ATLA: Dangerous Lady by MangoSirene ATLA: Dangerous Lady by MangoSirene
“Underestimating Ty Lee as just another pretty face is one of the last things you’ll do.”

~

Full-body shot of my remade Ty Lee cosplay! :D Since I've already made her outfit before, I decided to do a more "realistic/ornamental" interpretation of her design this time around. So there are tons of little details and changes that I've added, all from my own noggin.

There are over 500 beads on this costume right now, and I'm planning to add even more before ColossalCon~!

I really, really love cosplaying Ty Lee, she's my absolute favorite character from the Avatar universe. What's even better is that I don't have to act "in-character" for her because I already act like her anyways! I'm hoping I can get some photos of me putting my yoga skills to use - but I'm not sure how flexible the costume will be and I'm sort of scared of breaking anything, especially the wig. ;3; So... we'll see! (If not, that's what her beach version is for, right~?)

More info on the costume is here: [link]
If you have any questions please feel free to ask~! :D

I'm not sure how to describe them, I'm sorry! I found all of the fabrics by searching for things like "dusty pink" and "dark burgundy." ^^;

I ran into your stuff while looking for cosplay tutorials on you tube, and ended up watching your video on making this wig! It looks amazing and so does the costume!!! I hope I'm as good as you one day.

Not to steal focus but I am also going to post this with full credits on CosplayRoyalty.tumblr.com because it is easily the most intricate Ty Lee cosplay I have yet to see. Keep up the great work.

Very nice! did you make the whole costume by yourself, or did you bring together pre-created parts? wither way, the effect is amazing, it looks very legitimate, and the hair and outfit is pretty much spot-on. Nice photography and pose, too. maybe you could try some chi blocking poses-maybe you could make a chi-blocking gif by compiling some photos of you chi blocking, or by recording yourself chi-blocking and converting it to gif form. either way, that would be really neat! great work! <3

I made the entire costume (including the wig) myself, the only thing purchased pre-made were the shoes. :) Thank you so much for all the compliments! I'll be sure to do more chi-blocking photos when I wear this costume again!

She/You are so awesome.
Feels like her in the motion of the pose.
Also those sort of shoes are my favorite when I am fighting bad guys.
Tender yet good on the feet.

So incredibly amazing, love so much!! :love: I'm seriously tempted to try to draw this on my 3DS with the painting app on there ^^ though seriously unsure if it'll turn out great yet though, still quite the newbie to digital art ^^;

Also...
You + Beach version + Yoga = Me dead from the loss of blood to my brain from the thought :faint: xD

By all means, go for it! xD

And I'm hoping the wig would hold up to some yoga, it didn't budge much at ACEN but there's a part of me that's so worried of falling on it if I accidentally lose my balance. @_@
