I'm going to be cosplaying Cardcaptor Sakura in November! However, I'm trying to find used shoes and a used staff to buy or borrow or rent or SOMETHING, because it's very very expensive ._.

It really would probably be cheaper to make your own than buy one. Check out some tutorials and they will give you a list of materials used and how they made it. Props can be daunting, but sometimes they are easier than the costumes...just remember I said sometimes^^

Yes I have to agree with Benihime and Mehdia. If you feel you have to skills to make it, DO IT! It is SO much cheeper that way.
The pole itself can be PVP pipe, which is less than a dollar for a huge piece at Lowes/Home Depot.
And you can make the "head" of the staff out of Fimo or some other form of clay which is also dirt cheep at Joanns. (Go in with coupons if it happens to not be on sale)
It shouldn't cost you more than $15 to make. =3 I'm sure I have tutorials along the front page for this particular project, I will double check!

@ machi: I made my staff for my sakura cosplay and it was pretty easy to make ^-^ I made it within 5 days whilst also making the outfit leading up to a con.

If you know what to make it out of and how to make it (AND also have reference pictures, it'll help) I'm sure you can do it and Squall-sama has provided some tutorials too ^-^

here's my staff: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3290622/

So I originally was going to be Mario!Madoka for AX next year on the last day, but after talking with my friend we decided that we wanted to be the Black and White Mokonas together! I sketched out some ideas and showed it to him, and so far he likes the idea. Now we just need to start gathering stuff together. :'3

Oh man, if only I had got their information, but at SakuraCon this year, I ran into a Black and White Mokona pair!!! They were the most adorable things ever!

Here is a pic of them, they must show up at every SakuraCon and I only noticed them this year. XD http://www.deviantart.com/art/Mokona-s-2011-207507826

I think going as Makona's for AX is an awesome idea! I will definitely see you guys there! I am still debating on what I am going as for AX.... I know I will have Yue for sure... but I am thinking of possibly starting another Sakura dress.... It depends on the funds.... I keep eyeballing the "Dragon Queen" dress though... hrm....

This is very helpful, thank you! I'm working on my Chii cosplay and still debating which version to get, since I am not too sure of how the weather will work out.

This may mean we will see a renewed interest in Cardcaptor Sakura costumes.

I've been wanting to do another CCS cosplay and I recently came across this manga art. That outfit is so adorable but I'll probably just use my star staff again because I don't really feel like making a new staff.

What about commissioning someone to make that new staff or ordering it online? I know they are easy to find on ebay. Just a thought. Or maybe even removing the top piece and just making that part? If that's at all possible? I can understand not wanting to bother making a whole new staff though. XD

This is actually pretty exciting. It means everyone who cosplays obscure characters from CCS will have a chance at being noticed now!
