How to Cosplay on a Limited Budget
Cosplaying is not as expensive as many make it to be. It really depends on your budget and how you work with it. Instead of giving up cosplaying altogether, here are some tips you can count on when cosplaying on a limited budget.
Check your closet
Choose characters with no props
Reuse your wigs
Use craft foam and cardboard
Modify, modify, modify!
Learn how to sew
You don’t need the skills of a tailor, but learning how to sew will save quite a bit of money. With a little hard work and effort, you can increase your proficiency enough to even sew costumes. However, not everyone has the dexterity or interest to learn to that level, so if sewing and drawing patterns is not your cup of tea, you can still learn the basic skill to sew small things. By learning how to sew, you can make your own hair accessories, plush toy props for characters like One Piece’s Perona, and sewing on appliques, patterns and accents to your costume without having to pay extra for a professional to do it.
