An outfit made for the avatar group on Made in Asia (MIA - Belgium). But due to an examination date changing, i couldn't participate anymore.
Originally i wanted to make the Kyoshi warrior outfit, but in the end i only had time for the simplified fire nation outfit. ^^;; Afterwards i would have had time to make the Kyoshi outfit, but i first wanted to wear the fire nation one before beginning another.

========= CREATION =========
I'm on a roll for making shoes lately. ^^ So i decided to make Suki's shoes too. People say "Don't bother, noone looks at your shoes". o.O BUT I DO!!!!! So there will be others that do too!!!!!!!! Anyways, they were made in a hurry. But i'm very happy with the result. They were very comfortable, but not suitable for walking outside on gravel. Oups ^^;
Suki is nothing without her fans. Most other Suki cosplayers bought fans on the internet. And most of those don't even look like the real deal. ^^ I figured i'd make them myself. Surprisingly it wasn't difficult to make at all. Lots of things went wrong to make them though. At first the cardboard i chose to make them with was too thick, which resulted in a fan that was about 8 cm thick when folded. o.O After buying less thick cardboard i actually bumped into the problem of not having a sharp knife anymore. And i only realised this when i made a second fan with it. And lastly painting the fans was a horror, since i kept buying the wrong golden paint. >_> UGH man i cursed a lot while making these, but in the end i'm very happy with the result. Made with cardboard, fishing wire and lots of paint. (At least they look a bit like Suki's real fans huhu)
have fun ~~
