I'm new to this site, bear with me.

So, for Portcon Maine, me and my friend were planning on going as Amaterasu and Rao. She's already making her Amaterasu cosplay, but I can't make clothes for my life so I decided to buy one. I can't find any Rao cosplays on the internet. None. There are no tailors where I live and I can't get anyone to make me a cosplay.

Please help. :<

Welcome to the site, hun. :3

Okay, well, I'm not sure if you have Paypal access (very easy to get if you don't, and you don't need a credit card) but if you do, you can commission your costume from someone over the internet. Best place to look is the cosplay.com marketplace, which is one of those nifty purple tabs up above. There are lots of people here on this internet who'll be glad to do up a costume for 'ya.

Now, commissioning is shady business. There are very good commissioners and then there are scammers, a terrible breed of people. XD This thread (http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=105758) is a wonderful resource when it comes to looking for safe commissioners, plus you get to see other people's completed costumes! Be sure to ask for lots of quotes, because some people make costumes for cheaper than others.

If you DON'T have paypal access, then be sure to ask some commissioners you like if they accept money orders, etc.

You could get it commissioned. You should check out the Marketplace to see if someone will make it for you:
