A talented My Hero Academia cosplayer went viral after she brought protagonist Izuku Midoriya to life with a female twist. The artist’s adorable costume will melt fans’ hearts.

Very few animes have rocked the world like My Hero Academia has. Ever since its 2016 debut, the series about a high school that trains teenagers with powers called ‘quirks’ has become a worldwide phenomena.

Cosplayer Brooklyn ‘honeyrabbiit‘ shared her take on the MHA protagonist, and stunned with her incredibly detailed costume. Photographer ‘javier_perez_photography‘ captured her posing as the anime hero.

In the series, Izuku’s superhero name is Deku, and initially his quirk is so strong that he can only channel it through a single finger – which the artist perfectly depicts.

Today is Deku's Birthday!! ???? Deku has always been such an impactful character to me, and will always be dear to my heart. I relate to him a lot, and he pushed me more to get back into cosplay. So happy to share the cancer solidarity with him (my birthday being in July too), and super excited to see more of his journey! . . .

Brooklyn’s spin on the character is adorable, capturing his messy green hair with a red ribbon on top. In another shot, fans get a full glimpse of her outfit, and it’s incredibly faithful to the show.

The cosplayer created his green and black trimmed bodysuit, as well as his signature respirator that he wears around his neck. She even nailed his belt pouches, and iconic red shoes.

The artist shared more photos of her cosplay on Instagram, and went viral with over 5k likes. In what could have been an image from out of the manga, Brooklyn channels Izuku Midoriya getting ready to battle.

A My Hero Academia cosplayer went viral on social media after giving Fat Gum a new look. The artist’s take on Taishiro Toyomitsu will take fans’ breath away.

My Hero Academia has become a cultural phenomena since its debut in 2016. Viewers around the world can’t get enough of its story about a high school that trains teenagers with powers called quirks.

One of the more unique characters in the series is Fat Gum. The character can absorb anything into his own body fat. Prolific cosplayer Sarah ‘HendoArt’ Hendo captured the hero’s incredibly epic Season 4 look with a twist.

My Hero Academia cosplayer’s Fat Gum female twist

While in most of the series, Fat Gum is large, the character can burn off his weight when absorbing powers from foes. In the Season 4 episode Red Riot, the pro hero sheds his fat and becomes ripped after defeating Hekiji and Kendo.

Cosplayer HendoArt captured his new look with an insanely accurate costume which she posted on Twitter on October 13. Referencing the epic battle, the artist captioned her pictures with “Are you the spear or the shield?”

Sarah absolutely nailed the character’s costume, perfectly re-creating his black mask and signature yellow and white jacket which has the letters FG written across it. She even created his orange gloves with metal studs on each knuckle.

Her faithful re-creation of Taishiro Toyomitsu is full of details, such as the torn black shirt which the pro hero ripped after burning off all his body fat. Just like in the series, she also has her yellow hoodie up.

In another shot posted to Instagram, the cosplayer posed as the BMI hero in a selfie. In this shot, the artist took off her mask which the character briefly does in My Hero Academia after sustaining heavy damage. 

This is easily one of the best takes we’ve seen on the hero. Hendo accurately captured the character’s epic transformation after his battle with the Shield and Spear.
