My Hero Academia follows the story of Izuku Midoriya, and an incredibly talented cosplayer has given the anime’s main character Deku an amazing female twist with her perfect recreation.

Since it’s debut back in 2016, My Hero Academia has captured the hearts and imaginations of viewers across the world, as audiences became infatuated with the story of Izuku Midoriya, a young man born without superpowers who inherits a quirk from his hero All Might.

With his newfound powers, Deku enrols in U.A. High School to learn how to control One For All and become the world’s greatest professional hero, meeting tons of incredible talented heroes along the way — and some dangerous villains too.

While Deku may be smaller and lack the ability to control his quirk like his fellow classmates, his heart and determination have made him and the show unbelievably popular, with Midoriya quickly becoming one of anime’s most recognizable characters.

Cosplayer ‘lil_leahbee’ shared her adorable take on Deku, putting an incredible female twist on the character, pushing the iconic green hair into a ponytail with bangs falling either side of her face.

While it may be a gender-swapped version of Izuku, it’s instantly recognizable, complete with metal mask hanging around her neck, white gloves, and the recognizable green bodysuit that he wears when heading into battle.

My Hero Academia originally made its debut as a manga in 2014, although it truly exploded in popularity with its anime adaption by studio Bones.

Anyone looking to see what all the hype is about can jump into the show right now. All episodes can be watched on streaming services Crunchyroll and Funimation. The show’s fifth season has been confirmed, but likely won’t be released until 2021.

A Demon Slayer cosplayer has metamorphosed into Shinobu Kochu and spread her wings in an elegant and well-detailed outfit that looks as real as it gets.

Shinobu Kocho is one of the standout characters in Demon Slayer. On the surface, she seems like a small, gentle, and soft-spoken angel with a calm and composed demeanor. But don’t let her size and appearance fool you. Shinobu Kocho is an incredibly powerful Demon Slayer. 

Beneath her skin is an immense and burning hatred towards demons, one which almost consumed her in the past. It started when she lost her beloved sister to the demons and sought revenge on them ever since.

It’s the reason Shinobu Kocho became a Demon Slayer in the first place.

Shinobu Kocho is a powerful, quick, and deadly swordsman. However, she’s also a medical expert and a master in pharmacology. To make matters worse for her opponents, she coats her weapon with poison and can perform ‘Insect Breathing.’

It’s easy to see why she’s a fan-favorite among Demon Slayer cosplayers. But although there are many amazing Shinobu Kocho cosplays, a Russian cosplayer named dabllmi has taken it to a whole new level.

Очень не запланированный фотосет вылился в эту потрясающую фотографию. 🦋 В конце июля я писала, что август принесёт мне много радости и новых знакомств. Вот знакомство с @bemycosplaymuse стало как раз этим событием. На самом деле я ещё долго буду вспоминать этот август и ставить его в пример, той жизни, которую я хочу. Работать на любимой работе, заниматься тем, что нравится, общаться с людьми, которым действительно есть дело до тебя. Вот что потрясающе. Помощник на фотосессии @zefirka_natsuki огромное спасибо за помощь 💕😌 #鬼滅の刃コスプレ #鬼滅 #鬼殺隊 #鬼滅の刀 #鬼滅の刃コスプレ #鬼滅の刃コスプレ #胡蝶しのぶ #kimetsunoyaiba #demonslayer #demonslayercosplay #kimetsunoyaibacosplay #冨岡義勇 #shinobukocho #shinobukochocosplay #cosplaygirls #kawaii #cutecosplay #cosplayrussia #otaku #moe #geekcosplay

There’s an incredible amount of detail in her cosplay. It permeates everything from her kimono, hair, and sandals to the sword itself. The shades and patterns are all on-point, and it really looks like Shinobu Kocho herself has come to life.

Combined with high-quality photography that includes a moon and leaves in the background and pink butterflies in the foreground, this cosplay is about as flawless as they come.

If you want to get a closer look at the outfit, you can swipe over to a second picture. The perfection of her kimono shine through even more. All in all, it was an unbelievable cosplay and one that many will mesmerize many Demon Slayer fans. 

If you’re like us and still desperately waiting for Demon Slayer Season 2, it seems like it’s still a while away. But in the meantime, there’s no harm in cosplaying your favorite characters and bringing them to life.
