Hand-made or Bought Cosplay Outfits

Posted 8/8/07 , edited 8/8/07
I've always wanted to cosplay before, but when hearing my friends planning out the designs for their cosplay outfits, or talking about how they've only got one more thing to sew, I'd kind of feel out of place with the purchased outfit when everyone else makes their own.

For those who have cosplayed before, do you make your own Cosplay Outfit, or do you buy it? Maybe even buy seperate peices to put together?

I'm sorry if this has already been posted before!

Well, as long as you can afford it, I guess there's nothing wrong with purchasing the outfit. However, I noticed the ready to buy outfits are usually inaccurate or look cheap, so it's really up to you. Anyway, I guess it's fun to some people to make their costumes themselves.

Your topic hasn't been made before, but I do think you can generalize your thoughts into these threads instead. Too many cosplay links!

Cosplay Links
Does anybody else here cosplay?
