An Avatar: The Last Airbender shared their incredible transformation into Azula. The makeup artist’s stunning skills bring the Fire Nation princess to life like you’ve never seen before. 

The Last Airbender made its groundbreaking debut on Nickelodeon in 2005. Viewers from around the world fell in love with its story about a monk named Aang who, as the Avatar, can control the elements of Water, Earth, Air, and Fire.

Bringing the show’s lead villain to reality, a talented makeup artist became the perfect Azula with her jaw-dropping cosplay. The artist looks so much like the princess, it’s almost as if the character has burned her way out of the screen.

Throughout The Last Airbender, Azula ruthlessly hunts down Avatar Aang and his friends. The maniacal Fire Nation royalty wants to kill the protagonist and secure her seat next to her father, Lord Ozai. The terrifying firebender is so powerful, her flames burn blue, making her an absolute threat.

Makeup artist ‘vic_maddox‘ shared her electrifying take on the villain, transforming into her with incredible accuracy. The cosplayer nailed the princess’ signature look, mirroring her bun hair style and parted bangs which frame her face. She also captured the royalty’s dark red lips piercing stare.

In the story, Azula can also channel her cold rage into lightning, which Victoria creatively represented by running it down the side of her face and across her eye. Tying the whole thing together, she truly becomes the Avatar villain by wearing her Fire Nation royal crest on the top of her head.

The talented artist also used her skills to portray Azula’s brother Zuko. Using makeup, she perfectly depicted the banished prince’s iconic scar which hangs over his left eye. In the plot, his father gives him the burn mark after speaking out against him.

Despite ending in 2008, The Last Airbender has continued to grow in popularity. The groundbreaking animation saw a revival in 2020 after Netflix added it to his platform in May.

The streaming service also plans to bring Aang’s story to life in the form of a live action drama. For everything we know about the project, check out our guide here.

Spirit Blossom Ahri is one of the most vibrant champion and skin combinations in League of Legends, but rather than trying to imagine how awesome she’d look in the real world, a cosplayer named Faid Eyren made it happen.

League of Legends characters all have a unique look and vibe. However, it’s hard to name one more fascinating than Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox. She is a part of an animal-like race called Vastaya. They descended from enlightened mortals that harnessed power from the spirit realm.

Ahri has that power too. Her abilities revolve around reshaping magic into orbs of raw energy. She’s also technically a Nine-Tailed Fox, with nine tails flaring out from her backside.

Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox, has one of the best-looking character models in the game.

Ahri’s default skin looks fantastic. However, Spirit Blossom Ahri looks even better. It has a more floral and mystical appearance, complete with pink hair, bright blue tails, and a majestic white and pink kimono.

Faid Eyren is a brilliant cosplayer from Ukraine. In the past, she’s dressed up as everything from Demon Slayer’s Shinobu Kocho to Sword Art’s Asuna Yuuki. Now, she’s brought Spirit Blossom Ahri to life.

“Every spirit forgets itself eventually, but I’m always on their horizon,” she said. “Finally, I’m happy to show you the result of our collaboration with @cosplaysky! I fell in love with this amazing costume immediately! It’s not just super beautiful, but very convenient to wear. It fits perfectly!”

The costume, which was designed and tailor-made by cosplaysky, is stunning from head to toe. But there’s no denying that Faid Eyren wore it well and made it look like the real deal. 

Let’s not forget about ears from lulu_cosplayer and the photography edits from gaerwen_art, either, which rounded it off nicely.

It’s hard to pull off Spirit Blossom Ahri since it’s one of the most majestic-looking skins in the game. However, Faid Eyren nailed it, and the overwhelming support and praise from her fans prove it.
