Katara WaterTribe Costume

So my little cousin wanted to be Katara from Avatar the Last Airbender for Halloween and this is the result.

The costume was surprisingly easy to make. I dont have any childrens patterns so I cheated and took a dress of my cousins that was the right size and a hoodie and simply drafted the shape and size by eye based on the clothes I had. The costume is a size 7/8 and takes about 2 yards of fabric and allot of faux fur which sheds as bad as my dog.

The hardest part I had was figuring out how to get her in and out of it because cartoon artists never think about where zippers go so I cheated and made it baggy enough that she can pull it over like a nightgown and then the fur belt at the waist is separate and velcros closed to cinch in the waist.

Because the costume wouldnt be complete without Kataras bethrothal necklace I had to make one of those as well.

To make the necklace my little brother even helped by take a circular drill bit and drilling out a wooden disc for me from some scrap wood we had around the house. Then I drilled a whole through it and painted the disc to match the cartoon. The cartoon has the pendant on a piece of blue ribbon but all the ones Ive seen online show the pendant pulling on the ribbon so I decided to take a piece of long blue cotton and I interfaced it and used that to make the choker so that the weight of the pendant didnt pull on the fabric.

Hope you enjoy!

GREAT JOB!!  I'm really hoping on being Toph for Halloween, but I think I'm being forced into being a care bear!

Good job!  Very pretty.  I'd have worn something like that all the time when I was younger.
