In this cosplay guide, we will provide the items you will need to create your own epic Izuku Midoriya costume for your next anime con or Halloween event.
On My Hero Academia, Izuku Midoriya is the cheerful main protagonist of the show, a student without a Quirk who was given his ability by All Might. Small in stature, Izuku still has a lot of spirit and built up his skill and confidence after just a few episodes of the series.
Izuku is instantly recognizable with his greenish-black hair, big friendly eyes and oversized school uniform, making him an unforgettable and iconic anime character. An Izuku costume is a great option for any cosplayer who loves My Hero Academia and wants a knock-out look for their next convention.

How to Dress Like Izuku Midoriya from My Hero Academia
Izuku’s hair is one of his more noticeable features. Wildly puffy and unruly, his hair is black with a bright emerald green tint to it. This might seem like a tricky style to recreate, but with the right cosplay wig, you can still get Izuku’s hair to look authentic.
Use a hairbrush to tease thick locks of the wig into a puffy style. You can also use green hair dye instead if you want an extra challenge for your costume.
Izuku has very large, wide green eyes and four diamond-shaped freckles on both his cheeks.
You can use eye makeup such as eyeliner and brow pencils to create a big-eye anime effect, and if you’re unsure where to start, check out anime eye video tutorials for help.
For the diamond freckles, you can draw them on using a dark eyebrow pencil or Halloween face paint and a thin brush.
Izuku Midoriya Makeup Tutorial:
Izuku wears an oversized school uniform consisting of a white dress shirt, a red thickly-knotted necktie, a long gray blazer with turquoise accent stripes and gold buttons, and wrinkled blue dress pants.
You can find these items online from retail websites and cosplay websites, or you can look for a pre-made Izuku costume outfit.
Izuku’s original hero bodysuit consisted of a green jumpsuit with a red belt and matching elbow pads, knee pads and gloves, as well as a pair of red boots. He wore a mask with long ear-like extensions and a respirator along with it.
If you’d rather choose the suit over the school uniform you can purchase a pre-made zentai suit in the My Hero Academia style.
He wore a number of different suits throughout the series, including one with a turquoise mask with long rabbit ears attached. With so much room for variety and choices, this is the perfect costume if you like to have a lot of material to work with!
Izuku’s giant red boots are something he also wears with his school uniform.
Pull the cuffs of your pant legs up over the top of the boots the way Izuku does when he’s in his school uniform.
