My Hero Academia cosplayer becomes female Bakugo

Much of the series follows the students of Class 1-A at U.A. High – the premier school for training teenagers with superpowers. Throughout the story,  Bakugo becomes the rival of protagonist Izuku Midoriya. The ill-tempered teen often loses his cool, and can turn his sweat into massive explosions.

Cosplayer 'Natalia Kat' brought the popular character to life with her jaw-dropping portrayal. Photographer 'bquezadapd' perfectly captured the artist posing in the character's orange and black hero uniform. Using effects to bring his explosive quirk to life, fire shoots out of her prop grenade-shaped gauntlets.

Natalia cleverly gives Katsuki a female spin, re-creating his black shirt in the form of a cropped tank-top with an orange cross across it. Her costume is packed full of details, such as the mini grenades that hang off her green belt, and the incredible prop of Bakugo's metallic neck brace.

In a second close-up shot, the artist gave viewers another look of her unique take on the My Hero Academia character. Instead of his usual messy short hair, the cosplayer mirrored his signature style with her parted blonde locks which sit above her red eyes.
