Coolest Avatar Aang Costume

My 6 year old son Connor wanted to look like his favorite cartoon character on nickalodean’s Avatar Aang.

His Grandmother made his Avatar Aang costume out of yellow,orange and brown felt, and put cardboard under the collar to make it stiff and stand up. He put on a dark tan sweat shirt underneath, and wore tan pants, and black shoes.

We modeled the costume after the character and an action figure he had, and he already had the flying staff he had received from his birthday, it makes sounds. We shave his head, because he wanted to look authentic, a bald cap will work, and used blue Halloween make-up to paint on the arrow and line across his head to the back of his head, and the arrows on his hands.

We had a lot of fun making this costume, and my son had even more fun wearing it. Everywhere we went, he was followed by children and adults alike saying “theres the Avatar!!” He sure was proud and really became the character. I hope you enjoy this costume and can add to it for your children to enjoy. And Happy Halloween!

  5. My son has been asking me for months to get him an Ang costume. I can’t find one but I think I might make it. You guys did an awesome job. I love it. I keep my son’s hair cut really low anyway so shaving it won’t be a problem. It grows back so quickly. Thanks for the idea.

  6. I wish I could have made this costume a little bigger, he is now 8, and wants to be Ang again!!!
    I don’t want to shave his head though this time. I will post photos if we make another Ang.

  8. i love avatar and have been looking foe a costume every where. But now i know how to make one, THX GUYS!!!! and keep battling the fire nation little guy.

  9. I have been looking for a pattern to make one of these. I haven’t found a costume designed after the series, only the movie. My daughter loves the cartoon so much that she wants to be Aang for Halloween this year.
    I can sew, but I’m not a seasoned vet, so I can’t design one myself from just looking at the show. Do you have any tips?

  10. My son is six and would love this costume. We’ve been looking online and can’t find anything that doesn’t look cheap. You did a great job with this. Would you consider selling it?
