Talented cosplayer ‘Hendo’ transformed into Avatar: The Last Airbender’s chi-blocking Fire Nation acrobat Ty Lee in an amazing take that looks as though she’s flipped right out of the screen.

In Avatar, viewers first meet Ty Lee in the Fire Nation circus as princess Azula convinces her to join her entourage in order to hunt down prince Zuko and his uncle, Iroh.

In May, the Nickelodeon animation was added to Netflix, and cosplayer ‘Hendo‘ decided to share her take on the gymnast to celebrate. It’s so good, it’s almost as though the live-action version of the show has arrived early.

Ty Lee grew up with Zuko, princess Azula, and Mai.

In the show, the character sports a long pigtail that starts at the crown of her head and runs all the way down her back. Hendo replicates this perfectly in her cosplay, even getting the acrobat’s bangs down to a tee.

The Fire Nation gymnast is usually seen wearing an all-pink outfit that consists of a collared shirt that shows off her midriff, and a pair of knee-high balloon pants. The cosplayer mimics this with ease in her take, and she even included her pink wristbands as well.

In another shot, Hendo details her outfit in full, showing just how much she looks like a real life version of Ty Lee. In the show, the acrobat ran away from home to join the circus, so wearing something light is ideal when performing.

Her chi-blocking skills allow her to temporarily paralyze enemies by targeting pressure points in their body, making the gymnast a force to be reckoned with – though she looks sweet and innocent on the outside.

Avatar: The Last Airbender is set to get a live-action version, alongside its Nickelodeon show. Series creators, Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, are spearheading the project, making it something fans definitely won’t want to miss.

There’s no release date for it yet, but those impatient for it can stream the animation in its entirety on Netflix right now. For everything we know about the upcoming project so far, check out our guide here.

Apex Legends cosplayer takes Horizon outfit to new heights

An Apex Legends cosplayer has stunned fans of Respawn’s BR by bringing Horizon to life, ensuring the Season 7 legend has never looked so real. 

The Apex Legends community has an incredible connection with Respawn’s source material, regularly sharing artwork, videos and cosplays inspired by the world and characters.

Horizon cosplays are obviously still fairly new, given that the Scottish legend was only added with Season 7. The Gravitational Manipulator has brought new levels of verticality to the Olympus map, thanks to her Gravity Lift, Spacewalk and Black Hole abilities.

As far as aesthetics go, Horizon is known for her spacesuit theme. Her iconic ginger hair protrudes out the top of her suit. It’s an awesome look, simultaneously cool and terrifying to see coming towards you in-game.

Horizon’s abilities give incredible movement options.

One cosplayer, though, took on the challenge and, with some incredible skill, came out looking exactly like the legend herself.

Sosenka (@itlookslikekilled on Instagram) shared her Horizon look on December 4, stunning her followers and the Apex community alike. She has previously shared a Loba cosplay, but many agreed that her Horizon look was even more impressive.

The white suit is complete to perfection, with the goggles and arm bands even down to a tee. At the time of writing, it sits at just shy of 9,000 likes.

The look was so good that it even drew the attention of Elle Newlands – the voice actress behind the Season 7 legend.

She said: “I stan, you stan, we all stan for the #Horizon Cosplay Queen!” 

Horizon, despite being fairly new to the game, has taken well to the Olympus map, currently sitting in our A-Tier in our legend rankings. Her pick rates are fairly high, and abilities incredibly useful. Cosplays as good as this only make us want to use her more.
