One of the neat things about being the lead designer of a show like Young Justice is getting to interact with the fans through sites like this one, seeing the awesome fan art you guys do is a big inspiration for myself and a lot of the other artists and writers on the show. It really keeps us motivated knowing that you guys and girls appreciate the characters and stories we are creating. Along with great art my other favorite aspect of fandom, and easily the most hardcore representation of it, is the cosplayers and their dedication to show accurate costumes. So with SDCC right around the corner I thought I would share a little something interesting with all you Legend of Korra fans out there, as well as cosplayers in general. Last year at around this time my good buddy, Joaquim 2-cents.deviantart.com/, who is a co-executive producer on Korra, asked my wife, she is a clothing designer by trade, to create a show accurate Korra outfit to be worn by the official model representing the show at SDCC 2011.
She worked with the show creators Mike and Bryan and the model to bring Korra to life for all the fans at last years con.  Anyway, the costume rocked and so did the panel, and I thought it would be neat to share her blog with those of you out there who digs the Korra.
Click the link for some behind the scenes making of the Korra outfit and stuff.

You should ask her to design a custom suit for you, eh? "Honey! Where's my super-suit?!"

And to be honest, I think your work including the team really inspires most of us to even sketch,doodle or even draw. It just gives us an extra push
