We took black pants and ran a gold stripe down the leg. Then took solid colored sport coats and turned up the collar and pinned the jackets at the neck. Added trim on what was now the backside of the collar along the edge. Final step was to buy the wide Christmas ribbon that is on sale right now and ran one piece around the waist and another piece over the shoulder diagonally (left to right) and pin it. (Kind of like a safety patrol belt- ) For the prince we used a white sailor uniform-like the center picture trimmed it out in gold and we were ready to go. Hope this helps. Right now is a great time to buy up all that ribbon.

The easiest way is to use old band uniforms. If you are at a school you could use theirs or contact a local band uniform rep and they sometimes have old samples they will donate or sell cheap. You mave have to remove or cover schools names but it will give you a great look. You could also approach a local tux rental place and see if they will give you Tails at a resonable rate. You can go the tunic and tights route as well which can be easily made.
