NYCC 2009

New York comicon has come and gone, and I've sadly missed it. yaytime participated in a panel about comics online, which sparked this very interesting journal entry:
http://yaytime.livejournal.com/140446.html

I also missed all the cosplayer, including...



Zhao surrounded

A Water Tribe Zhao? Ha ha! He stole Sokka's coat and seems to be gloating about it (Toph seems to be knocked out there). That, or he's cold.

Zhao of the Water Tribe

I do believe this is the first time I've seen a finished Zhao cosplay. Awesome!
Pictures from the nick-mag lj entry, click the link to see more fun cosplay.

Zhao and Sokka

Zhao and Sokka seem to be buddies again (that, or it's a few moments before Zhao takes Sokka's coat away)
Thank you ingenuethereal for the link for that pic.



In non avatar related subjects, this add from last year started running again on canadian television and is still cracking me up.

HAH, I saw the Zhao at NYCC and thought of you! I see that Sokka at a bunch of cons around the east coast, he's a real nice dude. :D

He is! He stepped in to do line control at last year's NYCC Avatar panels -- a very nice young man, indeed ;3

I'm just glad that Zhao was so cooperative! <3

We all had a little Watertribe fangirling circle in your honor, of course ;3

Ha ha, so it's good that Zhao was behaving correctly. Who knew he could. ( I do believe that the Zhao and Sokka cosplayer are brother...I think I read that somewhere).
Awwwww, thank you guys!

With real sideburns too!
(maybe we could make one of these the cam for the noselfcontrol club...after asking permission to use it, of course)

I'm so sad I missed the photoshoot this year! I was home making some last minute costume adjustments (I had some sewing setbacks Friday night XP) and couldn't make it in time.


That Zhao was an awesome guy. He is Sokka's brother(?) I believe, and I hung out with that whole group a bunch at NYAF and last year's NYCC. Awesome bunch, the lot of them.

I'm a little sad I didn't do any Avatar cosplaying this year. I missed it! Though running around as Harley Quinn was pretty darn fun too. XD

You were missed! I had such a good time talking to you last year. Though hopefully I'm making it out to SDCC this summer.

Can't do Avatar every year, right? Glad to hear you had fun going around as Harley.
Yes, that Zhao is Sokka's brother. I don't know if he was around last year (Sokka was).
Hopefully see you at SDCC this summer then!

Zhao.. complete with the Moon Spirit. :D It was perfect and he definitely dressed with the parka for the Zhaoka look in your honor!
rufftoon

Easy to carry moon spirit in a bag too!
Awww, I am truly honored he took the time to cosplay Water Tribe Zhao. <333 That is awesome.

His sideburns are natural- that's pretty awesome right there.

<3 on the Zhao cosplayer <3

I can't give a decent description on how happy I am. Zhao needs more cosplay love! <3
rufftoon
Feb. 13th, 2009 05:25 pm (UTC)
I can only agree with you. It's already pretty damn awesome that there's at least one, after all these years (came in last, after the hippies, the swamp guys, the cabbage man...)

also ahah cosplay Pretty Darn Awesome. So if Zhao were to attend a cosplay who would he dress up as? hee

That commercial belongs to everyone. Post away!
As for your question, "if Zhao were to attend a cosplay who would he dress up as?", I believe Go-Devil-Dante answered that on DA:

The best part of that cosplay is that it's real side burns.

Yup! 100% genuine facial hair.
