Cosplay of the Day: Her Name Is Toph, Though It Sounds Like ToughJohn Llewellyn Martin |
If you've ever seen 'Avatar: The Last Airbender,' then chances are you're probably a fan of Toph Beifong, the blind earthbender who's a little rough around the edges, despite being from an aristocratic family. If so, then feast your eyes on this spot-on cosplay!
TophWei is a Russian cosplayer whose cosplay alias is even fashioned after the character's name. Couple that with the fact that she looks almost exactly like Toph, and you've got one high-quality cosplay on your hands.
In the animated show that aired on Nickelodeon, Toph became Aang's earthbending teacher in order to help him master all four of the bending elements. Because she was blind, Toph was more in-tune with the earth and could sense vibrations by using her feet.
This outfit is from her time in the Fire Nation, where she had to blend in and look like an ordinary citizen. Most impressive here is the way TophWei has perfectly recreated Toph's hair. With all of the components together, she looks like she stepped right out of the small screen!
