As we approach the 15th anniversary for the beloved Nickelodeon animation Avatar: The Last Airbender, an insanely talented cosplayer wowed fans with her jaw dropping take on Katara.

The Last Airbender was a monumental show for Nickelodeon when it aired back in 2005, as the show’s kid-protagonist monk named Aang is thrust into an epic journey with mature themes.

Based on a world where people bend the elements of earth, water, air, and fire, the Avatar is meant to bring balance to everything, as they are the only person that can control all four.

A talented cosplayer shared her incredible take on Katara – one of the shows main heroes that accompanies Aang on his quest to master the elements and become the leader everyone needs.

Nickelodeon The water bending character, was a main hero in the series.

Katara brought to life

Katra is one of the main heroes on the show, as she and her brother Sokka are the ones to discover the Avatar trapped in ice at the very beginning of the series.

Cosplayer ‘nishi.artist‘ shared her costume of the heroine on her Instagram, and wowed fans by bringing the character to life with her insane photography that shows her bending water drops.

Not only does she perfectly recreate her water-tribe garb from her mittens, to the the white fur around her neck and sleeves, but she also nails the character’s signature hair style – particularly her loops.

As if that wasn’t enough, she shared further pictures taken by ‘kmitenkova‘ that utilize special effects that shows her recreating a scene from the animation where Katara is beautifully bending water around her.

Throughout the story, the character is also learning to master her bending skills, as she is initially told she can only be a “healer” because of the gender role in her tribe.

However, the character eventually becomes a master of controlling the element, and eventually becomes Aang’s teacher, which Nishi has perfectly captured with her stunning photo.

Netflix announced this year that they will be bringing back Avatar 15 years after it ended, and will be reimagining the show in a live-action format, even bringing on the series’ creators.

Fans can also get their hands on a re-release of the series, with a steelbook Blu-Ray collectors edition, although they are only making 20,000 of them so they are sure to go fast.

Avatar: The Last Airbender fans love Toph for her tomboyish vibe despite being raised like a princess, but a brilliant cosplayer managed to capture her elegant side by creating a refined version of her usual outfit.

The heroes in Avatar: The Last Airbender all bring something unique to the table. However, Toph is particularly remarkable because she managed to become an earth-bending master despite being blind since birth.

Initially, she wanted to prove to her parents that blindness didn’t make her weak. But she became one of the most powerful characters in the show and a valuable Team Avatar member.

Toph Beifong turned her back on a sheltered childhood to become a powerful earth-bender.

Toph is a popular choice among cosplayers too. But while we’ve seen everything from her traditional get-up to an elegant dress she once wore, it’s hard to find one more unique than Emma J.I.Q Rubini’s Art Nouveau Toph.

“You see nothing once, and you’ve seen it a thousand times,” she said, referring to a quote. “Y’all remember when we used to have cons? I’m so happy I went to Katsucon this year since it ended up being the only one I went to.”

“Here’s the cosplay I made for it,” she added. “Art Nouveau Toph! I am incredibly proud of the work I put into it, and I’m happy I got to wear it to such a pretty con! One day maybe I’ll wear it again.”

Emma managed to capture all the crucial elements of Toph’s everyday outfit. It includes the green and beige garments, the hairstyle tucked under a headband with a flower, and of course, contact lenses to match her eyes.

However, she’s added some exotic details in line with a style known as Art Nouveau. It combines elegantly woven tapestries with encrusted jewels and other bits and pieces to add some class.

Cosplayers and their fans know how much time and effort it takes to re-create an outfit faithfully. However, it takes creativity, talent, and courage to add your flair. Emma nailed it, and the thousands of likes she’s getting are a testament to that.
