Fullmetal Alchemist remains one of the most popular anime in the world, and cosplayer ‘HoshiMedley’ showed off her love for one of the series main characters with a perfect recreation of Winry Rockbell.

Like many shows, Fullmetal Alchemist started life as a manga before making the leap to becoming an anime, something which propelled it to a worldwide audience who instantly became enthralled with the insane overarching universe that is filled to the brim with crazy characters.

It’s no surprise then that viewers around the world have chosen to show off their love for Fullmetal Alchemist by cosplaying as one of the many recognizable figures to come from the series, with mechanic Winry Rockbell one of the most popular choices for fans across the planet.

Winry is an exceptional mechanic who’s strong-willed personality endears her to viewers.

Winry is an incredibly talented mechanic, with her skills allowing her to repair a variety of machines no matter how difficult or complex the issues may be. It’s not just her abilities that make her a fan-favorite though, as her personality caught the hearts of viewers everywhere, with her strong will and empathetic nature helping her make tough decisions with difficult consequences, and look after Edward Elric.

Hoshi has captured the character’s instantly-recognizable look perfectly. Viewers of the show will know it’s rare to see the mechanic without her green bandana, which is wrapped around her blonde hair, with two strands falling either side of her face.

Elsewhere, Hoshi can be seen wearing the same black top with a white stripe down the middle and has her brown gloves on too, which she wears while performing repairs. The cosplayer finishes the look off with Winry’s trusty wrench, which she rarely is spotted without.

While Fullmetal Alchemist’s run ended over 15 years ago, it remains a truly popular anime, and still draws in viewers even today.

Writer, Director, and Try Guys member Eugene Lee Yang has absolutely blown Avatar: The Last Airbender fans away with his flawless cosplays, recreating not just Azula but Zuko too.

Since rising to internet fame with his work on YouTube series ‘the Try Guys,’ Eugene Lee Yang has established himself as a creator in his own right, producing many hugely viral videos exploring LGBTQ+ and Asian-American identities.

Each year in what he describes as his ‘Asian Halloween Tradition,’ Eugene cosplays different Asian characters from popular movies, TV shows, books and more to celebrate different aspects of those cultures, and works alongside a team to flex their outstanding costume and makeup skills.

In the past, he’s recreated characters like Mulan, Magnus Bane from the Mortal Instruments Series, and many more dating back to Halloween of 2009 when he cosplayed Russell from the animated film UP.

But this year, Eugene and his talented team treated fans to not just one, but two Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplays, and they were both as fantastic as each other.

Eugene cosplays Zuko and Azula

First, in a post that at the time of writing has 99,000 likes, he recreated the banished prince from the Fire Nation, Zuko.

Eugene models the brilliant costume by Kinetic Cosplay perfectly, the bold oranges and reds of the fabric creating a vibrant fire-like glow, which combined with the mix of silk trims and various types of fabric give a perfectly dynamic edge to the look.

His makeup artist Arianna Blean has also reformed Zuko’s signature eye scar, the scar wax looking intricate enough to be realistic, but also with a slightly animated feel in keeping with the original art style.

To fans’ surprise, Eugene even pulled out a second Avatar look to celebrate Halloween this year, also having a go at one of the show’s most popular villains, Fire Nation princess Azula in beautiful photos taken by JD Renes.

The absolutely stunning images show the YouTube star surrounded by lightning, filling the images with a mesmerizing blue-white glow. The black and gold plates contribute to a powerful silhouette, with the wig by danekez sculpted perfectly to look like the original, even keeping with the gold hairpiece in the center of the head.

Eugene put both characters together in the same image in a post that gained 40,000 likes, and even participated in a TikTok trend where he wipes a mirror to switch between the two characters, injecting the video with electric personality.

His series of posts about the cosplays have garnered hundreds of thousands of likes all together, and has already got people excited about what Eugene will pull out of the bag next Halloween.
