I'M THE AVATAR -Legend of Korra- by StarDustShadow I'M THE AVATAR -Legend of Korra- by StarDustShadow
I'M THE AVATAR, YOU GOTTA DEAL WITH IT!

AHHHHHH I'm so happy. I love LoK (obviously), and I had a blast cosplaying Korra. I've loved her from the first second I saw her, and she's just so strong and brave and wonderful *GUSH*

I definitely plan on doing more of her outfits (jacket, season 2 shirt, etc).

The costume was completely made by me, as was the wig styling. For such a simple costume, there sure were some details that were a pain in the ass. But overall I'm really really happy! 8D

I plan on cosplaying korra for an upcoming con, any tips AT ALL that you could give me on how you made/where you got your shirt.

I made my shirt. I based it loosely off of a Chinese style shirt pattern, but altered it quite a lot. The fabric I believe is a light stretch cotton, because I didn't want it to be so stretchy it didn't have structure on it's own. The sleeve holes, honestly, were HARD to get the cut/shape just right (way harder than I thought it was going to be ;A; ), a lot of trying it on, pinning/drawing new lines, careful cutting, repeat like 5 times.

The white around the armholes is just bias tape. There's a small zipper in the back, and the collar has white piping along the edges.

Hope this info helps some? :3
