Habanera. by cupcake-rufflebutt Habanera. by cupcake-rufflebutt
Character: "Fire Nation" Suki from Avatar: The Last Airbender
Seamstress/Model: Tess [cupcake-rufflebutt]
Photography/Editing: Nicole [cyberbird]
Location: Katsucon 2010

Construction Notes:
Among the perks of the Gaylord: A veritable rainforest (yes, that greenery is real) in the middle of February! We had a lot of fun playing up the scenery, since I don't think this costume will ever see tropical flora again. After being mistaken for Azula a multitude of times at Otakon, I added a cheapie gold-painted fan to the costume. (Please ignore the inaccuracy; whenever I tackle Kyoshi Warrior Suki, I'll invest more time into making accurate fans.) Regardless, I still get mistaken for Azula twice as often as Suki. Maybe this means I should cosplay Azula? ^__^; For full construction notes on this costume, please see my previous uploads.

yay, Suki! Looks amazing.

Part of me does want to see an Azula cosplay. I haven't seen too many of them.

Thank you! I'm sure that one day I will do Azula, as I really enjoyed her character development in the last few episodes.

Wow, this photo is really...cool isn't right, but I'm at a loss for better words. At first glance of the thumbnail I thought it might be a drawing based on a photo of you because of the interplay of the light. I don't know how to describe it, but I know I like this. A lot. More than a lot of your work, and as you know I love most of your stuff in general! I'll stop rambling now...lol.

Thanks! The photographer told me the lighting was a fluke, but we both liked the misty effect it gave the shot.

Hahah, I hated Azula until the last few episodes, when her character development went through the roof. I have to admit she's one of my favourites now.

Oh you are so damn cute. And who doesn't know that Azula has the poop bun on her head and isn't nearly this pretty? *___*

Probably the same people who asked me, "When does Suki wear Fire Nation clothes?" :C

To be completely honest, I don't remember at this point! Probably from a random eBay seller, because I remember searching a long time to find the correct colour, which means it wasn't at any of my normal haunts (Amphigory, Cosworx, and a few larger wig stores on eBay).

Oh goodness, This is the perfect picture of Suki! I didn't even think of the flora in the Gaylord for a Avatar shoot...now I'm kicking myself for it. You're perfect!
