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.

Taking things to the next level, the artist made a video dressed up in character and struck her iconic hand pose. The adorable video exploded on social media, and at the time of writing has an astonishing 481k views.

My Hero Academia continues to be a smash hit, pulling in insane numbers on the manga charts. The anime adaptation also recently wrapped up its season four arc in April. For everything we know about the show’s return, check out our guide here.

Those curious what all the fuss is about can embark on the Midoriya’s epic journey to becoming the world’s best hero by watching the episodes on Crunchyroll and Funimation. You will also want to watch the theatrical film Heroes Rising, which came out this February.

A skilled Instagram cosplayer has recreated one of My Hero Academia’s primary antagonists, Himiko Toga, in extraordinary detail, bringing her villain attire to life with their amazing look.

The anime My Hero Academia was released in 2016, and has since then scooped up an enormous fan base of people who adore the show’s perfect blend of action and interesting characters.

Each character has a super power called a ‘Quirk,’ and this ability  is unique to each person, and offers them a range of boosts and characteristics that help show off their individuality.

That goes for both protagonists and antagonists, and one of the primary villains, Himiko Toga, has ended up becoming somewhat of a fan-favorite for her sadistic personality with its own unique charms.

Himiko Toga is a dangerous villain in My Hero Academia, despite her innocent look.

When in her usual form, Toga sports a baggy school uniform look, which many cosplayers have done an extraordinary job of recreating. But the character’s villain uniform can be harder to pull off and maintain Toga’s confidence, with clunky machinery fixed around her neck.

But cosplayer layvendercos has done a fantastic job of donning the iconic Toga look, and certainly looks as though they could play the role in a live-action version of the show.

Reminiscent of Toga’s school attire, this cosplayer wears knee length marl gray socks with some brown leather brogues, their legs dangling from their seat in one image as part of the character’s persona.

This is paired with a black skirt, and Toga’s token cream-colored jumper, which looks oversized as part of the original look, giving a slightly cute appearance.

However, this cute school look is directly contrasted with Toga’s villain attire. Thick canisters are hung from their neck, along with the classic black smile mask. Fastened to their legs and waist are green knife boxes, with one knife clasped firmly in their hand.

Their blonde hair is styled to match Toga’s voluminous space buns, with chunky bangs falling either side of their face to frame it, and perfectly bringing the look together.

Layvendercos certainly did an incredible job as Himiko Toga, and will have their followers excited to see what may but up next for the cosplayer.
