Sokka is the wise-cracking, energetic teenager from the Water Nation in the Nickelodeon cartoon and film "Avatar: The Last Airbender." Sokka lends his support to the avatar, Aang, and watches out for his younger sister and their friends. A few basic wardrobe pieces arranged in a creative manner can re-create his Water Nation garb. A hooded fur cloak can be added if the weather turns chilly.

Things You'll Need

  • Boots
  • Leggings
  • Bathrobe
  • Scissors
  • Jersey knit fabric scraps

Put on a pair of blue fitted pants or leggings and tuck the bottoms into a pair of brown knee-high boots. If you do not have leggings, you may be able to use knit pants or even sweatpants as long as they aren't overly baggy.

Cut the sleeves on a light blue bathrobe, so the ends fall between the shoulders and elbows. You can cut to the shoulder: The sleeves of Sokka's costume varies in lengths. Wear the robe tied over your leggings.

Cut scraps of white or cream-colored jersey knit fabric into 1-inch wide strips. Wrap the strips around your palms and forearms like bandages to imitate Sokka's arm coverings.

Sew the fabric to the bathrobe down the front edges of the bathrobe to the waist. Then sew the fabric to the bathrobe to create the appearance of a belt or waistband.

If you have long hair, pull it into a ponytail high at the back of your head.
