So I'm doing a Buneary Gijinka for my first ever cosplay and have had this super freakin' awesome buneary hood commissioned(I don't trust me with a sewing machine):

So now I'm just trying to find someway to make a skirt that will match up >_<

I found this bubbly fur that's kind of puffy

But it's white and the ears are more creamy yellow.

So my question is how do I make everything match up?

All ideas are welcome!

You could dye the leg warmers thingys.
I'm sure they have a light yellow color.

She's right! You could totally dye them. If you go to a Michaels Art Supplies Store or Hobbie Lobby, they sell dyes that are perfect for just that. Find the closest color to what you want, but use extra water so that the color comes out much lighter. That way you can dye it once, let it dry, see how much darker you need it, then continue the process however many more times you have to until its just right. Just to be safe though, I would snip a little piece of the material off first and use it for a test run. There's no telling how the material will react to the dye, and it's better to be safe than sorry. I hope that helps. Good luck!

I'm sorry, :(
Maybe you try making those, they don't look to hard to make.
