An Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayer went viral after transforming into Zuko. The talented YouTuber brings the Fire Nation prince to life with a fiery female twist. 

Avatar celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2020 as it made its debut on Nickelodeon in 2005. The groundbreaking animation has seen a major revival in popularity after Netflix added it to their platform in June.

YouTuber ‘Gibi ASMR‘ went viral after sharing her mindblowing take on beloved character prince Zuko. The online personality transformed into the Fire Nation royalty with an insanely accurate cosplay by ‘theomancycos.’

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.

Despite ending in 2008, The Last Airbender’s legacy has only continued to grow with time. In June, Netflix added the series to its service,= and renewed the animation’s popularity in pop culture.

The streaming giant also has plans to bring Avatar Aang’s story to life, in the form of a live action drama. For everything we know so far about the project, check out our guide here.

World of Warcraft has inspired a whole collection of amazing cosplays, but one cosplayer truly brings WoW into reality with her amazing Kyrestia cosplay. 

When it comes to Blizzard’s World of Warcraft universe, there are limitless possibilities to create amazing cosplays. The huge array of iconic characters, coupled with the impressive customization for your own hero or villain, makes the title perfect for passionate fans.

We recently saw cosplayer Cinderys create an amazing Sylvanas cosplay just in time for the release of Shadowlands, which in turn managed to score her Blizzard’s seal of approval.

This time around the subject of this amazing cosplay is Sylvanas’ polar opposite, Kyrestia the Firstborne, the ruler of Bastion.

2021 has brought with it a lot of insane cosplays, but this one is certainly one of the most memorable so far.

Artist PlexiCosplay (Plexi) has outdone herself with this beautiful transformation. Having painted herself aqua from head to toe, she can be seen adorned in Kyrestia’s iconic white and gold outfit whilst channeling the Ascended queen’s angelic nature.

What your eyes are immediately drawn to are the wings though. Mirroring the sky blue of her skin, their construction is perfect. Tipped with gold trims that tie in with her vestments and stunning recreation of the warrior’s crown, Plexi literally is Kyrestia.

WoW fans are stunned

Considering the wings are, according the Plexi, “15 feet long,” it’s safe to say that fans can’t miss this cosplay.

It’s the wings that have really gotten attention. One fan’s hilarious comment simply wrote: “the wind: I’m about to end this woman’s whole career,” to which Plexi responded “YOU NAILED IT.”

Another respondent was equally as humorous, writing “Kyrestia flight 77 you are cleared for takeoff, proceed to runway 4.”

All of these comments though praised this amazing cosplay, with one comment summing it up: “This blew my mind!!! I thought someone cropped the Archon out and pasted her onto some road!”

It’s safe to say that Plexi has truly embodied the fan favorite Ascended. She’s not only radiant, but emits a ‘don’t mess with me’ aura. We can’t wait to see her next WoW cosplay, as if she keeps going like she’ll be the queen of not just Bastion, but the WoW cosplay scene in no time!
