I don't know if this is where i should put this.

LEFT PERSON

ALSO what fabric would be the best to use.
I was thinking Fleece but in the summer it will be hot soo that wouldn't be a good idea

Is there any other fabric that is slightly cheaper then fleece and not be see through ??

Guessing it your talking about the character on the left. For the button you could carve a base out of foam and then cover it with model magic to smooth the edges and make it look uniform.

For the fabric I would go with cotton. It's light and easy to sew.

for the shirt thing; something soft? cotton, maybe?

and the button i'd use clay or something, just make sure it's durable because it looks like it's prone to be snagged/bumped into(specially if you're clumsy like me)

Don't use fleece, a twill or a slightly stiff cotton would be best (not too stiff, but something that'll hold its shape), model magic would be good for the button, as it's very lightweight and it wouldn't make your costume sag too much.
