An Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayer went viral when she transformed herself into the show’s loveable protagonist Aang. The skilled artist brought the monk to life with an incredible female twist that will leave fans in awe.

The Last Airbender made its groundbreaking debut in 2005 on Nickelodeon. The animated series captivated audiences from around the world, with its surprisingly mature themes and epic adventure storytelling.

Popular cosplayer ‘hendoart’ shared her mind blowing take on Aang, becoming the real-life Avatar with an insanely unique costume. The artist’s re-imagining will have fans seeing the Air Nomad like never before.

Avatar Aang is the protagonist of the popular 2005 animation The Last Airbender.

The story centers on a monk named Aang, who as the Avatar can bend the elements of Earth, Water, Air, and Fire. The protagonist has to master all of them in order to stop the impending threat of the Fire Nation, who is trying to control the world.

Prolific cosplayer Hendoart shared her true-to-life costume of the airbender, and stunned with her unique spin on him. Photographer ‘nerdypictures‘ captured the artist depicting the character’s airbending stance from the show.

In the story, Aang has iconic blue arrow tattoos that run down his forehead and go up his limbs. The ink is a part of his Air Nomad culture. Hendo perfectly re-created this, and it’s absolutely jaw dropping.

In another shot, the cosplayer shows how all the arrows of her tattoo connects into a center point. Her creative design truly captures the show’s themes about chakras and flowing energies.

The artist also created a second outfit that is an inspiration of both Aang and his granddaughter Jinora, who is heavily featured in the sequel-spin off series The Legend of Korra. In the picture, the she meditates and connects to the spirit world.

Fans and newcomers that have a hunger to watch the show can do so right now, as Netflix made all three seasons available in May. Ever since being added, Avatar is one of the most watched shows on the platform.

The streaming giant also has plans to remake the animation in the form of a live-action drama, and will be led by creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. For everything we know so far about the project, check out our guide here.

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
