Vielma, 22, was an employee at Hogwarts Castle at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Islands of Adventure. The Pop! figurine shows Vielma in his Gryffindor-House work attire, nametag and all.
The figure's creator, Brandon Anderson of Colorado Springs, Colorado, told the Huffington Post
he didn't know Vielma personally, but made the figurine after reading a post suggesting it on a Funk Pop! Facebook page.
The figurine was made as a tribute to Vielma's friends and family, and will not be sold to the public.
MuggleNet.com's Facebook post
says "You get to be a wizard, Luis."
Luis Vielma, one of the 49 victims of the Pulse shooting, has been memorialized with a Funko Pop! wizard figurine in his likeness.
