Give me an idea?

Well, I am going to be cosplaying Katara at Dragon*Con this year. And, I keep thinking to myself, "Self, I wonder what we could have as a prop for her character."

Yeah, normal poses are okay, and whatnot, I understand that. But, does anyone have any ideas of what cool thing I could do?


Picture reverence!

OMG, the picture I saw searching for that one. IT CANNOT BE UNSEEN!!!

Poi!

I am using white spiral poi for my Aang cosplay

you can get them in every color and they are perfect for 'bending'

Those poi do look awesome, I didn't know they had them with the cloth attached to the end. Another thing you could do is make a water prop out of polyester resin. I did this for my Katara cosplay at Otakon. I made a mold out of homemade play-dough (though I'm investing in a tub of natural clay for next time, so that I can make it smoother), lined the dough with plastic wrap and poured the resin. Two days and a mirrored mold later (to make it rounded), I had a water whip! I used clear beading cord to hold it up. My favorite thing about this was that you didn't have to be in motion for it to work and look good, so I could hold a pose for awhile and not lose the effect.

I really do appreciate all of your ideas with this. I would -LOVE- a poi idea. Unfortunately, I do NOT think I will be getting it in time for DragonCon. Sadly.

I could attempt the resin thing. Though, I am not entirely sure at how I can do it though. But, I will try.

Thank you guys once again for the help!

..You know, I would love to see a picture of you doing your poi thing with your Avatar costume on.

Also, instead of buying, I am going to make my poi.
