This is the Halloween costume that I made for my daughter Zoey.  She is dressed as Aang, from the Nickelodeon cartoon Avatar: the Last Airbender.



The base of the costume was made using Simplicity pattern #2734, basic toddler pajamas.  I made up the rest.

2-tone 100% cotton shirt, pants, and capelet.  After making the shirt we realized her head was too big to fit through the hole (this is not stretchy material).  I put a slit in the front and added a ribbon tie.  THEN we realized it was difficult to get her arms into the sleeves ... again, because this wasn't stretchy.  I split up the back and added a zipper.  After that it was super easy to get her in and out.  



Her daddy was dressed as Prince Zuko and I was Katara.  



Daddy made her awesome glider!

Gahhh! I love it Grin  I'm such a big fan of the Avatar series but I'm not that great at sewing to attempt my own costume.
