My Hero Academia largely centers on U.A. High, and the students enrolled there such as Ochako Uraraka. The charmingly kind heroine has a quirk that lets her float and make anything she touches become weightless.

Cosplayer ‘Mina Starliart‘ transformed into the student’s alter ego Uravity, and shared her incredible costume on Instagram. Photographer ‘s.k.y.linephoto‘ captured the artist posing as the hero in her black and pink bodysuit.

Mina nailed Uraraka’s adorable style, capturing her short brown bob haircut with a wig from ‘lemailcosplaywigs‘, and using makeup to mirror her rosy face. Her costume is also full of detail, such as her wrist guards, and large belt that hangs around her waist.

In another stunning shot, the cosplayer re-created the anime heroine’s pose from the show when she uses her quirk Zero Gravity. With special effects and editing, Mina holds out her hands while she controls the debris floating around her.

The artist also teamed up with fellow cosplayer ‘motokocosplay‘ who portrayed the popular pink hero Mina Ashido. The two creators adorably posed for a selfie as the two students from Class 1A.

My Hero Academia originally made its 2014 debut as a manga in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. Although it found worldwide success two years later with the anime adaptation by studio Bones.

A My Hero Academia cosplayer has shown off her perfect take on one of the anime’s most terrifying characters, the blood-thirsty and unpredictable villain Himiko Toga. 

The ultra-popular anime made it’s stunning debut back in 2016, and has captured the hearts and imaginations of viewers across the globe as they follow the story of Izuku Midoriya, a young man learning to control his newly found superpowers as he attempts to become the number one pro hero and fight against the evil League of Villains.

Throughout his time studying at U.A. High School, Deku has many ferocious and dangerous encounters with the villainous organization, and while they may be the bad guys in this epic story, one of the antagonists has enthralled fans above anyone else, with the sinister schoolgirl Himiko Toga quickly becoming a fan favorite, and one of the most popular characters from the series to cosplay.

Himiko Toga is a vicious villain with a taste for blood.

While Himiko may not look terrifying at first glance, the young woman has a truly sinister side that matches her seemingly innocent shapeshifting quirk. To transform into someone else, Himiko needs the blood of her intended target, and make no mistake, she takes great pleasure in extracting the red liquid she needs, often carrying around a knife just on the off-chance that she encounters someone she can slice.

In fact, Toga often wears vials around her neck to collect any blood she needs, something that Instagram user ‘pinkupandaa‘ captured perfectly in her incredible cosplay, complete with the massive and scary teeth that make up part of her headgear. Her hair is styled perfectly too, sitting either side of her head in two messy buns, just like the character.

Yuka has also matched her outfit too, with a red handkerchief tied around her neck, and her classic school uniform with a beige top and navy skirt. The cosplay is so good that it looks like Himiko has just been taken out of the show and dropped into real life, making this one of the best Toga cosplays we’ve seen.

Since it’s release in 2016, My Hero Academia has become a fan-favorite across the globe, and for the first time ever, was dual broadcasted in both English and Japanese so viewers across the planet could catch all the action at the same time.
