A talented My Hero Academia fan put passion and creativity together, creating a sizzling cosplay to portray Class 1-A’s hot-headed hero, Bakugo.
The MHA fanbase have created multiple incredible cosplays in the past for the dozens of students at U.A. High. We’ve seen cosplays ranging from the adorable to the terrifying, as the series lends itself to a wide-array of characters in both camps of the ‘good vs evil’ narrative.
By now, fans know that Kacchan toes that line and, at times, goes too far. But there’s a plethora of devoted fans, that are firmly ‘Team Bakugo,’ who create some of the best depictions for the anime’s cast.
Following that tradition, cosplayer ‘_kissmyashe’ used her graphic design quirk to elevate her Bakugo outfit even more. While her costume already had a lot for fans to love, she lit up the shot with some magic in post.

Channeled my inner Bakugo, which wasn’t hard tbh?? – HEY, Bakugo stans do you only like Bakugo because he’s good-looking and strong⁉️ because he’s rude af. I LOVE his character design but the dude has an anger problem. – Photo by: Me . . . . . . . . . #bakugoukatsuki #bakugocosplay #cosplaygirlsofinstagram #animecosplayer #blackgirlscosplay #ashecosplay #myheroacademiacosplay #mhacosplay #afrocosplay #blackcosplay #cosplayphotoshoot #blackanime
“I’m learning to create composites,” kissmyashe said of the finished product. “I love fusing reality with fantasy. I’ve always been intrigued by that. How did I do?”
Of course Bakugo’s quirk is violently explosive more often than not, but the cool aesthetic of the fire she chose gives it a much slicker look to an otherwise imposing character.
But Ashe also added a personal touch. Not only did the costume come with the orange-rimmed flares that come out from behind the manga character’s mask, she also added a bit of orange tips to her hair that lights up with the rest of the look.
It’s fun to see your favorite anime characters brought to life when cosplayers suit up, and when they go the extra step to add those finer details, that’s when the design shines.
