:: waterbender outfit design by pandatama :: waterbender outfit design by pandatama
I recently found out that I like designing clothes quite a lot. This is my take at designing a waterbender outfit based on those seen in Legend of Korra and ATLA.

I went for a more urban look, though, hence the less stuffy materials. Those UGG-like boots that the Water Tribe members wear have become a pet peeve of mine, so I chose ones that look more like those worn by Sokka. And yes, this is for myself, in an AU of mine and ~AkaneK, where I'm a waterbender and she's a firebender and we have an awesome pro bending team along with a friend, called the Si Wong Jackalopes <:
Yes, I have pale skin and I'm a waterbender, because screw the rules.

Apologies for my terrible handwriting. That's how it looks when I can't sleep and draw instead.

Summer Version:
:bulletblue: short sleeved inner shirt
:bulletblue: no leggings
:bulletblue: shorter gloves (only go up to the wrist)
:bulletblue: boots that go up to the ankles
:bulletblue: the detachable fur on the jacket has been removed

Edit: I changed the belt's design to one that is more Southern Water Tribe-ish in style, as the first white design was too reminiscent of Naruto characters' bandages to me. IDK why, now it seems much more authentic.

This design (c) me. Please do not use it.
LoK/AtLA (c) Nickelodeon.

Sorry, please don't. This was a design made for a personal OC and as such I would prefer if it wasn't used by others.

Looks really cool and I know exactly what you mean about the boots... You should totally do some fan art for it along with the other teammates! Maybe even having a match against the Wolfbats! :D

I'm intending to do that as soon as I force LoK upon introduce our earthbender to the wonders of this fandom, haha.
That would be plain awesome! The dynamic poses would definitely be a challenge, but it's actually a fun idea... I get to kick Tahno's ass, heh.
No innuendo meant.

Hehe, then I get to put on your leaf headband and make a fool of myself trying to look cool and failing epically....

Aww, don't say that, you look adorable with that headband! ; A ;
I could lend it to you for a photoshoot or something if you want, I barely use it these days anyway
...
Correction, I barely ever used it. But it was totally worth the price, though.

Omg thank you so much and yes you're right I look FAAAAAAABULOUS!lulwut?
Oh yessss I'd love to pose upside down from a tree cross-eyed! Can you say SEXAY?
An don't worry about not really wearing it, it's one of those things that you just love to simply have and stroke creepily from time to time me thinks...

Omg, Lina
It's awesome when you start being random like this, but I get the slight impression you might have been snorting smarties
But don't worry, I still love you. u w u

Ahem.
I just changed the belt on this design, does that make a difference? I think it looks a little more authentic, but that might be just me, so I wanted your opinion c:
