(edit 7/25/13: made into dA id)

Ever since i saw :icondapper-owl: and :iconsambees:'s Krew as gangsters drawing (fav.me/d41snrg) i had the need to cosplay it.

i finally found the time to do so but sadly, i lacked a Bolin, a Mako, and longer hair. SOOO photoshop fixed the rest.

i took up the courage and cosplayed all three characters with the help of finding clothes around the house and photoshop. YES ALL THREE PEOPLE ARE ME.

how i pulled it off:

:bulletblue:Korra:
i was in the process of making a korra cosplay so i took the hair ornaments and put them on. i then grabbed the fedora hat i bought a few weeks earlier and placed a light blue belt around it as the blue ribbon. then i put on my black dress shirt and adjusted it to fit korra's style. i added blue smokey eye on my eyelids and a light lip gloss.
on photoshop, i gave myself photoshop "plastic surgery" to narrow my jawline and chin even more than it already is. i increased my eye size just a little bit so the blue photoshopped eyecolor pops out. because my hair is too short for korra (it barely touches my collar bone, although it is the right color), i added hairstrokes and length. then i fixed the colored stripes on the shirt.

:bulletgreen: Bolin:
i took my dad's black suit jacket (that's wayyyyy too big for me, way too big for him too) and his white dress shirt. grabbed my own black tie and kept the blue belt on the hat but flipped it inside out. i tied my hair all the way to the side and behind my head. i used makeup remover to take off the blue eyeshadow, then used black eyeshadow to increase the size of my eyebrows.
on photoshop, i gave myself "plastic surgery" again, making my jawline more masculine and angular. also rounding out my nose and thinning my lips. i changed the color of the blue belt to light green and painted in the piece of hair Bolin has out. i tried to make my fingers more stubby like a male's hand. my eyes have been enlarged and greenified.

:bulletred: Mako:
i used my gray peacoat and found a piece of red silk fabric and used it as his scarf. i had a smaller left over piece of red fabric and tied it around the hat. i changed the shape of my eyebrow to fit Mako's. left my hair tied behind my head.
on photoshopped, "plastic surgery" again but thinned my nose, angled it more. pushed in my cheeks and changed the angle of my jawline and chin. added a bit of red overlay onto my gray peacoat. made my eyes slightly more angled and pulled out. changed the color to golden.
________________________________________________

hope u guys enjoyed this mini photoshopped cosplay.
be sure to take a look at :icondapper-owl:'s drawing.
i hope someday i can do this again but with real people, not just by myself.

This is the second time I'm looking at this picture, and I just now realized they're all you @_@ I thought you were all siblings or something originally...haha ^^;

hahaaha nope!
they are all me.
it be quite insane to have siblings look exactly like the other. (unless theyre triplets but thats a different issue).

This is amazing. You are a very versitile cosplayer and you work wonders in photoshop. I could not believe my eyes when this showed up in my inbox. You did an amazing job making this look like the original picture.
My only complaint is the angle of Korra's jaw. It is a little unnatural looking. Try moving it to the left some rainy day. Either way, this still looks amazing. You did a wonderful job.

zutaraxmylove Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2012  Student Filmographer
the left near where the chin meets the shirt collar?
it couldve been the angle that the picture was originally taken.
but yes i see what u mean.

Yes, that is what I was talking about.

I figured that was the case. I just thought that I should mention it.

It is still a wonderful cosplay. OTL It's in my faves.

ahh ok ok.
i'll be sure to check my angles again next time.
i kinda lost my working file in the process so perhaps i'll check for a new project.

thanks~

Of course, any time ^^
