Avatar: The Last Airbender fans love Suki for her strong personality and impressive skills, but one cosplayer took her adoration to another level with a magnificent cosplay.

In the grand scheme of things, Suki is a relatively minor character in Avatar: The Last Airbender. However, she’s more than a mere love interest to Sokka. She’s a skilled combatant and the mighty leader of the Kyoshi Warriors.

Beneath her tough and assertive exterior, she’s compassionate, loyal, and committed to doing what she feels is right. A combination of all these qualities, mixed with her sarcastic sense of humor, has seen her become a fan-favorite.

Suki is popular among cosplayers too, since she wears all kinds of different outfits.  There’s everything from her traditional Kyoshi Warrior uniform with and without the face-paint to her Earth Nation and Fire Nation outfits.

Suki wears many different outfits throughout the series, including Fire Nation garments.

Eylon has dressed up as everything from Sucy from Little Witch Academia to Misty from Pokemon. Her work has already attracted more than 30,000 followers on Instagram. However, she upped her game even more as Suki from Avatar: The Last Airbender.

“Suki is one of my most elaborate cosplays,” she said. “Hannah Alexander’s designs are always so detailed, I absolutely love working on them. This little video was taken for the online cosplay contest of Gamescom this year.”

The outfit is flawless from top to bottom. Hannah Alexander’s craftsmanship is second to none, and the attention to detail is mindboggling. The dress has different green shades interlaced with subtle patterns. 

It’s complemented even further by the brown armor plates with gold seams, as well as the bracers and headpiece. The gold fan ties it all together perfectly and makes it look like the real deal.

However, Eylon deserves some credit too. The hair and make-up are on point, and she looks stunning. She even uploaded a before and after photo to show off her impressive transformation into Suki.

“Suki is maybe the furthest away from me in real life,” she said. “She is such a bada**, strong and independent woman while I’m a weak, way too emotional girly girl, but I really like cosplaying her.”

Eylon might not feel like she has much in common with Suki. However, she looks the part and deserves all the praise she’s getting. Hannah Alexander’s was already astounding, but it looked even better on Eylon.

Hopefully, it’s not the last time we’ll see the two of them work together to bring a character from Avatar: The Last Airbender to life.

Overwatch cosplayers embrace inner mad scientist as Sigma and Moira

Overwatch characters all have their quirks and differences, but Sigma and Moira have something in common; they’re both mad scientists, and two cosplayers brought them to life in a stunning way.

The mad scientist character archetype has been tried and tested time and time again. However, it’s hard to find a game that has done it better than Overwatch. They even managed to pull it off twice.

Moira O’Deorain, better known as Moira, is a geneticist who cares more about scientific advancement than human rights and ethics. It’s a little ironic, considering she’s a support hero.

Siebren de Kuiper, also known by his alias, Sigma, is very much the same. He’s an eccentric astrophysicist who gained the power to manipulate gravity after an experiment went wrong.

Sigma and Moira are two peas in a pod compared to other Overwatch characters.

Cosplayers are often community-minded, and three creative minds came together to bring Sigma and Moira to life. Stracichu and Lictor_01 teamed up with a photographer named Axel Nova, and the results are stunning.

The picture shows them standing back-to-back in what looks like an eerily-lit science lab. It even has some incredible after effects, including Sigma’s Hyperspheres and Moira’s Biotic Orb.

The outfits are based on flashbacks when we see the characters dressed up in lab coats. They’re both white with black and silver seams and hang well past their knees.

Sigma’s looks a bit like a military-jacket, with a high half-collar on his neck. It also has blue straps on the collar and around his elbows. He’s also wearing black gloves and even colored his hair slightly grey.

Moira’s looks a bit more traditional with a standard buttoned-up collar. However, she’s included a purple and black patch and two canisters with biotic energy strapped around her waist. The highlight is definitely the hair, though, which looks like the real deal.

It was a combined effort, and all three of them did an incredible job. The outfits were breathtaking from head to toe, the poses were on-point, and the photography was slick and professional.

Overwatch players love seeing their favorite characters brought to life, and talented cosplayers know exactly how to pull it off. The post on the Overwatch subreddit has already generated almost 7,000 upvotes, and they’re all well deserved.
