Zuko is a character from the Nickelodeon show Avatar the Last Airbender. He is a character I grew up watching and grew with him, is character arc is known as one of the best in any animated show and for good reasons. Zuko is such a compelling guy and he was actually one of my first attempts at cosplaying back in High school! I was happy to be him again in my own vision.
I designed my Zuko based off how he looks in the comics after he has been Firelord for a bit, I did add my own changes to it though. The fabric was a satin blend for the red, black satin for the sash and gold brocade for the accents. The armor was done out of worbla and craft foam and the resin gems were cast by me. This took about a month to complete!
I made Zuko to wear to Anime Expo in 2016 but I actually wore it first to A-Kon as a test to see how I liked it! We had an Avatar group and it was just an amazing time.. I loved being Zuko and would love to revamp this cosplay one day!
