Zuko's costume_Step 1 PATTERN

This is how I defined the pattern for my Zuko's costume and the cotton fabric length/height I'll need.
In the past, people asked me how I'll work. So, here is Step 1.

I have not a lot of experience on creating costume so I hope it will turns good. I used a Japanese Kimono pattern for reference.

I already bought the fabric and material I'll need. For info, it costed around 50 euro. But probably I will have enough to make something else with what is left.

Final work must ressemble to this Zuko's costume> [link]

BIG UPDATE:
Mesurements and new pattern for the pant added.

This is by no means to sound rude, but what size are/were you when you wore this? I'm wanting to make my own but I need to figure out which way to adjust the measurements! Thank you for your time!

You sir, are a saint.
D: Too bad there are no Katara or Aang versions of this. >w< Lol, aka the ones I need.
BanishedPrince's avatar
:D Sorry, but I don't have Katara or Aang. Also, be careful with this one, since there was some mistakes in it that I corrected on the costume but not on the pattern.

WOW. I've been trying really, really hard to figure out how to make Zuko and Azula cosplays for me and my brother, using their season 3 outfits. It's proving quite difficult. Do you have any suggestions? I'm desperate to sew both outfits by NYCC.
BanishedPrince's avatar
This pattern was my first version, in fact I did it twice. The first version was to understand how it works, because I never sewed before and then I tryed to correct all the mistakes in the second version.
What I can suggest is :
> first do a draft with a cheap fabric. Cutting bigger, then trying to find the right shape. When it's ok, redraw the pattern on the good fabric.
> For the armour, I suggest a light material. I tried to make one with a groundsheet used for gymnastics. Then you can paint it with acrylics and protect with a varnish (not sure of this word?!) spray.

Oh, thank you so much for the advice! It makes a lot of sense, thanks again!

Tell me you're not wearing this to anime north :P I started making this exact outfit just this morning. lol
BanishedPrince's avatar
No. I live in Europe. ^^ But I'll probably wear it for the San Diego Comic Con, I want to go there this year. Could you please show me some photo of your when finished? You have done a better pattern than me. It was my first attempt at cosplay and I know well that mine is not very good.
I'll work on the weapons soon and post a tutorial. I found a interesting solution. I think it could interest you too.

Man, I can't wait to see the finished product!!:dance:
That is a cool Zuko outfit... although, most of Zukos outfits are cool when you think about it!! ;) :D
BanishedPrince's avatar
:D It was hard to choose which one to do. Finaly I choose that one because Zuko will probably wear this until the end of season 3 :D

that outfit is the third most squeeful he's ever worn. The second most squeeful is the Blue Spirit outfit, and the most squeeful is Book Three armor!
QueenBotu's avatar
That's a good idea. :)
