My Hero Academia’s Froppy jumps into action in incredible cosplay

My Hero Academia‘s Froppy is one of the most beloved characters in the incredibly popular anime franchise, and cosplayer ‘anongnoon’ brought the hero-in-training to life with her fantastic take on the Class 1-A student.

My Hero Academia follows the story of Izuku Midorya, a young boy born in Japan without a superpower, known in the show as a “quirk,” in a world full of heroes and villains using their unnatural abilities to further the sides of either good or evil.

After being gifted with the legendary force of ‘One For All’ by his idol All Might, Midorya attends U.A. High School to learn how to harness his abilities and become a true hero, joining Class 1-A as they study under the tutelage of Eraserhead. Unsurprisingly, there are plenty of interesting, exciting, and loveable characters in the classroom, but perhaps none capture the heart of the audience more than the shy Tsuyu ‘Froppy’ Asui.

While she may have a quiet personality, Froppy’s determination and power make her a fan-favorite, with her Quirk granting her the same abilities as a frog, meaning she can stick to walls, jump massive distances, and even use her incredibly long tongue to wrap up enemies in the heat of battle.

Anong has accounted for every last detail in Froppy’s look, with her recognizable goggles planted firmly on her head, complete with the gold finish and the green lenses. The same green line that runs across the face of Froppy when she’s in full battle gear is also present, while her hair is parted into three sections, with her bangs forced into a spike that comes down her forehead and onto the bridge of her nose.

Asio’s bodysuit is there for all to see, including the white harness she wears, and even her gloves and cuffs have been crafted to perfection, with the large green buckles present and accounted for to add to the accuracy of this look.

Anong also uploaded a full body shot of her cosplay, complete with the same frog-like boots that Froppy wears in the anime, explaining that she designed and wore the outfit at Japan Expo.

Even her belt is perfect, including the massive green discs that go around her waist as part of the outfit from My Hero Academia.

This isn’t the first time that Anong has wowed fans with her creations, previously showing off an incredible version of Demon Slayer’s Nezuko that stunned fans of the anime.

My Hero Academia is currently mid-way through it’s fourth season, with episodes of the anime being dual-broadcasted for the first time, meaning those who prefer the English dub get to see every episode at the same time as those who watch the original Japanese version.

Writer, Director, and Try Guys member Eugene Lee Yang has absolutely blown Avatar: The Last Airbender fans away with his flawless cosplays, recreating not just Azula but Zuko too.

Since rising to internet fame with his work on YouTube series ‘the Try Guys,’ Eugene Lee Yang has established himself as a creator in his own right, producing many hugely viral videos exploring LGBTQ+ and Asian-American identities.

Each year in what he describes as his ‘Asian Halloween Tradition,’ Eugene cosplays different Asian characters from popular movies, TV shows, books and more to celebrate different aspects of those cultures, and works alongside a team to flex their outstanding costume and makeup skills.

In the past, he’s recreated characters like Mulan, Magnus Bane from the Mortal Instruments Series, and many more dating back to Halloween of 2009 when he cosplayed Russell from the animated film UP.

But this year, Eugene and his talented team treated fans to not just one, but two Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplays, and they were both as fantastic as each other.

Eugene cosplays Zuko and Azula

First, in a post that at the time of writing has 99,000 likes, he recreated the banished prince from the Fire Nation, Zuko.

Eugene models the brilliant costume by Kinetic Cosplay perfectly, the bold oranges and reds of the fabric creating a vibrant fire-like glow, which combined with the mix of silk trims and various types of fabric give a perfectly dynamic edge to the look.

His makeup artist Arianna Blean has also reformed Zuko’s signature eye scar, the scar wax looking intricate enough to be realistic, but also with a slightly animated feel in keeping with the original art style.

To fans’ surprise, Eugene even pulled out a second Avatar look to celebrate Halloween this year, also having a go at one of the show’s most popular villains, Fire Nation princess Azula in beautiful photos taken by JD Renes.

The absolutely stunning images show the YouTube star surrounded by lightning, filling the images with a mesmerizing blue-white glow. The black and gold plates contribute to a powerful silhouette, with the wig by danekez sculpted perfectly to look like the original, even keeping with the gold hairpiece in the center of the head.

Eugene put both characters together in the same image in a post that gained 40,000 likes, and even participated in a TikTok trend where he wipes a mirror to switch between the two characters, injecting the video with electric personality.

His series of posts about the cosplays have garnered hundreds of thousands of likes all together, and has already got people excited about what Eugene will pull out of the bag next Halloween.
