I'm trying to make the collar for a Taiwan cosplay, but I don't know how; it's flimsy and falls down. I need help on making the hair accessory too!
A video and pics would help a lot since I'm a visual learner.

I've got a collar like that on my Elric cosplay, so for the collar I would suggest some sort of plastic. I didn't put my Elric cosplay together so I cant tell you how, or where to get it, but It's a very flexible thin plastic. Sorry I'm not much help there DX

For that hair accessory (http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2492/3930655474_17a0e57db4.jpg&imgrefurl=http://flickriver.com/photos/allen-chan/tags/hetalia/&usg=__NGvshZX6CKM-R_hcv20bcGQLUMc=&h=500&w=375&sz=100&hl=en&start=44&tbnid=sJVIRv_pcCd2HM:&tbnh=154&tbnw=179&prev=/images%3Fq%3DTaiwan%2BHetalia%26hl%3Den%26biw%3D10 24%26bih%3D483%26tbs%3Disch:10,1100&itbs=1&iact=hc&vpx=301&vpy=150&dur=1234&hovh=259&hovw=194&tx=162&ty=201&ei=MbViTM-JJYH7lwfv_6SRCw&oei=1bRiTNT3IsL6lweLm7icCQ&esq=4&page=4&ndsp=11&ved=1t:429,r:7,s:44&biw=1024&bih=483) I would think that you could use a flower (like the fake ones you can find at the stores) and (since it looks like your pic has tassels on it) attach a bunch of pink tassel strings. If you can't find a flower you like, find a bunch of different flowers that can be taken apart and glued together to add all the accents to Taiwan's flower.

Hope I helped a bit

Thanks! Not sure where I can get the very flexible thin plastic, but I'll look to see if I can substitute it. I got the flower and strings, but I'm not sure how to make it stay on my hair. x3

Sturdy interfacing or craft fuse should work fine. If not, add some featherweight boning to the collar.

Also, here are some tutorials for fabric flowers. You could play around with one of those designs or use a fake flower. It really depends on what you like.

Thanks; I'll try looking for it!
Now I just need to figure out how to make it stick on my hair. x3
