A My Hero Academia cosplayer went viral when she transformed herself in the real life version of Ochako Uraraka. The artist defies gravity with an insanely accurate Uravity costume. 

My Hero Academia made its momentous debut in 2016, and became a worldwide phenomena. Viewers fell in love with the show’s story about a high school that trains teenagers with superpowers called ‘quirks.’

A skilled cosplay artist shared her true-to-life take on the lovable student Ochako Uraraka. The faithful depiction of the heroine is so good, it’s almost as if Uravity has floated out of the screen.

The series mainly focuses on the students at U.A. High – an institution which trains those gifted with incredible powers. Ochako is enrolled in Class 1-A, and has the ability to turn herself and others weightless with her Zero Gravity quirk.

Popular cosplayer ‘Mochi Chuu‘ became the popular heroine with an incredibly accurate re-creation. Photographer ‘Federica Vinci‘ captured the artist posing as the student’s alter ego, Uravity.

Mochi absolutely nailed Uraraka’s iconic look, perfectly mirroring her short auburn bob hairstyle. She even faithfully depicted the signature pink blush on her cheekbones.

The cosplayer posted more pictures of her work on Instagram, and gave viewers a full glimpse of the character’s hero uniform, which consists a blue and pink bodysuit.

In another shot, the cosplay artist brought Uravity’s quirk to life with clever editing. Mochi’s uniform is insanely detailed, from the glossy look of her suit, to the mega-sized gravity boots and wrist guards.

One of Jujutsu Kaisen’s most iconic characters is Satoru Gojo, the mysterious teacher at Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical College. One cosplayer has brought the sorcerer to life with an insane outfit. 

It’s safe to say that the anime universe beautifully intertwines with the cosplay scene. With a whole host of characters and iconic titles, the Japanese cartoon genre has become a global phenomenon.

Jujutsu Kaisen has become one of the most popular animes of 2020, and has dominated streaming website Crunchyroll for the last few months.

The fantasy series features one character that has managed to attract quite a bit of attention though, and that’s Satoru Gojo, teacher and Jujutsu Sorcerer extraodinare.

One of the reasons that cosplayers have flocked to Gojo is his unique style, which sees his eyes covered by a black eyemask. An outfit posted on Instagram by weian_vann (Vann) really brings the character to life though.

Not only is the outfit a perfect replica, Vann has nailed the iconic silver hair that has become so synonymous with the Cursed Energy master.

There’s a sense of foreboding around him though, and we can imagine the anime-style purple smoke kicking up around him to imply that he’s not one to mess with. The first image sees him posed on a backward chair in a stature that’s both playful yet menacing.

Fans are obsessed

The Chinese cosplayer’s image has almost 62k likes, and the comment section is filled with a whole host of Jujutsu fans heaping praise upon him for being able to bring the iconic character to life.

One fan has written “NO WAYYYYY MY HEARTTTT,” reacting in a similar way to many of the sorcerer’s lovestruck students.

Another fan commented on Vann’s masterful recreation of Gojo’s iconic silver hair, asking “Wow! How long did it take to get the hair like that? It looks great!”

A final commenter praised the entire outfit, writing that Vann “did so good” and that the cosplay “looks so realistic!”

So it’s safe to say that fans are really loving Vann’s rendition of Gojo, because not only does he perfectly recreate the outfit but he really becomes the character. As the anime progresses it’ll be exciting to see if he does any more magical cosplays, but in the mean time we can happily swoon away over this one!
