Avatar cosplayer goes viral as perfect Zuko
One of the most beloved characters in the series is Zuko. The angsty firebender goes on an emotional journey throughout the story, and with the help of his Uncle Iroh, searches for his own destiny.
Popular YouTuber Gibi brought the prince to life in a stunning cosplay posted to Twitter on July 19. The talented artist absolutely nailed the look, capturing his short parted hair and re-creating his signature burn scar by using makeup.
Gibi adorably recreated a scene from the Season 3 episode The Western Air Temple, where the he awkwardly tries to practice how to introduce himself to Aang and the group. The tweet was appropriately captioned “Hello, Zuko here.”
Incredibly skilled artist ‘TheomancyCos’ meticulously crafted Zuko’s iconic red and gold outfit, which Gibi posed in to bring the Avatar character to reality. In another shot on Instagram, the star looks so much like the Fire Nation royalty, that it’s also as if he’s burned his way out of the screen.
