How big are the bells, and do they need to make noise?

If they NEED to be bells then I'd suggest looking in a Christmas store/dollar store/craft store...my friends found some killer ones last year for a dejiko costume at a craft store.

If they don't need to jangle then you could make them out of paper mache. Blow up a balloon and drape the paper mache over it to form the shape...when it dries just pop the balloon and paint the mache...

Or you could try making your own using some kind of plastic or metal, if you're adventurous enough.

If you can wait a few months, giant plastic Christmas ornaments are great. They're lightweight and come in a variety of metallic colors at most super craft emporiums.

^_^ thats a good idea!....but they don't have those stores in england, i'm beginning to thing the hardest place to cosplay IS in fact england, because of the lack of materials!
oh well

okay, it's not so hard when you know where to find the things that you need, but... it's still hard, you know? XP

Any craft store will do... who are you cosplaying as though?
I cosplayed as Dejiko from DiGi charat and she has giant bells. I was just curious. ^^

I bought a pair of big bells in a shop that sells party accesories and stuff like that.

And they make those ringing sounds too. :D

They cost around... $25 each...

Yeah, they were kinda expensive since it's really good quality and since they were big... I could've bought smaller ones to a lower price, but I wanted the BIG ones. :D
