I'm not trying to make a tradition of dressing like Anime characters, I swear. Ivy just happens to love anime, and right now she loves Avatar: The Last Airbender (I'm not gonna lie. I think it's pretty cool too--the cartoon, not the movie). So, I made Appa and Momo costumes for Ivy and Maren.
I've never sewn clothes, so I wasn't sure if I could do it. I certainly didn't do it perfectly, but the costumes worked out well enough, I think.
I used these pictures to make the costumes as accurate as I could. For those who haven't seen the show, Appa is supposed to be a flying bison. Momo is a flying lemur.
We really should have gotten better pictures, but we were too interested in candy.
