A talented Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayer shared her fiery transformation into Zuko. The artist’s unique take gives the Fire Nation prince a creative female twist that will have fans feeling the heat.

The Last Airbender made its groundbreaking debut on Nickelodeon in 2005, and has since gone on to become a cultural phenomenon. Viewers around the world connected with its story about a monk name Aang who, as the Avatar, can control the elements of Earth, Water, Air, and Fire.

On his quest to bring balance to the world, the lovable protagonist is hunted down by the Fire Nation’s prince Zuko. A talented cosplayer captured the popular character with her unique cosplay that gives the firebender a female spin.

In the show, Zuko is the banished prince from the Fire Nation. The troubled royalty embarks on a quest to capture the Avatar, believing he will regain his honor from his country if he succeeds. However, the character goes through many transformations throughout the story, and is beloved by fans.

Cosplayer ‘Crystalcat‘ showed off her take on the Avatar hero, giving him an incredible female spin. Using clever editing, the artist wields flames in her hands to mimic the prince’s fiery bending skills.

Crystalcat nails Zuko’s look, perfectly capturing his iconic burn mark, which he tragically sports over his left eye. In the story, he receives the scar from his father, Lord Ozai, after speaking out against him. The damage to his face is a painful reminder of his past.

The cosplayer mirrors his messy black hair, even including his parted bangs, which hang over the middle of his forehead. The cosplay incredibly incorporates both Zuko and his sister princess Azula, making this one of the best Avatar costumes we’ve ever seen.

The Last Airbender has continued to grow in popularity over the years, even getting a sequel spinoff series called The Legend of Korra in 2012. Those wanting to revisit the animation are in luck, because Netflix has just added it to their lineup.

The streaming giant also plans to bring Aang’s story to life with a live-action adaptation. The project is even being helmed by Avatar creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. For everything we know about it so far, 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.
