A Legend of Korra cosplayer went viral after bringing the Avatar’s waterbending to life. The artist’s insanely accurate take is so good, it’s almost as if the heroine as punched her way out of the screen.

The Legend of Korra made its debut in 2012, and continued the story of Nickelodeon’s wildly successful animation The Last Airbender. The tale follows the next Avatar after Aang.

The Legend of Korra is the sequel to The Last Airbender.

Avatar cosplayer becomes the real life Korra

The Last Airbender sequel focuses on the era of Avatar Korra, who has to lead the world left to her by Aang. The animation ran from 2012 to 2014 for a total of four seasons.

Cosplayer ‘umineko_cosplay‘ transformed into the character on Instagram, and wowed with an accurate costume. Photographer ‘mirioroku‘ captured the artist as she mirrored the heroine’s pose from the show.

Umineko absolutely nailed Korra’s look, perfectly re-creating her brown Water Tribe hairstyle which includes two braids that frame her face, as well as her flowing bangs.

In another shot taken by ‘yisasbc‘, the cosplayer creatively brought Korra’s waterbending to life using clever editing. In the series, the heroine uses water to heal, as well as soothe the spirits.

The artist also re-enacted the protagonist going into the Avatar State, putting her two fist together as she sits on the floor. Using special effects, the four elements of earth, water, air, and fire swirl around her as her eyes glow.

While The Legend of Korra focuses mainly on new characters, the show continues important storylines established in The Last Airbender. Fans even get to see adult versions of Aang, Katara, Sokka, Zuko, and Toph.

If you are an Avatar fan but have never seen the sequel, you are in luck. In August, streaming service Netflix added all four seasons to its platform, and you can watch it right now.

Zelina Vega has been rocking the world with her cosplays lately. Today, she cosplayed Jinx from League of Legends live on stream, and it was one of the best we’ve seen.

Zelina Vega is best known as a professional wrestler in the WWE. But in her free time, Thea Trinidad, which is her real name, loves to game, stream, and cosplay her favorite characters.

She has cosplayed everything from D.VA and Sombra from Overwatch to Loba from Apex Legends in this year alone. Now, Zelina Vega has added yet another popular character to her impressive list: Jinx, from League of Legends.

Zelina Vega nailed the outfit

Zelina Vega matched Jinx’s blue hair and long, braided pigtails, as well as the make-up and outfit. But the best part is, she donned it live on her Twitch channel while playing Among Us with her subscribers.

Jinx, nicknamed “the loose cannon,” is described as “a manic and impulsive criminal from Zaun, Jinx lives to wreak havoc without care for the consequences.”

It sounds eerily close to Zelina Vega as a character, who is known for being a callous and calculated “heel” in the WWE Universe.

Recently, her character was found guilty of poisoning Montez Ford, another pro wrestler who is a member of the Street Profits, and she didn’t seem to mind.

Of course, cosplaying is huge in the League of Legends community. Impressive ones are popping up every week. Still, it’s nice to see one from Zelina Vega herself, who is quickly cementing her place as the cosplay queen.
