A My Hero Academia cosplayer has gone viral for their stunning take on the super-sized heroine Mt Lady. The artist’s perfect recreation captures the gigantic hero perfectly, and fans are already loving the cosplay!

Most of the super-popular My Hero Academia anime series focuses on main characters like Izuku Midoriya and Ochako Uraraka. There are plenty of other heroes roaming the wide world, however, including the flirtatious Yu Takeyama.

Titanic heroine Takeyama, who is better known in the show by her moniker Mt Lady, is one of the first crime fighters Midoriya goes to see in the opening episode of the series. She is part of “The Lurkers” group alongside Edgeshot and Kamui Woods.

Mt Lady is also one of the heroes that has her own fanbase, both in the show and out. In the series, fans chase after The Lurkers to get her signature. The super-sized heroine often gets free food and gifts because she’s so popular.

Hendoart unveils eye-catching Mt Lady cosplay

Talented model and artist Sarah ‘hendoart’ Hendo brought the giant heroine to life in a larger than life cosplay. The American model ⁠— who also streams on Twitch ⁠— said Mt Lady is one of her favorite characters, though she “wants to make them all!”

She certainly knocked it out of the park too, almost as high as Mt Lady herself. Outside of the hero’s growing powers, her main costume features are based around her stylish face mask and purple horns. Hendo had them both.

In fact, she designed the worbla mask herself, though the horns were made by her friend and fellow cosplay artist Kinpatsu. Both features are amazing too; Hendo looks just like the MHA character, even down to the long blonde hair.

Finally, Mt Lady’s tight-but-stretchy jumpsuit, which expands with her when she grows, was the main section of Hendo’s cosplay. She certainly got that right too ⁠— the white highlights and orange trim brings the whole hero suit together.

According to Hendo, however, it wasn’t totally fun making the costume before she got in front of the cameras. In fact, it was a real pain: “This suit was surprisingly tedious to sew! I want to do all the characters… but it’s such a pain in the butt.”

Despite the problems Hendo seems to have had while she was making the costumes, she did say she’d be doing more My Hero Academia costumes and outfits in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled for that on her Instagram page.

She’s already got a few other stunning MHA outfits on there too, including Fatgum. She’s also done a ton of other pop-culture costumes, from Spider-Man and Psylocke, to Overwatch hero D.Va and Game of Thrones Queen Daenerys Targaryen, and plenty more.

The My Hero Academia anime series has become a cultural juggernaut since its debut back in 2016. The animation wrapped up its fourth season in April. For everything we know about the show’s return, check out our guide here.

Early on in the story, Nezuko Kamado is turned into a demon after surviving a brutal attack from a creature. A part of her new powers is the ability to shrink her body. To avoid being seen, the heroine travels in a box that is carried by her brother.

Cosplayer ‘aru.rinh’ went viral on Instagram after bringing the iconic plot point to real life. Photographer ‘muze‘ captured Zekia sitting in a box strapped to the back of an artist portraying her sibling, Tanjiro.

Adorably, her legs hang out of the wooden container as she sits snugly in the box. In the picture’s caption, she explained, “yes i do fit all the way into the box.”

In another shot posted to social media, aru.rinh gave viewers a full look at how detailed her costume really is. She faithfully created Nezuko’s signature pink yukata, including the red and white checkered sash around her waist. Zekia even included the character’s large leg wraps that go into her sandals.

The cosplayer also posed in an up-close portrait photo, and shows off how faithful her look is to the anime. In the series, the Kamado sibling’s eyes turn bright pink after being turned into a demon, which aru.rinh nailed effortlessly as her curly black hair falls on her shoulders.
