Ochako Uraraka from the popular anime My Hero Academia was brought to life by a cosplayer’s mind blowing costume. The insanely accurate take left fans in awe as she became the perfect Uravity.

No anime in recent years has shaken up the industry quite like My Hero Academia. The series about a school that trains the next generation of superheroes with powers called ‘quirks’ has become a cultural phenomena.

In the story, student Ochako Uraraka has the ability to become weightless, and has warmed the hearts of viewers with her lovable personality. Popular cosplay artist ‘Shirogane Same’ went viral when she transformed herself into the heroine by controlling gravity itself.

Cosplayer defies gravity as stunning Uravity

The plot of the series centers on U.A. High – a school that trains only the most talented teenagers with powers to become pro heroes. The show’s protagonist, Izuku Midoriya, quickly befriends Uraraka, who has become a fan favorite.

Prolific cosplayer Shirogane Same shared her accurate take on the character, and chose to pose as Ochako in her school uniform. From her auburn colored bob hair-style, to the detailed blazer, she absolutely nailed her look.

The talented artist’s wig was created by Holish Cosplay, and she collaborated with photographer ovsyan to pull off the incredible photo set. The Russian artist even captured the heroine’s iconic facial expression, tying the whole re-creation together perfectly.

In the anime, the student uses her name combined with gravity to create her moniker Uravity. Shirogane wowed MHA fans when she shared her jaw dropping cosplay of the character using her quirk ‘Zero Gravity’ to control concrete projectiles.

The photos’ stunning 3D effects were done by ‘justmoolti’ who used her craft to bring the heroine’s powers to life. The cosplayer’s perfect depiction of the class 1-A student in her training attire quickly went viral, and at the time of writing it has over 36k likes on Instagram.

It looks so perfect.“ Another user ‘tlr_eclipse‘ agreed and exclaimed “That 1st picture looks like it could be straight out of a live action series.“

MHA fans went wild for the cosplayer’s accurate re-creation of Uravity.

My Hero Academia continues to capture the hearts of viewers around the world. Its riveting take on superheroes originated as a manga in 2014, but its 2016 anime adaptation by studio Bones made it a juggernaut in the medium.

The animation is currently on its fourth season arc, and is being broadcast in both Japanese and English for the first time simultaneously. Those interested in catching up before the inevitable season five debuts can watch all episodes on Crunchyroll or Funimation.

Attack on Titan cosplayers have been dishing up their best cosplays in recent weeks to prepare themselves for the end of the series, but this Mikasa Ackerman piece is something else.

The fourth and final season of Attack on Titan ends on February 15, which isn’t too far away. It’s a bittersweet moment for fans who have followed the show since it’s release back in 2013.

However, that hasn’t stopped fans from making the most out of it. Instead, there’s been an influx of impressive cosplays as fans have dressed up as their favorite characters from the show.

The main characters received a new look in the latest season, which opened the door for cosplayers to take on new challenges and ideas. Mikasa Ackerman’s new look has been a popular choice.

Mikasa is one of the most powerful characters in Attack on Titan.

Chandary, a popular cosplayer from France, transformed herself into Mikasa and it turned out great. Her fans were stunned with the final product, describing it as everything from “iconic” to “the best reason for humanity to survive.”

“Are you excited for Mikasa new look in Season?” said Chandary. “I was able to do this [cosplay] thanks to my friend and waifu reitoneeo who lent me her jacket. Thank you [so much].”

All the details are spot on. Chandary has included the shirt, scarf, jacket, suspenders, and straps. The highlight, however, is definitely the hair, which looks about as real as it gets.

It’s always nice for anime fans to see their favorite characters brought to life in incredible detail. You don’t even have to be a cosplay enthusiast to appreciate it. 

Chandary has done an excellent job, and there’s no doubt she’s helped people get excited about what’s to come in the last few episodes.
