A talented cosplay duo transformed into Avatar: The Last Airbender's Katara and Sokka, bringing the Water Tribe siblings to life with incredibly accurate costumes.

The Last Airbender ended its run in 2008 on Nickelodeon, but the groundbreaking series' legacy has continued to endure as millions connected with its story about bending the elements of earth, air, water, and fire.

Two cosplayers shared their mindblowing Katara and Sokka collaboration on social media, and will be sure to wow fans with how much they look just like the characters from the beloved animation.

The 2005 animation was a worldwide hit for Nickelodeon.

The story begins with Water Tribe siblings Katara and Sokka discovering Avatar Aang, who has been missing for over hundred years as the world is thrown into chaos in his absence.

Cosplayers 'vsol_cosplay' and 'Dr. Gerro' teamed up to pull off the perfect recreation of the brother and sister, and nail their look with insane accuracy.

The two collaborated with photographer Alexandre Abdoulaev who captured the talented artists as they posed as the Avatar characters that could be mistaken for a scene out of the show.

They shared more photos of their shoot on Instagram, giving fans a glimpse into how detailed their outfits are, with Vsol faithfully creating Katara's blue and white trim outfit, as well as her parted hair loops.

Both cosplayers embody their characters in the stunning photo as they stand back to back with snow falling around them, which they encounter when reaching the Northern Tribe at the end of season one.

Gerro is also one of the best Sokka's we've ever seen, shaving the sides of his head to capture the main character's traditional warrior hairstyle, and even hilariously re-enacting an iconic scene from the show where he whispers "Water Tribe" as he and his sibling exits the room.


Avatar fans have a lot to be excited for in 2020 as Netflix announced that they are bringing back the popular animation in the form of a live-action drama on their streaming platform.

Nickelodeon is also re-releasing the entire series on Blu-Ray in a collector's set next month in celebration of the show's 15th anniversary.
