At the power plant by redirectLightning At the power plant by redirectLightning
Edit: 'Wow' doesn't quite say it. I've never gotten such positive feedback over a cosplay or so many favourites/shares. I ridiculously horrible at accepting compliments, so let me at least say 'Thank you!' to everyone who has taken the time to comment or add my cosplay to your favourites. It means a lot to me! There'll definitely be more to come soon, so stay tuned!

Edit 2: I was informed that I look like First Enchanter Orsino...and now I can't unsee it @___@

My debut as Mako from the new Avatar series 'Avatar: The Legend of Korra'.

First worn at Phoenix Comicon '12 alongside my friend who was cosplaying as (a ridiculously awesome and accurate) Bolin. A lot of work was put into making the costume--and though the eyes were photoshopped gold ( I can't wear contacts D: ) the eyebrows are aaaaaaalll me lol. A little plucking can go a long way. Definitely my favourite cosplay to date. Had sooo much fun.

The picture was taken and photoshopped by the lovely :iconwingheart:. We were taking a break for coffee outside of the convention center when she saw the grates and decided to take a photo op. More to come from her!

Thanks! And no that's all photoshop. My eyes are super sensitive so unfortunately I can't wear contacts =[ mega bummer, too, since it removes that extra bit from cosplay.

Ha! Thanks. It was definitely the first time I had ever plucked my eyebrows for a costume so it was...an interesting experience xD. It's kinda hard to not want to now though o.o they're a little crazy now that I really look at them.

& you're really handsome too U//v//U

That's quite a compliment, thank you! For both of them :iconhandsomeonionplz: And yeah xD I can't say I've plucked my eyebrows all that often. I'm just lucky it didn't go horribly wrong and end up looking like someone drew a maze in my eyebrows xD.

Did you play the game? I fucking LOVE Orsino.
Reply

redirectLightning Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah I just totally never saw a similarity xD Orsino was pretty bad ass, though. He was a walking antithesis for what Meredith kept saying the mages were. Sucks that he lost it in the end, but I guess at that point it was all cards on the table or just lay down and die.

Rosenbraut Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2012
Orsino is SMEXY HEXY. *lol*
I think he and Meredith were equally insane. Orsino supported necromancy (WHAT THE F*CK? Assh*le!)and Meredith used a Lyrium Sword with which she wanted to kill each mage alive. lol. Batshit crazy bitches. Both of them.

Thank you!! The pattern actually started out as a civil war jacket. Just modified it to look like Mako's.

I really love your cosplay! I do have a question though, if you could get back to me when you can?
My boyfriend wants to cosplay Mako as well and I have most of the cosplay planned out for him, except for the feet where he wears those almost tube sock looking things. Could you point me in the right direction what you modified them from? Or did you make them from scratch? I hope to hear from you soon! :)

hopefully I won't be smothered in my sleep for giving away the secret, but they're stockings. I don't know if he ended up buying women's stockings or men's socks, but they're just super opaque. You can find stockings like that at most department stores.

Yup he already got back to me. But thank you anyways for your feedback since I'm sure there are more people out there that wonder the same thing. [Or am I really that clueless that I'm the only one?] XD
