So, do you remember that Azula firebending skit
I did at Manifest? Well, here's the skit that that was a mere warm up for!
Needless to say a lot of work went in to choreographing, voice recording and practising this skit! We spent around two months putting the combat part together.
Unfortunately, the lighting was far from ideal. I'm not sure whose idea it was to have glaring back lighting AND a smoke machine, so when they turned the lights down even further than we asked them to, it was really bad combination for videoing. There's another video just of the fight scene where it's easier to see what's going on in the fight scene here: [link]
The lights that we used are Flowlights, a kind of LED glow poi. Specifically, Fire, Air and Water 2. It was really convenient how my favorite kind of poi are element themed.
A few other neat points about the group:
actually shaved her head for this
's first cosplay!
and I have both practised poi for a few years, but
learned to swing poi in a few months for this skit!
very kindly jumped in to be Toph for us at the last minute when our other Toph cosplayer was unable to make it over for the convention.
-Drayke was making Sokka style wise cracks all day!
