My Hero Academia cosplayer shares Nejire re-creation

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.
