The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra

Last Updated: 09-20-2012


As of now this cosplay is (for now) complete. Pictures are soon to follow.

Everything is handmade by me; the wig was styled by me with help from a friend.

Shirt:
light blue spandex. The white for the collar is bias tape and the sleeve holes has a stretch.

Pants:
Spandex/Jersey knit.

dark blue apron:
non-stretch linen-type fabric... Black elastic is on the back to keep it on.

fur-trimmed pelt:
dark brown suede, with ivory long pile fur. A light blue (slightly darker than the shirt blue) was used for the waist tie.

armbands:
Same white fabric as the sleeveholes, with the pants fabric as the trim and acrylic paint for the circles and triangles. Dark blue jersey knit for the wrist armbands with the same white fabric as the shirt collar.

Boots:
Completely made from scratch. I used the sole inserts from a pair of slipper clogs with the same brown suede as the pelt (so they matched, and white cheap fur (which I'll be replacing soon) as the trim on top. The soles are craft foam sprayed with Plasti-Dip and painted with Burnt Umber acrylic paint. They're EXTREMELY comfortable and easy to walk in. :D

Wig:
Was going to be commissioned but I ended up doing it myself...I added wefts to the sides. 2 skinny plastic tubes were used for the side tails, craft wire was used on the ponytail to help it stay up, and after the con I've added a small dowel to the inside of the ponytail, which was also stuck through the wig itself to stay in place.
