BK: In the middle of the season, the kids come out of hiding and lead a daring invasion. This gave us the opportunity to return them to their iconic looks while updating them with a heroic flair. The armor for Appa and Sokka and the Water Tribe men came from unused toy-idea submissions I did for the consumer products department. Aang’s asymmetrical outfit for the end of the series was inspired by Shaolin monk garb. I wanted him to look like a simple, humble warrior-monk like the great performers in Shaolin: Wheel of Live - vulnerable but strong. Concepts by Bryan Konietzko.
