An Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayer went viral on Instagram after transforming into the show’s fiery villain Princess Azula.

Despite releasing in 2005, The Last Airbender has continued to be one of the most influential animations of all time. In 2020, the Nickelodeon series had a major revival in popularity after Netflix added it to its service in April.

Celebrating the groundbreaking show, a talented cosplayer shared her mind-blowing transformation into antagonist Princess Azula. The artist’s stunning true-to-life take on the character will have Avatar fans feeling the heat.

Avatar cosplayer brings Azula to life

First introduced at the end of Season 1, Princess Azula quickly becomes one of the show’s most formidable characters. Despite her wicked personality, fans can’t get enough of the Fire Nation royalty’s savage attitude and incredible firebending power.

Cosplayer Ally Vyner made waves on Instagram when she brought the beloved villain to life with her insanely accurate costume. Photographer ‘eclectic_cohesion’ captured the artist recreating Azula’s firebending stance from Avatar’s series finale.

The prop maker showed off the incredibly detailed outfit while perfectly mirroring the villain’s fighting pose taken from her Agni Kai against Zuko. Not only does Ally look like the popular antagonist, she manages to mimic her movements, truly bringing her to life.

In another shot posted to social media, the cosplayer depicted a scene from the series when the princess shoots lighting from her fingers. Ally absolutely nailed Azula’s Fire Nation royal attire, which includes black and gold trimmed armor that sits over her red outfit underneath.

The Last Airbender celebrated its 15th anniversary this year and to celebrate, Nickelodeon re-released the entire series in HD. The show, however, found renewed mainstream success back in April after Netflix added seasons 1-3 to its platform.

Those in love with the franchise are in luck as the streaming service also has its sequel, The Legend of Korra, available right now. The spinoff story follows the next Avatar and takes place 100 years after Aang’s story.

League of Legends cosplayer blooms like a flower as Spirit Blossom Ahri

Spirit Blossom Ahri is one of the most vibrant champion and skin combinations in League of Legends, but rather than trying to imagine how awesome she’d look in the real world, a cosplayer named Faid Eyren made it happen.

League of Legends characters all have a unique look and vibe. However, it’s hard to name one more fascinating than Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox. She is a part of an animal-like race called Vastaya. They descended from enlightened mortals that harnessed power from the spirit realm.

Ahri has that power too. Her abilities revolve around reshaping magic into orbs of raw energy. She’s also technically a Nine-Tailed Fox, with nine tails flaring out from her backside.

Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox, has one of the best-looking character models in the game.

Ahri’s default skin looks fantastic. However, Spirit Blossom Ahri looks even better. It has a more floral and mystical appearance, complete with pink hair, bright blue tails, and a majestic white and pink kimono.

Faid Eyren is a brilliant cosplayer from Ukraine. In the past, she’s dressed up as everything from Demon Slayer’s Shinobu Kocho to Sword Art’s Asuna Yuuki. Now, she’s brought Spirit Blossom Ahri to life.

“Every spirit forgets itself eventually, but I’m always on their horizon,” she said. “Finally, I’m happy to show you the result of our collaboration with @cosplaysky! I fell in love with this amazing costume immediately! It’s not just super beautiful, but very convenient to wear. It fits perfectly!”

The costume, which was designed and tailor-made by cosplaysky, is stunning from head to toe. But there’s no denying that Faid Eyren wore it well and made it look like the real deal. 

Let’s not forget about ears from lulu_cosplayer and the photography edits from gaerwen_art, either, which rounded it off nicely.

It’s hard to pull off Spirit Blossom Ahri since it’s one of the most majestic-looking skins in the game. However, Faid Eyren nailed it, and the overwhelming support and praise from her fans prove it.
