Costume Information

Cost : £30
Time Taken : 1 week

After consulting with my fabric collection and realising that I have enough I'm reverting back to Sokka's firenation outfit.

Have asked a friend (chibi) to help me out with the wig (bald cap, wefts, glue etc etc etc)

*Update* Space Sword is being borrowed from the lovely Keekal! (HOTMAN!) And I have crafted a Boomerang in the process, having had some time to spare!

The Boomerang Saga Continues (Posted 8th August 2012)

The painting continues! Right now half is completed with a little bit of detailing to do.
Will have it all finished tonight

Boomer-anging Around! (Posted 7th August 2012)

Ok seriously cannot get over that joke XD
Boomerang now covered in at least 7 layers of newspaper. Needs to dry, quick sanding with some softer sandpaper, drill 2 holes in the specific places, sprayed black to prime then painting with acrylics. Will more then likely finish with some weathering if there's time.

You DO always come back to me! (Posted 7th August 2012)

So instead of Space Sword (which i'll hopefully be borrowing from Becca) I've decided on making an old friend instead! BOOMERANG! Basic card, tape, glue and paper mache- nothing exceptional just something fun to lol with!
Will be priming and paper maching it then painting after adding some detail and sanding down.

Outfit Bending! (Posted 11th July 2012)

Yeah sokka may not be a bending character but I sure as fuck am!

Got his outfit done in record time and really chuffed with how it looks!
Next is space sword and then attempting my wig... Going for the bald cap and add wefts method. That's gunna be a fun one! T_T

Progress! (Posted 8th July 2012)

So far so good! Ish...
Everything I need is nearly cut out with the exception of the belt.
The top 2 pieces are ready to be sewn, the belt will need cutting out, then a seperate piece knotted and twisted to form the detailing. Then I intend to velcro at the back. Need to dart the top itself so it fits rather then looking like a baggy sack then add the frog fasteners when they arrive!
Bias binding to go on the cuffs once they're cut out then need to make sure that the burgundy trim to his wedge top is glued on then biased for security.
Ok trousers. Thankfully I had an old pair of baby blue trousers knocking about from a previously unfinished cosplay so I had tried to dye them... Yeah... they're grey not black. *Insert Rage face here* So i'm going with hand dye instead of machine dye next time and giving that a go to get the correct shade.

Other then that a friend is working on the wig for me once i've received my bald cap and hopefully I can make a quick start on space sword!

*UPDATE* Everything is sewn top wise, cuffs to be done when i've bought more bias. Trouser wise i'm giving up on the dyeing idea and going straight back to just using some of the left over black I have knocking about. Will be far easier.
