I would be glad to have the money to blow on all my home cosplays. XD

Heck yes! I'd finally be able to make a full set of armor out of worbla and buy all the fun casting mediums and fiberoptic fabric (plus an entire workshop dedicated as my craft room)

You bet. After paying off my student loans and other similar things, I'd invest in all kinds of new gizmos to make stuff with. I probably wouldn't bother cosplaying if I didn't make the thing.

YES. Absolutely. I might try to commission something like props just because I suck at those, but I'd invest in a good sewing machine and serger and still do everything myself.

Oh hell yes. I would make cosplay fabrication my fulltime gig. I'd have a shop with a CNC machine, 3D printers, a vacuforming table, and every tool you could think of.

Deathscythe would finally go from dream to reality!!!!

Actually, I would buy way better and more equipment with a larger apartment, then finish fashion/costuming school so I could start full-time making costumes for others and myself. I plan on being a professional costume designer/seamstress/comissioner (and am slowly starting already), so this would equal "Business startup dough out the wazoo and no interest!" money.

Of course I would. For me, the creation is most of the pleasure. I'd be able to afford the tools and materials of highest quality, that's all.



And it'd be glorious.

I would. There are few things that I've been eyeing online, but I'm hesitant to pull the trigger because of costs. Unlimited time with an unlimited budget would be stupendous.

If I won the lottery, I'd get to do MORE cosplays, and hire people to teach me the crafts I don't know, like animatronics.... *drool*

Absolutely! I'd buy the coolest equipment, and be able to practice a lot without fretting about wasting materials. I suppose I might commision certain parts if I really didn't want to learn to make it, but making the costumes is my favorite part of cosplay, I wouldn't have as much fun just buying & wearing them personally, even if they looked really great

Here's a list of things I'd do if I were to win the lottery

1- pay off my credit cards
2- get much needed work done on my car
3- invest in a decent house
4- I'd still choose to be employed
5- check out conventions at surrounding states
6- ?
7- Profit

I'd pay off school loans my credit cards. And put a good lump of cash down for my car loans. I'd probably help my mom a bit too. I'd still definitely be home making cosplay though. I might just do one really bad ass all out cosplay with rich fabrics and stuff n.n.
