Cosplayer ‘Pseudo’ stunned fans with an amazing take on the Fire Nation’s princess Azula from Avatar: The Last Airbender. 

Avatar is a fan favorite show based in a universe where everyone is split into four main nations based on their elements and powers – earth, air, fire, and water.

The show follows a long lost ‘Avatar’, a master of all four elements, named Aang. He sets out to harness his skills and eventually bring peace to the world, meeting many different unique and captivating characters.

This makes it a perfect show for cosplayers, as there are so many choices of characters. Some go with members of the peaceful and calm Water Tribe while others choose the intense and energetic Fire Nation.

Pseudo chose the latter and showed off an incredible cosplay of Azula – including all the attitude and pride of the fire princess. The Aussie cosplayer perfectly recreated her battle armor, stylishly showing off the Fire Nation’s iconic black, red, and gold.

It’s difficult to find any flaws with the outfit, in fact, if there were to be an official version of it made, this would probably be it. The cosplay features the classic double-shoulders, all the small details match up perfectly. The hair and even the lipstick are a precise recreation.

Azula is a fairly common character to cosplay due to her importance in the show. She’s one of the main antagonists and is often seen hunting down the Avatar and leading the Fire Nation’s armies in their bid to conquer the world.

Even though many have donned the outfit of the fire princess since the show’s release in 2005, Psuedo’s may just be the best one yet. Fans of the show and cosplay will undoubtedly be hoping for more to come.

A Pokemon cosplayer made waves on Instagram after becoming the real-life version of Sword & Shield’s female protagonist, Gloria.

The Pokemon franchise entered its eighth generation with the release of Sword & Shield in 2019. The RPG introduced players to the Galar region – which was largely inspired by famous locations in the U.K.

To celebrate the popular Nintendo Switch title, a talented cosplayer brought the game’s protagonist Trainer to life with their incredibly accurate costume. The artist’s adorable take on the heroine will capture fans’ hearts.

In Sword & Shield, players are given the option to choose either a male or female protagonist. The latter is called Gloria by default, although Trainers will no doubt customize their character’s name to their heart’s content.

Cosplayer ‘elle_pastelle’ went viral on Instagram after bringing the beloved heroine to life with her re-creation. Photographer ‘pastelle_images’ captured the artist adorably hoisting her Pokeball in the air.

The gorgeous outdoor backdrop used in the photo could easily be mistaken for a location in Galar, as Elle excitedly looks ready to begin her quest to become the region’s next champion.

Sword & Shield celebrated its first anniversary on November 15. Despite only releasing a year ago, the Nintendo Switch release has quickly become the third highest-grossing title in the Pokemon franchise. Proof that the series has never been more popular.

In November, fans of the game were able to dive into the RPG all over again with the debut of The Crown Tundra DLC on October 22. The add-on brought a handful of popular Legendaries to the Galar region and introduced the new Dynamax Adventures Mode.
