[ASAMI SATO] Red White Blues in the Sky by Windaria [ASAMI SATO] Red White Blues in the Sky by Windaria
Money is the anthem of success
So put on mascara, and your party dress.


If you follow me on Tumblr (ambrosiakrys.tumblr.com/), you already know of all my undying love for Asami Sato and how she basically rescued my heart from the disaster that was LoK. I don't think I've ever connected as much with a fictional character as I did with Asami, and I admire her unconditionally for the insane amount of personal strength she exhibits despite enduring some really horrible things and horrible people.

This is the gown Asami wears in episode 4, which I decided to make when the weather on the east coast was hotter than the surface of the sun.  BFF Tina (turnonred.tumblr.com/) and I teamed up with our buddy Nicole Ciaramella (nicoleciaramella.com/) and took some photos on the beach in Sandy Hook.  In 100 degree weather.  Surrounded by tourists.  COSPLAY.

I've since sold this costume to the lovely Cattasticks!  Hope you're enjoying it, babe!

Costume made and worn by me

Krys I think you may be my spirit animal.... Asami is the strongest character and she just got SHAFTED in the writing. Right along with Bolin. I'm sure you and I could spend hours ranting about character development but I think it would all be in agreement. Beautiful, BEAUTIFUL cosplay. I'm so torn on which costume of hers to make and seeing this one done so well makes me all *_*

YES YES AND YES. I really feel weird hanging out with my friends who are HARDKORRA FANS and I'm like "buhhh i love you guys but i kind of hate everything that show stands for now" :( :( :(

At least the hours I spent investing myself in LoK still gave me Asami, who is the only Avatar-verse character I have ever really connected with on every possible level. Yay! Or something!

Thank you, hun! <3

You're welcome :3 And since I posted that last comment I've seen her Book 2 outfit and decided to go with the pilot gear and make my boyfriend be General Sexy II instead of Mako ;D Also if you wouldn't mind me asking, which wig did you use? I have one in mind from Arda but I'm not sure if it'll work well with her part and yours looks nice and full and natural.

Ps: This submission links to your tumblr and the two of us geek out over way too many of the same things. This could be dangerous ~_^<3

Durrhurr well don't worry, I still need to get my ass in gear and make her jumpsuity thing. The dress was just an excuse to get rid of all the red fabric I had lying around and not have to make stupid sleeves and pants because they are stupid.

Naw, but hoo boy she didn't miss much. I think she would have died of heatstroke and fangirls once she stepped out of the hotel wearing Amon, hahaha.

WELL HAY if you're willing to drive the 80 billion hours to the Outer Banks in NC, that's where we is right now! My mom's family rented a beach house that is so large it has a fucking ELEVATOR in it. Seriously I don't... I don't even know why a house needs to be this big. I've spent the entire day on the couch drinking wine and wishing I had friends here with me to dick around with. ;___;

But if you is around next weekend, I'll be moving into the new place! I won't be able to make it to Dave's BBQ because I'll be busy hauling furniture and suitcases, but if you want to swing by, you can sleep in the new place and maybe we can go to the beach on Sunday! :D

Oh my, is it ok to get such a beautiful dress wet like that?

I know a lot of people weren't happy with the crazy relationships in this season of Korra, but I trust that the creators will lead it somewhere interesting. I can't wait to see what Asami does next season!

Haha, it was totally fine! I made the dress from some costumey poly-blend fabric I found at JoAnn's, so when I got home, I just tossed the whole thing in the gentle cycle of my washing machine and it was as good as new the next day! If the dress were made of real silk, I wouldn't dare leave the building in it.

I'm hoping they do! I have a thousand issues with how this season was handled, and I really hope the boys don't let me down next time around!

I'll have to make a note of that if I ever take up costume makings... Don't want to create something that can only be worn once! ^_^

Well the next season will be much longer so the compression issue shouldn't be a problem anymore. I wonder when they'll announce the date...

YIKES, I know. I'm glad we did manage to get some nice shots of this costume when we did, because it was even more humid at Otakon and I only threw it on at night. ;__; Thank you for the kind words!
