Hi i'm new to cosplay i was wandering if any could help me by sending links, patterns, and tips.

For patterns, I would check out Simplicity's costumes...they have a pretty good Star Wars rip that with a little modification would work for Inu's suikan and kosode (the top two layers :D) and for my first pair of hakama, I modified belly dancer pants. Both are very easy to sew (about the only thing tricky is figuring out the flap on the suikan.)

As for tips - :D get good fabric...don't get broadcloth (that cheep, thin cotton that's at every fabric store.) Linen is good...that's what my new one is going to be (my old was a type of raw silk...the exact name escapes me at the moment.)

Thanks For the help.

There is an actual pattern for hakama, and other asian/japanese costumes/clothing sold here...
Hope this helps!

Actually, my understanding is it's not really a pattern...just a set of instructions on how to measure to create the hakkama. It's fine if you're really good at sewing and the like, but I wouldn't recommend it for someone new to costuming. :square:
