Cloud9’s Zack ‘Sneaky’ Scuderi is more than a professional League of Legends player – he also creates impressive cosplays, as evidenced by his brilliant rendition of a popular anime character.

Sneaky debuted a stunning take on ‘DARLING in the FRANXX’s’ Zero Two on March 18, complete with the character’s bright pink hair and intricately crafted pilot suit.

His cosplay was met with widespread praise across Twitter, with Cloud9 jumping into the mix to write, “You’re so hot, brother,” in a joking response.

Even popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys complimented the costume, along with esports team Echo Fox and teammate Nisqy.

The LoL pro had polled viewers about what cosplay they’d like to see him create on March 14, with Zero Two taking the lead by a staggering amount – much to Twitch streamer Dyrus’s feigned dismay.

This is far from Sneaky’s first cosplay; he has created a slew of other costumes for characters from video games and anime, including LoL’s Soraka Star Guardian and its K/DA pop group, alongside the insanely popular ‘Bowsette’ spinoff fan character, and more.

Sneaky, PatreonSneaky has created a slew of previous cosplays, including the likes of characters from video games an anime.

According to Sneaky, he picked up cosplaying as a hobby, and created a Patreon to produce more outfits after seeing the positive reactions to his costumes, which he sometimes wears during live streams.

Sneaky doesn’t limit his cosplay experience to the online world, either – the gaming pro also takes his outfits to anime conventions like Anime Expo, which he vlogged for Cloud9’s YouTube channel in July 2018.

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.
