As you can see, All Might has a few major costume alterations here. This genderbent cosplay trades in the man's legged suit for a tight bodysuit. The look makes up for the over with yellow-red thigh high boots, and the costume only gets better from there.
From the waist up, the Silver Age costume is pretty spot-on. The red torso features the white detailing from All Might's original costume, and it even has the perfect cape holders. When you combine the precise outfit with the fan's colored contacts and gravity-defying bangs, this becomes a cosplay Izuku Midoriya would fanboy over.
Of course, this isn't the only My Hero Academia cosplay out there. With the series growing more and more popular, countless fans are dressing up as their favorite heroes at conventions, and plenty are getting viral love for their looks. Most recently, one sweet mother's take on Mama Midoriya got the fandom buzzing, so its only a matter of time until a genderbent Aizawa makes their debut.
