Katsuki Bakugo

James Memos, a 20-year-old Santa Fe freshman, cosplayed as “My Hero Academia” character Katsuki Bakugo. He decided to cosplay the angry character because he loves how Bakugo thinks he’s better than everyone else.

“I feel like that arrogant persona is something that I identify with quite a bit,” he said.

It took him a week to make the costume and he used foam from a gym mat to make the grenades, Memos said.

He advises first-time cosplayers to “just do it.”

“It can make you nervous,” he said. “But once you're in costume, it's so much easier to talk to people. Instead of having some sort of cold approach, you could just be like ‘hey what's up Batman,’ and then you're instantly friends.”




Joseph McDugald (middle), 18, UF freshman, is arrested by the University Police Department for refusing to leave an RTS bus in front of the Marston Science Library on Monday, Oct. 26, 2021. He was booked at the Alachua County Jail and released on Tuesday afternoon.
