Well, this cosplayer has done an amazing job of crafting some of the best Hinata cosplays from the Haikyuu anime.

Unique Aspect: Aesthetically pleasing, looks real
Hyakkimaru is a character that maybe hasn’t said a word for like 20 episodes and was still popular enough to make on many character polls. Zumi has done an amazing cosplay which really took our hearts and melted them down due to the sheer quality and details added to it.
The makeup is insane and the cosplay looks like he’s an isekai version of Hyakkimaru who got transferred into the human world. The photography is also insane, and overall, this is my personal favorite cosplay due to the sheer amount of effort and an anime-native feel added to it.
All in all, if you’re a makeup expert, then Hyakkimaru cosplay will make sure to amaze every single otaku out there.
Tatsumaki from One Punch Man

The S-Class badass but somehow cute-looking superhero, Tatsumaki, has always been a fan favorite for a variety of reasons. While we won’t go deep into the One Punch Man lore, let’s just talk about how flawless this particular cosplay is. Especially if you consider the background and the overall color selection, it’s amazing. Now, if you look at the actual cosplay, she’s done an amazing job of overall portraying Tatsumaki’s personality, and she nailed it when it comes to anime-oriented clothes.
