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.

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.
