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.

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.

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.


League cosplayer comes out from the shadows as amazing Akali

Ever seen a League of Legends cosplay so good that Riot can’t help but share it with the world? Well, now you have, with Sweet Angel’s take on Akali taking League players by storm.

Akali is one of League of Legends’ most popular characters to cosplay. Whether it be her default skin, or the mega-popular K/DA variant, people love to show off as the Ionian assassin.

However, few manage to grab the eyes of Riot as much as Sweet Angel. The talented Italian cosplayer decided to take on Akali as her most recent project, and while the costume looks simple, it was anything but.

Akali is one of the most popular League champions to cosplay, but few catch the eyes of Riot.

“I thought it was a simple costume, but it required a lot more attention and time than I thought,” she told fans on her website.

It took Sweet Angel about 100 hours all up to create the Akali cosplay ⁠— and you can see every bit of hard work and time that went into it. From the handmade wig, to the dress, and even Akali’s smoke bombs, Sweet Angel didn’t miss a beat.

Everything that you see was basically handmade. Sweet Angel sewed all of the fabrics together, stitched everything up, and made it tailored not only to herself, but true to life to Akali’s design.

She even designed Akali’s signature Kana, using EVA foam so she can carry it around without too much hassle.

She added every detail to the weapon like she did the costume too, from the leather handle all the way down to the marks and blemishes on the battle-worn blade.

The cosplay is so good that even the official League of Legends account couldn’t help but react. Sweet Angel got a retweet on the cosplay from the near five million follower account, and they don’t hand those out lightly.

As for her next cosplay, Sweet Angel hasn’t revealed her plans just yet. However, she’s got a few more shoots on the way, and if they’re anything like this Akali cosplay, they’ll be worth a gander.
