My first cosplay was about $300. I'll admit though, I wasn't exactly aiming for it to be cheap. I paid $56 for fabric even though I found fabric that would have worked for literally half the cost ($28), just because the color on the more expensive fabric was slightly better. I also wound up paying $50 for boots, and I spent $75 total on two wigs because the first one I bought was too short and I wouldn't stand to let myself use it. >.<

I don't think there's anything wrong with spending $300 on a first cosplay, let alone $160. If you're happy with the end result and believe that the price was worth it, then it was, regardless of the actual number. If the price tag was high, then so be it. Cosplay can be an expensive hobby, but the important part isn't the price. It's about enjoying yourself. (Cliche, I know, but it's true! c: )
