A My Hero Academia cosplayer shared an insanely accurate Ochako Uraraka costume, and defied gravity by bringing the pro hero in training to life.

My Hero Academia first released as a manga back in 2014, but exploded in popularity worldwide with its 2016 anime adaption that saw the superhero school series becoming a pop culture phenomenon.

The show takes place in a world where people have evolved to have powers called quirks, and a talented cosplayer blew minds with her true-to-life take on the zero gravity hero Uraraka.

Cosplayer masters Uraraka's look

The anime follows the teenage students who attend U.A. High - a premiere school for heroes in training that want to go pro - and the most lovable character is Ochako Uraraka who's quirk is zero gravity.

Popular cosplayer 'nymphahri' shared an incredibly accurate take on the heroine that saw her perfectly recreating the anime style of the show with her makeup, hair, and contact lenses.

While in rare occasions cosplayers can look very similar to the characters they are dressing up as, Ahri capturing the show's look made it appear as though the girl had jumped from out of the screen.

The artist shared more photos of her outfit on her social media, showing that she's also perfected the gravity student's hero costume, which consists of a black and pink skin tight suit.

She also captures the bubbly heroine's personality, by striking a pose straight from the anime, as she puts both of her hand together, and nails the character's iconic stance.

In the series, Uraraka goes by Uravity as her hero moniker as her quirk makes her or whatever she touches weightless. The skilled cosplayer faithfully created the student's costume, including her wrist guards, gravity belt, and boots which aid her quirk.
