My Hero Academia is a “magical high school” anime series about Izuku Midoriya and other aspiring superheroes who train to become crime fighters. Izuku and his rambunctious friend Katsuki Bakugo admire All Might, and they will stop at nothing to become world-class heroes like him.
While Izuku’s rivalry with Katsuki is special in itself, their friendship and animosity towards each other is what makes this relationship so fascinating. It’s a classic relationship, where Izuku wants to prove he’s a hero, while Bakugo has a chip on his shoulder bigger than his ego and will do anything to make it so. Izuku is not only a thug, he is also a complicated character who has to fight against his insecurities and fear, as Izuku seems about to overpower him and leave him behind. Let’s take a look at some fantastic costumes of this combustible protagonist, which bring Bakugo to life. Find our My Hero Academia Hoodies as well as our My Hero Academia Sweaters on our online store with our collections of clothing representing your favorite heroes.
9) In Your Waiting
Why not start with a nice cosplay of a well-dressed Bakugo who, for once, isn’t completely rabid? Bakugo isn’t as shallow as you think, and he’s a capable guy with some insecurities. But he has no intention of announcing it to the world.
This cosplayer dressed up as Bakugo and is waiting for a friend outside. He may have taken time off from a party to reflect on his life, or he may have gotten into an argument with another guest. It’s not clear, and it’s fascinating to watch. What do you think, Kacchan?
8) Equipment Check
Then there’s a cosplayer who meticulously constructed Bakugo’s entire hero costume, and it’s no simple task. Among AU students, Bakugo has a particularly intricate and detailed costume, which inspires cosplayers to replicate it.
We have to give this cosplay an A+ grade. The grenade-throwing gloves, the boots and knee pads, the chest armor, the wig, the gloves… we can’t find a single flaw or error in the construction of this costume! Even the posture and look are good, as Bakugo double checks his equipment before he leaves.
7) Murder By Queen Explosion
Our third cosplay, which we’ll call a genre cosplay because it stays true to the character while adding some new touches, is our favorite. The ocean background is a good choice, perhaps to reflect Izuku’s seaside training with All Might.
The second cosplayer has a similar look to Bakugo, although his hair is ashy blonde and stands out, as does his expression. His costume, meanwhile, is a slimmer, sleeker version of Bakugo’s outfit that shows off his shoulders rather than the shoulder armor of the first entry’s outfit. Despite those pomegranate-shaped gloves, she seems to be light on her feet.
6) Ranged Fighter
Bakugo is not a brawler like Rikido Sato or Eijiro Kirishima; instead, he prefers to stand back and throw explosive force at his enemies, either alone or as fire support for an ally. It works in both cases.
This cosplayer introduced a new perspective to the character: NERF guns! On the right hand is a wrist-mounted dart launcher, and this Bakugo is covered in ammo belts so he can fight for a long time. You have to admit that Bakugo would be just the type to do that.
5) Lady Bakugo # 2
Katsuki Bakugo’s cosplay photos are so fantastic that we felt compelled to include another one. This time, Bakugo is not on the beach, not fighting or even striking a fighting pose. She is calm but alert during a moment of leisure.
Bugs Bunny is wearing a denim jacket and jeans for lounging around the house, but her costume is perfect for this cosplay encounter. She looks like a high school girl hanging out before school starts, and we love how elegant and feminine this cosplayer looks for the character, from her gorgeous wig to her exquisite makeup. She is both strong and attractive.
4) A real student!
Did you have fun going to gym class in high school? There was always time to run, stretch, and especially to play dodgeball and basketball! In this cosplay photo, Bakugo is center stage, all business in his gym outfit.
Outside, the other students are in their normal outfits, but Bakugo, being the athletic guy that he is, prefers to practice with subs. His expression “huh, whatever” is also popular among us. He is not known for his charisma in front of the camera. Isn’t it time for gym class yet?
3) Punk katsuki !
Punk is not dead! This cosplayer proves it. The punk counterculture movement originated in England in the 1970s and spread to the United States in the 1980s, led by bands like the Sex Pistols and the Ramones. The look was defined by leather jackets, mohawks, studs and a crude attitude.
Dressing up as a character and then seeing what they look like in new clothes that reflect their personality and history is half the fun of cosplay. Bakugo is a punk who hangs out on the street like the badass that he is. So we love these grenade tattoos to match his hero outfit.
2) Power Couple
Many fans like to create their own headcanons by mixing and matching their favorite characters. Many fans choose a couple to make their own personal headcanon, and many people create their own couples. Only the eyes of these two cosplayers are fixed on each other.
In this photo, they are two passionate blondes having an intimate moment. In particular, cosplayer Bakugo is sporting a meticulously detailed and precise wig, with the top button of his shirt undone to demonstrate his punk attitude. Not bad at all!
1) Friends Forever
The last entry in the turn genre on our list is another delight, and it’s also one of the most unique. Kirishima is one of the few people who can understand and handle Bakugo’s unstable nature, and they are good friends.
The third season of My Hero Academia is called Class 3-2 and takes place after All Might’s retirement. In this scene, we see Mina Ashido for the first time as a student at U.A. High, where Midoriya is also enrolled. Lady Bakugo looks like she’s having fun with her friends, while Kirishima looks tough and ready for a fight. We also love those flaming orange ribbons in her hair.
