So what other Avatar cosplayers are going to be at Otakon?

My group (which has grown significantly) will all be at Otakon for the first time as a whole group. We'll be doing the Gaang with Zuko and Suki included in multiple costumes sets (Invasion and Fire Nation... we've even got prison!Suki. And we're going to try to do any finale costumes they might have), along with Iroh, The Blue Spirit, Appa and (I think) Mai. We've toyed with the idea of doing a silly masquerade sketch, but haven't decided anything yet.

A bunch of us will also be at Connecticon the weekend before.

I'm thinking an Otakon Avatar meetup might be necessary.

I think there's an avatar meetup for otakon in the works in the otakon section, but it's pretty much dead.. haha. I'm going to bring Sokka (season 2/Fire nation) and/or make some new outfit. I would love Yue, but Otakon is way too hot for that... or Fire Nation Suki. I <3 that outfit. Or even Sokka's outfit from the "Sokka's Master" episode. I'm not sure yet.

I've started an Azula season 3 cosplay. But the only problem is her armor, I can't decide what color it is, or what I should make it out of. Her armor looks dark brown/black/auburn to me. But as I look at various pictures of it, it starts to confuse me. Also, I've read that her armor is made of leather, but it keeps a certain form and structure.

Yeah, it could definitely be made out of leather, but unless you've done any leather working before I don't recommend it. Getting leather to do what you want is really time consuming, and takes a bit of practice to get it right. Not to mention it can get rather expensive. x.x
You could probably make it out of craft foam or wonderflex, and then paint it to get Azula's look. Craft foam takes a little bit of working with, but at least it's super cheap, so if you mess up it isn't a big deal.

As for colour...I would probably do a base coat of crimson or burgundy and then go over it with a layer or two of black. You'd get the red tone from underneath but it would be closer to black than anything else. But, you could probably get away with solid black and not be able to tell much of a difference.

Sorry for rambling on! I hope that helps, anyway. ^^

Apologies if this has been asked before (I skimmed the thread but it's many many pages so I probably missed it), but I can't for the life of me figure it out from looking at screen shots. Does Toph have a hat or a crazy giant hair bun? I know it's the same color as her bangs, but it never registered as hair to me. But I've seen a few cosplayers do it that way, so I'm now confused...

Just go with a hat, it's much easier that way.

I spent a good half hour or so reading rufftoon's 'Water Tribe' fancomic today, and now I really really wanna cosplay Yue (I technically just want a really large fluffy water tribe coat). Only problem is that I'm too paaaaaaaale and instant tanner makes me orange. And since I can really only go to two cons a year I can't actually get a tan for her because I need to be deathly pale for Esther.

Ah well, someday. Maybe I'll make a nice long Water Tribe coat for no reason whatsoever someday.

Hello folks! I've recently decided to tackle evil fire princess Azula! (I have the burns to prove it...ha ha...)

All joking aside, I was wondering what everyone else's opinions on her hair was. In some screenshots I've seen it as having like a brownish tint to it, but it looks blackish grey... So yeah...any help? Screenshots included!
http://screenshots.avatarspiritmedia.net/008/036.jpg (crazy Azula is crazy!!)
http://screenshots.avatarspiritmedia.net/201/385.jpg (Looks brown)
http://screenshots.avatarspiritmedia.net/120/477.jpg (Again looks brown)
http://screenshots.avatarspiritmedia.net/201/056.jpg (But is it really black?)

Azula's hair I would say is black or a very dark brown (Like my hair ^_^) The second one that you posted that looks brown is because of the shading.

I would go with black though.

lol I'm currently working on a Mai costume, though I do have parts ready for a Female Fire nation Prison Guard. Though I'm not actually going to be wearing them unless they turn out the way I want them to be.

I'm using my natural hair as well for Otakon. It's REALLY dark brown.

(back from the dead) have had a Mai costume in the works for a while, my fiancee and I are doing Zuko and Mai this year at Anime Weekend Atlanta. I'm also planning to use my spare red fabrics to make Toph's fire nation outfit as well!
