Wow, reading this whole thread was surprisingly intimidating--so many amazing costumes! I'm working on a Book 2 Zuko (his "Zuko Alone" outfit) for my first con in February, but I won't have time to do much on it until October. I'll have to check back in once I have something to show off...

So I started working on boot covers. The shoes aren't nearly as complicated as I thought they'd be. Should probably get some insoles though.

Insoles make a world of difference, even on top of a really great base shoe/sole.

Hmmm..., I guess I'll be hanging around this area of the forums since my last two cosplays were from the series. Btw, I'm digging all of the costumes that you guys posted on here. I need to post mine soon too.

From your username, I bet I can guess who one of the two was...

So here's a little something for cosplayers who want to attempt Earth Kingdom Toph. I usually see people requesting possible patterns for the yellow overcoat she wears. I think with some minor alterations, this could be a good starting point. Just chop off the sleeves, get rid of the front seams, shorten it, and add a mandarin collar. I'm thinking of remaking my top using this one. Just thought I'd give a heads up.

Oooh definitely a good reference. ^_^

The collar of Azula's armor perplexes me.

I did some research and found out that the olive-green underlayer that Zuko and Iroh wear in Book 2 up until he reaches Ba Sing Se is modeled on a Chinese undergarment called a shuhe--the only difference is that Zuko and Iroh wear their tunics tucked into their pants rather than over. I even found this great pattern-drafting guide for making one, which will save me a great deal of extra tinkering with my muslin. Better yet, the overtunic Zuko wears appears to be the same thing, just without sleeves, so I now have a handy pattern for that as well. Have I ever mentioned that I love the internet?

In other good news, it turns out there's a theatrical supply store that sells Ben Nye products within a few blocks of my office, so I can run over on my lunch break and get everything I need for Zuko's scar without having to pay shipping. I can't believe I never knew this before.

Scar/wig test for Book 2 Zuko:





And with the hat (which I need to attach the straps to):



The scar was accomplished with liquid latex, toilet paper, a Ben Nye burn effects wheel, and matte eyeshadow. (Also lube, to keep the latex from ripping my eyebrow off when I removed it. My husband did a double take when he saw me applying that to my face...)
