Hey, Arkansas! I'm in Missouri. ^^ Always excited to hear of midwest cosplayers.
And the best tip I can give to cosplaying on a budget is choosing a cosplay that's pretty simple and that you feel like you could make and/or find the pieces to cheaply. Like thrift or misc. antique stores. That's what I do!
