An Avatar cosplayer has impressed fans of the series with a unique and impressive transformation into The Last Airbender character Katara.

Released in 2005, Avatar: The Last Airbender still retains a passionate fanbase 15 years after its release. The show’s continued popularity can partly be attributed to its interesting and original characters. It’s these characters that inspire so many cosplayers to transform themselves into personalities from the show.

Katara, a waterbender in the Southern Water Tribe, is a particularly popular character from the series. Her strong and compassionate nature is loved by fans and it’s always exciting to see a cosplayer truly capture her personality in a transformation.

That’s exactly what Victoeriaecs has managed to accomplish with her lifelike portrayal of the Avatar waterbender.

Katara was a part of one of three communities that still practiced waterbending in the show.

Cosplayer Victoriaecs has succeeded in impressing fans of the show with her unbelievably lifelike portrayal of Katara. A picture of the transformation was posted to the r/cosplay subreddit and at the time of writing has over 3,000 upvotes.

It’s obvious Victoria has put in a tremendous amount of effort to put this cosplay together. From the deep blue color of her outfit to the details in her hair, she truly captures the appearance of Katara with lifelike accuracy.

The circular water effects displayed in the photo are extremely realistic, it truly looks as if she’s bending the water to her will. On top of this, the location and backdrop of the image mimic the landscape of the show and put the cherry on top of this impressive cosplay.

The addition of the water just puts the icing on the cake for this image.

It’s incredible to think that a show created 15 years ago still has such an avid following and fanbase. With cosplayers like Victoriaecs creating such faithful renditions of the characters, there is no doubt that the passionate fanbase for the series will continue to grow.


Overwatch cosplayer sprints into battle as Soldier 76 with female twist

Cosplayers are no strangers to creating unique outfits based on Overwatch heroes and Hendoart proved to be no different with her stunning female take on Soldier 76.

Soldier 76 is one of the original classic Overwatch heroes, having been around since the game’s launch. With his iconic red, white, and blue jacket, mask, plus heavy pulse rifle, Jack Morrison can easily stand out in a crowd.

That all said, cosplayer and streamer Sarah ‘Hendoart’ Hendo decided to tackle the DPS hero from her own perspective, in what she called a “mini gender bend.”

As you can see from the photos, Hendo absolutely nailed the look of Soldier 76 getting the jacket, gloves, gun, and even biotic field down pat.

Meanwhile, she also added some of her own flair. Thanks to her feminine figure, the outfit manages to take on a life of its own, especially with her flowing brown hair behind 76’s mask.

However, the best part comes in the form of a little video she created with a fellow Mercy cosplayer. In the clip, the battle-scarred Hendo begs for healing and even “spams” for it – a bit of a meme in the Overwatch community.

“Just a battle-damaged Soldier and a Mercy who dgaf about me,” she captioned the video.

Eventually, the Mercy begins to nurse Hendo back to health and starts wrapping her arm in a bandage, and evaluates the rest of the hero’s injuries.

Hendo’s cosplays aren’t limited to just Overwatch either. She has cosplayed as many different DC and Marvel superheroes including Spider-Man, Harley Quinn, Joker, Mary Jane, and Venom just to name a few.

Soldier 76 isn’t the only Overwatch cosplay she’s done either. In the past, she has done many different takes on the tank hero D.Va including her School Girl and Tangerine themed skins.

With Overwatch 2 on the way and multiple more heroes coming with the sequel, this likely isn’t the last we’ve seen from Hendoart and quite frankly, we can’t wait to see what else she has in store.
