Okay, so for my Taokaka (http://ui09.gamespot.com/2952/cb005taokaka.png) cosplay the character has three holes in the outfit for her tail and hair. I wanted to use eyelets for this but I'm not sure if eyelets are made that big. I need the inside to be 2 inches or bigger so that the braids and tail will fit. If anyone knows where I can buy eyelets this big or of another method so that the fabric for tear or anything when I cut the holes that'd be awesome!

Some curtain fabrics have eyelets that huge across the top for the curtain rail to go through. I've never seen the eyelets for sale on their own in normal fabric shops, but maybe a specialised curtain shop sells them?

I found some at Joann. They are plastic clip on ones but they'll work. They're for curtains and upholstery.

I used the plastic ones from Joann's on mine. I just hot glued them together, and they fit my tail and hair well.
