Cosplayer defies gravity as Ochako Uraraka

Ochako is a student of class 1-A at U.A. High – the premiere school for training the next generation of heroes. The kind hearted heroine’s quirk is called ‘Zero Gravity’ and she is able to make anything she touches become weightless.

Cosplayer '_sarenji_' became the character’s alter ego ‘Uravity’ with a stunning outfit. She captured Uraraka’s look by accurately mimicking her rosy cheeks using blush, and re-created her striking brown eyes with contact lenses from 'uniqso.'

The artist also nailed the heroine’s signature hairstyle, faithfully mirroring her iconic short brown bob. The whole thing is tied together as she poses in the character’s uniform.
