved from Anime Expo 2019 to February 2020.

Seen in her earlier pictures, Jane admitted she still had some work to do in order to tune the outfit. While she had Momo’s general look down, she still needed to get her hair and belts modified to fully realize the character.


“I’m just going to call this ‘Fitness Momo’ until I finish her,” she captioned one of her photos. It was a good fit, as the outfit looked more like something the character would wear to the gym than in actual combat.

By the time Anime Los Angeles rolled around, the cosplayer had completed much more of the outfit, crafting Momo's utility belt and chest clasp. Additionally, she now had a staff at her disposal.

In a video posted to Instagram, Jane twirled her weapon and posed. In the anime, Momo is skilled at bojutsu, which is a staff-based martial art.


Her newest photo, however, is probably her best yet. The outfit looks just about complete with the belts, bo staff and hair perfectly matching the hero's iconic design.

Fans were certainly impressed with the end result. One even replied that she was, “the best Momo out there.”

In addition to her Momo cosplay, Jane has also dressed up as DC Comics’ Harley Quinn from the 'Suicide Squad' and 'Birds of Prey' movies. She’s also cosplayed as Super Girl, Pokemon’s Officer Jenny, Bulma from Dragon Ball and Link from The Legend of Zelda.


Amusingly, in her Bulma cosplay, she even managed to turn her dog into Vegeta. Now that’s some dedication!

With so many characters under her belt, it’s anyone’s guess who the model will be cosplaying as next.
