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.

The artist’s detailed outfit has us seeing double as they perfectly pulled off the Avatar villain’s bun hairstyle tied together with the Fire Nation’s royal crest piece.

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.

Avatar fans have a lot to be excited for as the show is being revived as a live-action drama on Netflix. Series creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko are even returning to helm the epic project. For all the information, you can check out our ‘Everything we know’ guide here.

The groundbreaking animation celebrated its 15th anniversary in February. Despite ending in 2008, it continues to be influential – especially in the cosplay scene.

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
