A talented cosplayer shared her take on Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender protagonist Aang which is sure to wow fans as she bends the elements around her. 

The Last Airbender debuted on Nickelodeon back in 2005, and quickly became a cultural phenomena as viewers connected with the show’s story about a monk named Aang who can bend the four elements of earth, air, water, and fire.

A skilled female cosplayer shared her mindblowing costume of the animation’s protagonist, and proved exactly why the character is so important in the show.

NickelodeonThe show’s protagonist is a kid monk named Aang that bends air.

The show centers around a child named Aang who is born as the Avatar, and is on a journey to master the four elements, so that he can bring balance to the world.

Cosplayer Maisie ‘scarymchairyart‘ Carter showed off her jaw dropping Last Airbender costume, transforming into the Avatar with an incredibly accurate portrayal of the series protagonist, even down to the iconic blue arrow tattoo on his forehead.

Not only did she perfectly capture the air nomad’s traditional red and yellow monk outfit, she took her cosplay to the next level by creating the illusion of airbending with the use of a white ribbon she whipped around.

In the first season of the show, Aang is focused on mastering his water-bending skills, and sets out across the world to reach the Northern Water Tribe to find a teacher.

As if her cosplay wasn’t incredible enough, Maisie also has a different colored ribbon that is white and blue so that when it’s twirled, it looks just like water-bending from the show.

The amount of detail that went into this cosplay is stunning, as the talented artist even manages to strike Aang’s bending poses to go along with each element that she is representing, making this one of the best we’ve seen of the character.

I've always lived my life by the flow, going in whatever direction felt right. It's always worked for me but now that I have a focus, a direction and discipline I'm starting to find I have more power than I realise. Strike the mountain in the right place and watch it crumble or doggedly lap the stones till they're smooth as glass. When the flow moves with precision, it can change the world ?⛰ ? #avataraangcosplay #avataraang #waterbender #avatarcosplay #avatarthelastairbender #avataraangcosplay #atlacosplay #avatarthelastairbendercosplay

While Avatar ended in 2008 after just three seasons, Netflix announced in 2019 that they will be bringing the show back in 2020 to their streaming service in the form of a live action remake.

And to celebrate the groundbreaking animation’s 15th anniversary, Nickelodeon is re-releasing the entire series on Blu Ray in a collectors steelbook, giving fans a lot to look forward to this year.

Ochaco Uraraka is one of the most charming characters in My Hero Academia, but even though she’s a popular pick in the cosplay community, it’s hard to find an outfit that looks as awesome as this one.

Ochaco Uraraka was first introduced in the third episode of My Hero Academia, and fans have loved her ever since. Generally, she’s upbeat, positive, laid-back, and a little air-headed at times.

However, she can be extremely determined and focused at times, and hates being underestimated. Plus, she has an incredible quirk known as ‘Zero Gravity.’ It lets her make specific targets immune to the effects of gravity and can be used in a variety of ways. 

Funimation
Uraraka is a favorite among fans due to her sweet personality.

Ochaco’s hero costume is made up of a black bodysuit with a pink design down the middle. It also has two black circles on her chest, a black rectangle below her waist, and two pink patches over her shoulders. She also wears pink armbands, a choker, a belt, wrist guards, and knee-high boots.

It’s one of the most iconic hero costumes in the show, and cosplayers love re-creating it as authentically as they can. However, a cosplayer named honeyrabbiit brought it to life in the most incredible way.

The picture of honeyrabbiit’s cosplay has already generated more than 20,000 likes, which is insane. The numbers keep on rising. She also made it herself, except for the wig, which was made by bep.cosplays.

In fact, it was so well-received, she posed in it again alongside bep.cosplays, who also happened to be wearing an awesome Katsuki Bakugo costume. “All I remember is that I was freezing and I took a hot bath after this shoot,” she said.

The second picture also has pulled more than 10,000 likes. It seems like My Hero Academia fans know an incredible cosplay when they see it, and won’t hesitate to pour in with support.

Of course, the epic photography from arcane_shutter in both shots was a nice touch, too. If we’ve learned anything from the show, it’s that a team effort can go a long way. The success of this honeyrabbiit’s cosplay is a good example of that.
