An Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayer went viral when she transformed herself into the real-life version of Katara. The artist showed off an insanely accurate re-creation of the waterbender in a Tik-Tok video.
The Last Airbender made its groundbreaking debut in 2005, and captivated viewers from around the world. The series is about a monk named Aang who, as the Avatar, can control the elements of Water, Earth, Air, and Fire.
A talented artist shared her true-to-life costume of popular character Katara. The cosplayer’s faithful portrayal of the waterbender will be sure to wow fans, as she re-creates the heroine’s iconic Fire Nation look from Book 3.

Cosplayer ‘hollowqxween‘ shared her side-by shot re-creation of the character’s alternate outfit on Instagram. In Book 3, the lovable protagonists go behind enemy lines, and dress up in Fire Nation attire to go undetected.
Perfectly mirroring Katara’s stance from the show, Hollowqxqeen truly becomes the real-life version of the waterbender. She absolutely nails the Avatar heroine’s signature look, including her bun hairstyle and wrapped top and skirt.

I remember the first time coming home from school when they aired the last airbender and I went from being a little girl who laughed at all of sokka’s corny jokes, appreciated the beauty of world building, wanted momo and appa as companions, to being an adult, who has rewatched it for the fifth time thanks to Netflix. And this time I realized even more how beautifully written this show is. The character writing is truly inspiring, the history behind spiritual aspects and war, I was truly blown away again and def shed a tear on the last episode as I had to say goodbye to the adventures. Thank you the last air bender for this amazing art and journey. This will forever be my favorite show and a have a special place in my heart ❤️ #thelastairbender #katara #kataracosplay #avatarthelastairbender #avatar #atla #cosplay #cosplaygirl #cosplayersofinstagram #cosplayphotography #sidebyside #cosplayway #cosplaysky
The cosplayer shared more photos of her work, including a closeup which gives us a glimpse of how detailed her costume truly is. Not only does she capture Katara’s striking blue eyes, she also faithfully depicts her facial expressions from the animation.
As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the artist also cleverly re-made the intro to the series on TikTok. The video shows her cosplay in action, while also lip-syncing Katara’s narration.
