talk about being expensive ... my first cosplay was as Illyria (Angel) and my near screen accurate (I say near because a fabric used on the OG is not available anymore so we had to substitute) was commissioned through Hollywood costume designer Shawna Trpcic who designed the original costume.
It cost me about $900, I didn't do the make up and I couldn't do the contact lenses due to having corrective lenses otherwise that would have cost me another $500 -_-
My 2nd cosplay as Blondie (Sucker punch) ran me at $600 and change ... I seem to have a habit of not choosing cheap priced costumes lol
