Help request Myoe&Inari Kyousougiga

Hello, I am rather new to cosplay and would love some tips and suggestions on my first set of costumes
I would like to do both Myoe and Inari from Kyousougiga.
Of the two this is the one I am least worried about as it seems pretty simple, however I could be completely misguided in this regard.
This is the one I am more worried about. After some searching I have ran into two issues.
The first is the mask. I would love to find a blank mask of the correct shape however my initial search has been fruitless and I really don't have a clue of where in specific to look for it.
For reference
The second issue is the sword. I don't have the faintest about where to begin for making a prop sword. Any suggestions in this regard would be helpful.
The sword in question

In general any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks for reading

Fortunately kimono are very easy to make. They're literally just rectangles that you sew together. However, the pleats at the bottom confuse me a little. Is that supposed to be a hakama or something? (My Japanese clothing terminology is a little rusty.)

I know I've seen that kind of mask before, I don't know exactly who/what it represents or what it's called. It's probably some Japanese folk tale, mythical, or religious character or something. You should probably look on sites about Japanese traditional or festival masks first to figure out the name of the mask and then see if you can buy one online.

For the sword, ask in the Accessories/Armor/Props subforum. You'll get more and better answers there.
