Cosplay highlights from Dragon*Con with some of the other cosplayers I found at the convention! The resemblance between the guy cosplaying as Lord Baelish and the actual character was scary. He looked and sounded just like him!
We have the following:
My friends and I were discussing the lavabending in the season finale, and that is the one of this list that really doesn’t make much sense (well, makes less sense than all the others). I can understand the part about bending lava, but I don’t understand how they can produce lava from rocks and then harden it once again. My theory was that it might have something to do with the parents, one being a firebender and one an earthbender, such as in Bolin’s case. If you think about it, we’ve only been introduced to two lavabenders (besides the avatars), and we know nothing about the one’s parents. It really wasn’t until Legend of Korra that benders of mixed origins became common, so I could see some potential existing for bending combinations.
Then again, waterbenders are able to freeze and thaw water, so why couldn’t earthbenders be able to heat rocks? I still think lavabending is more like a mixture of earthbending and firebending. The difference in temperature needed to freeze and thaw water is nothing compared to the temperature needed to make molten rocks. Also, molten rocks can set things on fire, so it is crossing into the firebending domain a little.
I need to stop thinking so much into this topic. It’s just a cartoon, so I guess the answer doesn’t really have to make complete sense. -_-
