How to make a Korra cosplay

Can someone please help me? I want to cosplay Korra from The Legend of Korra for an upcoming con but I have no idea where to start. I obviously have to make it. Does anybody have any suggestions or tips? Here's a reference picture:

For the shirt you can buy a light blue turtle neck and cut off the arms and thent use white fabric paint around the arms and neck

For Korra's ponytail hair piece and her two front hair pieces you can use different sizes of spools that hold thread "you would take off the thread" and then paint the required parts to match Korra's hair pieces. here is what they should look like :http://browse.deviantart.com/?order=...t=144#/d4y1jdj and here is a small tutorial:http://lifesadarkart.deviantart.com/...rial-299200270

Thanks for all the good advice it's helping a lot the only thing I'm stuck on now is how to get my wig to stand up like her high ponytail:

And the stuff she has tied around her waist:

for the armbands you could get long blue gloves and cut off the hand part.

For the pony tail I suggest using hair gel or hair spray to get it to stand the way you like. But for the most part the bump from where the hair comes out of the hair tie will naturally happen when it is high enough. Or at least it should.

I'm making a Korra cosplay as well so I did some research. Also there is a tutorial on deviantart on how to make the boots.

For the thing around her waist, it's most likely a jacket. But it'd be pretty hot to have an actual jacket. So get some soft material and line it with craft fur in white. You could glue the fur on or sew it.
