Fan Vs Flame by os-cordis Fan Vs Flame by os-cordis
More from the Azula versus Suki series :)

Because Azula had to get Suki's outfit somehow, right??

Ever since ~little-match-girl started making her Suki outfit, we've been dying to get photos of her fighting against ~chrysocome's Azula. We've never really had a chance to do it (I've had to cosplay Toph instead) until recently at Melbourne Armageddon last month.

Even though the characters most central to the overall story in AtLA are male (Aang and Zuko, imho), the show is dominated by strong female characters (in all senses of the word). Here is our tribute to arguably (and feel free to do so, in the comments) the coolest and most badass girls of the show.

There are more photos to come. I had a lot of fun finally getting these shots (and enduring the random comments/staring from businesspeople walking down the street, stopping to watch us get into some rather awkward positions and having to hold them for extended periods). Extra props to ~ubercaledor for taking the photos, and super extra hugs to ~little-match-girl for getting into the outfit even though it took longer for her to get into it than the actual time spent at the convention. Thanks so much to both of you. I'm so glad we finally got these photos and I'm very happy with them.

Dear god, the Kiyoshi costume is amazing.
See, this is what they should've used for the movie.
Not (well crafted though, I must say) clothes they never wore in the actual show.

Thank you so much for the compliments.
I don't fault the movie for redesigning the costumes, after all it's not very creative for them to just literally translate everything from tv screen to movie screen when they have so much room to make elborate costumes. It was more the storyline and acting that let the whole thing down unfortunately.

Lengthy? A bit. Chore? Nope :D Stacks of fun and maniacal grinning the whole time. I love photo editing :) You should see the original of this - you'll find it on our facebook page - it's just us jumping around outside the convention centre, there's all this urban junk, our bags, cameras and props, and random people in the background. Haha this is so much better!

the kick itself looks a bit awkward as a pose but the fire totally makes up for it
Reply
:iconos-cordis:
os-cordis Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2011
Snap. :) I was waiting for someone to pick up on it. The trajectory of the kick is actually going the other way - in the direction that my upper body is turned already. But for aesthetics, the fire looked better going "backwards". Good pick :)
