Pattern Help!

I've been trying to find a good place for buying patterns for costly online, but I'm having a hard time finding a good place to get them. Does anyone who has experience with sewing their own costume know of anything that might help?

Are you looking to create your own pattern? Or were you wanting to follow something specifically?

I've gotten some off sewingpatterns.com, they have sales fairly regularly and a great selection. If you don't live in the USA though shipping can be costly.

Simplicity and McCall's are becoming more cosplayer friendly and make fairly decent knock-off patterns of popular cosplays. My current project, Rose Quartz, is based off a Butterick pattern. Instead of looking for a 1:1 match for the character you want to do, look for patterns that have similar lines/seams and modify as necessary.

Personally, I enjoy the sales at JoAnn's they have fairly frequently where patterns are $3 or less each. You can order them online as well as going to their stores.
