Even if it's white and it's cotton, you can use rit dye and dye it in the washer

You can also find things at consignment stores and theatre-style shops (I'm not sure if you're in Texas or in the local DFW area, but there is a very popular costume shop off of US75 that might sell things like yellow skirts).

As far as what cosplays to go with, there are threads on this topic, but in short: go through an image gallery, i.e. Anime Characters Database, and find something that looks good to you and is within either your skill level or your commission budget. Go from there.

Technically any store that's a thrift store... and with the summer season starting, stores like Old Navy, Goody's and such might have something as well!
