An Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayer went viral after sharing a jaw-dropping transformation into Toph Beifong. The artist’s perfect depiction of the earthbender will leave fans stunned.

Avatar: The Last Airbender made its television debut on Nickelodeon in 2005, and became a cultural hit. In 2020, the series has seen a revival in popularity after Netflix added it to its service in April.

Celebrating the beloved franchise, a talented cosplayer brought one of the show’s most popular protagonists, Toph Beifong, to life. She looks so much like the character, it’s almost as if the heroine has smashed her way out of the screen.

Avatar cosplayer goes viral as perfect Toph Beifong

Toph made her debut in Book Two of the show, and is a blind earthbender that becomes Avatar Aang’s teacher. The popular heroine is one of the most powerful characters in the show, as she uses sound and touch to amplify her powers.

Bringing her to life, cosplayer ‘Le’Atlass‘ shared an insanely detailed costume of the heroine on Instagram. The artist re-created the character’s season two look when she is first introduced as the daughter of the Beifong estate in Gaoling City.

Atlass perfectly captured Toph’s hair style, which she wears up with a green headband and flowers. She also faithfully depicted her flowing white gown, including the heroine’s gold trimmed waist sash in a photo taken by ‘keydou_photo‘.

As if her costume wasn’t impressive enough, the cosplayer depicted Toph in action by clenching a handful of dirt as it falls between her fingers. In another shot, she brings the character’s earthbending to life as the earth particles float around her.

Atlass also dressed up as Beifong’s third season fire nation look, which the heroine wears as a disguise while sneaking into enemy territory. In a picture taken by ‘pugoffka_sama‘, the artist holds her arms up as she lifts two boulders into the air using incredible effects.

League of Legends cosplayer ready to rebel as Vastayan “baddy” Xayah

League of Legends cosplayer Wanderlustica, who made a name for herself as a cosplay extraordinaire, has brought feisty ADC heroine Xayah to life in all her Vastayan glory ⁠— you won’t see many LoL cosplays much better than this!

In 2017, League of Legends developers Riot Games decided to try something a little outside the box for their next champion release. Instead of dropping just one character, they debuted a duo ⁠— feathery Vastayan lovers Xayah and Rakan.

The pair fit like a glove. She was an ADC, and he was her support. The pair ⁠— and their sassy love ⁠— soon became fan-faves in the League of Legends fandom.

League cosplayer rules roost as Xayah

Of course, like any League favorite, there’s been plenty of cosplay takes on the pair. Now, that includes famous cosplayer Wanderlustica, who donned a stunning costume of the LoL “baddy” for an Instagram photoshoot earlier this month.

Wanderlustica’s stunning Xayah cosplay is absolutely amazing. She’s got every detail on point, from the Vastayan’s big busy ears, to her blue and red battle robe, and even the skull adorned on her shoulder from her old victories.

The Xayah outfit also had the purple hood the ADC wears into every game on Summoner’s Rift, as well as her glorious purple and blood-red feathers. Luca rounded out the cosplay with knee-high wrap boots, and tough steel vambraces.

“I definitely loved wearing this cosplay, I love badass characters and Xayah is definitely one of them!” the Dutch cosplayer said of her League cosplay. “I’m so in love with it.”

Luca, who often makes her cosplays before showing them off on Instagram, was actually sent this Xayah outfit from Ezcosplay. The cosplay company had put the outfit together for Wanderlustica, who then added makeup and effects.

Wanderlustica is far from the only League cosplayer to unveil a fancy new outfit recently either. Ariatamagotchi got into the Halloween spirit earlier this month with a perfect take on Bewitching Nidalee, and Sweet Angel donned an awesome Akali cosplay in late September.

Luca also has more LoL projects in the works too. She’s already set to reveal her new K/DA cosplay soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that in November!
