A My Hero Academia cosplayer brought the frog-like hero Froppy to life with their incredibly accurate portrayal of the amphibious character.

Froppy, also known as Tsuyu Asui, is the anime’s lovable Rainy Season Hero who takes on a frog-like form. Her quirk (hero power) allows her to stick to walls, jump long distances, secrete sticky liquid, and camouflage herself.

Cosplayer Ashmi ‘ashmicos’ decided to show off her take of the loveable amphibian, and it’s amazing just how accurate it is to the TV show.

A major part of Froppy’s costume is her huge goggles that sit upon her head, and anyone who’s seen the show will recognise these immediately. The cosplayer recreated them with insane accuracy, and even painted detailing on them to make it look as though the lenses reflect light like in the show.

Our favorite thing about the outfit is the green bodysuit, as it houses all the details from the hero’s costume – including the webbed feet and frog legs.

Ashmi also added the character’s arm cuffs, waistband, and neck brace to make them stand out and give them a 3D touch for more realism and accuracy.

While the costume artist’s outfit has a more homemade feel, it just adds a personal touch to an already-badass character and ties the whole look together perfectly – we love it.

My Hero Academia finally returned for its fourth season on October 12 after a lengthy wait that left anime fans itching for more after the cliffhanger of the third chapter.

It airs weekly on Crunchyroll and Funimation, and continues the story of Izuku Midoriya and Class 1-A’s adventures as they journey into herohood, and is available to be streamed simulcast in both the US and Japan.

Avatar: The Last Airbender fans love Toph for her tomboyish vibe despite being raised like a princess, but a brilliant cosplayer managed to capture her elegant side by creating a refined version of her usual outfit.

The heroes in Avatar: The Last Airbender all bring something unique to the table. However, Toph is particularly remarkable because she managed to become an earth-bending master despite being blind since birth.

Initially, she wanted to prove to her parents that blindness didn’t make her weak. But she became one of the most powerful characters in the show and a valuable Team Avatar member.

Toph Beifong turned her back on a sheltered childhood to become a powerful earth-bender.

Toph is a popular choice among cosplayers too. But while we’ve seen everything from her traditional get-up to an elegant dress she once wore, it’s hard to find one more unique than Emma J.I.Q Rubini’s Art Nouveau Toph.

“You see nothing once, and you’ve seen it a thousand times,” she said, referring to a quote. “Y’all remember when we used to have cons? I’m so happy I went to Katsucon this year since it ended up being the only one I went to.”

“Here’s the cosplay I made for it,” she added. “Art Nouveau Toph! I am incredibly proud of the work I put into it, and I’m happy I got to wear it to such a pretty con! One day maybe I’ll wear it again.”

Emma managed to capture all the crucial elements of Toph’s everyday outfit. It includes the green and beige garments, the hairstyle tucked under a headband with a flower, and of course, contact lenses to match her eyes.

However, she’s added some exotic details in line with a style known as Art Nouveau. It combines elegantly woven tapestries with encrusted jewels and other bits and pieces to add some class.

Cosplayers and their fans know how much time and effort it takes to re-create an outfit faithfully. However, it takes creativity, talent, and courage to add your flair. Emma nailed it, and the thousands of likes she’s getting are a testament to that.
