Otakon 2012 - Legend of Korra | Korra by elysiagriffin Otakon 2012 - Legend of Korra | Korra by elysiagriffin
** Thankyou everyone for all the positive feedback on this image! I had a great time collaborating with Stephanie to create this image while braving the Baltimore heat and crowds of people.

Any comments regarding inaccuracy of character portrayal by skin tone will be removed. The cosplayer did take the extra step to tan her skin using body makeup. Of course, body makeup can only last so long in the heat and we worked with what we had. :)

Cosplay is a fun, creative outlet that everyone can enjoy regardless of race, body type, gender, ect. There are no rules that state a person is only allowed to cosplay certain characters because of physical limitations. Its all about having fun and being proud of the finished product that you spend hours putting your heart into. **

I wrote that you're very good photographer and have good models, but I think also, you live in USA. There are really more interesting places than in Poland for example and are free I think. If I'm wrong please correct me.

I love this shot! She is so pretty; her face almost looks like a procelin doll.

Wish I could have gone to Otakon this year. It's just such a long drive that it was too much cost in gas.

This comment may be removed, as it falls under "regarding inaccuracy of character portrayal by skin tone" but I wanted to note that while it is very important to me to have the fact that Korra is a person of color acknowledged and represented--Due to the disproportionate amount of white representation in popular and especially children's media, and that it is consequently so important, from a racial politics perspective, to have approachable, popular, well-developed characters of color like Korra, Katara and the rest of the (Asian) avatar cast--I believe you were right not to "tan" your model. False skin tones is far too reminiscent of blackface to be an appropriate solution. If racial accuracy was the chief concern, no one should play Katara or Korra that isn't of inuit decent... Which, obviously, excludes quite a bit of her fanbase. One of the beautiful things about this show is how widely it is loved (and from a racial politics perspective: how many people of different races are identifying with a non-white character). Cosplay is one of the ways in which fans show their love, and I believe anyone should be able to without being shut down, regardless of the inaccuracies. I've seen some awesome female zuko's, black Toph's, human momo's you name it.

That said, I have zero tolerance to people trying to deny that Korra and other water-tribe characters are not of-color, or that the avatar cast is not all Asian. Nor do I have much patience for white-washed art. You can find the color brown in your crayon-boxes, people; there really are no excuses there. Do not even get me started on M. Night Shyamalan's casting.

i have a question, my knowledge on cosplay is few so excuse me if i may something that is incorrect. is it ok to cosplay something like avatar korra or aang or young justice or any hit cartoon series which isn't anime in an anime or otakon event?

While there are conventions that specialize in certain areas (sci-fi, comic books, ect), there is no restrictions as to what you can cosplay :)
I do know that there are some conventions that hold costume contests that only allow cosplays from Japanese series to enter.

well people dress up like homestuck and doctor who characters and those aren't anime so apparently it's perfectly fine. I even saw a sherlock holmes cosplay at the last anime event I went to.
