I'll agree with Acostory's link. Folkwear patterns are rather scary priced but they are awesome! easy to follow and very clear instructions! I use Folkwear to make my Hakuma and will later for a few other projects but remember patters are reusable and I'm sure you or friends could use the pattern again if not for cosplay or making something nice for yourself.
It's worth the money, trust me ;D Check with your local fabric stores, if they're a small one they might carry it or have the ability to get Folkwear in. Denver fabric does and every so often it goes on sale or I can use a cupon ^^
SPOD- here's your "more feathers!" Cake or Death? DEATH PLZE!
