A talented Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayer shared her insanely accurate Toph Beifong costume. The feisty Nickelodeon heroine was brought to life by the artist’s faithful depiction of the Earthbender. 

The Last Airbender originally aired on Nickelodeon in 2005 and ran for three seasons. The animation was groundbreaking for the kids network and became a cultural phenomena.

A cosplay artist brought one of the show’s most popular characters, Toph Beifong, to life. Her incredibly detailed take on the Avatar master will make you think Earthbending is real.

The story follows a monk named Aang who, as the Avatar, is tasked with learning the four elements of Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. On his quest, he meets Toph who becomes his Earthbending teacher.

Cosplayer Amy ‘sorel_amy’ transformed into Beifong with her true-to-life-costume. The artist posed in the character’s Earth kingdom attire, and was captured by photographer ‘poor_juli‘ bending rocks.

Amy absolutely nailed her depiction of Toph’s look, creating her short black hair which is tied up with a yellow and green hairband. The picture’s gorgeous rock mountain backdrop ties it all together, and it could easily be a scene from the show.

The artist posted more photos of her take on the Avatar character on social media. In another shot taken by ‘dashaocean,’ she hilariously recreated a scene directly from the animation where Toph proudly holds up her wanted poster.

In Book 3 of the series, Aang his group have to go undercover in enemy territory and are wanted by authorities. The cosplayer created the heroine’s Fire Nation look with her red outfit, and gold hair piece.

The Russian-based artist even had a costume made for Toph’s second season design, when the protagonist first meets her as the daughter of the Beifong estate. She perfectly captures the blind character’s flowing white and green trimmed dress, while wearing her signature flower headband.

The Last Airbender recently had its 15th anniversary in February. To celebrate, Nickelodeon re-released the entire show on Blu-Ray in a collector’s edition box set.

Fans of the series have a lot to be excited for, as Netflix is bringing back the beloved animation as a live action drama. For everything we know so far about it, 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.
