A talented cosplayer wowed fans with her scorching take on Avatar: The Last Airbender’s Prince Zuko, and restored the popular character’s honor with an incredible female twist.

The Last Airbender originally aired in 2005 on Nickelodeon, and took the animation world by storm as its mix of lovable characters and mature themes connected with fans from around the world.

Centered around a story about a monk named Aang, the protagonist is the Avatar and is the only person who can bend all four elements of earth, air, water, and fire. He is tasked with mastering them to bring balance to everything.

A skilled cosplayer brought troubled prince Zuko to life, who is in search of his honor throughout the series, and gives the popular character an amazing twist.

NickelodeonThe popular character is prince to the Fire Nation.

Zuko brought to life with fiery cosplay

Zuko is the banished prince from the Fire Nation who wants to gain back his honor by capturing the Avatar, with the hopes of one day being able to return to his kingdom and regain his royal title.

Cosplayer ‘nishi.artist‘ perfectly recreated his iconic burn scar around his left eye, which he received after his father Ozai – the ruler of the Fire Nation – scorched his face after questioning one of his decisions.

The complicated character goes through many changes during the three seasons of the show, but the cosplayer’s take is from his third season arc, when our heroes are stuck in Fire Nation territory.

Nishi takes it up a notch with her stunning photography which she captures outdoors in fitting locations, bringing realism to her costume as it’s almost like a scene from right out of the show.

Due to Zuko being royalty and his easily recognizable scar, the prince has to hide his face with his outfit during the final chapter of the series, as he and the heroes are stuck in enemy territory.

The beautiful costume captures his flowing red cloak, as well as his golden sash and trimmings, which run down to the character’s boots, as the artist nails the traditional Fire Nation attire.

Avatar fans have a lot to look forward to as Nickelodeon announced in October that they are re-releasing the entire series on Blu Ray with a collectors edition steelbook, although they are only making 20,000 of them.

Netflix also announced that they are bringing back the beloved animation in 2020 with a live-action remake, making for the perfect celebration for the show’s 15th anniversary.

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
