Can you give some more info? What kind of output do you want to achieve? How big do you need it? How do you want it to mount- on roller stands, off of the light, etc?
Also, are you talking tungsten? Fluorescent? Materials needed will be different for either.

I want to reach an effect of sunlight that goes through the curtains.
But i want it to be white-coloured light (sounds strange, I know).
I want to make portraits with it. So, let it be 100x80 (approx.)

Also, are you talking tungsten? Fluorescent? Materials needed will be different for either.

And what can you recommend for making portraits?

Prim if you are looking for a cheap softbox go to the amvona softboxes. They are well designed, can load 2000 w. and... are cheap in ebay. They come with accesories like ring, light moddifiers, etc.
