A cosplayer named Angel re-created her favorite villain from My Hero Academia, Himiko Toga, in the most incredible way, and even managed to get all the details right from head to toe.

My Hero Academia is one of the most popular animes right now, and naturally, that means it’s a smash-hit among cosplayers too. Interestingly, of all the characters in the show, Himiko Toga keeps popping up time and time again in the cosplay community.

She is one of the most cold-blooded and ruthless villains in the show. However, fans can’t help but adore her weirdly charming and absurdly bubbly personality. It’s a stark contrast to how sinister she is beneath the surface.

Plus, the fact she looks like an inconspicuous petite and pale girl despite her status as one of the most dangerous characters makes her even more appealing. Love her or hate her, there’s no doubt that she’s made a strong impression on most fans.

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

A cosplayer named Angel, also known as despairhebi, reminded fans how talented she is by sharing her awesome Himiko Toga cosplay to celebrate the new year. It captures every detail of her traditional school uniform outfit, which consists of a shirt, skirt, knee-high socks, brown shoes, beige cardigan, and a red-scarf.

But what makes it even more fascinating is how good the mask and the canisters around her neck look. For those who don’t know, Himiko Toga uses them to draw blood from others and use it with her quirk, Transform.

Angel rounds it off nicely by matching her hair and dishing out a picture-perfect pose. All the pieces come together and round off nicely to capture Himiko Toga’s overall attitude and vibe.

But until then, at least we’ve got plenty of cosplayers like Angel to bring all of our favorite characters to life.

My Hero Academia’s Izuku Midoriya a.k.a. Deku has been recreated perfectly by cosplayer Lorentz iWood, producing both casual and hero looks for the fan-favorite character.

One anime that seems to be an unlimited source of cosplay inspiration is My Hero Academia. The show began airing in 2016, adapted from a manga that was published prior, and since then has gone on to secure a huge fanbase.

The anime features a host of distinct characters who each have their own abilities, referred to as Quirks in the show. The Quirks dictate what abilities certain people have, and it often is tied into aspects of their personality and aesthetic.

However Izuku Midoriya did not originally have a Quirk, something that ended up getting him bullied. Despite his lack of ability, he still dreamed of becoming a professional hero, with the anime following his journey alongside a host of other characters.

One cosplayer who recreated Izuku’s iconic look was Lorentz iWood, who took on the challenge of creating a range of different looks for the popular character.

In Deku’s hero look, Lorentz wears his green paneled jumpsuit with darker green strips running down the arms and in geometric formations on the torso. The tops of the sturdy green boots can be seen peeking over his knees, and contrast the chunky red utility belt and stark white gloves perfectly.

The shaggy green hair and lightly freckled face are a great match for Izuku, and he completed the look with a can of Twisted Tea, a reference to the viral meme which commenters under the cosplay were loving.

Lorentz also showed off a more casual Izuku look with a bold red hoodie and ripped jeans – though he still carried over the air of coolness to both looks. The photos captured by Richard Arcel are stunning, and perfectly showcase the fantastic costume along with the vivid backdrops.
