For a pattern, try stopping in at your nearest sewing store (like a JoAnns or Hancock Fabric) and checking the pattern books. Make sure to [u]bring a picture of your costume[/]u so you can compare it to the clothes in the books. That's where most of us find our patterns. You can even start looking online by heading to simplicity.com, mccalls.com, or burda.com. Those are the companies I usually buy patterns from. You may have to modify the pattern if you can't find an exact match, in most cases you won't. But if that pink dress is the one you're making, it shouldn't be too hard to find pieces for.

My best advice is to not think you have to find a dress pattern. It's okay to find a shirt pattern and a skirt and sew them together later once you figure out how. It's probably easier to try and find a dress, and by all means go ahead, but if you can't don't think you've failed! <3

As for the ears, try some white and pink FunFoam. You can buy it at pretty much any craft store. Get a clear or blond colored, basic headband (at the store perhaps, or try Claire's, some kind of accessory place) to put them together. Some people use string and have a hair pin attached to the ear to keep it proper on the side of your head. Either is fine and both work~

I hope this helps!
