Series: Avatar: The Last Airbender, Legend of Aang
Character: Prince Zuko
Debuted At: Anime Expo 2011
Details: This costume is worn by an Aicosu special guest! Chez Santa Maria, Sheila's brother!
Sheila had always wanted to cosplay with her brother, Chez Santa Maria, and he had always been interested. When Avatar came out, they watched every episode that came out and deeply connected with the series; being raised in martial arts and having a sibling relationship. They decided to cosplay their favorite characters, Azula and Zuko; brother and sister, as brother and sister.
Most of this costume was assembled with pre-made clothes! Nurse scrubs were used for the pants and shirt and a Brown robe was used for the outer layer jacket. The gold lining on the jacket, shoes, and belt is all sealed and painted craft foam.
The scar makeup for Zuko was achieved by layering Chez's face with elmers glue and thin shredded pieces of tissue paper. When dry, it was painted over with foundation, brown eyeshadows and smudges of red lipstick to make the gnarly burn look convincing.
