Asami’s Formal Dress from Legend of Korra

Asami (voiced by Seychelle Gabriel) is probably the most mature and steady of Korra’s group. She carries herself with a sense of calm and collected poise that runs counter to the chaos the group so often experiences. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have her breaking point or that she doesn’t feel deeply for her people, and for Korra most of all.

Asami is fashion-forward and has several looks throughout the series. But her formal look is one of her most striking and it is one that can be replicated with just a little DIY. A high-collared sleeveless red gown can be altered with just a few snips at the neckline to create the keyhole in the chest and the curved angle of collar similar to Asami’s gown. Fabric Fusion will glue the seams down from the cut edges, creating a smooth finish in the area and preventing any runs or fraying. And it can be used to glue on a bow made of burgundy cord.

With that bit of DIY done, all you need is a long brown wig, gold decorative hair clips, stacked gold bracelets, and vintage-style black heels.

Asami Sato from Legend of Korra

Asami Sato is a major character in Nickelodeon’s Legend of Korra, the continuation of Avatar: The Last Airbender. We’re first introduced to Asami after she hits Mako with her motorbike. They quickly get into a relationship, which upsets Korra, because she had a crush on Mako.  On their date,  it’s revealed that Asami is the daughter of Hiroshi Sato, the wealthy inventor of motorbikes. While Asami is a non-bender, she joins Team Avatar to defeat Amon. This proves an emotional struggle because she must betray her father. Upon his sacrificial death, she takes over the company, starting a  career in business and industrialization as the CEO of Future Industries. At the end of the series, Asami begins a relationship with Korra.

Korra

In the Legend of Korra, Korra is the latest incarnation of the Avatar, a semi-divine being capable of bending all four elements of nature, though she is originally a waterbender. She’s also headstrong and not one to shy away from a good fight.
