There are places you can buy costumes, but the most amazing ones are made by the cosplayer. Of course, many of the worst cosplays are also hand made. It takes some cash to do it well, but anything you enjoy is worth the cost. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the “pros” from the casual cosplayer, but it doesn’t really matter.
