An Adventure Time cosplayer went viral after sharing her true-to-life take on Marceline. The artist’s mind-blowing transformation into the Vampire Queen will leave fans of the Cartoon Network series in awe.

Adventure Time made its debut on Cartoon Network in 2010, and came from the mind of Pendleton Ward. The animation became a worldwide phenomena, as viewers connected with its surreal world and vibrant cast of characters.

Prolific artist Hendoart transformed into the 1,000 year old heroine, and wowed with her incredibly accurate depiction. The artist posed with a jaw-dropping prop recreation of the character’s iconic red axe bass, which she plays throughout the story.

The incredible life-size instrument was made by prop maker ‘odinmakes‘ who included little details such as the scratches on the body. Hendo captures Marceline’s grunge inspired style, as her flannel shirt drapes over her shoulder.

In another shot, the cosplayer gave viewers a glimpse of how she captured the vampire’s iconic look. Using face paint, she creatively mirrored Marceline’s pale white undead skin tone. The artist also mirrored her black lipstick while baring her fangs.

In the series, the heroine does not drink blood to feed herself, and instead drains the color from objects. Hendo holds a red apple in her left hand to symbolize this, truly bringing the character to life.

This isn’t the only Adventure Time character the cosplay artist has tackled. On June 25 she uploaded an extremely creative take on the lovable talking video game console BMO.
