AtLA was my first and biggest cosplay love. I cosplay as Toph and Azula, and my friends did some groups for a while. Here is a collection of most of our work:

When we did the group, I had a few jobs across the characters. My favourite job was building a spring-loaded glider.



Plus making Space Sword was a lot of fun too


All the construction photos are collected in its epic glory here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...50044&type= 3

For my next AtLA cosplay, I'm going to "borrow" Suki's armour and be Kyoshi Azula

Hi everyone. Starting to work on my second Avatar cosplay. This time it's Korra from 'Legend of Korra' I was wondering if anyone knew how to do the arm band she wear. If there's a pattern out there because I'm worried about doing it with out one.

I don't know if you still need help, but this is what I did for mine, which is painted leather but the principle could be used for other materials.

First, your arm isn't a perfect cylinder, it tapers. So I had a friend measure where I wanted the top of the armband to be and then the bottom, and I used those measures to cut my leather. I put down a solid base of white paint (I used Angelus leather paints). I then counted how many blue triangles she had on her armband. I measured the width of the leather a bit down from the top, to account for the dark blue edging, and divided it by the number of triangles I'd counted. I did the same for the point edge.

Now, when you connect these lines, you'll see that they all point towards the center and only the middle triangle is straight. This means that when it's on your arm, they look straight up and down. If you really want to get fancy, bow out the lines of the blue triangles so that they're very slightly curved, but that makes the painting more time consuming and is a very minor touch.

After the blue triangles were painted, I painted the circles on and, when that was dry, used tape to mask the edges for a straight line and put the dark blue edges on. Pop some holes in the edges and set in some eyelets, and it's done!

That's what I'm hoping. Steam ironed it earlier today. Looks better than I thought it would. One thing to cross off the list!

I hate collars. I can draft the rest of any sort of garment, no problem, but a collar? Because of this, I have quite the collection of tutorials.

Is it the shape that's stumping you about it? If so, I use this tutorial (http://buzzybeesworld.blogspot.com/2...ar-draft.html), but for a standing collar like that I just use the collar stand stage of things and extend and reshape it till it works. If it's something else, let me know, I have quite a few more collar-related bookmarks.

I was going to just do Book 1 Korra for my photoshoot on the Washington state coastline in August, but now, with Book 2 so near, I might have to try to find the time to remake the shirt and arm covers.

My Azula wig is coming along nicely. I'm adding a lace front to an Arda Jeannie so I can have the nice widow's peak.
