A skilled My Hero Academia cosplayer went viral when she transformed into one of the show’s most popular characters, Nejire Hado. The artist creates waves as a Big 3 student at U.A. High.

My Hero Academia’s rise has been meteoric ever since its epic debut in 2016. The anime adaptation has become a cultural phenomena, as viewers connected with its story about a school that trains teenagers with powers called quirks.

An extremely talented artist shared her mind blowing costume of Nejire Hado. The detailed portrayal of the powerful student brings her to life like never before. It’s almost as if the heroine has blasted her way out of the screen.

My Hero Academia cosplayer wows as Nejire Hado

Most of the anime takes place at U.A. High, a premiere school that trains young adults with quirks. However, ranking at the top is The Big 3 – the institution's most powerful students. Nejire is one of them, and can create energy waves.

Cosplayer ‘Sakuraflor' shared her take on the MHA character, and faithfully re-created the heroine's look that is so true to the show. Photographer 'brakeco_' captured her striking Hado's heroic pose from the series.

The artist's body suit was created by Esra 'jinougacosplay' and is full of details. The outfit perfectly mirror's Nejire's blue and mint-green hero uniform. The cosplayer even used contact lens by MinqueCosplayWebshop to accurately depict the student's eyes.

Sakura took more pictures while dressed as the heroine, and in another stunning shot she sits across a set of stairs. The image could easily be mistaken for a scene from out of the manga.

In the plot, Nejire's quirk is called Motion Waves, and she blasts energy at her foes. To represent that, her hero outfit has green and blue spirals around her wrists and hair – which the artist nailed effortlessly.

The cosplayer also channeled Hado's bubbly and kind personality, by striking another pose where she points her yellow gloves to her smile. At the time of writing, the post has over 1.9k likes on Instagram.
