My Hero Academia’s Nejire Hado was brought to life by a cosplayer’s adorable costume. The artist’s re-creation of panels from the manga will warm the hearts of fans.

My Hero Academia’s 2016 anime adaption turned the medium on its head. Viewers from around the world fell in love with the series’ story about a high school that trains the next generation of heroes with superpowers called ‘quirks.’

A cosplayer shared her take on one the most powerful students Nejire Hado, and using scenes from the manga she has brought the heroine to life like never before. Her clever re-creation will leave fans in awe.

The story centers on U.A. High – a renowned school that trains only the most talented teenagers to become pro heroes. However the three most powerful students are referred to as The Big 3 – something which Nejire is a part of.

Cosplayer ‘iirly_cosplays‘ transformed into Hado wearing her hero outfit, which consists of a blue skin-tight bodysuit that has a white and mint green pattern. The artist pulled off her look to perfection, even recreating her spiral arm bands.

In the show, the heroine’s quirk is Wave Motio”, and it allows her to convert her vitality into powerful blasts of energy. As a nod to her power, the character sports spiral horns that stick out from her hair, which the cosplayer nailed.

Iirly posted more photos of her costume and creatively emulated panels from the manga. Holding open the page, she re-created a scene to show off how faithful her costume is.

The shot also gives fans a full view of the amount of detail that went into creating her outfit. She captured the Big 3 student’s flowing periwinkle hair, and striking blue eyes.

In another upload, she mimicked a signature pose of Nejire’s by flashing the peace sign with her hands next to her eyes. The side by side comparisons really shows how much she looks like the MHA character.

A Demon Slayer cosplayer has metamorphosed into Shinobu Kochu and spread her wings in an elegant and well-detailed outfit that looks as real as it gets.

Shinobu Kocho is one of the standout characters in Demon Slayer. On the surface, she seems like a small, gentle, and soft-spoken angel with a calm and composed demeanor. But don’t let her size and appearance fool you. Shinobu Kocho is an incredibly powerful Demon Slayer. 

Beneath her skin is an immense and burning hatred towards demons, one which almost consumed her in the past. It started when she lost her beloved sister to the demons and sought revenge on them ever since.

It’s the reason Shinobu Kocho became a Demon Slayer in the first place.

Shinobu Kocho is a powerful, quick, and deadly swordsman. However, she’s also a medical expert and a master in pharmacology. To make matters worse for her opponents, she coats her weapon with poison and can perform ‘Insect Breathing.’

It’s easy to see why she’s a fan-favorite among Demon Slayer cosplayers. But although there are many amazing Shinobu Kocho cosplays, a Russian cosplayer named dabllmi has taken it to a whole new level.

There’s an incredible amount of detail in her cosplay. It permeates everything from her kimono, hair, and sandals to the sword itself. The shades and patterns are all on-point, and it really looks like Shinobu Kocho herself has come to life.

Combined with high-quality photography that includes a moon and leaves in the background and pink butterflies in the foreground, this cosplay is about as flawless as they come.

If you want to get a closer look at the outfit, you can swipe over to a second picture. The perfection of her kimono shine through even more. All in all, it was an unbelievable cosplay and one that many will mesmerize many Demon Slayer fans. 

If you’re like us and still desperately waiting for Demon Slayer Season 2, it seems like it’s still a while away. But in the meantime, there’s no harm in cosplaying your favorite characters and bringing them to life.
