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.

A talented cosplayer brought Steins;Gate protagonist Kurisu Makise to life. The talented artist made waves on Instagram after transforming into the red-haired scientist. 

While Steins;Gate originally made its debut as a visual novel in 2009, the series’ animated adaptation in 2011 is considered one of the best animes of all time. Its complex sci-fi narrative and diverse cast of characters has connected with viewers around the world.

A cosplayer showed her love for the time travel story by transforming into protagonist Kurisu Makise. The artist’s true-to-life take on the scientist is so perfect, it’s almost as if the heroine has changed world lines and warped out of the screen.

The genius scientist is one of the main protagonists in the 2011 anime.

Steins:Gate cosplayer wows as perfect Kurisu Makise

The anime opens with mad scientist Rintarou Okabe discovering a time anomaly involving physicist Kurisu. The heroine eventually joins the protagonist’s makeshift lab, where they discover time travel using a microwave machine and a cellphone. 

Cosplayer Leza ‘someonefromrussia’ made waves on Instagram after sharing her perfect re-creation of the red-haired scientist. Photographer ‘dobrolis’ captured the artist posing in the character’s signature outfit which consists of a white shirt, red tie, and black shorts.

The cosplayer showed off the incredible details of her outfit while mirroring a scene from the show where Makise holds a soda drink hilariously called DK Pepper. She even portrayed the heroine’s quirky sense of fashion by wearing her beige jacket around her elbows.

Leza also teamed up with fellow cosplayer ‘dan.aligieri2011’ who looks like the real life version of Okabe. The duo posed back-to-back for photographer ‘kmitenkova’, who shot them re-creating the anime’s iconic opening sequence.

Despite releasing over a decade ago, Steins;Gate is still incredibly popular and influential. The show is often ranked as one of the top best animes of all time by critics and fans.

The franchise was so beloved that it got a second season over seven years later called “Zero”. Fans can catch all episodes now on streaming services Crunchyroll and Funimation.
