North California-based model behemoth_cosplay showed off her impressive take as Avatar: The Last Airbender’s Katara with a neat action shot with some waterbending action.

Taking to Instagram, the cosplayer, whose first name is Megan, uploaded a photo of herself dressed as Katara. What makes the photo special, aside from the great outfit, is the neat water effect.

In the photo, taken by fellow cosplayer, awesomejaymee, Behemoth is seen controlling water with her right hand while some swirls in her left. It’s a nice touch that adds some flair to an already solid cosplay with all the right looks.

With her hair, Megan purchased a wig from Arda Wigs called “Danny in cool brown.” It does a nice job at matching Katara’s hair, which changes styles several times during the series.

For her eyes, she decided to use mystery blue contacts from TTDeye to imitate the waterbending master.

The rest of the costume was made by the cosplayer herself, and it too looks ripped directly from the American animated series.

Behemoth even went out of her way to craft a necklace identical to Katara’s grandmother’s, which the character wears.

Finally, the cosplayer’s blue robe syncs up with the one Katara wears quite nicely. And, may we add, looks quite comfortable too. Overall, the whole get up really captures the essence of the waterbender and is a fine example of a well-crafted cosplay.

This isn’t the only outfit that Behemoth has come up with either. She’s also dressed up as Jasmine from Disney’s Aladdin, Freddy Kreuger from Nightmare on Elm Street, Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII and Dragon Ball Z’s Goku.

Now that is one heck of a diverse lineup of cosplays spanning many genres and franchises.

It would seem like the model can do anything she sets her mind to and we can’t wait to see what she has up her sleeve for future cosplays.

A talented cosplayer brought the Last Airbender’s Toph Beifong to life with a stunning costume. The artist captured the earthbender’s regal look before she joined team Avatar.

Avatar first aired on Nickelodeon in 2005, and has since become a cultural phenomena. Despite releasing 15 years ago, the animation has seen a major revival in popularity in 2020 after Netflix added it to its service back in April.

Fans of the series can’t seem to get enough of the blind earthbender, Toph. To celebrate the beloved character, a talented cosplayer re-created the heroine’s elegant Beifong estate look from Book 2.

Toph may be blind, but that doesn’t stop her.

Avatar cosplayer re-creates Toph’s elegant side

In Season 2 of the show, Avatar Aang needs to find an earthbending master. The monk ends up discovering a blind fighter in the Earth Kingdom named Toph, who uses her feet to see and feel the ground beneath her.

While the heroine is rough around the edges for a lot of the show, she actually comes from a very wealthy family. Capturing Toph’s regal costume from her introduction episode, cosplayer ‘rionafae‘ transformed into the character on Instagram.

The artist nailed the earthbender’s Beifong estate look, perfectly re-creating her flowing green and patterned dress. She even included the character’s intricate flowered headband which keeps her long black hair up and tidy.

The post immediately gained attention on the social media platform, gaining over 14k likes at the time of writing. The cosplayer could easily be mistaken for a live-action film version of the earthbender.

In another photo, Riona gave viewers a full look at her outfit. Mirroring a pose from the animation, the artist depicts Toph’s regal side when living with her family. The picture is put next to fanart of the Avatar character by ‘aireenscolor‘ to show accurate her costume really is.

This isn’t the first time rionafae has dressed up as an Avatar character. In September, she went viral when pulling off the perfect re-creation of Princess Azula’s squad member, Mai.

Those wanting to watch it the critically acclaimed animation can catch all episodes on Netflix right now. Its sequel, The Legend of Korra, is also on the streaming service.
