Its been a while since Avatar The Last Airbender Made its debut on

television. Specifically, 14 years to be exact. But no matter how

much time has passed it seems this show keeps making its way

back into the cosplay scene. I see it at nearly every convention I go

to. I also see advertisements for it all the time but that may just

because Google and Facebook track my search history. Anyways,

Ang, Zuko, Katara, Toph and Sokka seemed to creep their way

into our hearts and after three seasons were just gone.

RIP #gonebutnotforgotten. There was something mesmerizing

about Avatar the Last Airbender. Maybe it was General Irohs

wisdom or Zuko’s path of redemption that drew us in? Or even Ang

and Kataras innocent love story? I can’t say for sure but I can tell

you that it all blended together effortlessly and created one of the

best series Nickelodeon has ever seen. Despite the show being gone

for many years, we can still honor it with a bit of cosplay, right? In

this post, we look at the best cosplays from Avatar the Last

First up under the review microscope is none other than the Last

Airbender himself. That’s right, Ang. Despite his many

shortcomings, he eventually aspired to the avatar that we all

wanted him to become. He conquered each element and gradually

grew his understanding of not only this world but also the spiritual

world. Fortunately, most of the characters from this series wore

relatively simple clothing which will not cost you an arm and leg to

purchase. On the downside or bright side considering how you see

things, these costumes are custom made and will take some time to

be delivered.

Cosplaying as Ang will only set you back about $56 dollars. This is

a very good deal considering your cosplaying as an absolute legend

in the cartoon/anime world. To add the old razzle-dazzle to this

cosplay, go ahead and snag yourself a stuffed momo and plush

appa. For all you true Avatar the Last Airbender fans, I was unable

to find his glider but I did find his Staff and Boots. His staff and

costume will together run you about $106 bucks. Not bad at all and

definitely an awesome addition to the cosplay wardrobe.

Zuko was Angs adversary for much of the series due to a lying and

terrible father. That’s neither here nor there though. Zuko always

struggled with his place in the world and was constantly trying to

figure out what his exact goal and purpose were. Eventually, he

chased the Avatar for so long he began to open his eyes to whom

the true enemy was. Well, this accompanied by a bit of coaching

from his grandfather, General Iroh, Aka the dragon of the west.

Zuko struggled most of the series with not only his life goals but

also controlling the upgraded version of fire bending, lightning

bending. He unlike his golden child sister (Azula) was the outcast

of the family. I’m sure I’m not the only one that can relate to not

living up to your families expectations so this character definitely

resonates with me. Possibly also because im a fire sign. But

anyways cosplaying as Zuko will only cost you about $75 bucks.

Mix in his boots and you have a grand total of $130 dollars. Also

another Budget cosplay.

Toph Beifong

This character along with Zuko are tied for my first place favorite

characters. Why you ask? Glad you did. Its because not only does

Toph not take any crap from anyone, she’s sassy and extremely

powerful. So she can put her money where her mouth is. Not to

mention, she’s the only character in the series that I can recall has

a disability. But it’s her disability that makes her extremely strong.

She’s able to sense the world around her through vibrations. She

does it so well the rest of the cast commonly forgets she’s blind.

Toph is an earth bender and luckily has two cosplays available for

her. Toph also invented the metal bending style which is greatly

expanded upon in Avatar Korra. I personally think this may be the

second strongest of the elements simply because the ability to

manipulate metal gives her free range over nearly any weapon. But

I digress, her classic outfit along with her wedding dress outfit.

Either are great and I am always happy to photograph either of

Katara plays a very interesting role in the series. She can be both

kind and compassionate while also ruthless. She is a great friend

and eventual lover to Ang while also proving to be extremely

useful throughout the series with her healing, water bending and

blood bending abilities. That’s right you heard me blood bending.

This is the skill that I consider the strongest throughout the series.

It literally gives you the ability to control your opponent’s

movements. The possibilities of this are endless and I wish they

would have been expanded upon a bit.

Cosplaying as Katara is relatively simple and will only cost you

about $45 dollars.  Similarly to Toph, Katara has two available

outfits to choose from. First up is her classic water tribe outfit.

