That wig is great Simetra!! (:

My Katara (season 3) and Appa cosplays are almost done. They were done enough or me to wear on Halloween but will get some more updates for Sakuracon such as Katara's necklace, better shoes, and her arm wraps.



For all you Katara cosplayers how are you doin the bun & hair loopies? Right now my bun is a small pillow I made covered with wefts that match my wig then safety pined/bobby pined onto the wig. And my hair loopies are wefts that are glued onto bobby pins on both sides then tucked under/onto the wig. I think my wefts may be too short to make good hair loopies... Should I just get new wefts/cut some from the wig or is there a way to attach wefts to each other? xDDD I'm trying to keep everything removable from the wig for easy storage and so I can use the wig for other costumes.

Man all these great cosplays make mine look rather plain now.

Anyway here is my northern waterbender cosplay from Kumoricon, sorry the picture was not the best.

It was a commission I had a friend do for me and I am rather happy with it, although I kept getting referred to as a Eskimo ninja

Well my convention was on the weekend! Lets just say that full body armour and water tribe clothes are not good in what is almost a tropical australian summer. But me (Lin Bei Fong) and my mum (Gran Gran Katara) got a lot of love, and i think a lot were surprised someone had attempted a Lin. I really loved that about 3 young (young in age as cosplayers, and young as in ATLA katara) cosplayers came up to mum and really wanted to get photos with her...haha I almost got pushed out of the photos! But, here is the best shot we got together: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3315000/

If anyone wants advice, I'm happy to give some. This was my first armour, and it turned out pretty well, though I'd like to redo if i get a chance, since there are a few things I could do better, with my new knowledge.

Amon's all done! There are more photos in my Coscom gallery, as well as my dA. AWA was awesome! I met so many new friends and my costume was well received. Hope you all like it too! Next on my list is Aang from AtLA.

Lovely and awesome!

I've just found out that Azula's voice actor, Grey DeLisle, will be at Emerald City Comicon. I'm thinking about going up to meet her dressed as Zuko. I bet she'd get a kick out of it.

Been a long time since I've been on this forum page. All the new costumes look awesome! It's cool to see so much new Korra stuff! Makes me miss cosplaying Avatar characters. I kind of wish I could do another, but I don't have the time, and I have no idea who I would even choose to cosplay now.

Did some work on my Azula wig. Woo! I put the dark brown luthien up in to a high ponytail for a con this weekend. Should go well, I hope.

Hey everyone, I am planning to make Katara's fire nation outfit and I was wondering if anyone had any advice to give when making the bottom design on the skirt. It looks like a swirl or curl at the end. I am stuck at how to make the design or where to start >.< Also I was wondering how to make the outer lining (the dark lines) look so straight and smooth on the outside of the rectangle flaps on Katara's skirt. Helppp!

Well, what I'm doing for Azula in places like that is using bias tape. To get the designs, I'm ironing it flat and then using heat n bond to place the designs where it's supposed to go. Then I put the bias tape on over it properly. After that put a top stitching or maybe a satin stitch over the edges of everything. At least that's the plan. I'll let you know how that goes.

The swirly design looks about the same as her water nation outfit, so what I did was cut out 8 of the shape which ended up looking like a fancy arrow, and then bag lined them. After that they can just be top stitched to the outfit.

For my stripes on her skirt I made my own bias tape out of my fabric then put it over the hem and sewed on the back side first then top stitched the front part so that only my pretty top stitch was visible.

I hope that helps! (:
