A Legend of Korra cosplayer brought waterbending to life with a stunning transformation into the Avatar. The artist’s epic photoset is the perfect depiction of the Nickelodeon heroine. 

In 2005, The Last Airbender made its groundbreaking debut on Nickelodeon. Its story about a monk named Aang who can control the elements of water, earth, air, and fire captivated viewers around the world.

In 2012, the series got a sequel spin-off called The Legend of Korra which focused on the new Avatar. A talented cosplayer brought the show’s fierce protagonist to life with a mind-blowing costume that will leave fans in awe.

Avatar cosplayer becomes real life Korra

The Legend of Korra takes place 100 years after Aang’s story, and focuses on his successor, Korra. The series ran from 2012 to 2014, and followed the water tribe Avatar as she tries to bring balance to a world that is quickly becoming modernized.

Cosplayer ‘hey_jude107‘ shared a true-to-life take on the heroine, and stuns with an insanely accurate costume. Photographer ‘dzetarion‘ captured the artist posing as the Avatar in front of a flowing river in the back.

HeyJude perfectly depicted Korra’s Book 4 look, trading in her long Water Tribe braided hair for a short brown bob cut. The cosplayer also mimicked her final season outfit, which includes long blue arm wraps.

In another shot posted to Instagram, the artist mirrored Korra using her Avatar powers. With Dzetarion’s incredible editing, the heroines’s waterbending was brought to life with special effects.

#Korra by me Photo and edit @dzetarion Корра – моя самая любимая девочка ! Много лет назад я посмотрела мультик "легенда об Аанге" и уже тогда он надолго запал мне в сердце, я пересматривала его множество раз, потом спустя время вышла Корра, но я долго фыркала и плевалась, что первая "часть" была вполне завершенной, не надо мне тут. В итоге начала смотреть с рассчетом, что хочу косплеить Асами (друг уговорил, он очень хотел сделать Мако). И вот я включаю мульт, вижу Корру с её безудержным характером и потрясающей мимикой и сразу же понимаю, что вот оно – моё, родное. К этому образу я возвращалась ещё не раз, и у меня с ним много оооочень приятных воспоминаний и даже забавная история про костюм! А ещё благодаря проекту по Коррасами я познакомилась с классными ребятами из Сургута и Нижневартовска. И влюбилась в девушку с которой косплеила Коррасами 😀 (для незнающих : это название пейринга корры и Асами) и вот спустя почти 5 лет я сделала фотосет о котором долгое время мечтала. На мой взгляд ничего нельзя было сделать лучше: простой сет с попаданием в образ и эмоции. Отдельная любовь @azalia_ff за вечную помощь в моих косплей-похождениях! Она и лифчик подержит, и вещи потаскает, и свет 😀 #korrasami #korracosplay #cosplay #cartoon #cartooncosplay #cartoonnetwork #lok #atla #lokcosplay #thelegendofkorra #legendofaang #legendofkorra #legendofkorracosplay #atlacosplay

The creator showed viewers how much work went into faithfully re-creating the costume. HeyJude perfectly portrayed the character’s blue sleeveless top, and included her brown and white furred Water Tribe wrap around her waist.

Ever seen a League of Legends cosplay so good that Riot can’t help but share it with the world? Well, now you have, with Sweet Angel’s take on Akali taking League players by storm.

Akali is one of League of Legends’ most popular characters to cosplay. Whether it be her default skin, or the mega-popular K/DA variant, people love to show off as the Ionian assassin.

However, few manage to grab the eyes of Riot as much as Sweet Angel. The talented Italian cosplayer decided to take on Akali as her most recent project, and while the costume looks simple, it was anything but.

Akali is one of the most popular League champions to cosplay, but few catch the eyes of Riot.

“I thought it was a simple costume, but it required a lot more attention and time than I thought,” she told fans on her website.

It took Sweet Angel about 100 hours all up to create the Akali cosplay ⁠— and you can see every bit of hard work and time that went into it. From the handmade wig, to the dress, and even Akali’s smoke bombs, Sweet Angel didn’t miss a beat.

Everything that you see was basically handmade. Sweet Angel sewed all of the fabrics together, stitched everything up, and made it tailored not only to herself, but true to life to Akali’s design.

She even designed Akali’s signature Kana, using EVA foam so she can carry it around without too much hassle.

She added every detail to the weapon like she did the costume too, from the leather handle all the way down to the marks and blemishes on the battle-worn blade.

The cosplay is so good that even the official League of Legends account couldn’t help but react. Sweet Angel got a retweet on the cosplay from the near five million follower account, and they don’t hand those out lightly.

As for her next cosplay, Sweet Angel hasn’t revealed her plans just yet. However, she’s got a few more shoots on the way, and if they’re anything like this Akali cosplay, they’ll be worth a gander.
