A skilled cosplayer stunned fans with his insanely accurate portrayal of Zuko, bringing the Avatar: The Last Airbender prince to life with some realistic fire-bending.

The Last Airbender first aired in 2005 on Nickelodeon, and follows the story of a kid monk named Aang who is the Avatar and can bend the four elements of earth, air, water, and fire.

However, on his quest to master his powers and bring balance to the world, he's chased down by Zuko – the prince of the Fire Nation – and a talented cosplayer became the popular character with scorching photography.

Cosplayer bends fire as Prince Zuko

Zuko is without a doubt the most complicated character in beloved animation, and goes through many changes during the three seasons of the show as he is on a journey to restore his honor.

The prince infamously has a burn scar over his left eye that he received from his father, which cosplayer 'edwin_iturriaga' perfectly nailed in his jaw-dropping take on him.

Edwin goes for the character's look in Book 3: Fire where his hair has grown out long again, and wears a red and yellow silk robe that is royal Fire Nation attire.

On top of looking exactly how we imagine a live-action depiction of the prince would be, he also took his costume to the next level with some stunning photography that uses flames to bring the firebender to life.

In a second photo that he shared on Instagram, the talented artist poses with a replica of prince Zuko's broadsword, which he infamously uses throughout the show.

The cosplayer has a following of over 2,000 on his social media, and likes to re-create characters from Star Wars to Spider-Man, as well as popular video games.
