A My Hero Academia cosplayer went viral with an insanely accurate Ochako Uraraka outfit. The artist’s adorable take on Uravity will warm fan’s hearts as she uses her quirk to defy gravity.

While originating as a manga in 2014, My Hero Academia has become a worldwide phenomena with its anime adaptation. The series’ story about a school that trains teenagers with powers called ‘quirks’ has connected with millions of viewers.

Its varied cast of characters has also made it wildly popular in the cosplay community. And prolific artist ‘Enji Night’ took things to the next level by sharing her mind blowing true-to-life costume of popular heroine Ochako Uraraka.

Cosplayer wows as My Hero Academia’s Uravity

One of the most popular characters in the show is Uraraka. The lovable and kind personality becomes close with protagonist Izuku Midoriya. The heroine’s quirk is Zero Gravity, and anything she touches becomes completely weightless.

Cosplayer Enji Night went viral, when she transformed herself into ‘Uravity’ – the anime character’s superhero alias. Popular photographer ‘copycatcosplay’ captured her striking a gravity defying pose in the air.

The artist looks exactly like the MHA character, accurately depicting her short brown bob hairstyle, while wearing her signature black and pink bodysuit. Channeling her energetic spirit, she perfectly mirrors her stance from the show.

After a short break I bring you more Uravity pictures. Especially since the new season is out now! ?? Honestly at the beginning I wasn't sure how this costume will turn out and if it will be comfortable or not. After wearing it a couple times at events, I can say for sure that it's a quite comfy cosplay, even the boots! It's a little bit hard to walk in them, but overall I really like the outcome. ?? So while I have my hype for BNHA I will quickly finish Froppy! It's always so much faster to work on a cosplay, when I'm constantly inspired by the show while watching it! ? Do you think is there any other character I should make? All of them are so cute and I have my favorites, but I would be interested in your opinion. ?

Enji shared more pictures of her work on Instagram, and gave viewers a glimpse into how much work went into making it. Unlike most cosplays of the character, her belt, wrist guards, and Uraraka’s iconic gravity boots are all separate pieces.

The depth and faithful portrayal of Uravity’s hero uniform is mind blowing to say the least. Cleverly, she used a set of stairs to make it look like she’s using her Zero Gravity quirk and levitating above the ground.

The boots took me more time than I expected, but I really love how the costume turned out at the end. ??I would't say it's easy to walk in these boots , but they look cool on pictures hahaha And soon I will make another waifu from this show. Stay tuned?? . . Do you like My Hero Academia? Are you excited about season 4?? Who is your favorite character? . .

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.
