DescriptionI started watching the show in March of 2011 and fell in love with the fandom! I love Toph's character and earthbending is badass :D
I drafted the patterns for the vest, shirt, and bracers myself -- I used a really backwards pants pattern for the pants. They required you to french seam the outer seam for the pants to work right :P It was really derpy. I used a higher quality cotton for the green and a bottomweight target for the vest. I had some brown marine vinyl lying around from a pair of boots, so I utilized that for the bracers and belt.
Overall I really like the costume and I'm pretty proud of it. I've remade the vest since I last worn it and added a higher collar. I've recently purchased a pair of mesh/cataract contact lenses and plan to remake the wig.
I've had some really good times with this costume - lots of good memories!
