The one good thing about winter? Snow for cosplay photos! I haven't really had the chance to get good shots of Book 2 Korra yet but we did snag a few down at Lethbridge Expo outside the gate to the Japanese Gardens.
The parka was the last thing to be made for this costume and it came together in a bit of a rush since I wanted it to be ready for this particular Con. I sort of closed my eyes and started sewing, hoping it would turn out okay, and it did (for once!). It's made of lighter weight wool and the same faux fur as the butt-flap. The white bands are done with cotton interlining because it was the only thing I had in the house at the time.
For a tutorial on how I made the boots, take a squint here: colonelliamross.deviantart.com…
For more WIP shots of the whole costume, I've got them up on my Facebook page here: www.facebook.com/teadrunktailo…
Currently lining up the new projects for 2014 and I thiiiiink a certain fire-bending asshole Admiral might end up on the list. Because sideburns. And because I'm jonesing for another extremely dudely costume.
Super-huge thanks to =qlippothnet
for the photos and for giving me posing advice! (Otherwise I pose like a derp...)
