A talented Avatar: The Last Airbender fan has transformed into Suki from the ultra-popular show, bringing the leader of the Kyoshi Warriors to life with her stunning take on the character. 

The Last Airbender originally aired back in 2005, but erupted into the public consciousness in 2020 when Netflix added the Nickelodeon cartoon to their streaming platform, giving old fans a chance to relive the incredible journey of Aang, while creating thousands and thousands of new fans who tuned into the story of the elemental benders for the first time.

It’s no surprise then that many have decided to cosplay as their favorite Avatar characters this year, with one fan bringing the fierce and tough warrior Suki to life with a cosplay that looks like it was lifted directly out of the show and transported into real life.

Suki is a dangerous and skilled combatant.

Suki is introduced in the first season of The Last Airbender when Aang and his ragtag group of friends travel to Kyoshi Island in the Earth Kingdom and meet the heroine who captains an army of females to protect their sacred land.

When in battle, Kyoshi wears special makeup and armor, but after being captured in enemy territory during the third season of the show, Suki is forced to wear Fire Nation clothes, a look which ‘jessblazecosplay‘ captures perfectly.

Jess’ Fire Nation recreation is absolutely perfect, featuring everything from the detailed neckline on her costume, to her red and maroon arm and wrist bands. She even styled her hair perfectly, although Jess admits that the wig she uses looks more blonde than brunette in the lighting she used to take the snaps. Despite this, her Suki look is still awesome, and definitely one of the best Suki looks we’ve seen.

If this has given you the urge to watch Avatar: The Last Airbender, then you’re in luck. Netflix added every season to its lineup back in May, so you can binge Aang’s adventures to your heart’s content.

Netflix has also announced that it will be creating a live-action version of the show, although we haven’t received an official release date just yet.

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.
