So I am going to a con in November and I am cosplaying Bolin and Mako from LOK. I have a plan for fake Fire-bending but... Anyone have ideas on how I could do some Earth-bending? I REALLY don't like my friends idea of throwing rocks at people LOL But seriously... Chiffon is way to dainty to pull off Earth. Fire and Water, YES. Ideas? :D

How about one of those stone tokens from the Pro Bending suspended between your hands by fishing line?

In fact, you could make a couple out of styrofoam and attach them to your hands with that clear elastic.

Check out the con location and see if there are any big rocks in the landscaping, or stone walls or half-walls. You could hang out near there and pose for photos like you just earthbent the walls into place.

I also really like the suggestion of making the pro-bending coins. They're small and easy to carry around, unlike Toph's earth tent.

There isn't so much for rocks at the convention center, TRUST ME hahaha there is a fantastic fountain for water-bending SO! :3 but I will double check and see if I can use anything to my advantage! Thanks for the tip! :D

I got some big blocks of foam, glued them together, spray painted it grey/brown, and attached it to nylon strings. I could swing it, and when outstretched it looked like it was hovering. http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2011/105/8/2/today_is_the_day____by_os_cordis-d3e1d3x.jpg

I was considering painted beach balls for our Toph to kick around...

Nice idea, you could glue foam and dirt to it to make it a little more uneven? We had a painted beach ball for Aang to kick around ;)
