An Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayer brought the show to life with a mind-blowing Katara recreation. The talented artist’s stunning costume will leave fans of the Nickelodeon animation in awe.

Avatar: The Last Airbender made its groundbreaking debut on Nickelodeon in 2005. However in 2020, the series saw a massive revival in popularity after Netflix added it to its service in March.

A talented cosplayer transformed into one of the show’s most popular characters Katara. Her insanely accurate portrayal of the waterbender is brought to life by some stunning photography.

The popular animation begins with siblings Katara and Sokka discovering Avatar Aang trapped in ice. The Southern Water Tribe siblings free the airbender monk after he had been frozen for over 100 years.

Cosplayer ‘DiGi Rin’ brought the waterbending heroine to life after sharing her transformation into the Nickelodeon character on Instagram. The artist mirrored Katara’s fighting stance from the show in the social media post.

Photographer ‘Don Dulce‘ perfectly captured Digi in a gorgeous photo with water in the background. The outdoor shot truly brings the series to life, as it really feels like the cosplayer is about to waterbend.

In another picture, the artist mimics one of Katara’s famous waterbending stances from the story. The epic picture could easily be mistaken for a live-action film version of The Last Airbender.

Digi gave viewers a greater look at her costume, this time captured by ‘conmomphotography‘. The artist absolutely nailed Katara’s look, from her iconic hair loops, to her blue and white Southern Water Tribe attire. This is easily one of the best Avatar cosplays we’ve ever seen.

League of Legends cosplayer blooms like a flower as Spirit Blossom Ahri

Spirit Blossom Ahri is one of the most vibrant champion and skin combinations in League of Legends, but rather than trying to imagine how awesome she’d look in the real world, a cosplayer named Faid Eyren made it happen.

League of Legends characters all have a unique look and vibe. However, it’s hard to name one more fascinating than Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox. She is a part of an animal-like race called Vastaya. They descended from enlightened mortals that harnessed power from the spirit realm.

Ahri has that power too. Her abilities revolve around reshaping magic into orbs of raw energy. She’s also technically a Nine-Tailed Fox, with nine tails flaring out from her backside.

Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox, has one of the best-looking character models in the game.

Ahri’s default skin looks fantastic. However, Spirit Blossom Ahri looks even better. It has a more floral and mystical appearance, complete with pink hair, bright blue tails, and a majestic white and pink kimono.

Faid Eyren is a brilliant cosplayer from Ukraine. In the past, she’s dressed up as everything from Demon Slayer’s Shinobu Kocho to Sword Art’s Asuna Yuuki. Now, she’s brought Spirit Blossom Ahri to life.

“Every spirit forgets itself eventually, but I’m always on their horizon,” she said. “Finally, I’m happy to show you the result of our collaboration with @cosplaysky! I fell in love with this amazing costume immediately! It’s not just super beautiful, but very convenient to wear. It fits perfectly!”

The costume, which was designed and tailor-made by cosplaysky, is stunning from head to toe. But there’s no denying that Faid Eyren wore it well and made it look like the real deal. 

Let’s not forget about ears from lulu_cosplayer and the photography edits from gaerwen_art, either, which rounded it off nicely.

It’s hard to pull off Spirit Blossom Ahri since it’s one of the most majestic-looking skins in the game. However, Faid Eyren nailed it, and the overwhelming support and praise from her fans prove it.
