Fire Nation Katara cosplay by Kuroame14 Fire Nation Katara cosplay by Kuroame14
Fire Nation Katara from Avatar the Last Airbender. Sewed this costume for Anime North 2008. I love Katara and all her costumes <3 This is the fixed version of this costume, I'm sure there's photos floating around when the details on this costume were a little off (eg, necklace, arm bands were crap), but I like this version :D

<3's all ATLA lovers.

This is so great! I'm looking to cosplay Fire Nation Katara too and I can't find any tutorials on her upper arm bands/anklet/bracelet/necklace things. Could you please tell me how you did them? Thanks so much :)

Thank you for the lovely comments!  I used a stretchy thick gold fabric, wish I could remember the name of it for the bracelets. I rolled the inside out side of the fabric to make the upper arm bands and the edging of the bracelet (need to use a glue gun inside to seal into rolly shape).  The necklace was also fabric with a pretty buttons I had found and again, using the inside of the shiny gold fabric rolled with glue gun to make the edging.

How did you make it??? Was there a pattern you used? What kind of fabric did you use?

Hi! I used inverted satin for the shirt and dress, and a more starchy material (not sure what it was) for the flaps. I didn't use a pattern, I sorta eye ball most of my costumes.

I used the inner (blandish) side of satin for the shirt and for the arm bands... I can't remember >_< It was shiny but thinner than satin

Yay! I'm going to Anime North this year and plan on going as Katara (a la fire nation). Your costume looks amazing! Do you have any tips for me?

Kuroame14 Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2010
:D thanks for the comment!! As for tips... Well, for fire nation Katara, I find the trickiest thing was the shirt. A pattern might help for a belly top. As for the skirt, I find it looked weird at first because it was very 'box' shaped, and so I gave it a bit of fluff around the hips to make it appear flowy.

Okay this is going to sound a little odd but,how did you do your hair? I am going as Katara for a convention but i can't figure out how to do my hair!

hey sorry for the late reply. That is my natural hair. Here's a link to the side of it: (beware of steamy Zutara) [link]

Basically I washed my hair, towel dried, and then I added curling mousse. I also hair-sprayed the hell out of it. My natural hair is layered which is what helps the wavey-ness.

I took the top half and then with an elastic I made it into a loop. To help keep the loop up, I put a clip underneath it.

For winter Katara, I used a hair extension, let me know if you need details about that.

Hope it helps! :D

Where can i buy the hair extensions for the Winer Katara at?

Actually, I'm not quite sure. The braid extension was something my mom had lying around from when she was in India. They are called "parandhas" or "prandhi" which are an extension that is supposed to be braided into hair that's already a bit long.
