A talented cosplayer showed off her take on Avatar: The Last Airbender’s protagonist Aang, and it will have you seeing the lovable air-bending monk in a new element.

Nickelodeon debuted The Last Airbender in 2005, and the animation became a cult hit as the show about a kid monk who is forced to bring balance to the world connected with millions.

The story takes place in a world where people can bend the four elements of earth, water, air and fire, and only one person can control all four of them called the ‘Avatar’ – who is looked upon to keep the peace.

One creative cosplayer showed off her design for the kid protagonist who is thrust on his journey to becoming the Avatar, and gave the air-bender an incredible gender twist.

Nickelodeon The 2005 animation became a huge hit for Nickelodeon, as the story of Aang resonated with millions of viewers.

In the animation, Aang is a part of the air nation of pacifist monks that can bend the air around them. Living in a temple in the sky, they live in peace.

Artist ‘cosplayversace‘ shared her perfect recreation of the protagonist’s yellow and orange monk robes, while also recreating his iconic glider staff, which he uses to fly.

One of the more interesting aspects of Avatar Aang is his ability to connect with the spirit world. Throughout the show’s run, he has to learn how to meditate, and find his connection with the spirits.

The talented cosplayer managed to accurately capture his meditative pose he makes when he disconnecting from his body and entering the spirit realm, as the arrows on his head and hands glow in the animation.

The Avatar fan has also dressed up as other characters from the series such as series antagonist Princess Azula, as well as the protagonist from the sequel-spin off The Legend of Korra, which aired in 2012.

While The Last Airbender ended in 2008, Netflix announced in 2019 that they are bringing the beloved animation back in 2020 for a live-action remake, with the series creator returning to produce.

Shinobu Kocho might look innocent from afar, but if you’re a demon and you get too close, you’ll see the deadly side of the butterfly. She’s a popular Demon Slayer character to cosplay, but ‘aka_purin’ has truly put together one of the most beautiful designs yet.

Shinobu Kocho is a fan-favorite in Demon Slayer, and it’s easy to see why. Not only does the Demon Corps member possess incredible powers to heal friends and harm demons, but she is one of the most beautiful characters in the show.

Her personality is a difficult one to channel though. While she’s seemingly innocent on the outside, deep inside of her, there’s a rebellious rage to get revenge.

Shinobu Kocho is a dazzling and powerful Demon Slayer.

It’s one thing to make a cosplay, put it on, and take a picture. It’s another thing to really channel what a character is all about, and that’s what sets ‘aka_purin’ apart from the other Shinobu cosplayers.

Sharing the intricate design on her Twitter, the Polish cosplayer spared no expense and left no stone unturned in her flawless design. Her hair and makeup is perfect, even getting the butterflies pinned.

She also created her special katana, which is based on an insect’s “stinger” more than a blade itself. The tattered, battle-worn hilt and blade is a wonderful addition to the cosplay that really ties it all together.

That’s the special thing about purin’s cosplay too. Every element just ties everything together. While even just one of these things would be pretty special in a cosplay, being able to jam it all in one photo is the most beautiful thing of all.

The Shinobu design might be her latest, but she’s unsure on what her next project will be. “I feel like I’m having an art block lately. I just have so many ideas and costumes to shoot but I just can’t put myself up for it,” she admitted on her Instagram.

No matter what it is though, we bet Purin will knock our socks off.
