Avatar: The Last Airbender Shakes Up Aang's Aesthetic in Cool Cosplay

Aang and the gang of Avatar The Last Airbender might have ended their journey over a decade ago, but that hasn't stopped the fandom from revisiting the franchise in exciting new ways. With Netflix currently working on its live-action adaptation of the fan-favorite and Avatar Studios working on creating new animated projects which will bring fans back to the world of Aang and Korra, one cosplayer has given the original airbender a new aesthetic. 

Instagram Cosplayer Sixth Raikage 6 shared this brand new take on the first Avatar that introduced fans to the world of bending via the animated Nickelodeon series which still remains a fan-favorite that many consider to be one of the greatest animated series ever released:

Recently, Netflix revealed that a few new cast members were being added to their upcoming live-action take on Aang and the gang, with these actors joining the likes of Gordon Cormier's Aang and his fellow benders:

  • Elizabeth Yu (she/her; Untitled Ray Romano Film, All My Love) will play Azula, the intensely driven princess of the Fire Nation. A firebending prodigy and relentless perfectionist, she'll stop at nothing to secure her position as the heir to the throne.
  • Maria Zhang (she/her) will play Suki, the intimidating leader of the Kyoshi Warriors, an elite female fighting force dedicated to protecting their community and upholding the ideals of their namesake, Avatar Kyoshi.
  • Tamlyn Tomita (she/her; The Good Doctor, Cobra Kai) will play Yukari, Suki's mother and the fiercely protective mayor of her small village on Kyoshi Island.
  • Yvonne Chapman (she/her; Kung Fu, Family Law) will play Avatar Kyoshi, a legendary warrior revered for her bravery, fearsome fighting skills, and uncompromising dedication to the cause of justice.
  • Casey Camp-Horinek (she/her, Barking Water, Reservation Dogs) will play Gran Gran, Katara and Sokka's grandmother and the compassionate and wise matriarch of the Southern Water Tribe.
