I'll be perfectly honest. I had a great deal of hesitation when I decided this costume as there are many factors working against me. For one, and most obvious; I'm blonde, fair, and freckled. Under the surface however I have both Inuit and Cherokee blood, so appearances really aren't everything. Secondly, many many people are cosplaying as Korra, so I decided my costume had to take it over the top.

I conceived the idea to make this costume as close as possible to something that might actually be worn in Korra's climate. I'm using as many natural materials as possible while keeping the costume's look ideal.

-The coat is wool, lined with suede. The collar is fox fur and the shoulder pieces are rabbit (both from antique and humane sources).

-The pants are custom dyed cotton.

-The boots are leather with shearling lining.

-The shirt is the only piece that goes off the mark, being stretch microsuede.

-The blue tabbard is wool, and brown piece is deer hide with rabbit fur trim.

I apologize if the use of leather and fur is offensive to some. I do not support the furrier industry and purchase all of my pelts second hand from reliable sources.
