For me cosplay is about having fun and get a chance to show off your love for a character. And most of us have limited resources to spend on costumes.
I already have a focus on using recycled materials and now I want to make a few characters mostly out of clothes and materials I already have.
A few tips:
- A good idea is to choose a character with distinct features, like poison Ivy's red hair and green makeup.
- Makeup always goes a long way, spend some time looking at makeup tutorials online.
- Your costumes do not have to be screen accurate (unless you are entering a serious competition, but then you would spend more time).
A fast cosplay I have made in the past is the Wood elf, took me less than a day to put together and additional cost was about 20$
