A talented My Hero Academia fan brought fan favorite Ochako Uraraka to life with her incredibly accurate cosplay take on the lovable gravity hero.

Uraraka is one of the series’ main protagonists, and has captured the hearts of fans around the world with her down-to-earth, humble personality.

In the show, the heroine trains alongside main character Izuku Midoriya at U.A. High – a school for budding superheroes – in the hopes of one day becoming a Pro Hero.

She’s so popular that she’s often the subject of fan projects such as cosplay, and one skilled admirer decided to bring the gravity queen to lift with a true-to-life costume.

FunimationUraraka is a favorite among MHA fans.

Incredibly accurate Uraraka cosplay

Cosplay artist Jojo from ‘joji_cos’ shared her take on the loveable heroine in her U.A. High training outfit, and it’s incredibly realistic, making it appear like she’s jumped right out of the TV screen.

When the students participate in their hero classes, they mainly wear a blue, red, and white skinsuit, unless they’re permitted to wear their proper superhero gear.

Jojo nailed the suit down to a tee, as well as Uraraka’s signature haircut – a whimsical shoulder-length bob with elongated bangs.

The Brazilian cosplayer has also dressed up as a more casual version of the Zero Gravity hero, and though basic, somehow manages to pull off her style perfectly.

In this take, she uses sweatbands to mimic the heroine’s armbands, and also wears a black tank top reminiscent of the civilian clothing she sports when not in costume.

What pulls the look together, though, is the makeup used to give Jojo rosy cheeks and large eyes to really get in character and to capture her spirit.

While joji_cos is only a small-time cosplayer in terms of Instagram numbers with only 1,350 followers, her other designs from shows such as Pokemon and Love Live are equally as adorable.

My Hero Academia is currently in the midst of its fourth season at this time of writing, and airs weekly on both Funimation and Crunchyroll.

Attack on Titan cosplayers have been dishing up their best cosplays in recent weeks to prepare themselves for the end of the series, but this Mikasa Ackerman piece is something else.

The fourth and final season of Attack on Titan ends on February 15, which isn’t too far away. It’s a bittersweet moment for fans who have followed the show since it’s release back in 2013.

However, that hasn’t stopped fans from making the most out of it. Instead, there’s been an influx of impressive cosplays as fans have dressed up as their favorite characters from the show.

The main characters received a new look in the latest season, which opened the door for cosplayers to take on new challenges and ideas. Mikasa Ackerman’s new look has been a popular choice.

Mikasa is one of the most powerful characters in Attack on Titan.

Chandary, a popular cosplayer from France, transformed herself into Mikasa and it turned out great. Her fans were stunned with the final product, describing it as everything from “iconic” to “the best reason for humanity to survive.”

“Are you excited for Mikasa new look in Season?” said Chandary. “I was able to do this [cosplay] thanks to my friend and waifu reitoneeo who lent me her jacket. Thank you [so much].”

All the details are spot on. Chandary has included the shirt, scarf, jacket, suspenders, and straps. The highlight, however, is definitely the hair, which looks about as real as it gets.

It’s always nice for anime fans to see their favorite characters brought to life in incredible detail. You don’t even have to be a cosplay enthusiast to appreciate it. 

Chandary has done an excellent job, and there’s no doubt she’s helped people get excited about what’s to come in the last few episodes.
