Zuko Scar Tutorial [Jan. 15th, 2009|09:53 pm]

Hey guys, sorry for the delay! Here is the scar tutorial I promised a few months ago. BTW, take from this what you want. Play with the techniques, add your own flair. I just put this together because once in awhile I get a message asking how I made my scar, and it's a lot easier to explain with pictures. But there's lots of ways to go about it, so experiment and do your thing!

Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any injuries that may occur when you make your scar. These are the steps I do on myself, but if you have sensitive eyes, you need to take that into account. If you are a minor, please check with your parents before taking painkillers, putting on greasy makeup or chemicals near your eyes. Got that? Cool.


Directions and lots of photos under the cutCollapse )


Thanks to my TakaraZUKO ladies for being demonstration models <3 and big, big love to slave_to_anime who took all these photos for us!

If you want to see the ridiculousness we got into wearing these costumes, it's here in this post.

The best thing I saw at AX 2008 [Jul. 8th, 2008|11:39 pm]

I missed my TakaraZUKO girls, who all skipped AX this year. I wasn't planning on going either, but ACP flashed it's batsignal and I ended up helping out with their Lucky Star and Ouran Host Club events (at the Bandai and Funimation booths). Within the first few hours of arriving, I was rewarded with this glorious sight...


Accompanied by chibi Appa, both so adorable <3


Turned out that inside the Appa suit was the girl we met last year at AX and SDCC in the non-chibi version of Appa. She seemed to remember us, and took off her head to give hugs and say hello. You 2 are awesome!

Introduction Post [Jun. 3rd, 2008|09:32 pm]

Hello, moriyama_umi here to share a few photos of my season 1 and season 2 Katara cosplay. I believe I am partially at fault for getting everyone in takarazuko into Avatar: The Last Airbender after cosplaying Katara for the first time in February 2006 at Wondercon.

+1 photo & costume details under the cutCollapse )

To my utter joy, several months later the rest of the ladies of takarazuko took an interest in Avatar after watching Season 2, which prompted me to make Season 2 Katara. [Click on photos for larger versions]

+3 photos and more costume details under the cutCollapse )

I've also made a S3 Fire Nation Katara, but that can wait for another post XD.

CostumeCon '08 [Apr. 28th, 2008|09:59 am]

We went mostly for the neat workshops and panels (historical costuming--it woos me!), but we did have a nice little Avatar quartet, so here are a couple pics courtesy of lionboogy!

Fire Nation Toph is adorably hard core! hoshikaji made the outfit for pikacello.

moriyama_umi is one hot Katara with a permanent good hair day.
