View Full Version : Katara Cosplay? (cosplay newbie)

06-03-2011, 08:37 PM
Hello. I'm very new to cosplay (this would be my first one ). I was hoping that I could cosplay as Katara for Metro Con in a couple of weeks, and I have a bunch of questions. I was hoping I could just buy a costume, but I don't exactly have $100 to spend. I've never actually sewed clothes before either. (I know basic sewing) I'm not too picky on whether it's her water tribe, or fire nation outfit either. I would rather have the water tribe outfit with the long sleeves, but I could opt for short sleeves too. So here are my questions.

- Is it possible for a newbie like me to make a costume in two weeks?
- Will it be expensive?
- Is there anywhere I could find a dress similar to Katara's that I can edit?
- Would it be best to just buy a costume? Or get one commissioned? How much would that cost?

Sorry for all the questions, but I'd really appreciate the help. :)
