I'M THE AVATAR -Legend of Korra- by StarDustShadow I'M THE AVATAR -Legend of Korra- by StarDustShadow
I'M THE AVATAR, YOU GOTTA DEAL WITH IT!

AHHHHHH I'm so happy. I love LoK (obviously), and I had a blast cosplaying Korra. I've loved her from the first second I saw her, and she's just so strong and brave and wonderful *GUSH*

I definitely plan on doing more of her outfits (jacket, season 2 shirt, etc).

The costume was completely made by me, as was the wig styling. For such a simple costume, there sure were some details that were a pain in the ass. But overall I'm really really happy! 8D

I plan on cosplaying korra for an upcoming con, any tips AT ALL that you could give me on how you made/where you got your shirt.

I made my shirt. I based it loosely off of a Chinese style shirt pattern, but altered it quite a lot. The fabric I believe is a light stretch cotton, because I didn't want it to be so stretchy it didn't have structure on it's own. The sleeve holes, honestly, were HARD to get the cut/shape just right (way harder than I thought it was going to be ;A; ), a lot of trying it on, pinning/drawing new lines, careful cutting, repeat like 5 times.

The white around the armholes is just bias tape. There's a small zipper in the back, and the collar has white piping along the edges.

Hope this info helps some? :3

If they ever decide to make a Legend of Korra movie, you should definitely try out for the part of Korra.

M. Night really does have no business messing up the greatest show ever. I can't believe my parents liked that movie. I found it so horrible that I blanked it from my memory.

Holy crow You're gorgeous! What a fantastic wig! I thought it was your natural hair at first glance.. and your skin is super pretty tan! :D

How in the world did you make that collar for the shirt? its flawless! :D

;A; Ahhhhhh thank you so much! That makes me feel so great :heart:

I just patterned out a collar in kind of a Chinese style (I winged it a bit), added lining and interfacing, and used white piping for the edges to give it a bit more of a 3D look, I ended up liking the effect more than using interfacing :D

Great job with the costume! ^_^ I love your face but I swear Korra's bangs are a little shorter than her ponytail, it could just be me but I don't really care! :P

I think you're right, her side things should be a bit shorter, it wasn't until I saw photos of it that I realized they needed even more trimming D:! I'll just have to get it all fixed up for next time :heart:

Your very welcome hun! :D

I've seen the anime version of Korra and if I remember her side bangs are shorter, like the length of her shoulder or shorter but besides the hair confusion you did really great on the costume! And you make an adorable Korra! :D

Very nicely done! May I ask what you used for the tan?
Reply
:iconstardustshadow:
StarDustShadow Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thank you so much! 8D

The tan is half makeup, half going out to have some fun this summer lol. I was at the beach the weekend before which gave me some last minute colour (I tan fairly easily), but of course my skin needed to be evened out/tinted a tiny bit so I used Ben Nye Color Cake Foundation in PC-11 Tan #2. I ended up using a bajillion layers of Final Seal on it so it didn't rub off on anything (99% effective, still got a bit on my shirt, oh well!)

Hope that helps
