ATLA: A Girl and a Warrior by StarsOfCASSiOPEiA ATLA: A Girl and a Warrior by StarsOfCASSiOPEiA
I am a warrior. But I'm a girl, too. ~ Suki, A:TLA

More on Tumblr!: [link]

Old photo (Otakon 2011), but I'm trying to get back into the swing of regular uploads and just cosplaying more in general.

Gosh I just love this hobby. So many amazing memories, so many amazing people! :heart:

Nice job! I like the slightly aged look some of the armour/fan has.

Thank you! :heart: Some of that was intentional, and some of it was me just running around in it/doing crazy things for photos, ahahaha.

If that's the same picture as in your coscom avatar I've actually been wondering; how did you get that effect on the armour? It looks very convincing.

It is the same photo, yes. :)

Most people think I used leather for the armour, which is actually really off. This is craft foam (Like this: [link]), which was patterned into strips to make my armour. The pieces were attached with glue and sealed with it as well.

I started with a brown colour foam (like the one in the example photo), and added shadows/wear with a combination of black and brown shoe polish. It was the more waxy kind, that goes on with a really stiff brush.

Tedious for sure, but so worth it! The whole armour was maybe $20 to make total?

Anytime! :D Just make sure you do that shoe polish stuff before you seal it at all, or it won't stay/will just tear up the seal.
