My Hero Academia’s All Might was brought to life by a bodybuilder’s incredible cosplay. The artist gave the #1 Pro character a female twist that is truly out of this world.

My Hero Academia’s 2016 anime debut sent shockwaves in the medium, as its story about a high school that trains students with powers called ‘quirks’ has taken the world by storm.

A talented cosplayer has used her bodybuilding career to bring the show’s #1 Hero All Might to life like you’ve never seen before. Her perfect re-creation will have you seeing double.

The 2016 hero anime has become a smash hit around the world.

In the show, superpowers have been integrated into society, and heroes use their skills to protect citizens from villains that abuse their talent. However, at the very top stands All Might who is a beacon for justice and peace.

Cosplayer ‘Kristina Moser‘ shared her jaw dropping take on social media, and looks just like the MHA teacher. Flexing her muscles, she re-created the Pro Hero’s super strength.

Photographer ‘courtex.studios‘ captured her as she struck the character’s signature pose from the series. The artist collaborated with ‘polyxenastorm‘ who made the accurate costume.

The bodybuilder shared more photos of her transformation into All Might, and gave us a better glimpse at the amount of detail that went into capturing his look.

Cleverly, the cosplay alters the hero’s iconic costume into a leotard style which lets Kristin show off her muscles. She also put a twist on his blonde locks with its length, while staying faithful with his crazy hair tufts that point to the air.

Teaming up with another cosplayer who portrayed the show’s protagonist Izuku Midoriya, the two artists perfectly nailed their MHA costumes, giving a fresh take on the beloved heroes.

Writer, Director, and Try Guys member Eugene Lee Yang has absolutely blown Avatar: The Last Airbender fans away with his flawless cosplays, recreating not just Azula but Zuko too.

Since rising to internet fame with his work on YouTube series ‘the Try Guys,’ Eugene Lee Yang has established himself as a creator in his own right, producing many hugely viral videos exploring LGBTQ+ and Asian-American identities.

Each year in what he describes as his ‘Asian Halloween Tradition,’ Eugene cosplays different Asian characters from popular movies, TV shows, books and more to celebrate different aspects of those cultures, and works alongside a team to flex their outstanding costume and makeup skills.

In the past, he’s recreated characters like Mulan, Magnus Bane from the Mortal Instruments Series, and many more dating back to Halloween of 2009 when he cosplayed Russell from the animated film UP.

But this year, Eugene and his talented team treated fans to not just one, but two Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplays, and they were both as fantastic as each other.

Eugene cosplays Zuko and Azula

First, in a post that at the time of writing has 99,000 likes, he recreated the banished prince from the Fire Nation, Zuko.

Eugene models the brilliant costume by Kinetic Cosplay perfectly, the bold oranges and reds of the fabric creating a vibrant fire-like glow, which combined with the mix of silk trims and various types of fabric give a perfectly dynamic edge to the look.

His makeup artist Arianna Blean has also reformed Zuko’s signature eye scar, the scar wax looking intricate enough to be realistic, but also with a slightly animated feel in keeping with the original art style.

To fans’ surprise, Eugene even pulled out a second Avatar look to celebrate Halloween this year, also having a go at one of the show’s most popular villains, Fire Nation princess Azula in beautiful photos taken by JD Renes.

The absolutely stunning images show the YouTube star surrounded by lightning, filling the images with a mesmerizing blue-white glow. The black and gold plates contribute to a powerful silhouette, with the wig by danekez sculpted perfectly to look like the original, even keeping with the gold hairpiece in the center of the head.

Eugene put both characters together in the same image in a post that gained 40,000 likes, and even participated in a TikTok trend where he wipes a mirror to switch between the two characters, injecting the video with electric personality.

His series of posts about the cosplays have garnered hundreds of thousands of likes all together, and has already got people excited about what Eugene will pull out of the bag next Halloween.
