A skilled cosplayer has brought Avatar: The Last Airbender’s Azula to life with their mind-bending costume. The artist's faithful re-creation of the sinister princess will have you feeling the heat.

The Last Airbender originally aired on Nickelodeon in 2005. Its story about a monk named Aang who can bend the four elements of earth, water, air, and fire connected with millions.

A cosplayer shared their insanely accurate take on the series villain Azula. The artist's detailed re-creation of the Fire Nation royalty is one of the best things you will ever see.

The series follows Avatar Aang on his quest to master the elements and bring balance to the world. However, throughout the story, he is ruthlessly hunted down by Azula.

Cosplayer ‘Zab Ashton’ transformed into the popular character, re-creating a fight scene between the princess and her brother Prince Zuko. Photographer 'adoylible' captured the artist striking her bending stance.

Zab posted more photos of their costume on Instagram, giving a better glimpse of the amount of detail that went into pulling it off. In what could have been a scene from the show, the cosplayer posed outdoors with a backdrop that looks like Ember Island.

The cosplayer absolutely nailed the princess's royal attire, from the gold trimming to her black pauldrons. Her faithful outfit even includes the character's signature red pointed boots.

As if that wasn't enough, the artist teamed up with their friends to faithfully re-create Azula's group. The cosplayer's incredibly accurate portrayals of Mei and Ty Lee make this one of the best Avatar takes we've ever seen.
