"That lady is my hero." I loved Lin Beifong from the moment she appeared on my TV screen in episode one of The Legend of Korra, but I never expected that love to grow the way it did. This lady is one of the best ladies I have ever seen on my TV; I adore her. When Lin made her sacrifice in "Turning the Tides" I knew she was the one I would be cosplaying.
I'm very lucky to have a friend in Rachel Bishop who spent tireless hours on this costume, from things like making a duct-tape cast of my body, to sewing, to the architecture of Lin's armor. I can't thank her enough for basically making a dream come true for me. This was a huge undertaking and everyone should go and tell her she is amazing.
I'm proud to say I had some new experiences when it came to this costume as well! I dyed a wig for the first time which was completely terrifying, but the results were perfection. I get some major pride every time someone tells me how perfect the wig is. I also did trauma make-up for the first time, making Lin's facial scars. Another scary thing since I can hardly manage normal make-up! But I am so thrilled to cosplay Lin and so proud and excited. This lady, you guys. She's my hero.
