Most of the anime centers on the class of 1-A at U.A. High, and their journey to becoming Pro Heroes. One of the most gifted students is Shoto. The teenager has the ability to control both fire and ice, and is immensely powerful when combining the two elements.


Cosplayer Brie ‘brietleguese‘ transformed into the hero, and shared her creative female take on Todoroki. In a selfie posted on Instagram, the artist showed off her flowing red and white hair, which demonstrates the two sides of the character’s fire and ice Quirk.

The student has a short haircut in the show, however Brie creatively made the signature locks long and running down her back. Using makeup, the cosplayer perfectly re-created his burn mark that hovers over his left eye.


Photographer ‘pittbuck‘ captured the artist in another shot, where she posed as the student in his blue hero uniform. However she cleverly turned his cargo shirt and pants into a dress. Artist ‘_kingrae_‘ perfectly recreated the student’s iconic burn scar using makeup and SFX.

Brietleguese gave fans an in-depth look at how she cleverly pulled off her take on the My Hero Academia character. The cosplayer used red makeup around her left eye to capture the fire side of Todoroki’s face. She even perfectly mirrored his icy blue eyes.

My Hero Academia originally made its 2014 debut as a manga in the popular Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. However its anime adaptation by studio Bones made it a worldwide phenomena.

The animated series wrapped up its fourth season arc in April. For everything we know so far about season five, check out our guide here. Those wanting to catch up can watch all episodes on Crunchyroll and Funimation.

Attack on Titan Season 4 is just around the corner, and a talented fan of the show has shown off their incredible take on the Survey Corps’ Mikasa Ackerman, bringing the character to life in stunning detail.

Since its debut back in 2013, fans across the globe have been enamored with the story of Eren Yeager and Mikasa, who become refugees when one of the giant humanoid creatures known as Titans breached the walls that protected humanity and killed Eren’s mother.


Determined to destroy the creatures who killed his family, Eren vowed to join the Scout Regiment and head out beyond the walls to kill every Titan he saw, and free humanity from the threat for good. Mikasa, who made a vow as a child to protect him always after he saved her life, quickly followed him, and the inseparable pair joined the war together.

Talented with a sword in her hand, and an expert at swinging through towns or forests using her ODM gear, Mikasa is one of the most feared and dangerous members of the Scouts. Despite her personality sometimes leading others to think she is cold or standoffish, Mikasa is a true fan-favorite, thanks to her incredible skill and her undying love for Eren. She’s so popular in fact, that she has become the most cosplayed character from the series.

Mikasa is one of the most powerful characters in the popular anime.

Cosplayer ‘jeisuzukii‘ brought the character to life in stunning detail, capturing the Scout’s black hair perfectly, and making sure to wear the iconic red scarf that she is rarely seen without, and has become a staple of any good Mikasa cosplay.

She is also wearing the recognizable brown leather jacket that anyone who is part of the Survey Corps wears, complete with the Scouts’ recognizable logo, a pair of white and blue wings known as the ‘Wings of Freedom,’ a symbol of hope that they make escape the tyranny of the Titans.

The cosplay is truly stunning and looks like it was lifted straight out of the anime. If a live-action Attack on Titan was ever commissioned, it would be no surprise if it looked exactly like this.


Attack on Titan’s third season ended with a blockbuster revelation about the origin of the Titans and the war that the Scouts have waged for hundreds of years, leaving fans desperately waiting for the final season of the show.

The good news is that the fourth season of the anime is still set in fall 2020, with the teaser trailer released in late May.
