Avatar Kyoshi Cosplay by Caranth Avatar Kyoshi Cosplay by Caranth
I've been working on this cosplay all summer.
Everything apart from the underskirt was made by me and sewn by hand,without using patterns :D
Skirt was made from green silk and thick canvas
Undershirt was made from yellow wool
Kimono was made from green silk and a good 10m of thick ribbon,stitched on around the edges (ow my hands)
Armguards made from green and brown felt,with white gloves with green felt sown onto the top
Fans originally had designs on them,painted gold to match the rest of the outfit
Headress made from cardboard,brass sheets,wire ribbon and gold paint
Hair's a wig i ordered from Amazon ;) And getting the makeup right took hours :D

Eww, man... Could you tell me how to sew gloves? I always mess them... :-(
And I'm jealous also... I'm working on a Mai cosplay, and I need to do it with my own hands since I messed up my mom's machine too... I don't say that my dress is bad (since this is my first OWN cosplay which I'm making on my own) but nothing against your clothes...

Sewing gloves is very hard - the ones here are white,with green felt sewn on over the top (using the original glove as a pattern to cut the felt)
For a basic glove,place your palm flat on the material,draw around it for the pattern,and sew the edges. Its much easier to just buy them though.
Jealous?Im flattered :tighthug: Dont put yourself down - my first attempts at cosplays were hopeless.
Sewing with your own hands?Ouch :glomp:
Good luck with your cosplay - could you send me photos when its done?I'd love to see :D

I can totally see you doing that! No offence to the designers of the Avatar the last airbender movie costume designers, I think you could do a better job! XD
