Is there a specific site that sells 1/6 scale stuff? I looked for awhile on the internet and I couldn’t find anything. I really want to avoid making my puppet’s costume myself because I feel that the lack of quality would degrade my animation.

You could try "one sixth warriors dot com" forums. I haven't been on that site in ages, but if you browse around, they might have some recommendations.

I mostly look on eBay in the Action Figures - Military and Adventure category, for accessories.  Try 1:6 scale clothing. Not surprisingly it's best with military uniforms, seems to be a big market for that.  But I've used a suit made for a Winston Churchill figure, and another for Sun Yet-Sen, that are well made and far better than my sewing.  Also find chairs and random props, but only occasionally the ones I need, so most things need to be made still.

Barbie dolls and many action figures are 1:6 scale. 

Hello,
Depending on what you wanted to spend I have custom-made costumes (and adapted action-man clothes) for quite a few people's personal stop-motion projects. Usually when they want something quite specific and can't find it to buy online.
Let me know if you're interested :) and you can find me on LinkedIn if you want to see what experience I've had.
