The bun should be pretty easy. Just take a piece of cloth with a decorated edge and wrap it around your bun, then tie it with a (blue, at least that's what it looks like from the picture) ribbon or string. That's pretty simple enough. I don't know what you could do for the wings. Those would take so...

You can use any kind of fabric you want, unless you are on a budget or aren't willing to pay a lot for the costume. For a simple costume, you can use a cotton, polyester, or a mix of both, which I believe is the most common.

Well, I don't know any online places, but the Yardage Town by me always has the recent year's pattern books, and Wal-Mart should update theirs regularly, too. I don't know if you can buy them, but you can look through them.

I don't know other people made theirs, but I'm planning on making mine out of a PVC pipe and wood.

Otonashi Saya's sword

Hello! I'm making an Otonashi Saya cosplay for AX next year, and I'm kind of stuck at her sword. I know I can just use one of my own swords, but I want to make this cosplay as accurate as possible, plus I have nearly a year. Now, if some of you don't know, Saya's sword has an odd shape to it.

Can somebody kick that user off? All the posts from him/her/it have been all about 'working from home'. Nothing to do with cosplay.

You could also use aluminum cans, like the soda cans. They're silver on the inside and not really that hard to work with and you can just pin it to a piece of blue fabric.
