A talented Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayer has shared their incredible take on the Fire Nation’s Azula, bringing the princess to life in stunning detail.ย 

The Last Airbender made its groundbreaking debut on Nickelodeon in 2005, with viewers from around the world falling in love with its story about a monk named Aang who, as the Avatar, can control the elements of Water, Earth, Air, and Fire.

Added to Netflix in 2020, Avatar has once again captured the hearts and imaginations of old and new fans alike. It’s no surprise that many are cosplaying as their favourite characters from the series, including some of the show’s villains, such as the Fire Nation’s princess, Azula.

Azula is the powerful princess who hunts Aang in The Last Airbender.

Throughout the series, our hero Aang is ruthlessly hunted down by Azula, with the Fire Nation determined to kill the final Avatar, who is able to control all four elements: Earth, wind, fire, and water. With the last Avatar destroyed, nobody could stand in the Fire Nation’s path to complete dominance, with Azula’s success granting her a seat beside her father Lord Ozai.

So powerful and equally as terrifying, cosplayer and actress ‘minakess‘ has debuted her perfect recreation of the princess, bringing the character to life in stunning detail, and truly capturing the essence of Azula.

The 23-year-old’s hair is styled exactly like the characters, with two strands falling either side of her face while capturing small details like her belt and hairpiece perfectly. In fact, the entire outfit is so accurate, that Mina posted a side-by-side of herself in the costume beside the character, to show just how jaw-droppingly good it is.

Despite ending in 2008, The Last Airbender has continued to grow in popularity, thanks to its arrival on Netflix in May, which sent existing fans into meltdown and created a massive new audience of people who had never seen the incredible story before.

The streaming service also plans to bring Aang’s story to life in the form of a live-action drama, however, the original creators of the series announced they had left the adaptation on August 12, citing “creative differences” and a “negative and unsupportive environment.

In another shot posted to social media, the cosplayer gave viewers a better look at all the details that went into creating her One Piece costume. She even drew letters on the back of her fingers to spell out ‘DEATH’ to mimic his hand tattoo.

Channeling the cutthroat’s personality, she grabs the tip of her fur cap while holding their weapon by her side. This is easily one of the best takes we’ve ever seen of the Heart Pirate.
