Azula (and Aang) Cosplay Pt. 2- Drafting Armor Patterns

Alright, part 2! Yay! On Wednesday Dad brought me home some old blueprints (he's in construction) so that I could start drafting my costume,

Ok, first I want to say that for lunch on Thursday i had only round foods, and I'm super proud of myself. Yep. ok, moving on...

So, I spent the past few days making the patterns for the armor. I feel very lucky that I got most of the measurements right on the first try!

My materials- I also ended up using an Exacto Knife to cut the pattern, instead of scissors.

Here's the pattern I found online. Most of my measurements were pretty similar.

I didn't like how it turned out at first, so I trimmed it up...

Next I made the collar

Pedicure break! I've been doing the same color since CVI...
Back/Front pannels

The whole thing!

Close up of the belt buckle- the fire nation phoenix!
I used a cup to outline it and cut it.

So, yeah! The costume's coming along great, and I have the measurements for Aang.


  1. This is really cool! :D I haven't read much if anything about armor construction, so this is neat to see. Also, love the nail polish color and the round foods. :)

  2. Thank you! Yeah, this is a very new experience for me, so 90% of it is me going "Idk idk idk. Oh! I bet this will work! Maybe..." haha!
