A skilled cosplayer took Himiko Toga from the hit anime My Hero Academia and transformed her into a real-life horror that is sure to raise the hair on any fan’s arms.

Toga is literally the show’s most bloodthirsty villain as her Transform quirk (superpower) allows her to shape-shift into another person’s appearance upon consuming some of their blood.

One talented cosplayer decided to bring the evil yet somehow lovable girl to life, and her blood-chillingly take will terrify the living daylights out of you.

Horrifying Toga cosplay

Instagram cosplayer 'Blood Raven' shared her haunting costume to her page, where she looked insanely similar to the murderous My Hero Academia antagonist.

Not only is her hair styled in two perfectly recreated messy buns, the artist also nailed the outfit too, with the character’s infamous black smile mask placed ominously around her neck.

The USA-based cosplayer also mimicked Toga’s black pipe mouth mask, which gives her an ever more horrifying look, and ties the whole thing together.

In another shot, the artist captures the villain's menacing smile as she holds onto her teeth-styled mask and looks upwards with yellow piercing eyes. 

The photoset was taken by Rudy from ‘rudyphototaker’, and the edits made afterwards really bring the photographs to life with terrifying style. 

Blood Raven’s incredible work has resonated with many on her Instagram, as she currently has over 53,800 followers as of this time of writing.
