You can find cheap red gloves anywhere these days and just cut off the fingers.
As for Ryu costume. You can try to find a white Gi at ebay. They have some nice ones for good price. Now as for the black belt, you can buy the real deal at ebay, but I'll kick your butt for it, since thats disrespect and hishonest. Many of us work hard to optain such a thing like getting a black belt. In other words my of us earn it. It's also bad to put the knot of the any karate belt in the middle of your waist, it means you can challenge others who have black belts into a dual (I learn that the hard way) and you might not be skilled enough to fight one. Besides so much cheaper to make a wannabe black belt out of cheap black material. The same goes for Ryus' headband.
Overall you pick a very simple and cheap character to work with. Good job. I have seen first timers who pick the most difficult costume to make , because of that they spend a lot more tim and money than they have anticipated before.
