So I realized that all of my posts of my costumes were reblogs of photosets that included other costumes I did not make, and I really want to keep my blog concise with just my work and no reblogs, so I deleted those, and here is a single post with pictures of all my Avatar cosplays. I kind of miss making costumes like this.
The Suki and Azula costumes were photographed by my awesome friend Ben
The first Yue picture was by the amazing Tony Quan
Second Yue by the wonderful Abbot W.
One thing I really LOVE about Katara is that she’s a woman who really OWNS her anger.
Like, girls are taught to never get angry. Never be rude. Don’t yell. It makes you unlikable. It’s not lady-like.
And Katara just says fuck you to that. She’s sweet, and mothering, and caring, and nurturing almost all the time. But when she’s angry? She’s ANGRY. And she OWNS it.
She yells at people, she threatens people. Sometimes she’s vain and jealous on top of it all too, and she owns up to that. It takes a special kind of courage and strength to look someone in the eye and honest to god YELL at them.
Especially the fight above. Paku is an elder, a man in charge. He’s in a privileged position of power over her. And Katara doesn’t take that shit anyway.
God damn A+ Female empowerment right there.
Katara is a nurturing fighter
THIS IS WHY I LOVE HER
Breath. Light. Time. Space.
Years ago, four kids lived in a state of peace. But on April 13th, 2009, a universe creating game was put into motion. Only these players that risked their life and limb could tilt the scale of fate, however, anarchist Jack Noir corrupted the chances of success.
It’s been a long time coming and we’ve come across awesome heroes, many strong in their own right. Albeit these noble advocates have unparalleled powers, their worst foe is awakening in the throes of darkness. But somehow, they will be the saviors of the waking world.
OH MY GOD WOW
I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS.
alley oop! thanks karkat for keeping your shoulders so stiff for me, it really helps me dodge these pesky fireballs!
STOP DANCING AROUND LIKE SOME PESKY LITTLE FAIRY WAITING TO BE SWATTED AWAY MERCILESSLY BY MY SWIFT AND UNRELENTING HAND AND FIGHT ME LIKE A REAL BENDER!
aaaaaaaand whoosh goes the fireball.
Bender Battle Round 4: Karkat VS John
As I said before, this vote was a close 4-way tie! The other top picks were Vriska VS Tavros, Kanaya VS Rose, and Nepeta VS Equius. Since John was handily the most mentioned bender, the tie was broken in favor of the winning matchup.
THIS. IS. FLAWLESS.
In Honor of Avatar Kyoshi
“Only justice will bring peace.”
she’s so right! i don’t think it’s coincidental that the fandom has this weird conception of her as extra bloodthirsty, when she is a supremely powerful woman who understands and acts upon the concept “no justice, no peace.” a lot less palatable to mainstream liberals than a light-skinned male pacifist…
love aang, but i’m team kiyoshi, every day.
