Talking Cheap Cosplay Ideas Needed!

Okay, so this is the first time i'm cosplaying (I'm going to Comic-con In a few months) and I need some cheap Ideas for cosplaying. I am pretty much skint, and my parents aren't going to pay for any costumes because apparently 'I'm too old to be playing dress up' (Their words not mine don't hate).

If this helps (I'm not sure what does) but i'm 14 yrs old, male, average height and slim build, with golden blond hair and blue eyes. I'm a HUGE potterhead and whovian so any of those would be ideal, but i also like superheroes and tbh most other stuff.

But yeah, any ideas would help. Go mad. Any more info or pictures needed then just ask.

Hello, actually to be honest, while you said you are so young and with golden blond hair and blu eyes, the first role came in my mind was Daenerys Targaryen from Game Of Thrones, you know? Although it is a female role, but you wanna try? That could be sooo special~
Here is the costume I know, maybe it can help you:

Also as you prefer superhero, how about Captain American? He really looks cool.

Hope all can help. (:

There are a lot of blonde blue eyed characters out there. Some I can think of are Vash the Stampede in Trigun, Cloud from Final Fantasy VII. They can be easy to make if you hunt thrift stores, for clothing that looks like the characters. Armor for Could can easily be made form anti-fatuge foam mats, they too are really cheap.

Try Tweek Tweak from South Park? (South Park cosplays are SO easy, I love them!) You probably have nearly everything you need already.

You'll just need a green button up shirt and to button it a little wrong, jeans, and mess up your hair. To be in character, just act a bit jittery and paranoid. You could use a coffee cup as a prop, too.

Thanks for the ideas guys. I'll see what I can do. I'm still open to suggestions though, as it is still months away!

If you're a Potterhead (me too! Gryffindor in the house!), then what about Draco Malfoy? Your natural hair could work, or if you've got the extra money you can get short wigs from Arda Wigs and Epic Cosplay for $30. And it would be pretty easy to find most of the items at thrift stores (you didn't say if you could sew or not). Or I could also see you doing the 10th Doctor, although it might be harder to find some of those items pre made for cheap.

I can kinda sew-ish. But Malfoy is a good idea. Maybe what he is wearing in HBP. That looks good. Thanks!

I second Malfoy from the Harry Potter Series
As well as:
Male Trainer from Pokemon Fire Red
reference
Matt from Digimon
reference
Finn from Adventure Time
reference
Link from Legend of Zelda
reference
plus you could look into doing male genderbends of female characters (as dorky as that sounds, its acutally really fun!)

Link sounds like a good idea! Thanks! Not sure how I'd make his clothes though... the hat would be easy but I'm not sure about the rest.

Not sure what I feel about genderbends. Probably wouldn't mind it. Depends I suppose.

Seconding Link! For his clothes, this tutorial is a pretty awesome and simple way of making it.

As for his sword and shield, lots of people will make one for you for pretty cheap in the commissions section. ^^

I second Draco, Cloud and Link and what about the most recent Master from Dr Who? or the 5th Dr? Or Jaimie Lannister?

Also, If you aren't afraid of Crossplay what about Rose from Dr Who?

Johan Liebert, from Monster? Really easy to pull off, too, since he wears normal people clothes.

Costume Plan

The planning phase is over, the time for action has arrived! Talk to me like someone who is more eager than studious, but HAS done his research outside of his questions! The next challenge is to make the armor look like leather, or to make the pouch!

NEXT RANK: Add padding/styling to shoulder armor OR make the leather card pouch

Draco was the first one that came to mind for me but also Rory. I mean, ya, the hair wouldn't be perfect but he has really easy outfits and this one http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=...ecte dIndex=2 is pretty recognizable.

Since you have blonde hair and blue eyes, and slim build. The first thing to pop into my mind was Tamaki Suoh from Ouran High School Host Club.
