Character: Avatar Korra
Debuted At: Anime Expo 2012
Details: The costume consists of a lot of separate pieces. The shirt was sewn from a pattern! Specifially Burda 8347 "D" A few changes were made though, the front isn't two pieces like the pattern suggest. White bias tape was used to make the collar edging. NO LINING or INTERFACE was used. (Cardboard was used inside the collar to make it stand.) And the white of the sleeveless edges is painted on. The pants were bought nurse scrubs, and the brown leather was made from a suede from pillow case with sewed on fur. A suede navy blue skirt made the under layer and a scrap of pale blue fabric became the sash.
The shoes are simple old uggs bought from a thrift store with the brown strap and fur glued on.The optional Korra parka was made from a large dark blue knit sweater that was cut into shape. Fur trim was sewn on, and pale blue cord for the bottom line. The circle ornament was made completely from craft foam and the sleeves were finished with white bias tape.
The navy blue armbands are cut navy blue tights with white craft foam lining. The bicep band was made from the fabric of the shirt, painted in fabric paint for the designs and velcroed on. The hair ornaments were thin cut tubes of cardboard (plastic can be used too) fabric glued around them and white craft foam rims. They have to be threaded onto Sheila's hair via a bobby pin. No wig is being used! And the contacts are DollyEye Blue.
