An Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayer went viral after bringing princess Azula to life with an insanely accurate costume. The artist’s faithful re-creation of the Firebender will have fans feeling the heat.

The groundbreaking animation made its debut on Nickelodeon in 2005, and became a smash hit for the network. The series’ mature themes and epic story about a monk that can bend the elements of Earth, Water, Air, and Fire connected with viewers.

A skilled cosplayer transformed herself in the show’s most popular and devious antagonist Azula. The Fire Nation princess has never looked so menacing, as the artist uses special effects to bring the character’s terrifying powers to life.

The Last Airbender made its debut in 2005, and has become a cultural phenomena.

Azula is without a doubt the most menacing villain on the show. The Fire Nation royalty relentlessly hunts down Avatar Aang and his group. She is so powerful that her flames burn blue, and she can control lightning.

Cosplayer Julia ‘neononii’ shared her true-to-life costume of the character on social media. Photographer ‘emberkana’ perfectly captured her posing as the Avatar villain, and it’s so good, it looks as if the princess has torn her way out of the screen.

Neononii absolutely nailed the character’s look, re-creating her signature parted hairstyle. She even used a Fire Nation royal hair piece prop to hold her bun in place, perfecting the faithful depiction.

In another photo, Julia turns up the heat by striking Azula’s Firebending pose. Using special effects, embers fly above her head as the cosplayer wields the villain’s dangerous blue flame.

In the show, very few characters are able to use lightning.  The Fire Nation Princess becomes a real threat as she’s able to control the element at will. The incredibly talented cosplay artist channels the character’s rage with this mind-bending photo.

The future of The Last Airbender is looking bright as Netflix announced in 2018 that they are re-making the beloved animation into a live-action drama. Series creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko are even going to helm the project.

Those looking to relive the epic journey can watch the entire show on the popular streaming service right now. For everything we know so far about the future re-imagining of Avatar, check out our guide here.

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
