My Hero Academia cosplayers have a large cast of lovable characters brimming with personality available for them to recreate, but one artist decided to give her take on one of the more explosive heroes in the series Katsuki Bakugo.

The manga/anime centered around the next generation of heroes is one of the biggest franchises around at the moment, making it a consistent source of unique and inventive cosplays.

Cosplayer ‘Tokidoki’ has a long line of incredible genderbend creations, and her take on the show’s hot-head perfectly captures all the attitude as well as fierce ambition the character in known for.

In the show, Bakugo’s hero outfit consists of two grenade bracers fitted on both hands to store his sweat then release large explosions with his quirk. Also hanging around his belt are grenades, and he wears metal knee guards.

Tokidoki brought all of the essential pieces of Bakugo’s outfit to the real world while giving them some fine tuning.

Though she preserved his head-piece that mirrors explosive blasts with adjoining facemask, she gave his suit a more flexible vibe splitting the one piece tunic from the manga into a two.

From there out, she stays true to the series’ design for him by expertly recreating the braces around the arms while keeping the orange, black and green theme throughout.

The cosplayer recreated the hero from head to toe with her long black boots that lead up to Bakugo’s menacing knee pads.

No cosplay is complete without a bit of spirit added into the outfit, and Tokidoki absolutely nails Bakugo’s attitude by hilariously posing over a defeated Midoriya cosplayer.

Fans of My Hero Academia still have a bit of a wait to go for the anime’s October return, but incredible cosplays like Tokidoki’s could hold some over while waiting for Season 4.
