Bloggaday 69 – A Missed Commentary on Aang, Katara, and Sokka - ACC
Due to Poster error, this didn’t posted for Bloggaday 53, so here’s a really late commentation on the 3 of the Gaang
With the two-post rundown of the Fire Nation, I start with more depth into the Gaang. In this post, I’ll go through Aang, Katara and Sokka. The next of this chain of Bloggadays will be Toph, Suki, Smeller Bee, and the Cabbage Merchant.
For my selections of Aang, I actually chose 3 white cosplayers. I wonder is anyone will protest my cast? I actually had some ethnic diversity, but I made a last minute switch. It’s a real shame; I liked the other person I had too. Meh, maybe next time.
Honestly, I can see him playing Aang. Better than the others me thinks. Seems to have it down. If you’re a fan of Naruto, that’s like half of his gallery. Also seems to pull the crossplaying thing off rather well.
I’m not sure why, but he’s also one of my favorite Avatar Cosplays I’ve seen. Pulls off timid and warrior monk rather spectacularly
Reminds me of Fishbone’s Sokka. Very quirky and more than a little exuberant. I am currently thinking about creating three videos and breaking my cast into three sets. I imagine those two being in the same cast.
I think I found some very good cosplayers for Katara.
“Sassy Katara?” I’m not really too sure to say about her. I think I got a full Katara snapshot with each of the cosplayers I chose
My favorite Katara for *cough* Bloggaday 23 *cough* original reasons. But on a serious note, I think the production value in the outfits is some of the best I’ve seen. Some of the pictures do seem to be a bit touched up though, so that might be helping making them pop.
One last not, I am very sad I couldn’t find the Aang in this picture http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2187680/ . While I don’t think it was that Toph, I saw another picture with the pair of them with a Toph that I probably would have added.
Strikes me as “Motherly Katara.” But again, I think any three of these Kataras are stand alones that encompass the character rather well. /\ was the third-string though, replacing someone else in the last minute.
I went with a serious, wacky, and a funny Sokka.
The Irvinator (Chris)
This is the serious, or “Battle Sokka” as I am currently referring him as. I found a few Sokkas decked out in armor, but this was by quite a bit my favorite. Really good construction, great cosplayer, and an excellent shoot.
This is the Sokka I was referring to with the earlier Aang. Seems to be a rather wacky and off-the-wall character. I mean, look at the gallery that recreates the tent scene. That’s just good clean, well I don’t know about clean intentions, but fun. If I ever go to a convention, this is the Sokka I would want to meet.
With serious and wacky off the list, that leaves funny. The straighter comic relief Sokka.”
??? I know I’ve come across more stuff of this guy, but I don’t have it anywhere. He also did a Kyoshi Warrior Sokka. I don’t know who he is, so I didn’t contact him. Emoticon me is sad again. ;.-(
