Cosplayer ‘Bloodraven’ has been making quite a name for herself across social media, and her take on My Hero Academia’s U.A. High School teacher ‘Midnight’ shows exactly why.

The model’s outfit is a great recreation of Midnight’s thin white fabric suit that the character wears in the show. The cosplay manages to maintain its many intricacies and even looks like an exact replica, seemingly ripped right from the pages of a colorized manga.

For instance, Bloodraven’s outfit includes the two handcuffs on each wrist, the red utility belt, and blood-colored collar.

Additionally, the cosplay includes Midnight’s red mask, red finger nails and dominatrix-style flogger that complete the “bad teacher” ensemble presented in both the anime and manga.

According to the model, she got the mask, gems and pyramid studs from fellow prop-maker ‘Atlis,’ while her wig was sourced from the ever-popular supplier Arda Wigs.

In one of Bloodraven’s most impressive Midnight photos, she poses alongside fellow cosplayer ‘kyrramarie,’ who is dressed as series favorite (and Midnight’s friendly rival) ‘Mt. Lady.’

“I’m so happy we had the chance to cosplay together at Fanime,” she wrote of their shoot in an Instagram post.

Seeing the two heroes side-by-side sure is something, especially considering the duo’s humorous relationship in the series.

In addition to Midnight, Bloodraven has pulled off many different cosplays from My Hero Academia, including the unhinged villain Himiko Toga, Camie Utsushimi, and even a female take on half-and-half hero Todoroki.

Aside from MHA, Bloodraven has also dressed up as the fan-made Bowsette, Kakegurui’s Yumeko, Overwatch’s Reaper, Tifa from Final Fantasy 7, and many more.

Despite the fact that Midnight’s quirk, Somnambulist, puts enemies to sleep, we can’t help but feel wide awake after seeing what Bloodraven can come up with when she puts her mind to it.

Considering her talents, its no stretch of the imagination to assume that her next creation might be even more unique than the costumes she’s already mastered.

A talented cosplayer brought Steins;Gate protagonist Kurisu Makise to life. The talented artist made waves on Instagram after transforming into the red-haired scientist. 

While Steins;Gate originally made its debut as a visual novel in 2009, the series’ animated adaptation in 2011 is considered one of the best animes of all time. Its complex sci-fi narrative and diverse cast of characters has connected with viewers around the world.

A cosplayer showed her love for the time travel story by transforming into protagonist Kurisu Makise. The artist’s true-to-life take on the scientist is so perfect, it’s almost as if the heroine has changed world lines and warped out of the screen.

The genius scientist is one of the main protagonists in the 2011 anime.

Steins:Gate cosplayer wows as perfect Kurisu Makise

The anime opens with mad scientist Rintarou Okabe discovering a time anomaly involving physicist Kurisu. The heroine eventually joins the protagonist’s makeshift lab, where they discover time travel using a microwave machine and a cellphone. 

Cosplayer Leza ‘someonefromrussia’ made waves on Instagram after sharing her perfect re-creation of the red-haired scientist. Photographer ‘dobrolis’ captured the artist posing in the character’s signature outfit which consists of a white shirt, red tie, and black shorts.

The cosplayer showed off the incredible details of her outfit while mirroring a scene from the show where Makise holds a soda drink hilariously called DK Pepper. She even portrayed the heroine’s quirky sense of fashion by wearing her beige jacket around her elbows.

Leza also teamed up with fellow cosplayer ‘dan.aligieri2011’ who looks like the real life version of Okabe. The duo posed back-to-back for photographer ‘kmitenkova’, who shot them re-creating the anime’s iconic opening sequence.

Despite releasing over a decade ago, Steins;Gate is still incredibly popular and influential. The show is often ranked as one of the top best animes of all time by critics and fans.

The franchise was so beloved that it got a second season over seven years later called “Zero”. Fans can catch all episodes now on streaming services Crunchyroll and Funimation.
