Alright...I have been making cosplays with stuff I find around the squadron and home, but now I want to actually find parts to put a cosplay of an Actual Character. But there Is a catch! I want to cosplay as Sakuya Izayoi! Obviously (for most people anyway) first thing that comes to mind is it is a female, cross dressing?....not so much...I am actually going to do a genderswap! Long story short Sakuya Is the Head Maid in the Scarlet Devil Mansion....so!...Using the design and color scheme of The original character, I am going to put together a Butler outfit! Not I am brain storming at the moment, But i dont want to waste any time! I still dont have a clue what I am doing so I would like some help please...I have looked around and pulled up some things toe help me out....

Original Character:

Here are some pictures I found, not sure what the design should be, but I kinda Like the long tailed coats, Im planning on taking whatever style and then adding Sakuya's color scheme, and certain features and characteristics of her design (Like the roman Numerals on her apron, and the "Red Magic" on he sleeve)
Butler Styles:

Im still on square one and completely lost and little experience with cosplaying, but Im willing to put as much effort as it takes to make this a success!

There's a Touhou thread in the Video Game Costumes section and someone mentioned genderswaping some characters, you may get more responses there. I think a butler idea is great, I would effectivly just go for the same color scheme and your own butler design, vest could be one color, shirt underneath antoher one of Sakuya's colors, perhaps have a string of knives around your arms or slung across yoru chest and not thigh like Sakuya.

I've actually already done this. I don't have any pictures up in my gallery of my male Sakuya though :<.

If you need any more help on this, let me know!

I'm working on a male Touhouvania Sakuya for Ohaycon. :3
