My boyfriend and I are going to the London anime expo as Syaoran and Sakura from Card Captor Sakura  Cheesy

But Sakura's outfit has a jacket with a hoop skirt effect at the bottom. Since I'm such a total newbie I don't know what material to use for boning the edge so that it stands out by itself. Can anyone help a n00b-in-need?

You can get plastic boning from the notions section or a craft store. It comes on a roll like ribbon, so they can cut a length of however much you want.

You can also buy spools of wire in the tools section of wal-mart, but you need wire-cutters to get it to the right length. It's super cheap and you get a ton of it and it holds its shape better (in my opinion) than the plastic boning from the store. It is heavier though, and awful for boning bodices. For hoops though, I just love it.

Plastic tubing from the hardware store is cheap and looks great, plus it will bend to allow you through doors; you can also you foam tubing. Here is a very helpful tute: http://thedreamstress.com/2009/08/the-hoopskirt-how-i-made-it-and-what-i-would-do-better-next-time/
