An Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayer went viral with her true-to-life Toph Beifong costume. The artist’s insanely accurate portrayal of the sassy earthbender had fans of the animation going wild.

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

Popular cosplay artist ‘mk_ays‘ went viral when she shared her mind-blowing costume of popular character Toph Beifong. She looks so much like the earthbender, it’s almost as if the heroine has blasted her way out of the screen and into real life.

The animated series follows Avatar Aang, who embarks on a quest to control his powers and bring balance to the world. In Book 2, a blind earthbender named Toph is introduced, who eventually becomes his earthbending master.

Cosplayer ‘mk_ays’ transformed herself into the popular heroine, and stunned fans with her faithful portrayal. The artist dressed up in the character’s costume from the introduction episode when she lives with her wealthy family at the Beifong estate.

Ays absolutely nailed the look, perfectly re-creating her black bun hairstyle, which includes bangs that frame her face. Posing in Toph’s fancy green and white kimono, she mirrors a scene from the show, while also capturing her blindness.

The cosplayer posted her work on Reddit, and went viral with over 44k upvotes at the time of writing. Avatar fans couldn’t stop gushing over her outfit, such as user ‘OtherGandalf’ who exclaimed, “You were meant to be Toph. The face is near perfect to the cartoon.” Another user, ‘Shockbooms,’ agreed, stating “It’s insane. Well done!”

Avatar fans were floored by how accurate the cosplay is.

This isn’t the first time the Russia-based artist has dressed up as an Avatar character. On June 11, she posted another true-to-life cosplay of Kyoshi warrior Suki, and has also portrayed Azula and Ty Lee.

Avatar: The Last Airbender has continued to grow in popularity over the years, as its epic story resonates with viewers. The show has seen an explosion of new fans after Netflix added it to their platform in April.

The streaming giant has plans to remake the series, bringing Aang’s story to life in the form of a live-action drama. For everything we know so far about the project, check out our guide here.

Killjoy might be the inventive genius in the Valorant roster, but one of her biggest fans deserves the title too after she dished up a remarkably accurate cosplay. 

Valorant’s Agents are all unique. They have different strengths and weaknesses in certain situations. Killjoy, for example, is an absolute menace to face due to her ability to crowd control using gadgets.

However, that’s not the only reason fans love her. She’s hip, quirky, and a genius both on and off the battlefield. Interestingly, she’s a popular choice among cosplayers too, probably because something is alluring about her vibrant style.

Killjoy might be a genius, but she acts and dresses in a way that many people can relate to.

Luminavira recently shared a picture of her incredible Killjoy cosplay on the Valorant subreddit, and it made quite an impression. It’s only been up for several hours and has already gained more than 500 upvotes and received plenty of positive feedback.

“Everyone makes fun of German efficiency,” she said, reiterating one of Killjoy’s lines. “Just keep laughing as you use all my gear.”

“I can finally show you some Killjoy pictures,” she added. “I am so proud of this Cosplay, and I love this girl so much. I know a lot of you guys don’t know Valorant, but I hope you like it anyway.”

Luminavira made the costume herself, and she has done a fantastic job. The beanie, glasses, jacket, t-shirt, ripped jeans, gloves, and shoes all look like the real deal. It’s a perfect blend of green, yellow, grey, and purple.

The accessories were a nice touch as well. She included the bracelet, hip bag, leg strap, and even a replica rifle. What’s more, the attention to detail is second to none, and people were quick to notice.

“Wow, that’s amazing!” said the top comment in the Reddit thread. “You got even the tiniest details right. Even the pants are ripped in the same place. You look fantastic!”

“Introducing the real-life killjoy. This is seriously amazing!” said another. It’s a sentiment that others have shared, and for a good reason. Luminavira managed to bring her to life in the most incredible way.
