With Avatar: The Last Airbender getting released on Netflix, fans of the classic Nickelodeon franchise are coming out of the woodwork to celebrate their favorite childhood cartoon — and cosplayer ‘uniquesora’ is one of them.

The Legend of Korra is a sequel series to The Last Airbender, picking up 70 years after the events of the first show.

As hinted by its title, The Legend of Korra follows the next Avatar, Korra, who originates from the Southern Water Tribe — a character that quickly became a favorite among fans of the series for her unique design and charming moxie.

Although The Legend of Korra was met with mixed reviews among fans, cosplayer ‘uniquesora’ showed her love for the series with a breathtaking cosplay of the show’s titular character.

Cosplayer and Avatar fan ‘uniquesora’ used the opportunity of the original show’s induction to Netflix to show off her own take on Korra’s design from Book 4, and it’s safe to say that she nailed it.

Uploading a side-by-side comparison to Instagram, it’s easy to see the level of detail that was put into Sora’s cosplay, with everything from Korra’s fur-lined shawl wrapped around her waist to the emblem on its front.

Even Korra’s short hair was perfectly styled, as is her signature, athletic-looking top and blue sleeves.

However, it’s Sora’s unique look that truly brings the character to life, giving the camera a stern look that belies Korra’s fierce personality. It was as if she was ripped from the television screen and dropped right into the real world!

“Honestly, this cosplay means so much to me, and is one of my favorite cosplays to do, ever,” Sora said of her costume. “I love Korra as a character, and even though the show may not be some people’s favorite, I really felt it end strong in the last two season!”

This isn’t the only Avatar character she’s put her talents into recreating, either; Sora also showed off The Last Airbender’s Korra in her Firebender outfit, providing a stunningly accurate take on a unique moment from the beloved show.

Having cosplayed a slew of characters from multiple cartoons, anime and video games, Sora is a popular cosplaying personality for a reason, and we can’t wait to see what she’ll come up with next.

Demon Slayer cosplayer transforms into beautiful butterfly Shinobu Kocho

Shinobu Kocho might look innocent from afar, but if you’re a demon and you get too close, you’ll see the deadly side of the butterfly. She’s a popular Demon Slayer character to cosplay, but ‘aka_purin’ has truly put together one of the most beautiful designs yet.

Shinobu Kocho is a fan-favorite in Demon Slayer, and it’s easy to see why. Not only does the Demon Corps member possess incredible powers to heal friends and harm demons, but she is one of the most beautiful characters in the show.

Her personality is a difficult one to channel though. While she’s seemingly innocent on the outside, deep inside of her, there’s a rebellious rage to get revenge.

Shinobu Kocho is a dazzling and powerful Demon Slayer.

It’s one thing to make a cosplay, put it on, and take a picture. It’s another thing to really channel what a character is all about, and that’s what sets ‘aka_purin’ apart from the other Shinobu cosplayers.

Sharing the intricate design on her Twitter, the Polish cosplayer spared no expense and left no stone unturned in her flawless design. Her hair and makeup is perfect, even getting the butterflies pinned.

She also created her special katana, which is based on an insect’s “stinger” more than a blade itself. The tattered, battle-worn hilt and blade is a wonderful addition to the cosplay that really ties it all together.

That’s the special thing about purin’s cosplay too. Every element just ties everything together. While even just one of these things would be pretty special in a cosplay, being able to jam it all in one photo is the most beautiful thing of all.

The Shinobu design might be her latest, but she’s unsure on what her next project will be. “I feel like I’m having an art block lately. I just have so many ideas and costumes to shoot but I just can’t put myself up for it,” she admitted on her Instagram.

No matter what it is though, we bet Purin will knock our socks off.
