The star of My Hero Academia has been remade by various cosplayers, but a unique take for a genderbent design perfectly reimagines Deku in a new light.

Even as the wide-eyed character is already a favorite among anime fans, the cosplay community keeps finding ways to bring fresh takes that expertly plays with the features seen on thep popular protagonist.

The latest being from cosplayer ‘Mochi Chuu’ who took some creative liberties with Izuku Midoriya’s hero costume which gave the outfit an entirely different impact – transforming Deku’s straightforward design into something much more epic.

One of the most prominent alterations from the cosplay lies in the long and flowing hair that extends past Midoriya’s regular bushy head topped off by a black-bowed ribbon.

Though he has normal features for MHA’s character design standards, this version of the main hero makes key alterations that stand out compared to the original design.

Mochi Chuu got rid of the typical track jumpsuit that he wears as a coverall below his hero gear. Now there’s more personality infused with Deku’s look with a crop top designed to mirror the anime character’s look.

The imposing red utility belt that sits securely on the anime character’s waist has been scaled down to a ribbon that compliments the rest of the suit’s sleek style.

Further changes come in the form of her layered skirt with accompanying thigh-high socks to accommodate her knee pads and leg braces.

Although he rarely wears his mask anymore, Mochi Chuu was able to incorporate the hoodie with attached ears that really started to give the whole design its own flair.

Apart from that and the respirator around the neck, almost everything on Deku’s series design has been spruced up and reshaped to naturally fit on a female version of the hero.

There’s been a ton of alternate takes for classic character designs from the MHA fan base, and this one is didn’t hold back with its creative blend of elements.

As the series develops and grows its fan base, there are bound to be cosplays like Mochi Chuus’ that pushes the envelope for great My Hero Academia costumes.

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
