My Hero Academia may follow the story of main character Izuku Midoriya, but Tsuyu Asui, better known as Froppy, is the character who truly captured the hearts of fans worldwide, and one anime fan has shown their appreciation for the frog hero with an incredible cosplay.

Midoriya, known as Deku, is a young boy born without superpowers who dreams of becoming a professional hero like his idol All-Might. In a world full of villains with devastating quirks, Midoriya has a chance encounter with his hero, and eventually inherits the legendary power known as One For All from him, enrolling at U.A. High School to learn how to control his new-found abilities to save people in the future.

Of course, Deku isn’t the only student at U.A, joining Class 1-A and meeting a unique cast of characters all with their own distinct quirks, including the frog hero Froppy, who instantly became a fan favorite among viewers of the show.

Froppy has become one of My Hero Academia’s most popular characters.

Unlike many heroes, Froppy isn’t bold and loud but shy and measured, and immediately grabbed the hearts of My Hero Academia viewers around the world. Don’t be fooled by her soft voice or lovable personality though, because the character is undoubtedly brave and fiercely loyal, showing off her combat skills by fighting off a team of villains during her internship in the second season.

Cosplayer ‘felicityfairy’ is clearly a fan, showing off her incredible take on the character via her Instagram, complete with the massive golden goggles she wears on top of her head. Her green hair is parted into three separate pieces, with a small set of bangs hanging down the middle of her face, while the same green line that can be seen across Froppy’s nose and cheeks is present in the cosplay too.

Decided to practice some sad facial expressions when I did my Tsuyu costest, and I think they turned out decent enough. Gonna practice a bunch more throughout this year since I’m usually lacking in the posing department. ?Photographer: Myself ・ Wig: JF-0360-PCM/ML313 from @lemailcosplaywigs Contacts: Geo Bambi Apple Green from @honeycolor_official Costume: Made by me Props: Made by @windscarcosplay ・ #tsuyu #tsuyucosplay #tsuyuasui #tsuyuasuicosplay #asuitsuyu #asuitsuyucosplay #froppy #froppycosplay #bnha #bnhacosplay #mha #mhacosplay #bokunoheroacademia #bokunoheroacademiacosplay #myheroacademia #myheroacademiacosplay #cosplay #cosplaysexy #cosplaygirl #cosplaygirls #cosplayer #cosplayersofinstagram #cosplayers #cosplayergirl #animehot #animegirls #hotcosplaygirl #cosplayphotography #vizmedia #funimation

Froppy’s hero costume is also perfect, with black and yellow stripes down the arms and chest, the white harness she wears around her torso, and the white gloves and cuffs on her wrist that make up part of the outfit she wears while in battle.

Writer, Director, and Try Guys member Eugene Lee Yang has absolutely blown Avatar: The Last Airbender fans away with his flawless cosplays, recreating not just Azula but Zuko too.

Since rising to internet fame with his work on YouTube series ‘the Try Guys,’ Eugene Lee Yang has established himself as a creator in his own right, producing many hugely viral videos exploring LGBTQ+ and Asian-American identities.

Each year in what he describes as his ‘Asian Halloween Tradition,’ Eugene cosplays different Asian characters from popular movies, TV shows, books and more to celebrate different aspects of those cultures, and works alongside a team to flex their outstanding costume and makeup skills.

In the past, he’s recreated characters like Mulan, Magnus Bane from the Mortal Instruments Series, and many more dating back to Halloween of 2009 when he cosplayed Russell from the animated film UP.

But this year, Eugene and his talented team treated fans to not just one, but two Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplays, and they were both as fantastic as each other.

Eugene cosplays Zuko and Azula

First, in a post that at the time of writing has 99,000 likes, he recreated the banished prince from the Fire Nation, Zuko.

Eugene models the brilliant costume by Kinetic Cosplay perfectly, the bold oranges and reds of the fabric creating a vibrant fire-like glow, which combined with the mix of silk trims and various types of fabric give a perfectly dynamic edge to the look.

His makeup artist Arianna Blean has also reformed Zuko’s signature eye scar, the scar wax looking intricate enough to be realistic, but also with a slightly animated feel in keeping with the original art style.

To fans’ surprise, Eugene even pulled out a second Avatar look to celebrate Halloween this year, also having a go at one of the show’s most popular villains, Fire Nation princess Azula in beautiful photos taken by JD Renes.

The absolutely stunning images show the YouTube star surrounded by lightning, filling the images with a mesmerizing blue-white glow. The black and gold plates contribute to a powerful silhouette, with the wig by danekez sculpted perfectly to look like the original, even keeping with the gold hairpiece in the center of the head.

Eugene put both characters together in the same image in a post that gained 40,000 likes, and even participated in a TikTok trend where he wipes a mirror to switch between the two characters, injecting the video with electric personality.

His series of posts about the cosplays have garnered hundreds of thousands of likes all together, and has already got people excited about what Eugene will pull out of the bag next Halloween.
