This last weekend I had the opportunity to meet up with a lot of incredible friends and reminisce about some amazing memories.
One of the things people commented on a lot was comic con--understandable as it was just a week and a half ago and is fresh on our minds-- and how they couldn't do the costumes like I do. Comments like that make me sad.
I'll let you in on a secret:
Aside from props and a few minor costume pieces, I've thrown *most* of these costumes together in less than an hour each, with most of the items being things that were already in my closet.
**Be 👏 resourceful **👏: biggest tip I could ever give you for cosplay
My grandma and I made the fez and the Newsie bag, and my Dad and I made the sonic screwdriver by hand.
The tweed jacket was borrowed from my grandma's closet.
The Newsie/chimney sweep shoes and 10th doctor converse were found at thrift stores.
The only items I've bought were the bow tie, suspenders, and my mom got the chimney sweep broom for me. .
Literally, my costumes are that simple. Don't be intimidated by big, fancy costumes. Just have fun! Believe in yourself and your costuming!
