I’m the Avatar, deal with it: Korra Cosplay Gallery (Book 4)

Looking back on 2015 (now two years ago!), Korra was a big part of my year .

Characters like Buffy and Jean Gray were superpowered leaders that inspired me when I was younger. I didn’t look like them and I did not activiely dwell on that thought. But when Korra came into my life, I realized how much I craved a hero who resembled me

I feel comfortable in this costume and not just because it is made of soft stretch fabrics. Korra is a character I am proud to impersonate. I feel strong when I cosplay the Avatar.

The Avatar Universe lends itself well to group cosplays and that is a large part of the appeal. I got to hang out with my friends at Emerald City. Cosplay is great with friends!

Korra had a broad following and it is great to meet other cosplayers. 🙂

But mostly I like feeling strong and capable.
