So this will be my first time actually cosplaying and I'm not really sure where to start. :/
I found a tutorial for the jacket already but I'm not sure what to do about the wig, frog hat, pants and contacts.

Questions;

1) What wig (+ wig color) should I buy? Looking to spend around the most of $50 or else I might go over my budget.

2) Should I see an eye doctor before buying contacts? I think I need to know my "eye size" first as these will only be for cosmetic purposes.

3) Where can I find affordable contacts? Recommended pair for this cosplay?

4) How should I make the frog hat/what material should I use? I was thinking of basing the hat off of this (http://adelade.deviantart.com/art/hack-hat-tutorial-88890432) tutorial.

5) How do I make pleather pants with the white stripes on both sides? Would I be able to get away with just plain black pleather pants?

6) Where can I find the Varia symbol (http://files.myopera.com/kheemyvanilla/albums/1125221/bc9c335eb930.jpg) for the left arm?



Thanks for any help and advice.

Well, I'm not very sure about the other things, but I think you should get one of these following wigs.
They're cheap and could very well fit your desired character.
I personally think the first suggestion is the best choice for this particular character. Seeing that Fran has slightly longer hair, and very pale green colored hair.

- Light Sea Green (http://www.hellocosplay.com/light-sea-green-short-cosplay-wig-p-1282.html)
- Just green (http://www.hellocosplay.com/green-short-cosplay-wig-p-1281.html)
- Neon Blue (http://www.hellocosplay.com/neon-blue-cosplay-short-layer-wig-p-1372.html)
- Just green (http://www.****This Website Link Has Been Removed due to Recent Forum Spam****.com/product/Green+Wig+(Short,Wavy,Fran))

And as for he contacts, here's a website (http://www.cosplaylab.com/proshop/cosmeticlens.asp) where you can browse through verities of contacts.
You can also get it in prescription & it tells you the diameter of the contact lens.
I recommend you go to an eye doctor first, just to be on the safe side.
And BTW, I think the "Aqua" color would best fit Fran's eye color.

I hope this at least helped a bit, sorry if it didn't!

Best of luck,
