I was debating whether to post these now or wait to see if we'd luck out getting some better shots of Asami later on in the series. I decided to just go for it. Asami is so awesome that if we wind up getting better shots of her in the future I would be more than happy to give her a second tribute.
Asami's boots have underwent a couple of different designs as the series progressed.
In season 1 her boots were very similar to Azula's. I think standard fire nation type of footwear. ^_^
Later on the series' designers changed her footwear opting for riding boots instead.
I actually like the second type of footwear more and thinks she looks hot wearing them.
Like with most boots, there's that sexy teasing element of imagining her feet underneath them and really looking forward to see her taking them off.
(These are a combination of caps from the Legend of Korra Season 1 episode 7 and the Season 3 Episode 8 with a dash of webfinds thrown in for good measure. Once again a special thanks to Blackviper and Atomic Chinchilla for the episode tip off and the mention of her. A big Thank you to the people working on the Legend of Korra series for fulfilling our dreams of getting to see their female characters barefoot as well)
I think that it is worth noting that Asami's has a particularly hot voice actress portraying her Seychelle Gabriel.
An interesting piece of trivia is that Seychelle isn't new to the Avatar franchise. She portrayed the moon princess Yue in the live action movie The Last Airbender.
Avatar has no shortage of Awesome female characters and Asami definitely fits in with them nicely. She's beautiful, and intelligent, charming and sweet at the same time. In contrast with Korra who is a bit of a tomboy, Asami is more feminine knowing more about fashion and trends. At the same time she is a sauvy businesswoman running her own company (Future Industries) and she knows how to take care of herself. She is very smart and she designs/operates a lot of really cool gadgets that she uses to help the team (boats, cars, mopeds, airships etc). While she doesn't possess bending abilities, she has had a lot of martial arts training and can hold her own in a fight. She uses gadgets to supplement her abilities such as electrified gloves and grappling hooks to supplement her skills.
With her gadgets, Asami sort of has a cool steampunk feel to her that suits her really well. I really like her a lot and unlike Avatar where I had a clear favorite female character, I find myself torn between which female character I like more Korra, Asami or Eska. Actually that's a pretty good discussion topic to end this entry with. We've done a lot of tributes to the Avatar women in the past. Do you guys have a favorite avatar girl? How about from Korra? Why do you like them?
As always...more to come soon!
