My Hero Academia’s fans were blown away by a cosplayer’s incredible Ochako Uraraka costume. Her incredibly detailed portrayal of Uravity had them seeing double.

Ever since its anime debut in 2016, My Hero Academia has taken the world by storm. Millions have connected with the show’s premise about a high school that trains teenagers with powers called ‘quirks.’

Incredibly skilled cosplayer ‘mk_ays’ had fans going wild when she brought one of the most popular students, Ochako Uraraka, to life. Her faithful depiction of the gravity-defying heroine is one of the best things you will see all day.

Cosplayer defies gravity as perfect Uravity

In the story, Uraraka combines her name with her quirk zero gravity to form her hero moniker Uravity. Her power allows her to become weightless, as well as to make solid objects float when she touches them.

Cosplayer ‘mk_ays’ shared her stunning re-creation of the heroine on social media. The talented artist is known for her mind-blowing close-up shots where she faithfully re-creates looks with perfect accuracy.

MHA fans were completely blown away by her detailed outfit such as user ‘neverask.twice’ who said, “Shot is so good, thought was a drawing or something from the anime.” Another user ‘a.b.b.n’ agreed, exclaiming, “Seriously, admit that you came out of the manga and came to real life.”

The Russian artist shared more photos of her costume on Instagram, and gave fans a better look at the detail that went into depicting the anime school uniform. She nailed the MHA character’s look with her gray and green trimmed blazer, and her auburn-colored bob hair style.

In another picture, Ays dressed up in Ochako’s blue and white U.A. High training uniform. Re-creating her fighting stance from the show, she looks just like the hero – even down to the pink blush on her cheeks, which she is known for.

During the Season 2 arc, the school holds a sports festival where Uravity faces off against fellow student Katsuki Bakugo, and she fights to her last breath. In a jaw dropping re-creation, the artist shows her cuts and bruises. The post went viral with over 31k likes at the time of writing.

My Hero Academia’s popularity doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. The anime adaption has propelled manga sales, and in February its feature length film Heroes Rising was a smash hit in theaters.

The show is currently on its fourth season arc, although it is about to wrap up soon. Those curious what all the hype is about can check out every single episode on Crunchyroll and Funimation.

My Hero Academia cosplayer’s perfect Bakugou

While most of the anime centers on main protagonist Izuku Midoriya, the series quickly introduces a diverse cast once the character enrolls at U.A High. One of those is his childhood friend and rival Bakugou. 

Cosplayer Soph ‘sophieriiis’ went viral on Instagram after sharing their mind-blowing transformation into the hot-headed Katsuki. The artist brought the student’s explosive quirk to life with the help of photographer ‘jacob.cr2‘, who captured them posing with flames shooting from their hands.

In the series, Bakugou is able to store up sweat into his grenade shaped wrist guards, which Sophie has faithfully portrayed with life-size props. The artist also perfectly mirrored the hero’s large metal knee pads and neck brace which he uses to protect himself from explosions.
