Avatar: The Last Airbender
Megacon 2007, Anime South 2007, Photoshoots
All my friends were getting into this show called Avatar, and I didn’t trust it.. being on Nickelodeon and all. When they expressed interest in me cosplaying with them I was still skeptical.. but I accidentally caught the end of season 2 on TV and I immediately fell in love! How could I have said no to this?!
Haha, after watching it, I decided that I liked Katara. Water’s my element and I really liked her character <3. Plus, she has HUGE dark brown hair just like me!
I finally figured out how to make this costume work after much thought.. and I was so happy with the result. For megacon 2007 I made a hybrid between her first and second season outfits (which is what most people do), because I was planning on making it transformable. Well, that didn’t work because they’re totally different!
So, later on I made a season 2 kimono in maybe a day and a half, fully lined and I love it! This costume is so comfortable and I love the hairstyle.. though I’m not sure if it’s the most flattering on me. The braid and loopies are extensions and I often get asked if it’s my real hair.
The hardest part of this costume is making myself brown and making it look right.. because I’m pretty pale! After a lot of trial and error, I found something that I like the most, and I’ve been using that method ever since. If you need any help with body painting, please message me, I’ll be glad to help!
