An incredibly talented My Hero Academia cosplayer shared her take on Nejire Hado from The Big 3, and it’s so accurate it’s almost as though she’s stepped right out of the anime itself.

My Hero Academia blew a hole in the anime scene when it first debuted in 2016, as people fell in love with the show’s premise of superheroes and abilities called ‘quirks.’

It centers around Izuku Midoriya who is born quirkless, but inherits a power from the number one hero All Might, who then strives to become the best himself by attending U.A. High School.

The Big 3 are the school’s top three students, and one of them is Nejire Hado, a fan favourite. Cosplayer ‘Penberly’ decided to try her hand at creating an outfit based on the heroine, and shared her incredibly accurate take.

My Hero Academia’s Nejire comes to life

In the show, Nejire wears a skin-tight bodysuit for her hero costume, which has a high black collar placed along the neckline.

Not only does Penberly nail this perfectly, she also gets the arm wraps right, as well as the black bands around her legs, which really make it seem as though she’s come straight from the show and into real life.

What pulls the look together, though, is the heroine’s pastel purple hair, which reaches all the way down to her thighs, and also twists into two spiral horns on her head.

Pen has also covered other characters from the show before too, such as Mina Ashido – a fellow classmate of Izuku Midoriya.

In her portrayal, the cosplayer pulls off Mina’s look perfectly with her pink skin, and alien-like eyes, which is rather fitting considering the character is known by her alias Ridley Hero: Alien Queen.

While the hero’s signature yellow horns aren’t visible, Pen more than makes up for it with the accurate wig, which is an almost one for one representation of Mina’s shaggy hair.

The California-based cosplayer’s work is a hit with fans, as she currently boasts almost 98,000 followers on her Instagram page as of the time of writing.

Not only does she cover My Hero Academia really well, Pen has also created outfits from hit games such as Overwatch, and other anime shows such as Dragon Ball Z and Fullmetal Alchemist.


My Hero Academia cosplayer steals the spotlight as colossal Mt. Lady

Mt. Lady loves being the center of attention in My Hero Academia, but a talented cosplayer has stolen the spotlight from her with a colossal transformation that popped off hard on social media.

Yu Takeyama, better known as Mt. Lady, isn’t one of the central characters in My Hero Academia. She isn’t even in the top ten professional hero rankings. However, she is still ranked highly, coming in at Number 23.

But what she lacks in rank, she makes up for in size. Mt. Lady’s quirk, Gigantification, allows her to become 20 meters tall. It makes her stick out like a sore thumb, which she loves since she’s obsessed with the idea of fame and money.

Still, despite her materialistic ambitions and imperfections, she’s a true hero at heart. Her strength and size have come in handy multiple times, and she’s helped saved countless lives.

Mt. Lady’s quirk makes her as tall as some buildings.

If Mt. Lady existed in real life, there’s no doubt she’d spend a lot of time posing in her hero outfit on social media. However, if that was her game, she’d definitely lose to a cosplayer named Sara Mei Kasai.

Sara has a little less than a million followers on Instagram, which is insane. But her cosplays are so good, every time she posts one, the numbers keep on climbing. Now, she’s outdone herself with a phenomenal Mt. Lady cosplay, and her fans love it.

“A NEW COSPLAY? YES! IT’S MT LADY!” she wrote. “Do you prefer pic 1 or 2? I couldn’t choose.”

Sara stole the spotlight in the outfit. She captured every detail, from the purple, white, and orange skintight bodysuit with three diamond-shaped dots, to the purple gloves, mask, and horns. And let’s not forget about the blonde hair. Mt. Lady herself would be impressed.

But while fans were busy trying to decide which of the two pictures they preferred, she posted another one. It was a before-and-after shot of the transformation and provided a more zoomed out perspective.

The two posts have almost 80,000 likes between them, which is impressive. However, it seems like just another day’s work for the talented cosplayer.

Sara has set the bar high for other Mt. Lady cosplayers to follow. She deserves to be in the spotlight for making this piece look so good, and she’ll undoubtedly remain there for quite some time.
