My Hero Academia cosplayer breaks hearts

In the series, the tiny horned girl has inherited one of the most powerful quirks in the world – the ability to rewind the state of a living being – but is thrown into tragedy when she accidentally hurts her family.

Eri is taken by the maniacal Kai Chisaki, and is scarred by awful tests done on her, which cosplayer 'sammyscosplay' portrays to perfection in her mind blowing outfit, bringing a scene from the anime to real life.

The artist collaborated with talented photographer Kevin Jeukens who captured her as she posed as the child sitting in a medical chair while holding tightly onto her teddy bear.

The cosplayer is sure to wow fans with her faithful take on the character, from her parted flowing hair, to the horn that grows out of her forehead and is the source of her quirk.

She also shared more photos of her dressing up as Eri on her social media, as she partnered with 'tara.cosplay' who portrays her captor Kai in a terrifying take on the pair.

As of the time of this article, Sammy has amassed over 74.7k followers on her Instagram, and she continues to blow her followers away with her movie level quality cosplays that are some of the best we've ever seen.
