A talented Steins;Gate cosplayer went viral on Instagram after transforming into one of the show’s lead protagonists, Kurisu Makise. 

Originally a visual novel on PC and Xbox in 2009, Steins;Gate has since become one of the most critically acclaimed animes of all time. The series follows a group of young scientists who discover time travel. 

A skilled cosplayer celebrated the hit show by bringing the series’ scientist, Kurisu Makise, to life. She looks so much like the character, it’s almost as if the heroine has warped out of the screen.

The popular series opens with “mad scientist” Rintarou Okabe discovering an anomaly in time. The eccentric protagonist soon figures out time travel with the help of acclaimed physicist, Kurisu.

Cosplayer Madi ‘evvils’ shared her amazing take on the heroine on Instagram. The artist mirrored the beloved character’s quirky style, accurately wrapping belts around the arms of her brown jacket.

Madi re-created an iconic scene from the anime when the physicist drinks her “Dk Pepper” soda. Hilariously, Okabe in the story refers to the beverage as “an intellectual drink for the chosen ones.”

The cosplayer posed as the Steins;Gate character for photographer ‘paoimages’, who perfectly captured her holding the signature food item while wearing her iconic outfit. 

Evvil’s costume is full of details, from her black shorts to her red-tie and white shirt. The anime fan even included the white belt and gold belt buckle – effortlessly bringing the scientist to life.

Despite the character’s reluctance to join the protagonist on his pursuit of time travel, Makise eventually gets roped into his experiments after sending a text message back in time.

While the show has many humorous moments, the anime is often praised for his dark plot points, and mind-bending science fiction story about multiple timelines.

My Hero Academica isn’t all about the main characters since there are plenty of excellent minor ones too, and one cosplayer stunned her fans by dressing up as Rabbit Hero Mirko.

Mirko is an awesome character for many reasons. My Hero Academica fans love her tough, straightforward, and tenacious personality. However, they also love the fact she takes on intense situations with a big smile.

Mirko also has a somewhat zen-like approach to life, which is a stark contrast to her ferocity. She takes every day as it comes and has no qualms about putting her life on the line for the greater good. All in all, it makes her the perfect fifth-ranked professional hero.

My Hero Academia cosplayers often dress up as main characters and fan-favorites. However, they still show minor characters like Rabbit Hero Mirko some love too, and that’s exactly what Julia (also known as capulet.cos) has done.

“Joining a team is for weaklings,” she wrote, in reference to Mirko’s belief that teams are for cowards.

“More Bunny content for y’all. She’s definitely my favorite character from [My Hero Academia] and [I] love the amount of confidence this cosplay gives me.”

Julia looks absolutely stunning as Rabbit Hero Mirko. She’s included everything from the trademark bunny ears, white hair, fluffy collar, and gloves to a picture-perfect replication of the outfit itself.

It even has the crescent moon symbol on her chest, which ties in with the name of some of Mirko’s moves. Luna Ring, Luna Fall, and Luna Arc all revolve around Mirko’s insanely powerful leg kicks.

Unfortunately, it seems like the wig is a bit of a hassle to wear. “I hate the wig so much,” said Julia. “It tangles so fast.”

Still, it looks fantastic and was definitely worth the trouble. My Hero Academia fans have been pouring in to praise Julia and show their support, and the numbers keep on rising.
