A My Hero Academia fan posted her incredible cosplay that faithfully recreates the gravity hero, and is so accurate that she looks mindblowingly similar to the anime character.

My Hero Academia is one of the most popular anime series currently running, and recently returned after a year hiatus for its fourth season on October 12.

The show envisions a world where humans evolve to have super powers called quirks, and one professional cosplayer shocked fans after sharing her take on the lovable hero Uravity, and looks exactly like her.

Perfect Uravity cosplay

In the anime show, students attend the prestigious U.A. High School where they train in hopes to one day become a professional hero. One of those students is Ochaco Uraraka, and her hero name is Uravity, as her special power is zero gravity.

Cosplayer and MHA fan ‘honeyrabbiit’ posted her take on the character on her Instagram page, and surprised fans with her almost identical appearance to the TV show hero.

The talented artist faithfully mirrored Uravity’s costume, as the hero sports giant wrist bracers, a two-piece clickable belt, and used the perfect material to re-create her iconic boots that have become a staple to her signature look.

According to the show’s lore, each of these pieces of her costume negate the side effects of Uravity’s zero-gravity power, which causes the super-heroine to get nauseated if she uses her quirk too much, and the talented cosplayer nailed each piece.

This isn’t the first time honeyrabbiit has cosplayed from the hero-based anime, as her Instagram hosts her other designs – such as an incredible female twist on the shows protagonist Izuku Midoriya.

However just like her Uraraka cosplay, it’s shocking how much she looks like ‘Froppy’ – a frog-like hero studying in the same class – proving her immense talent to become the characters that she creates costumes for.

A Neon Genesis Evangelion cosplayer made waves on Instagram after sharing her insanely accurate take on protagonist Asuka Langley.

One of the most influential animes of all time, Neon Genesis Evangelion helped shape the Mecha genre for decades to come after its groundbreaking debut in 1995.

A talented cosplayer honored the beloved series by bringing one of its most popular characters, Asuka Langley, to life with her mind-blowing recreation of the heroine.

Asuka is one of the most popular characters from the iconic Mecha anime.

Evangelion’s Asuka brought to life with incredible cosplay

The anime takes place in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo where alien beings called Angels have humanity on the brink of destruction. Characters like Asuka Langley pilot giant Mecha called Evangelion to fight back the enormous threat.

Cosplayer Esther ‘keikocosplay’ transformed into the heroine on Instagram, and wowed with her incredibly faithful portrayal. The artist nailed the character’s look, mirroring her flowing auburn hair that runs down her back, as well as her signature red clip accessories. 

Photographer ‘MichelTakuma’ captured Keiko posing in Langley’s red pilot bodysuit. Her depiction of her uniform is full of details, such as her black under-armor with circuits, and the green light that runs across the top of her neckline.

In another picture taken by ‘bcwphoto’, the cosplayer re-created an iconic scene from the anime where Asuka is wounded in the eye. The character is often depicted wearing an eyepatch after the important scene. Keiko’s gorgeous true-to-life depiction of the moment is chilling. 

Evangelion was written and directed by renowned Japanese artist Hideaki Anno. Despite its release over two decades ago, the series is as popular as its ever been. Its influential story has had a major impact on the medium.

Those that have never seen the iconic shows are in luck as the original adaptation can be watched on Netflix right now. Its multiple spinoffs and sequels can also be caught on streaming services Funimation and Crunchyroll.
