Avatar-The Last Airbender character, Aang has become a fairly popular cosplay option at conventions. With a simple yet distinct look, it is an easy look to pull off. Follow our guide and turn yourself or someone else, into the popular Air Nomad with just seven pieces!
We’ll start at the top with a Bald Cap and Blue Paint for his signature symbols. A Brown Jumpsuit under an Orange Poncho and Orange Sash paired with Knee High Brown Boots will leave just one piece to complete his style. The Wooden Stick we chose will serve as his staff.
With costume options that veer from partially clothed to full coverage, this allows Aang to be cosplayed by males or females. For a look with less clothing, you have the choice of going shirtless and painting on his symbols or wearing just a sash over a bare chest and just painting his head symbol. Brown, wide legged pants with either colored tights or tall boots will take care of what little clothing is required for this look.
For full coverage, a yellow tunic which can be made or purchased at an online or local costume shop with a red cloak and red sash. Paired with the same bottom pieces, you will have a more female friendly option. For group cosplay, we suggest considering his wife Katara or any of his three children, Bumi, Kya or Tenzin. Other options include Hakoda or Sokka. Be sure to check out our featured pics for more style ideas. Send in pics of your own and show us you best Aang looks!
Aang is a merrymaker, adventurous and perhaps a little naive as well. Possessing a keen respect for personal independence and life, he does not eat meat and is at times quite reluctant to engage in conflict. Constantly craving the stimulation of new surroundings and people, he is often distracted and will make detours to the annoyance of friend and foe alike.
Discouraged by the weight of his responsibilities, Aang often longed for the simplicity of those people’s lives. This did not stop him from building an impressive collection of friends and contacts, spanning the four nations. A love for animals drew his attention to the different variations found in each region. Even with a carefree facade, the weight of his responsibilities was burdensome to Aang. The reality of being the last Airbender left him without peer. It was these struggles that pushed Aang to nurture his relationships with others as without him; he would be very much alone in his role.
