Twitch streamer Neekolul has delighted fans of her’s and the anime My Hero Academia by cosplaying as character Shoto Todoroki’s ‘older sister,’ putting an awesome feminine twist on the original character design.

Neekolul found popularity on Twitch in 2017, amassing a follower base of over 250,000 by playing games such as Dead by Daylight and League of Legends. She also went viral on TikTok in March with a video of her dancing to the Senzawa song “Oki Doki Boomer.”

With her adorable personality, she regularly posts videos on the app of her trying out different looks and dancing along to popular songs, her videos scoring hundreds of thousands of views.

She seems the perfect candidate for a personality-filled anime cosplay, and did just that by putting her own spin on Todoroki from My Hero Academia.

Todoroki is a stand out character thanks to his half-red half-white hair, mimicking his half-hot half-cold Quirk. A student at U.A High, he is training to become a Pro Hero, and is one of the main protagonists in the series.

Neekolul has flipped Todoroki on his head, however, by swapping his boxy school uniform for a uniform-esque green skater skirt, a white shirt with the sleeves rolled up and a bold red tie.

The thigh-high socks and jacket wrapped around her waist tie the youthful school look in together, keeping with Todoroki’s original aesthetic but giving it a cute spin that has fans stunned.

And of course, Neekolul has kept that iconic red and white hair, but instead of Todoroki’s cropped cut, her locks hang in long pigtails. The bold red of the hair and her tie really make the pink of her eyeshadow and blush pop, looking even more like she’s stepped right out of an anime.

In the video itself, she dances to a throwback TikTok song “Mia Khalifa” by iLOVEFRiDAY, a song that soared in popularity on the app in 2018, making it the perfect MHA TikTok crossover with a boost of nostalgia for those who frequented the app at the time the song was at its peak.

The perfect cosplay has gained 14,000 likes and 110,000 views in the 22 hours since it was posted, and no doubt there’ll be more people flocking to her page to see her amazing take on a classic My Hero Academia character.

Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayer masters waterbending as Katara

Avatar: The Last Airbender has many characters that fans wish existed in real life, but one cosplayer took matters into her own hands and became Katara herself with a mind-blowing cosplay.

Katara is one of the most beloved characters in Avatar: The Last Airbender. Fans are drawn to her kind and compassionate personality and the fact she’s more mature than the others. 

It’s no surprise, then, that she often acts as the mother of the group. Katara is the cornerstone that others fall back on throughout their trials and tribulations, and she always knows the right thing to say.

However, Katara is more than a typical matriarchal archetype.

She undergoes an incredible transformation as the series progresses. She learns and grows as a person, but she also masters water-bending and becomes one of the strongest characters in the show.

Still, despite all that, and despite being tested and pushed to the edge herself, she never loses sight of who she is. Katara remains true to herself, and the characteristics that define her never fade.

Unfortunately, words aren’t always enough to convince people how awesome a character is. Sometimes you need to see it to believe it.

That’s exactly what a popular cosplayer named lux_lisa_ has done. She teamed up with s.photography_b and together, they brought Katara to life in the real world — let’s just say, the results were absolutely stunning.

Lux_lisa_ looks perfect from head to toe. Everything from the hair, the eyes, the outfit, the wrist-guards, and the pose is spot on. The photography is top-notch too. However, what makes this cosplay all-the-more special is the wonderful water-bending effect.

It’s hard to believe since it looks so good, but s.photography_b claims it wasn’t photoshopped at all. Instead, it was made possible thanks to a little help from some friends.

Two of them synchronized throwing buckets of water, while lux_lisa_ posed to her heart’s desire and s.photography_b snapped shot after shot. It was an awesome team effort and one that would make Team Avatar proud.

The cosplay and effect combination looks even more impressive in a second shot. It even includes what looks like an ice-cave in the background.

Katara is one of the most popular characters in Avatar: The Last Airbender. Naturally, that means cosplays pop up left, right, and center and they’re all brilliant in their own right.

However, it’s hard to find one that captures the art of water-bending so elegantly. And it’s even harder to find one that does so without adding an after-effect on photoshop.

Still, as awesome as the effect is, let’s not take away from the fact that lux_lisa_ wore the outfit to perfection. At the end of the day, cosplays are more about the outfits themselves, and Lisa’s certainly was incredible!
