Toph Progress Report 1

Posted on

Finally I got all the fabric and materials for Toph’s Fire Nation disguise.  Well, all the materials except for the wig.  Darn thing needs to get here sooner. 

So far I have yet to start working on the project.  I’ve decided to use cotton fabric for the outfit as cotton hangs better and is easier to wear in the heat of summer.  Also it’s something that I think goes in accordance with the series. 

As for the pattern, I’ve decided to use pattern number M6083.  View A-C are so perfect for Toph’s costume.  I am using a modified version of view B.  It fit’s best.  I only have to shorten the leg length and maybe take in some of the ease.  Other than that it’s perfect!

I decided how I’m going to style the wig.  I found a video on Youtube that details how to make a nearly perfect Toph hairstyle out of one wig.  So instead of the usual two, I only bought one black wig.  With it I’m going to create a modified version of this hairstyle. 

Toph Wig Idea

I just have to flatten the back a bit and I’m done.

Other than that there’s not much else to say.  I’m super excited to start this project.  I can’t wait to get it finished.  Then I can wear it to the convention and other such events.
