Out of curiosity how much would people spend on a cosplay outfit and how many outfits would you have. Another question I have is do you keep your outfits or do you cannibalise them for other cosplay outfits?

I guess I'll go along with this cosplay group talk here.
I currently know of no cosplayers around me, period. I mean there's one but she just went off to college and she didn't cosplay as much.
But all my good cosplay friends (I wish we were all into the same things so we could be a group...) are older than me. I'm 15, turning 16 in less than a month, whereas my best cosplay friends are in or just out of college. I find that I like hanging out with older people better. For instance, I'm probably the youngest out of my new group of friends from the CLAMP photoshoots from Otakon.

I'm hoping to get a lot of work done on my contest costume for Archon this week now that my house guest has gone and I finally got the fabric for the main part of the costume.

I was watching Hanasaku Iroha when it suddenly hit me how I was supposed to make the kimono collar. Uh wow. Well looks like there's a chance of this Zoroark Gijinka going somewhere again. Who knew anime could be useful for something like sewing. XD

Suddenly feeling really shy about wearing my cosplay at the weekend. I've put a lot of effort in, but I'm worried they're going to look terrible... also they involve very short skirts.

Is it bad that I want to do a full-on photoshoot with one of my horses when I finish this Valkyrie costume? I've wanted to get them involved in my cosplay for years now but never had a costume that would require a horse (well, a normal-colored horse, at least).

Seriously contemplating re-scheduling my cosplay so that my Van Fanel Cosplay falls on the same day as the Visions of Escaflowne program.

And experiments in confusing the heck out of my coworkers continue. Today it's half of a tooling leather belly so that I can spend break tracing/cutting armour plates. It'll be interesting to see what sort of reactions I get. XD

Wildly variable. I think the least was around $70 for one that I had a lot of the materials on hand (wigs are expensive <_< ), and the most to date has been around $400 -- but I tend to be particular about materials and pick things with lots of fabric. I don't usually recycle/cannibalise components for other things, mostly because there's rarely something that WOULD translate to the new project -- and because I wear costumes until they're pretty worn out. Did it once with a yukata I redyed, but that was it.

I certainly don't think so! Then again, my horse-owning friends have used them for photos before (historical costuming, but still) ... and one has been threatening to put me up on a white palfrey for years after conning me into making a corresponding costume. ><
