Avatar Kyoshi Cosplay

I never tire of seeing cosplayers explore costumes from Avatar: The Last Airbender. The animated series is one of the best and features extensive world-building and fascinating characters such as Avatar Kyoshi. Cosplayer Ginger, a.k.a. Ginger Liz, was inspired enough by the powerful Kyoshi to replicate the warrior’s ensemble. She explains:

The fans are made of thin cardboard and wood-stained paint sticks, adorned with a green trim that also holds the blades together (see next image). They’re painted with Jacquard & DecoArt metallics, and each fan holds opposite elements on the opposing sides (water/fire, air/earth).

The clothing is in 3 layers:
* a bottom layer with a forest green moleskin wrap skirt and a shirt whose only function serves as a base for the poofy sleeves,
* a middle layer with a kelly green shantung overskirt, and
* the top layer, a fully-lined kimono-ish thing made of green ribbon taffeta and edged with hand-stitched satin.

A satin obi goes around the waist to complete the look.

See a picture of the fan in progress below.