This is the outfit she wears throughout most of the series and will

be the most iconic. Her second outfit she only whore for her time

in the fire nation. Coincidently, she also wore this outfit during one

of the greatest scenes in the movie, the Ang and Katara Dance

scene. This was a legendary scene that you need to check out if you

haven’t seen it. In total, her outfit will only cost you about $80 to

pull off.

  Next up we have Kataras brother Sokka. Sokka is the only one in

the group that is unable to bend any of the elements. But he

doesn’t let this hold him back from being the group’s jester and

eventual sword master. Also being born in the Southern water

tribe, Sokka is very familiar with the customs of water benders

and never grows envious of his sister’s abilities. He promotes

everyone in the group and usually has some great ideas or plans

for the gang to initiate.

If you want to cosplay as Sokka, you’re going to have to make a few

decisions. Sokka has three costumes available for you to choose

from. We have already discussed his classic outfit so now we can

move onto his second classic cosplay or as I call it wolf man lol. He

wore this outfit with a wolf-shaped helmet that made him look like

a complete badass. Last, we have his Sword Master costume. He

whore this outfit when he trained in the fire nation and when he

created his Space Sword. The prices for these costumes vary

considerably so you will have to choose which is best for you and

your budget.

Ok, now we are getting somewhere. General Iroh is like the Mr

. Miyagi of the series. He gives amazing advice to his nephew Zuko.

He’s also an absolute powerhouse and is a senior citizen you DO

NOT want to piss off. As I stated before he is known as the Dragon

of the west. Oddly enough, this title actually has a matching

costume. I’m telling you, this guy is amazing, and they should

make a spinoff of just him. RIP General Iroh.

General Irohs cosplay is one of my favorite cosplays because it

just flows and looks so classy. It is great for us older cosplayers with

a few extra pounds. This cosplay will only set you back about $65

dollars and will definitely gain my attention at conventions if not

other photographers.  I’ve always wanted to do a photoshoot with

him spitting fire rather than photoshopping it in. Nothing like

creating the effect in real life.

Last but not least we have Zuko’s prodigy sister, Azula. She

literally excels at everything that Zuko struggles with. Fire

bending, lighting bending, leading you name it and odds are Azula

is better at it. I honestly believe it was her own arrogance and lack

of self-control that caused Azula’sdemise. Well, that and a bit of

pen magic from the creators. Eventually, Azulais betrayed by her

crew ultimately showing she is both a terrible friend and leader.

Interesting fact, Azulas fire burns blue instead of red/orange in

order to demonstrate her mastery over both fire bending and

lightening bending. She is also the only woman in the series

demonstrating the capabilities of lightning bending. Definitely a

feat worthy of noting. Her cosplay costume is gorgeous and

actually relatively inexpensive. Her costume and boots will only

cost you about $137 dollars. Mix in some 3d printed headpieces for

added detail and you’re good to go.

Bonus Kyoshi Warriors

You know I couldn’t end this article without throwing in the Kyoshi

Warriors. These warriors were actually named after Avatar

Kyoshi. She established the order to protect her homeland and

oddly enough it was composed of all females. Each of them had a

very unique fighting style separate from the other. This is a great

cosplay to go with if you’re going to the con in a group. I believe

the outfits are gorgeous and with a bit of Photoshop magic will pair

nicely with a bamboo forest or castle background.

To add to this cosplay grab yourself a set of fans and swords to

complement the armor. I have only seen a handful of these

characters at a convention so you definitely wont fall into the

crowd with everyone else. As a photographer, its nice to see some

new cosplays. Not saying the common ones are not great, but you

can get tired of seeing the same costume over and over.

I hope you enjoyed my look at Avatar the Last Airbender cosplays.

Hopefully, some of you will actually grab a few of these cosplays

and implement them into your net con lineup. If you do, definitely

feel free to message me as I would love to not only see it but grab

some pics of it. Who knows, you may make it onto the front page of

the website 😉. Well, that’s going to be everything for today. Let me

know if I left anything out or if you would like a continuation of

this article in the form of Avatar Korra. Until next time, stay
