Bonds of Student and Sifu by Theelfinartist Bonds of Student and Sifu by Theelfinartist
I love Korra and Tenzin's relationship so much. He really feels like a father to her. Almost. (x It meant so much to have my own father cosplay Tenzin to go with my Korra. <3

I love it, because as my father and I were going through our photos from AkiCon, he asks me, "What can I do to look more like Tenzin?" He really wants to get this character right! I don't think he's ever asked me how he can enhance his own cosplay before.

The Legend of Korra has such a special place in my family and my hearts.

Also! The CMV will be uploaded soon! I finished editing it and got it all formatted. Just need to find the time to upload it to good ol' Youtube. :)

Korra cosplayed by: *Theelfinartist
Tenzin cosplayed by: My father

OHMY, thank you very much! I don't know what to say to that but thank you<3
Haha, I think that he fits Tenzin quite well too. Although, his personality doesn't quite fit up with Tenzin's as well as my mother's does with Lin. xD ♥

Should have it up by the end of this week! :)
