A My Hero Academia cosplayer has melted hearts with her stunning cosplay depiction of aspiring superhero Shoto Todoroki, who can bend fire and ice to his will, complete with an amazing female twist.

Shoto Todoroki is one of MHA’s most powerful characters. Currently enrolled in U.A. High alongside series faves like Izuku Midoriya and Ochako Uraraka, Todoroki often stands out thanks to his half-fire and half-ice quirk.

Fans don’t just love Todoroki for his devastating hot and cold powers, though they are pretty impressive. His four-season long arc surrounding his hate for his father, current number one hero Endeavor, is what lifts Todoroki into a fan-favorite in the super-popular anime series.

Talented model and artist ‘amnesiahaze’ brought the aspiring hero to life with a mind-blowing Shoto Todoroki cosplay. It’s so good, fans can practically feel the heat and cold pouring out of the picture she snapped!

In a July 4 post on Instagram, the artist showed off the jaw-dropping costume, complete with Shoto’s iconic face-burn. In the series, Todoroki is permanently scarred by his mother due to the fact he “looks so much like Endeavor.”

Todoroki Shoto is one of MHA’s most popular characters among fans, best-known for his half-ice, half-fire quirk.

It was a part of the cosplay Amnesia told Dexerto she “focused on the most”. It definitely shows! She looks to have got Shoto’s scar just right, spread across the side of her face like a brand. It matches perfectly with her half-red, half-white hair.

Perhaps the most stunning part of the outfit ⁠— outside of the makeup work, of course ⁠— is the post-production fire and ice Amnesia added around her costume. It feels like Todoroki is already ready for battle because of the effects.

Finally, the MHA cosplayer added a neck-high, dark blue jacket, to evoke the UA High outfits the My Hero Academia characters wear in most episodes of the show. Amnesia revealed she even “used what she had,” just modifying it slightly to work.

“Complex” Todoroki the perfect choice

The talented cosplayer told Dexerto she sees Shoto Todoroki as “a very complex character” after sharing her image on Instagram. “He has always lived denying his origins, a part of himself. The story of his childhood fascinated me. I feel close to him.” She added she wanted to tell his story with the “burn on his face.”

Can’t get enough of My Hero Academia cosplays, or just think amnesiahaze portrayed Shoto just right? Good news; she gave Dexerto the tip she’s planning on doing a Deku cosplay next, so keep your eyes peeled for that soon!

A Resident Evil Village cosplayer shared her mind-blowing true-to-life take on Alcina Dimitrescu. The talented artist brought the viral tall vampire lady to life with an insanely accurate costume.

Ever since her reveal in January 2021, the internet can’t get enough of the “tall vampire lady” that starred in Resident Evil Village’s trailer. Despite being the villain of the upcoming PlayStation 5 title, fans can’t get enough of the towering antagonist.

A cosplayer celebrated Alcina Dimitrescu by transforming into her with an incredibly detailed outfit. The artist’s perfect recreation is so accurate, it’s almost as if the terrifying character has walked right out of the screen and into real life.

The tall vampire has become a viral hit with fans.

Resident Evil cosplayer becomes tall vampire lady

Alcina’s explosion in popularity not only took many players by surprise, but Capcom itself was caught off guard by the internet’s obsession over the new villain. I mean, what’s not to love? The incredibly fierce antagonist has a unique design and looks badass the first time her towering height is revealed.

Prolific cosplayer Galina ‘rgtcandy‘ Zhukovskaya made waves on Instagram after sharing her faithful costume of the vampire on February 15. The artist perfectly recreated the antagonist’s iconic white silk pleated dress, as well as her signature large hat which hangs over her eyes.

Photographer Victoria ‘milliganvick‘ not only captured Galina as she posed as Dimitrescu but also helped the artist mirror Alcina’s look by meticulously applying makeup. This is easily one of the best portrayals of the tall vampire lady we have ever seen and it will be sure to capture fans’ hearts.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the talented duo also portrayed an iconic scene from the demo where Alcina emerges from a locked door and grabs Ethan. The 1:1 re-creation is chilling to say the least, as it brings the game to life like never before.

Resident Evil Village will make its debut on next-gen consoles and PC on May 7, 2021. The new entry in the popular survival-horror franchise will be the eighth in the series and will continue the design of 7 by using a first-person point of view.

While fans can’t seem to get enough of vampire Alcina Dimitrescu right now, it may be a different tune once the terrifying villain is chasing players down during the title’s epic story. One thing is for certain, though – the towering antagonist is already an icon in the genre.
