[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

NOTE: Costumes and photos are not up for critique at this time. Keep DA cool and respect the request of all artists involved in this submission!

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.
