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.

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.

One of Jujutsu Kaisen’s most iconic characters is Satoru Gojo, the mysterious teacher at Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical College. One cosplayer has brought the sorcerer to life with an insane outfit. 

It’s safe to say that the anime universe beautifully intertwines with the cosplay scene. With a whole host of characters and iconic titles, the Japanese cartoon genre has become a global phenomenon.

Jujutsu Kaisen has become one of the most popular animes of 2020, and has dominated streaming website Crunchyroll for the last few months.

The fantasy series features one character that has managed to attract quite a bit of attention though, and that’s Satoru Gojo, teacher and Jujutsu Sorcerer extraodinare.

One of the reasons that cosplayers have flocked to Gojo is his unique style, which sees his eyes covered by a black eyemask. An outfit posted on Instagram by weian_vann (Vann) really brings the character to life though.

Not only is the outfit a perfect replica, Vann has nailed the iconic silver hair that has become so synonymous with the Cursed Energy master.

There’s a sense of foreboding around him though, and we can imagine the anime-style purple smoke kicking up around him to imply that he’s not one to mess with. The first image sees him posed on a backward chair in a stature that’s both playful yet menacing.

Fans are obsessed

The Chinese cosplayer’s image has almost 62k likes, and the comment section is filled with a whole host of Jujutsu fans heaping praise upon him for being able to bring the iconic character to life.

One fan has written “NO WAYYYYY MY HEARTTTT,” reacting in a similar way to many of the sorcerer’s lovestruck students.

Another fan commented on Vann’s masterful recreation of Gojo’s iconic silver hair, asking “Wow! How long did it take to get the hair like that? It looks great!”

A final commenter praised the entire outfit, writing that Vann “did so good” and that the cosplay “looks so realistic!”

So it’s safe to say that fans are really loving Vann’s rendition of Gojo, because not only does he perfectly recreate the outfit but he really becomes the character. As the anime progresses it’ll be exciting to see if he does any more magical cosplays, but in the mean time we can happily swoon away over this one!
