My Hero Academia continues to be one of the most popular anime in the world, and a fan of the show has shown of her incredible cosplay of one of the many characters featured in the series, Shiketsu High School’s Camie Utsushimi.

My Hero Academia follows the story of Izuku Midoriya, a young boy born without a quirk who gains the legendary superpower named One For All from his idol All Might. Aiming to become the world’s number one hero, Deku starts to attend U.A. High School to learn how to harness his new abilities which are too powerful and end up damaging his body as he tries to use them. As the series goes on, Midoriya becomes stronger and able to use more and more of his quirk, while meeting some new characters and friends along the way.

In season 3, Deku and Class 1-A take on the Provisional Hero License Exam, which allows them to head out into the real world and train with pro heroes. While there, the U.A. High students are introduced to a number of other schools, and no character from the other class immediately captured a place in the hearts of fans like Camie Utsushimi.

My Hero Academia fans first met Camie Utsushimi in Season 3.

Even though Camie didn’t feature in the series at all during the first two series, that didn’t stop her infectious attitude and bubbly personality capturing the attention of the anime’s worldwide audience, and Utsushimi immediately became a fan-favorite, with cosplayer ‘tinechan’ becoming the latest My Hero Academia fan to show her appreciation for the character.

When in school, Camie is exclusively seen wearing the Shiketsu High uniform, but when fighting and heading into battle, the student dons her hero outfit, which is a skin-tight black suit that covers her arms and legs. Camie finishes off the look with white cuffs around her wrists, and a pair of white boots, while a metallic silver band sits around her next, something which tinechan captured perfectly.

As always, Camie’s Shiketsu High hat sits pride of place on top of her blonde hair, with the school’s golden crest take pride of place on the front, and a length of red material adding an extra accent on the brim of the hat.

For the first time ever, My Hero Academia was simulcasted during its fourth season in both Japanese and English, meaning fans got to catch all the action no matter which version they preferred.

With the latest chapter of Midoriya’s story drawing to a close on April 4, fans will now be waiting for information about the eventual fifth season, although there is no word on when we can expect to see it.

Writer, Director, and Try Guys member Eugene Lee Yang has absolutely blown Avatar: The Last Airbender fans away with his flawless cosplays, recreating not just Azula but Zuko too.

Since rising to internet fame with his work on YouTube series ‘the Try Guys,’ Eugene Lee Yang has established himself as a creator in his own right, producing many hugely viral videos exploring LGBTQ+ and Asian-American identities.

Each year in what he describes as his ‘Asian Halloween Tradition,’ Eugene cosplays different Asian characters from popular movies, TV shows, books and more to celebrate different aspects of those cultures, and works alongside a team to flex their outstanding costume and makeup skills.

In the past, he’s recreated characters like Mulan, Magnus Bane from the Mortal Instruments Series, and many more dating back to Halloween of 2009 when he cosplayed Russell from the animated film UP.

But this year, Eugene and his talented team treated fans to not just one, but two Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplays, and they were both as fantastic as each other.

Eugene cosplays Zuko and Azula

First, in a post that at the time of writing has 99,000 likes, he recreated the banished prince from the Fire Nation, Zuko.

Eugene models the brilliant costume by Kinetic Cosplay perfectly, the bold oranges and reds of the fabric creating a vibrant fire-like glow, which combined with the mix of silk trims and various types of fabric give a perfectly dynamic edge to the look.

His makeup artist Arianna Blean has also reformed Zuko’s signature eye scar, the scar wax looking intricate enough to be realistic, but also with a slightly animated feel in keeping with the original art style.

To fans’ surprise, Eugene even pulled out a second Avatar look to celebrate Halloween this year, also having a go at one of the show’s most popular villains, Fire Nation princess Azula in beautiful photos taken by JD Renes.

The absolutely stunning images show the YouTube star surrounded by lightning, filling the images with a mesmerizing blue-white glow. The black and gold plates contribute to a powerful silhouette, with the wig by danekez sculpted perfectly to look like the original, even keeping with the gold hairpiece in the center of the head.

Eugene put both characters together in the same image in a post that gained 40,000 likes, and even participated in a TikTok trend where he wipes a mirror to switch between the two characters, injecting the video with electric personality.

His series of posts about the cosplays have garnered hundreds of thousands of likes all together, and has already got people excited about what Eugene will pull out of the bag next Halloween.
