A talented cosplayer shared her jawdropping take on the protagonist from Avatar: The Last Airbender's sequel spin-off The Legend of Korra, and it bends the elements in the best way.

The Last Airbender originally aired on Nickelodeon in 2005, and came to an end three years later. The animation became a cultural phenomenon, as its story about a world where people can bend the elements connected with millions.

After the show came to an epic close, fans got an epic sequel in 2012 called the The Legend of Korra, which followed the new Avatar named Korra 70 years after the original story.

A cosplayer shared her insanely accurate recreation of the element-bending heroine, and brought the animation character to life with her stunning photography.

The sequel to The Last Airbender aired in 2012.

Avatar Korra brought to life

In the lore of the series, the Avatar is reincarnated after death and is passed on to the next element, so after Aang from The Last Airbender, the sequel focused on Korra from the Water Tribe.

Cosplayer 'nishi.artist' shared her take on the beloved heroine on her Instagram, and focused on the character's look from Book 2: Spirits, which sees the Avatar visiting the Southern Water Tribe for the winter solstice

Due to the cold weather, Korra wears a parka style version of her outfit, which the cosplayer accurately captures in her photograph that she posed for in the snow, while also holding a cute air-bison plush.

The Russian-based cosplayer continued to impress fans with her incredible photographs, as she posted another one showing her posing outside in the elements, giving us a full shot of her costume.

She intricately recreated the animation character's outfit, from the white fur around her neck and shoulders, to the long sleeves that wrap around her hand, which becomes a staple to the Avatar's season 2 look.

Even more impressive, is that Nishi added the two scratches on her right cheek, as Korra receives the wound later in the season, and it stays with her for the rest of the story.

The Legend of Korra ended up running for four seasons, and came to an end in 2014 just two years after it originally aired. While the show had a rocky production, the show further extended the lore for years to come.

Fans of the Avatar universe have a lot to be excited for, as Netflix announced in 2019 that they will be bringing the beloved show back in the form of a live-action drama starting in 2020, and managed to get the series creators on board as well.
