Katara, Toph, and Zuko

Characters: Katara, Toph, and Zuko
Costumes: Season 1, Season 2, and Season 3 outfits (respectively)
From: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Made: 2008

Oh, Avatar. Okay, fine, *technically* it may be a kids' cartoon, but I personally think it's one of the most awesome series in recent memory. If you haven't watched it, I highly, highly recommend it. That finale-- OH MAN. My friend's kids were the ones who got me into it; they told me that if I liked Kim Possible (and I did), I'd *love* Avatar. To thank them for being right, I offered to make them Avatar costumes for Halloween.

They chose a fun assortment of characters-- Katara, a waterbender; Toph, an earthbender; and Zuko, a firebender. This was my first time replicating animated costumes, which presented an interesting new set of challenges. I'm really pleased with how they turned out!

I don't currently have much construction information for these. Katara and Toph's costumes were mostly made with linen from fabrics-store.com; Zuko's is crinkle cotton and cotton broadcloth, with gold silk taffeta accents.
