It kind of seems easy how to make one... like get a rectangle of fabric or something, add whatever lace, beads, trims, whatever you want to it, add some ties and there you go? I've never made one but it seems quite simple.

Personally, I think blue looks a lot better. I've seen some people use purple, to me it just doesn't look right.

How do you mean for the sleeves? Like the shape, or to get the color?

I made that costume a couple years ago actually, what I did was just cut out red cloud shapes on broadcloth, and painted a white edge design on it, and just sewed it onto the black cloak :P Hope this gives you an idea or something.

The coat? Just buy a pattern to make a coat, or a shirt pattern and just modify it make it longer. It's not too hard of a concept if you really think about how to make it, etc.

The boots, just keep looking in all kinds of different stores. Thrift stores, department stores, boutiques, whatever.

There aren't quite patterns for that kind of thing, I know some people kind of draft their own patterns with newspaper, or just find existing clothing and modify it. It wouldn't be so hard to modify a shirt for her, buy the short shorts, and the shape for everything else looks kind of easy?

I made a yuna... I just put like a pinkyrose color dye in a spray bottle, hung my sleeve up, and sprayed the dye on, it looked good after. Like make a diluted dye solution to do the upper part, and just mix in more dye slowly to get it darker as you go down..

it just worked well for me :)

eBay sometimes carry things :D Maybe order from Cosplay.com or if you really willing to spend money and don't need it for a while, katiebair.com could even style it~ Those are about the only places I would know of. Depending where you live, look for wig/costume shops too.
