An Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayer transformed herself into Toph Beifong with a mind blowing outfit. The artist brought the heroine’s earthbending to life with incredible special effects. 

Avatar made its groundbreaking debut in 2005, and wowed audiences of all ages with its mature storytelling and epic world building. The series follows a monk named Aang, who as the Avatar, can control the elements of Water, Earth, Air, and Fire.

A talented cosplayer shared her insanely accurate costume of  popular character Toph Beifong. The jaw-dropping photos look so much like the lovable heroine, it’s almost as if she’s punched her way out of the screen and into real life.

The blind earthbender is one of the show’s most popular characters.

Avatar cosplayer brings Toph to life

The show follows Avatar Aang’s journey to master the four elements, and bring balance to the world. In Book 2, the monk is in search of an earthbending teacher, and finds it in the sassy but lovable Toph Beifong. The blind heroine uses her feet to sense the space around her.

Cosplayer ‘hyllenlaeuferin‘ transformed into the Avatar character, and wowed with how accurate her portrayal is. The artist posed as the character in her Season 2 green and yellow Earth Kingdom attire.

Hyllen perfectly mirrors Toph’s pulled back bun hairstyle, while having her messy bangs hang over her eyes. She even included the character’s signature green and gold headband, which has two white poms on each side.

In another incredible shot, the cosplayer brings earthbending to life, as she uses special effects and editing to lift rocks around her. She perfectly captures the character’s hand movements she uses when fighting.

Composings sind keine leichte Sache… man muss ständig auf Licht und Schatten… Schärfe und Unschärfe achten. Aber ein Tipp von mir.. oft ist es gut über alles nochmal einen Verlauf oder Farbiges Overlay zu legen, damit es sich mehr miteinander verbindet farblich. ?

Attack on Titan cosplayers have been dishing up their best cosplays in recent weeks to prepare themselves for the end of the series, but this Mikasa Ackerman piece is something else.

The fourth and final season of Attack on Titan ends on February 15, which isn’t too far away. It’s a bittersweet moment for fans who have followed the show since it’s release back in 2013.

However, that hasn’t stopped fans from making the most out of it. Instead, there’s been an influx of impressive cosplays as fans have dressed up as their favorite characters from the show.

The main characters received a new look in the latest season, which opened the door for cosplayers to take on new challenges and ideas. Mikasa Ackerman’s new look has been a popular choice.

Mikasa is one of the most powerful characters in Attack on Titan.

Chandary, a popular cosplayer from France, transformed herself into Mikasa and it turned out great. Her fans were stunned with the final product, describing it as everything from “iconic” to “the best reason for humanity to survive.”

“Are you excited for Mikasa new look in Season?” said Chandary. “I was able to do this [cosplay] thanks to my friend and waifu reitoneeo who lent me her jacket. Thank you [so much].”

All the details are spot on. Chandary has included the shirt, scarf, jacket, suspenders, and straps. The highlight, however, is definitely the hair, which looks about as real as it gets.

It’s always nice for anime fans to see their favorite characters brought to life in incredible detail. You don’t even have to be a cosplay enthusiast to appreciate it. 

Chandary has done an excellent job, and there’s no doubt she’s helped people get excited about what’s to come in the last few episodes.
