Outfit Design and then Some Moana Spoilers

SPOILERS ARE ARE THE VERY BOTTOM

A while ago a fried asked me to help her design a costume for anime convention purposes. Specifically a sort of humanoid interpretation of the Blue Lion from Voltron: Legendary Defender. The Blue Lion bis of course meant to represent water so we tried to incorporate some water/ocean-like details. This is what we ended up with between her giving me details and me sketching ideas a few times. We're both pleased with the end result.

 

Here's what the Blue Lion looks like in the new show, as a reference.


SPOILERS FOR MOANA BEYOND THIS POINT

Moana is a wonderful movie with amazing music. One song specifically from near the end of the movie really strikes a cord with me. It also made me think of a scenario for Voltron where maybe Shiro has been captured/corrupted and it's up to Pidge to save him not through violence but reminding him of who he really is.

I realize if you're not familiar with Voltron this makes no sense but I worked hard on this and by gum I'm posting it.
