K/DA has got a new look with their latest EP, “All Out,” on the horizon. The four League of Legends popstars, plus a special guest, have replaced white, purple, and gold with blue and black, and this Argentinian cosplay group has encapsulated their spirit perfectly.

K/DA are ready to make their grand return. The mega-popular League of Legends K-Pop group are just about to release their first EP, “All Out.” They’ve already debuted their pre-release single, “The Baddest,” sporting a new look from their POP/STARS days.

On the EP, the four League of Legends idols ⁠— Akali, Ahri, Evelynn, and Kai’Sa ⁠— will be joined by new popstar Seraphine. While Seraphine is new to the League universe, her voice, looks, and Twitter account has already won over the hearts of players.

With a new look comes huge amounts of inspiration for cosplay. K/DA alone is hugely popular to cosplay, but their new designs haven’t gotten much love yet.

However, an Argentinian cosplay group has gotten together to showcase the group in action, including the newest member Seraphine.

Valentina Kryp (Kai’Sa), Feli Tabby (Akali), Luchi Quinteros (Seraphine), Peyton Riley (Ahri), and Glory Lamothe (Evelynn) have really gone all out to get K/DA’s new look down pat.

No expense was spared by the group. They managed to design almost everything, from Kai’Sa’s blasters, to Evelynn’s backpiece. While there’s no Ahri tail, it doesn’t take away from how true-to-form these cosplays are.

It looks just like the promo images Riot have been putting out. With the metallic blues and blacks, down to Seraphine’s colorful hair and dress, the group are more suited for a real album photo shoot than just a cosplay one.

It’s not their first rodeo as K/DA either. The group has cosplayed the base set of skins for the pop group before. It makes it a bit easier when trying to design the new costumes, although they still had to do most of the things from scratch due to the drastic color changes.

K/DA’s first EP, All Out, is releasing on November 6. Before then, the group will be performing at Worlds 2020 in Shanghai on October 31, where Seraphine is expected to make her debut with the group.

An Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayer faithfully recreated Ty Lee’s iconic Ember Islands beach look. The talented artist hit the sands as Azula’s bubbly acrobatic friend.

There are many memorable scenes from The Last Airbender, which originally made its debut on Nickelodeon in 2005. However ‘The Beach’ story in Season 3 has alway been a fan favorite.

Cosplayer ‘daniella.claire.cosplay’ depicted the hilarious scene with her transformation into the acrobatic fighter. The artist nailed the character’s look, capturing her upbeat personality by holding her long braided hair in her hands.

Photographer ‘thegeekstrong’ took a shot of Daniella posing in front of the shore while wearing the character’s iconic white and red Fire Nation swimsuit. The outdoor backdrop truly brings the Ember Islands to life.

In another post on Instagram, the cosplayer faithfully re-created the moment from the episode where Ty Lee asks a beachgoer to stand in front of the sun to create shade for her to rest in. 

This isn’t the first time the artist has dressed up as the Avatar heroine. In September, she collaborated with cosplayer ‘minakess’ who portrays Princess Azula. Daniella wore Ty Lee’s regular pink outfit while sitting next to the series’ villain.

Despite ending in 2008, the Last Airbender has seen a major revival in popularity after Netflix added it to its platform in April. The Nickelodeon animation celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2020.

Those interested in the franchise can watch every single episode on the streaming service right now. The series sequel, The Legend of Korra, is also available, and takes place 100 years after the story of Avatar Aang.
