Making Excalibur's costume is going to take a lot of improv, especially since he really isn't a 'human' character.

Below are some pictures that I took at A-Fest this past year of an Excalibur cosplayer. You might use this for insight? I'll try and see if this cosplayer has a page on Cosplay.com or even DeviantArt. If the links to the images don't work, let me know.

Since I haven't done this cosplay myself, I can only make suggestions without experience to back it up.

1- For the top, I'd modify a white button-up shirt or make one. Make sure the buttons are on the correct side though. Assuming that Excalibur would be considered a male, you wouldn't want the buttons to be like on a woman's blouse. As for the circle lace thing around the neck, I suggest looking up circle skirts and modifying that.

2- As for the hat... I guess it all depends if you're wanting to make an Excalibur head or just making the nose thing to put on your face. Either way, the hat is an exaggerated top hat. A cheap (looking) one could be made with poster board rolled into a cylindar with the circular base/edging thing.

I hope that helped :3
