Description"People see me and think I'm weak. But I can take care of myself."-Toph
Favorite part was the hardest part - The crazy hair bun!
My cosplay of Toph from Avatar the Last Airbender. She's a powerful martial artist, yet since she's the young daughter of the Bei Fong family they see her as weak. Toph contains an inner strength that comes from her drive to bring out the strength of the earth and regardless of her blindness, this handicap doesn't stop her from striking through the toughest of enemies.
I love these contacts! So spooky. The pants, spats, gloves, and top are made from twill and cheongsam/apron is made from some sort of bizarre poly that I cannot name. It is fully lined. The fluffs at the side of my headpiece are made of bunny fur (I used a hair tie that I had lying around) All patterns were drafted/draped by me.
Special thanks to Zachary for helping me out with this costume. (It couldn't have been done without all the green tea, episodes of Avatar, his help pinning down stuff to be sewn, picking up all the pins as they flew around the sewing room and all X.X)
In closing, I want to do a lot more of her costumes!
