Didn't know where else to turn to, so I figured I'd ask here, in hopes of good responses!

I'm cosplaying Agito's team outfit from Air Gear at Nekocon.
Was wondering if anyone knew where I might be able to buy an eye patch like his, or if I'm just going to have to end up making it ^^;

Here's a reference photo!

Thanks in advance!

hmmm...you could probably make it youself with like, string and gauze or something. :P

Try doing an ebay search. You may not find one exactly for that character but, you could probably find on similar to it.

Otherwise you could commision cosplaymagic if you really wanted to.

Speaking as a former pharmacy technician, I've seen the bandage before, but not as part of an eye patch. It really shouldn't be a terribly hard accessory to make. Just attach string to either gauze or an appropriate bandage.

We sold two types of eyepatches. One was the standard pirate black (though higher quality than found at costume shops) and a bandage that was basically a bandaid shaped like an eye-socket, called an occlusor.

Go to a drugstore and CVS and look around, I got my friend a more traditional eyepatch there once for a Xigbar cos.

Like Jinx said it's also a very simple one to make on your own. Just sew a small flat pillow and decorate it to need and attack it with some sturdy elastic for comfort. It looks like it wraps around the back of the head in two places so you'd want to put it on before hte wig if you have one.

Hmm.. Alright. Kinda figured I'd end up making it.
And thank you guys for answering my next question, of suggesting how to.

You're the best <3
