Bringing one of the show’s most popular characters to life, a talented cosplayer shared an insanely accurate costume of Ochako Uraraka. The fan looks so much like the heroine, it’s almost as if she’s floated her way out of the screen and into real life.

While the popular anime is filled with professional heroes, the bulk of the story centers on the students of Class 1-A at U.A. High. The prestigious institute trains talented teenagers like Ochako whose superpower is Zero Gravity.

Prolific cosplayer Alex ‘Pockythief‘ Marie brought the adorable character to life, transforming into Uraraka in her school attire. Photographer Cameron ‘redeemarts‘ captured the artist as she mirrored a scene from the first season.

Pocky nailed the heroine’s uniform, re-creating U.A. High’s iconic gray and green striped blazer as well as her pleated skirt. The cosplayer struck a pose as the heroine and portrayed her bubbly personality by clasping her hands together.

In a close-up shot, Alex gives us a better view at how much detail went into capturing Ochako’s signature style. The artist perfectly depicted her short bob haircut, as well as her long eyelashes that hang over her striking brown eyes.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, she also created the student’s hero uniform, and became her alter ego Uravity. In another picture taken by ‘cosplaysnap‘, Pocky strikes the character’s signature pose.

My Hero Academia originally made its 2014 debut as a manga in the Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine. However its anime adaptation by Studio Bones two years later made it a worldwide hit.

The animation wrapped up its fourth arc in April. For everything we know about its fifth season return, check out our guide here. Those wanting to catch up can watch all episodes on Crunchyroll or Funimation.

One of the more unique characters in the series is Fat Gum. The character can absorb anything into his own body fat. Prolific cosplayer Sarah ‘HendoArt’ Hendo captured the hero’s incredibly epic Season 4 look with a twist.

While in most of the series, Fat Gum is large, the character can burn off his weight when absorbing powers from foes. In the Season 4 episode Red Riot, the pro hero sheds his fat and becomes ripped after defeating Hekiji and Kendo.

Cosplayer HendoArt captured his new look with an insanely accurate costume which she posted on Twitter on October 13. Referencing the epic battle, the artist captioned her pictures with “Are you the spear or the shield?”

Sarah absolutely nailed the character’s costume, perfectly re-creating his black mask and signature yellow and white jacket which has the letters FG written across it. She even created his orange gloves with metal studs on each knuckle.

Her faithful re-creation of Taishiro Toyomitsu is full of details, such as the torn black shirt which the pro hero ripped after burning off all his body fat. Just like in the series, she also has her yellow hoodie up.

In another shot posted to Instagram, the cosplayer posed as the BMI hero in a selfie. In this shot, the artist took off her mask which the character briefly does in My Hero Academia after sustaining heavy damage. 

This is easily one of the best takes we’ve seen on the hero. Hendo accurately captured the character’s epic transformation after his battle with the Shield and Spear.
