kk well dun have a "walkthru" ^^;; but ill try n give u som tips. aite basicaly inuyasha costume is a kimono top wit hakama. u should proly pick up a kimono pattern at a sewin store, tho personaly id juz look realy carefuly at a kimono n figure out which parts of the patterns they sewed 2gether 2 make it look the rite way. a thread on makin a hakama is already in the forum but heres a website address http://www.sarcasm.fanfic.org/hakamapattern.html
its pretty complete n good (u rock sarcasm-hime! ^.^) but 4 inyasha, make the pants longer than normal so u can tie them off at ur ankles and make it look baggy.
im not the xpert but id say use light fabric (mayb cotton) bcoz it poofs at a bit better than heavier fabric (ex. burlap or canvas). not 2 mention its a big more smooth n comfortable. bsides red cotton is pretty simple 2 find.
if ur gonna do the wig, find 1 tat looks decent. u could even find juz a long wig nd poof it out a little n cut it urself. the ears i have no advice 4 coz ive never dun ears but check out the other threads about chi's ears, the ears r quite alike tho inuyashas r on top of his head n chi r 2 the sides.
the necklace u can make or buy (ive seen it at most good anime stores, not like kinokuniya/uwajimaya. not tat im sayin tats a bad place 2 get anime, but its mainly a bookstore n doesnt specialize in other anime stuff) iono where u r but if ur near an anime kingdom go there.
now 4 the tetsusaiga, u can either borrow or buy a normal blade (tho som cons wont let u walk round wit a sword so u gotta keep it sheathed but iono bout all cons) or u can make the fang-version of tetsusaiga. iono bout doin tat but juz use some sturdy material (iono mayb even light wood, very light!) n shape it in2 the tetsusaiga shape. now tat i think of it, wood prolly wouldnt b 2 good coz ud b carryin it all day. iono cardboard? check out the game forum (under final fantasy) n c wat they make cloud's sword out of (tat would work 4 tetsusaiga)
aite tats all the advice i got 4 ya
hope it helps ^.~

A helpful note:
The shirt Inu-Yasha wears is not just an ordinary 'kimono' type thing. If you look closely you can see there is a flap across the front that resembles part of a robe someone of a high class would wear.
