Ty Lee is one of the most likable ‘villains’ in Avatar: The Last Airbender, and she’s a popular choice among cosplayers as well. MilkyPuff, who also happens to be a Twitch partnered streamer, dressed up as her and looked like the real deal.

Avatar: The Last Airbender blurred the lines between some heroes and villains, and that’s what happened with Ty Lee. The series introduced her as one of Princess Azula’s friends and right-hand girls.

However, fans were instantly drawn to her bubbly and likable personality, which was a stark contrast to Azula’s ruthlessness and Mai’s apathy. Plus, she’s a talented and acrobatic martial-artists and a chi-blocking master.

Ty Lee quickly became a fan-favorite character despite being a ‘villain,’ and it’s easy to understand why. Her kind nature and charming demeanor never fade throughout the series. It even drives her to make a crucial decision that impacts the story.

Ty Lee is friendly and bubbly, but she’s an expert martial-artist too.

A cosplayer and streamer named MilkyPuff put an incredible Ty Lee piece together for her fans. She did it live on stream, and it was an excellent way to show her fans the ins and outs of cosplay.

“We did this cosplay on stream!” she said. “My braid kept falling off my head when I was taking these photos.” Fortunately, she managed to keep it together for the final shot, and her cosplay looked perfect.

Ty Lee’s outfit is simple enough to pull off. Unlike other characters from the Fire Nation, she wears pink acrobatic clothes with multiple layers and shades of red. It also leaves her stomach exposed and flares off at the shoulders.

Still, MilkyPuff did an excellent job and re-created it to a tee. She even nailed the hair, ponytail, and the overall vibe and expression. Her fans loved it and couldn’t stop praising her for how incredible she looked.

If you want to see more of MilkyPuff’s content, don’t forget to tune in to her Twitch channel. She’s cosplayed everything from Teen Titan’s Raven to Chel from Disney’s El Dorado live on stream, and plenty of others will follow.

Avatar: The Last Airbender fans love Toph for her tomboyish vibe despite being raised like a princess, but a brilliant cosplayer managed to capture her elegant side by creating a refined version of her usual outfit.

The heroes in Avatar: The Last Airbender all bring something unique to the table. However, Toph is particularly remarkable because she managed to become an earth-bending master despite being blind since birth.

Initially, she wanted to prove to her parents that blindness didn’t make her weak. But she became one of the most powerful characters in the show and a valuable Team Avatar member.

Toph Beifong turned her back on a sheltered childhood to become a powerful earth-bender.

Toph is a popular choice among cosplayers too. But while we’ve seen everything from her traditional get-up to an elegant dress she once wore, it’s hard to find one more unique than Emma J.I.Q Rubini’s Art Nouveau Toph.

“You see nothing once, and you’ve seen it a thousand times,” she said, referring to a quote. “Y’all remember when we used to have cons? I’m so happy I went to Katsucon this year since it ended up being the only one I went to.”

“Here’s the cosplay I made for it,” she added. “Art Nouveau Toph! I am incredibly proud of the work I put into it, and I’m happy I got to wear it to such a pretty con! One day maybe I’ll wear it again.”

Emma managed to capture all the crucial elements of Toph’s everyday outfit. It includes the green and beige garments, the hairstyle tucked under a headband with a flower, and of course, contact lenses to match her eyes.

However, she’s added some exotic details in line with a style known as Art Nouveau. It combines elegantly woven tapestries with encrusted jewels and other bits and pieces to add some class.

Cosplayers and their fans know how much time and effort it takes to re-create an outfit faithfully. However, it takes creativity, talent, and courage to add your flair. Emma nailed it, and the thousands of likes she’s getting are a testament to that.
