A skilled Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayer recently debuted her Yue outfit, and it’s so good, it’s as though the Northern Water Tribe Princess has actually come to life.

The Last Airbender is constantly praised as one of the best animations of all time. Made by Nickelodeon, the series follows 12-year-old Aang – an Air Nomad destined to be the Avatar who gets trapped in ice for 100 years. After he’s awakened by Southern Water Tribe siblings Katara and Sokka, he discovers he’s the last of his kind left, and that the Fire Nation has taken over the world.

In Book One, the trio come together to form the beginnings of Team Avatar, and travel to the Northern Tribe where they’re introduced to Princess Yue, a non-bender and daughter of Chief Arnook. Talented fan ‘c.harmante’ created an amazing cosplay of the royal character that will be sure to blow fans away.

Avatar cosplayer becomes Yue

The first thing you notice about Charmante’s cosplay is her wig. It replicates the Princess’s hair to a tee, right down to the white braids that frame her face and the ornate decorations .

She even nailed the two hair loops at the top of her head, finishing it off with a beautiful green and gold hairpiece to tie it all together with perfect accuracy.

The fan shows off how much she looks like the character by putting her work next to a screenshot from the show. Pulling a displeased facial expression, it’s clear just how accurate her take really is.

In another shot, the artist gave fans a closer look at the outfit she chose to replicate Yue. Since she lives in the Northern Water Tribe in the North Pole, it’s obviously freezing cold.

She decided to wrap up in a white, fluffy wrap to represent this, mimicking the character’s wooly hood on her royal uniform. The fan also wore a blue outfit underneath, matching the colors of the Princess’s Tribe attire.

Charmante is a perfect fit for Yue, and brings the character to life. She’s also recreated Toph Beifong from the episode when she lives with her wealthy family at their estate.

If this has left you wanting to watch the hit Nickelodeon show, then you’re in luck. Netflix has just added the entire thing to their roster, meaning you can binge it to your heart’s content.

The streaming service is also bringing the animation to life in the form of a live-action drama. For everything we know about it, check out our guide here.

A My Hero Academia cosplayer made waves on Instagram after creating the perfect depiction of hot-headed character Katsuki Bakugou. The artist’s explosive take on the protagonist will have fans feeling the heat.

Few animes transcend the level of popularity that My Hero Academia has. Its story about a high school that trains teenagers with superpowers called quirks has become an absolute worldwide phenomenon.

A cosplayer celebrated the franchise by sharing their true-to-life take on popular character Katsuki Bakugou. The artist looks so much like him, it’s almost as if the fiery student has burned his way out of the screen.

My Hero Academia cosplayer’s perfect Bakugou

While most of the anime centers on main protagonist Izuku Midoriya, the series quickly introduces a diverse cast once the character enrolls at U.A High. One of those is his childhood friend and rival Bakugou. 

Cosplayer Soph ‘sophieriiis’ went viral on Instagram after sharing their mind-blowing transformation into the hot-headed Katsuki. The artist brought the student’s explosive quirk to life with the help of photographer ‘jacob.cr2‘, who captured them posing with flames shooting from their hands.

In the series, Bakugou is able to store up sweat into his grenade shaped wrist guards, which Sophie has faithfully portrayed with life-size props. The artist also perfectly mirrored the hero’s large metal knee pads and neck brace which he uses to protect himself from explosions.
