riikkun said: Hi! Umm sorry for bugging you but I was wondering if you had any advice? I'm doing a Fire Nation Toph (from Avatar the Last Airbender) cosplay. I'm pretty much done except I kinda saved the wig for last minute ^^* which is entirely my fault, but I looked up tutorials for it and most of them say I should use upholstery foam. I went to the store to try and get some but it's really expensive 0_o so umm I guess I was just wondering if you had any advice on how to make a good last minute wig...

You can always make a little pillow in the shape you need and just stuff it with batting. We did something similar a few years back for a friend’s last minute Toph wig, actually. lol

This is the original poster, guys! Idk why Suki is missing from all those other pictures. ;P
In all seriousness, my photoshop skills aren’t what they used to be… Dx

I’ve made a separate image with just Suki since I’ve been asked a lot to do it for graphics or whatever.

I’ve also put together this crappy side-by-side for the people saying I didn’t change Suki’s face/height/face/whatever at all. I left her in the KW uniform because it’s a uniform and those things tend to stay pretty much the same for a while, and I’m pretty sure the characters are only about 10-15 years older in the image, so… yeah//excuse.

beeftony:

Toph’s blindness was one of the most excellently handled aspects of AtLA because it wasn’t treated like a disability. So often in shows (and especially children’s animation) disabled characters are limited to apperances in “very special episodes” where the main characters have to learn a lesson that these people are capable “in spite of” their handicaps, like that episode of Kim Possible wherein Kim constantly stumbles over herself around Felix. This approach is often just as insulting as making them the butt of jokes, because it’s patronizing and it limits the amount of roles disabled characters are allowed to have.

Avatar challenged that stereotype with Teo, and then sent a giant middle finger its way by introducing Toph. She’s turned what would otherwise be a disability into an advantage, and she’s not afraid to crack jokes about it. She functions well enough that the other characters often forget that she is blind, but at the same time it’s an integral part of her bending and allows her to be the greatest earthbender ever. It sends a powerful message that having a physical disability does not make you less of a person, and often affords you a unique perspective that the so-called “normal” people never get to experience.

One of the many reasons I love this show.

Whenever I do ANYTHING in photoshop, I swear I go back and edit a million little details after I submit it. I think I finally got this to where I want it. Also, I can’t exactly move the map in the background, but I added back the “Old Friends” title. xD Maybe that helps a bit??

Finished felty sets. Still trying to improve work on small details… I’m not too good with making small things. :X These are about 3”-4” big.

edit-

I just realized I didn’t glue down one of Korra’s hair thingies. xDD Fixed it. But older reblogs wont have it. LOL I’m surprised no one pointed it out.
