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.

Attack on Titan Season 4 is just around the corner, and a talented fan of the show has shown off their incredible take on the Survey Corps’ Mikasa Ackerman, bringing the character to life in stunning detail.

Since its debut back in 2013, fans across the globe have been enamored with the story of Eren Yeager and Mikasa, who become refugees when one of the giant humanoid creatures known as Titans breached the walls that protected humanity and killed Eren’s mother.

Determined to destroy the creatures who killed his family, Eren vowed to join the Scout Regiment and head out beyond the walls to kill every Titan he saw, and free humanity from the threat for good. Mikasa, who made a vow as a child to protect him always after he saved her life, quickly followed him, and the inseparable pair joined the war together.

Talented with a sword in her hand, and an expert at swinging through towns or forests using her ODM gear, Mikasa is one of the most feared and dangerous members of the Scouts. Despite her personality sometimes leading others to think she is cold or standoffish, Mikasa is a true fan-favorite, thanks to her incredible skill and her undying love for Eren. She’s so popular in fact, that she has become the most cosplayed character from the series.

Mikasa is one of the most powerful characters in the popular anime.

Cosplayer ‘jeisuzukii‘ brought the character to life in stunning detail, capturing the Scout’s black hair perfectly, and making sure to wear the iconic red scarf that she is rarely seen without, and has become a staple of any good Mikasa cosplay.

She is also wearing the recognizable brown leather jacket that anyone who is part of the Survey Corps wears, complete with the Scouts’ recognizable logo, a pair of white and blue wings known as the ‘Wings of Freedom,’ a symbol of hope that they make escape the tyranny of the Titans.

The cosplay is truly stunning and looks like it was lifted straight out of the anime. If a live-action Attack on Titan was ever commissioned, it would be no surprise if it looked exactly like this.

Attack on Titan’s third season ended with a blockbuster revelation about the origin of the Titans and the war that the Scouts have waged for hundreds of years, leaving fans desperately waiting for the final season of the show.

The good news is that the fourth season of the anime is still set in fall 2020, with the teaser trailer released in late May.
