There is a convention less than a week away and I need to try and make a costume. Well, I mean, I need a back-up costume idea. Is there anything I can do on a low-to-nothing budget?

PS- This is a Comic/Anime convention. Non-anime ideas are welcome too.

Well if you already have a costume you've used for a previous convention, I'd say just reuse it. (Some people find reusing costumes annoying, but it's better than rushing a whole new costume xD)

Otherwise, look at what you have around the house and pick a character with a simple outfit that you could modify or work off of materials you already have. If you're short on fabric/dont want to go out and buy alot of new stuff, you can always hack up old clothes and use them for material. :D A friend of mine tossed together an Advent Children Cloud costume together in one night for a costume party using clothes she had lying around the house, and it looked pretty awesome for a 1-day job!

Can't think of much else to say without knowing what kind of characters you'd want to cosplay. xD

You could always make a pair of chii-ears and be a random persocom? :3

Aha I like the persocom idea. xD

Or you could always buy some random pokeballs at wallmart and put a hat on and say you're the next POKEMON MASTER.
