The leg flares are one of the easier parts of the costume to make yourself. Take a look at this great diagram from Rogue9:

Get a 7/8" wood dowel, and cut it into 4" lengths. Round the ends off and paint them with silver spray paint.

For the flare holder, I bought a used army duffel bag for $9 and cut it up:

Here's a great tip: get a couple of popsicle sticks, and glue them to the inside of the flare strap. When you put it on, the sticks tuck into the tops of your boot, and prevent the flare holder from slipping down!
