What was the most you ever spent on a cosplay/lolita outfit?

I just ended up dropping $200 on Spider-Gwen, once all the accessories were accounted for.

>$200
Uhm
What?
>>
>>8742052
Most of my bigger cosplays end up falling in the $150-$300 range. I usually don't spend more than $15/yd for fabric because I have a few local stores that are accessible, so it keeps the price lower than it might otherwise be.
>>
>>8742052
I just spend 1,200 buying new from Baby a dress, underskirt, blouse, bag, tights, shoes, bloomers, wrist cuffs, necklace, bracelet, headdress, and parasol. I have no self control. I walked out of the store and immediately went, "oops". But it looks pretty at least ;-;
>>
Maybe 300$ I was attempting moving wings and failed miserably.
>>
>>8742052
1 grand in total for like 2 for cosplay.
>>
about $250 and the majority of it was for the prop. And it was my last cosplay before retiring into lolita
>>
A coord I'm planning for Christmas has gone up to about $800 now if I include shipping and petticoats, though to be fair I'm layering two main pieces, one of them being a print that was relatively popular when it came out. I need to make a new hat though, which is probably going to add another 100 if I want it to not look like shit.
>>
One of my first costumes I did by myself was my most expensive because I spent so much on materials. I didn't get coupons in the mail and bought at small, local craft stores without doing price-comparing. Plus I fucked up and ended up having to buy more material, at full price of course. It all ended up being something like $500-$600 for, with what I know now, would cost maybe $250 tops.
>>
I've spent $700 on a single OP. Around $1200 is the most I've spent on a full coord.
>>
My cosplays at most cost $300 even with full armor.

Lolita, on the other hand, will cost me at least $300 per coord...
>>
>>8742146
same anon. Since lolita counts in this thread I'll put my two cents into it. My coords run between $90 (USD) to about $200; depending on the dress and what I can incorporate into lolita such as leggings in the winter (in CO). Sewing my own accessories such as berets and super basic underskirts.

My accessories can be versatile so I don't have to shop so often for them.
>>
Around $650-700 for one AP JSK. Thank you customs.
>>
i paid almost $300 for a new blouse. never again. at least, not for something like AatP. i'll save that cash for a Moitie blouse with a unique design and buy basic frilly blouses secondhand.

>tfw falling out of love with AatP's unimaginative boystyle items
>>
I usually try to keep it under 300, but I've spent over 1000 on a single coord before.
>>
One of my first (and favorite costumes...) was around $500.

It was all fur and vinyl, and has some armor. I was completely lost so I did a lot of testing. My first resin cast gems, and an adventure into lighting.
I could probably remake it for around $200 now.
>>
I'll easily break $700 for a full lolita outfit - new brand dress + shipping/customs will suddenly put a $250-$300 dress up to about $400-$450, I like decent leather shoes which are usually at least $100-$200 on special, and then all the other bits of clothing (hair accesories, blouse, bolero, tights, petti etc) aren't expensive, but add up at $5-$50 each.
>>
>>8743566
But its a traditional name.

>>8742059
Possible if it is being commissioned.
>>
>>8743581
Tbh, it was a bit less than that. $100 for the suit, $50 for shoes, and maybe $10 on various props.
>>
Over $350, in the early days when starting out cosplaying, though partly because
>lost a $30 package in the post, couldn't get it refunded
>buying a lot of prop tools and sewing notions
In the end, the cosplay-specific materials cost a little under $200 (though I never ended up finishing it because I dragged out its creation so long that I improved in sewing and crafting and didn't want to fix my early fuckups).

Cosplays now average $50-$200, though I recently did one that was $320:
>Spandex House fucking sent me two yards of the completely wrong fabric and wouldn't respond to my queries to send it back to have it replaced
>bought three different brands of bodypaint to try matching the reference
>>
>$380 for Stormtrooper armor
>$100 for the boots
>$210 for a blaster kit with extras to make it more screen accurate
>$50 for other materials

And I don't even have the armor in yet. But soon.
>>
A cosplay I'm working on now is about $700. A chunk of that is worbla that won't entirely go to this particular cosplay and leather. Also bought my first lace front and that shit adds up. Usually I spend $75-150 on cosplays which is still cheap compared to what spent in fashion school on garments.
>>
>>8742052
$1100 for FemShep armor plus gun from EvilFX props (would have cost $100 more if I had purchased them separately)

This is an example of one of his FemShep pieces (mine is the standard black, rifle is the same though) - http://evil-fx.deviantart.com/art/Fem-Shepard-N7-Armor-1-177361333
>>
$500 for a digimon suit but it was totally worth it.
>>
I spent more than $1000 with my first coord and I still owe 200 to one friend and 50 to another. Feels bad. At least the coord went well.
>>
>>8743722
Anovos Kit? Only TK armor I know of that was ever going for that cheap. If so, fuck yeah, I'm waiting on it too.
>>
>>8746215
My bro

So it's OK to make fun of?
