where can you buy or make a Kimono and Yukata

Hello, this is Shadow Leaf Nin,

this is my first time so give some slack anyway, I was recently looking at pictures on deviantart and some of the pictures haad Kushina Uzumaki cosplay with a Kimono/Yukata,

the reason I am posting this up is to ask anyone,

Where can you buy a Kimono online?
where can you buy a Yukata online?
Do you know where I can buy a Kimono/Yukata?
Are there any stores in New York City that might sell a Kimono/Yukata?

Do you know how to make a Kimon? (full instructions/full tutorial)
Do you know how to make a Yukata? (full instructions/full tutorial)

I want to know how to make one so that I can go to Connecticon 2012 in July on the 14 to the 15th and wear a Kimono/Yukata for one day.

Thanks again for the help, please PM me at Shadow Leaf Nin I want to know the answers to these questions.

I am trying to figure out what the material of the pants in this picture is.


I don't know a lot about fabrics, but if I had to guess I'd say it might be vinyl? I don't know. Can anyone help me find a blue fabric with stars that is close to this material? Maybe some sort of stretchy leather or something... I don't know.

Does anyone know where I can find the pepsi nex logo in a decent size (at least 900 x 1200)? I'm trying to make my Blue Rose cosplay, but cannot for the life of me find the right image.

A fursuiting friend of mine recommended www.mendels.com for buying fur, would you mind adding it to the list?

Where to find fake/non-prescription glasses

Alright, so thanks to the blog Project Cosplay, I've found places where you can get nice (not tacky) fake glasses for cosplay and thought I'd share!
I personally recommend Zenni Optical. Follow the directions on that blog post and you're golden for a nice, classy looking pair of glasses for very fair prices! (Just ordered some silver-rimmed ones for $14 myself, and am very excited!)
Be cautious with Goggles and Glasses because I've read some very bad things about them.

I hope this is the correct place for this, but I'm looking for a specific type of shirt. I'm ordering this dress for a masqurade dance and I need an undershirt for it, but they no longer sell it. They offer a couple versions, but i'm not sure if either will look good. So Were can I find, white, sheer/lace long sleeve shirts? Preferably with awesome cuffs? Below are the dress and the versions they have. Thanks for the hope and my apologize if this is outta place, but I wanna look pretty for my first masq. dance.
