Hello ! ( > u <);
I really want to cosplay Yoko Littner from tengen toppa gurren lagann but, I'm not really sure how to start...
I have never made a costume before, and I don't have a sewing machine....But, I was wondering if someone could help come up with ways I can modify certain items instead of having to buy the costumes online which go for around 160 dollars...it's a bit much...and that's without the boots and wig...I am just wondering if there is a way I can make this costume without having to buy it ?

Here is a reference picture:

Thank you for the help !

You could probably buy plain black shorts and a plain bikini top or even bra. Then you can paint the flames on the bra. You could actually buy those and the belt at target if they still have swimwear on sale.

You can find almost all of it on ebay, clubbing sites, or even amazon!
It might not be much less than the completed "pre-made" sets, but the quality will certainly be better.

@ StrawberrySiren
Thanks for the advice ! I was thinking about that, but wasn't sure if I should paint on the flames or cut out fabric and put it on there....

@o01101011
Oh wow, this is so so helpful ! I was going to make the shorts and top, but this seems much easier. Thank you so much ! ( TT A TT )/ I am definitely going to be buying these.
