Popular cosplayer ‘f.ukuro’ has gone viral on TikTok for the stunning transformation videos that show her turn into My Hero Academia antagonist Himiko Toga in a split second, getting the character’s look and mannerisms down perfectly.

While TikTok has a huge variety of communities that have churned out countless stars and trends, one group that has always had a substantial presence on the app is the cosplayers.

The video format offers them a huge range of scope in terms of what kind of content they can produce utilizing costume, and some of the app’s most popular trends and songs have actually originated from the cosplay community.

My Hero Academia is a hugely popular anime, and that is reflected over on TikTok where people recreate their favorite characters from the show, who each have their own ‘Quirks.’

Himiko Toga is a popular choice among cosplayers despite being a villain.

Himiko Toga is one of the show’s primary antagonists, and while her schoolgirl outfit may make her seem innocent from afar, the bloodthirsty character is quite the opposite.

However, she still remains a hugely popular character among fans of the show, and more specifically the cosplay community, who regularly attempt to recreate Toga’s iconic look.

One such cosplayer was f.ukuro, a cosplayer on the rise who has over 3.8 million followers on TikTok, and has seen a huge amount of growth recently both there and on her Instagram where people are obsessed with her remarkably accurate cosplays, and fun TikToks.

In this viral TikTok, f.ukuro started off in her regular clothes, mouthing along to the song Hayloft by Mother Mother. When the song dropped, the made an amazingly smooth transition into Toga, and the difference was insane.

F.ukuro had the school uniform look down perfectly, with the cream cardigan, red ribbon, and navy blue skirt mimicking the original exactly. On top, she wore Toga’s heavy-duty weaponry which adds that element of danger to the look, combined with the holsters slung around her waist.

Her hair matches Toga’s voluminous blonde space buns, which is a great combination with her flawless makeup.

An Apex Legends cosplayer has blown fans of the game away with a stunning female twist on Mirage, putting together every detail for a perfect cosplay.

The range of characters in Apex Legends means there’s something for everyone, whether you’re drawn to someone in particular for their abilities, their appearance, or their personality.

The Legends’ unique and varied looks also mean that cosplayers have plenty of inspiration when it comes to wanting to recreate characters from the game for themselves, and always get creative with ways to look just like the original.

Elliot Witt or ‘Mirage’ as he’s known, has a combat-style outfit mixed with vibrant yellows, on his default skin, proving to be great inspiration for those who want to recreate a look from the game.

Mirage is also known as the Holographic Trickster.

But cosplayer Sarenji took it to the next level by putting a feminine twist on Mirage’s looks, but still somehow managing to keep in with the finer details of the original character. Sarenji has cosplayed multiple other Apex characters in the past, including Crypto and Loba, and she’s done a fantastic job every time.

The quilted yellow material is overlayed with a black vest that has straps crossing over the shoulder, giving it that perfect combat feel, and the light and dark green scarf matches almost perfectly, and ties in with the rest of the outfit.

Her brown hair falls in a short curly bob, atop which sits some large goggles with deep red lenses. This red makes her matching eyeshadow pop, along with the remarkably realistic-looking scars across her face and eyebrow.

The look as a whole is fantastic, and those small details make it even better. Fans definitely agreed, saying, “that is really well done, even the scars are right,” “I absolutely love how you included his eyebrow scar. Great attention to detail!” and “So good! I wish I had talent like this.”

The brilliant cosplay was a unique take on the Holographic Trickster, and Sarenji’s hard work definitely paid off, with people loving the stunning recreation.
