Aang Costume Essentials

Aang is wearing an iconic outfit inspired by Monk’s suits that come in orange, yellow or red. However, if you are planning on cosplaying Aang, then there are some points that you need to pay attention to, to ensure that your look is on point.

1. Aang’s Iconic Look

The best point is to purchase the costume from a trusted costume store. You can also rent the costume from trusted costume rentals near you if you plan to wear it once only. Make sure you ensure the color is similar to the one you see in the series, because sometimes, a light different in the monk’s suit color can give such a huge impact to your look. 

Also, it is crucial to include the accessories to your costume as well. We recommend you to include the iconic wooden stick since it is the one and only weapon that Aang is using in the series. Also, you need to know some details on Aang’s physical appearance including his eye color. His eyes are gray, so if you have green or blue eyes, it is recommended to wear gray contact lenses to complete the look.

In addition, Aang’s character is famous for the blue arrow tattoo on his head and hands. So, it is crucial for you to use body paint to create the tattoos on your head and hands, too. It might take extra effort to cosplay Aang, but trust us, it will all be worth it. 

2. Elements for An Authentic Aang Costume

In the world of cosplays, almost all cosplayers are looking for authenticity. And we need to tell you that authenticity can be acquired by adding small elements and essentials to your costume. If Aang is the character for your next event, then it is crucial to have the wooden stick since it is Aang’s one and only weapon, which is also known as an Airbender staff.

Also, we recommend you to wear a wooden beads necklace, belts and also the leather pouch on your waist. We can assure you that if you adhere to the correct and recommended guidelines on how to cosplay Aang, you will have the chance to win the best costume category. 

Tips for Aang Pose and Character

If you notice in the series, Aang is an airbender with a playful, peaceful and determined personality. In reality, Aang doesn’t really like to fight and he still somehow feels afraid that he’s not up to the task of being an Avatar. Based on how he is described in the series, it is important for you to carry out his personality while you cosplay him. 

Also, he is famous for many poses throughout the series. And since cosplay events are full of photo sessions, then you must remember to pose as Aang in every photo. Some of the famous poses of Aang include the battle pose and meditating pose.

While we know that there are so many other characters in Avatar that are great for cosplay as well, you can also ask your fellow Avatar fans to cosplay as an Avatar group cosplay. You can be Aang and your friends can be Katara, Zuko, Toph, and even Appa.

Or, if you have budget constraints, we recommend you to go hunting for Aang costumes at thrift stores.
