Korra fight! by RocketGirluvsUkitake Korra fight! by RocketGirluvsUkitake
I went to GMX last weekend! It was kind of small, but a lot of fun! Plus any excuse to wear my Korra cosplay is a good one :) I was the only Korra there, and I had a great time hanging out with an all-avatar crew. Thanks to Bryan Wenzel for taking this pic of me!

Awesome job gurl! : D
How did you go about making her patterned arm band? I'm coming into difficulties with mine and trying to find some ideas.

Thanks! I just used the same material I used for the shirt, a stretch cotton. I sewed the lip on the top and bottom, then I got a ruler and made some very light pencil lines to outline the trinagles and circles. I knew my arm size, and that I wanted 5 white triangles, so I calculated the layout and marked it based on that. I used a dime to outline the circles, haha! Then I just got some fabric paint and a small brush and went to town. It took 2 coats, and the fabric stayed stetchy! Lastly, I knew my seam allowance, so I pinned it and sewed it into a tube. Done! It still didn't like to stay on my arm after a couple hours of wear though, so a little double stick tape fixed that right up! I hope that's enough info for you ;) (Also, one thing I didn't do was paint the outer edge the darker blue because I didn't have the paint.)

No problem!
Oooohhh! Wow you used paint too, seems that several people did this method. I think I'm seriously going to needa try it now xD That's tons of info! thank you so much!! Now, I'm just curious, with it being stretch fabric and all and how it still stretched after, did the paint like crack or look weird or anything when it was stretched or did it stay fine? That would be the only thing I'd be worried about.

It does lose a little ability to stretch, but not much. The paint will also separate a bit along the stretch fibers, but as long as you don't stretch it crazy far, if you're not holding it inches from your face, then you can't really tell. It goes back to looking cohesive once you unstretch it too.

Fabric paint is pretty cheap, go to a craft store and give it a try, see how you like the result.

ohhh okay! Thank you so much! C: I'm definitely going to try it. I have some fabric paint around my house so even though it's not the right colour I'll give it a try!
