TikTok users have been stunned by a My Hero Academia cosplayer’s smooth transformation into Katsuki Bakugo, gaining hundreds and thousands of views for their posts featuring the cosplay.

My Hero Academia constantly proves to be an endless source of inspiration for the cosplay community. With a huge range of characters that each have their own interesting personalities and aesthetics, there’s something that appeals to everyone when it comes to recreating outfits from the show.

One of the key aspects of the anime is that each character has their own ‘Quirk,’ a special ability or characteristic that often ties into their appearance or personality, meaning there is a lot to be explored cosplay-wise.

Cosplayer ‘todorkies’ a.k.a. Bria went viral on TikTok after they made several videos showcasing their amazing version of Katsuki Bakugo, childhood friend and rival of the series protagonist, Izuku Midoriya.

Bria did an insanely good job of putting together the cosplay, perfectly capturing the character in their various videos.

One TikTok that was particularly popular, was a transformation set to “Yucky Blucky Fruitcake” by Iamdoechii, a sound that’s currently gaining traction on the platform.

The transition was seamless, and the look was even better. The outfit was on point, with the vibrant colors really standing out, and the spiked headdress looking just like the original. The lighting was also amazing, adding that extra layer to an already stunning cosplay.
