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.

A Resident Evil Village cosplayer shared her mind-blowing true-to-life take on Alcina Dimitrescu. The talented artist brought the viral tall vampire lady to life with an insanely accurate costume.

Ever since her reveal in January 2021, the internet can’t get enough of the “tall vampire lady” that starred in Resident Evil Village’s trailer. Despite being the villain of the upcoming PlayStation 5 title, fans can’t get enough of the towering antagonist.

A cosplayer celebrated Alcina Dimitrescu by transforming into her with an incredibly detailed outfit. The artist’s perfect recreation is so accurate, it’s almost as if the terrifying character has walked right out of the screen and into real life.

Alcina’s explosion in popularity not only took many players by surprise, but Capcom itself was caught off guard by the internet’s obsession over the new villain. I mean, what’s not to love? The incredibly fierce antagonist has a unique design and looks badass the first time her towering height is revealed.

Prolific cosplayer Galina ‘rgtcandy‘ Zhukovskaya made waves on Instagram after sharing her faithful costume of the vampire on February 15. The artist perfectly recreated the antagonist’s iconic white silk pleated dress, as well as her signature large hat which hangs over her eyes.

Photographer Victoria ‘milliganvick‘ not only captured Galina as she posed as Dimitrescu but also helped the artist mirror Alcina’s look by meticulously applying makeup. This is easily one of the best portrayals of the tall vampire lady we have ever seen and it will be sure to capture fans’ hearts.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the talented duo also portrayed an iconic scene from the demo where Alcina emerges from a locked door and grabs Ethan. The 1:1 re-creation is chilling to say the least, as it brings the game to life like never before.

Resident Evil Village will make its debut on next-gen consoles and PC on May 7, 2021. The new entry in the popular survival-horror franchise will be the eighth in the series and will continue the design of 7 by using a first-person point of view.

While fans can’t seem to get enough of vampire Alcina Dimitrescu right now, it may be a different tune once the terrifying villain is chasing players down during the title’s epic story. One thing is for certain, though – the towering antagonist is already an icon in the genre.
