Easiest?

L from Death Note, hands down. It's blue jeans and a long-sleeve white t-shirt, and some skillfully applied eyeliner. If you don't have a long-sleeve white t-shirt, you can score one at the nearest Walgreens or Wal-mart. You don't have to make anything at all.

The most difficult thing to find would be the wig, and you can even get that from Amphigory. I'd try either the Matilda or the Piper, both in black. Since you're in Australia and you didn't say when your festival was being held, I'm not sure if they ship to you or if you'll get it in time, but there are similar wigs on sites like Cosworx.

I see you have him as your avatar, so you must know something about him. Since the costume itself is so easy, you will have to do your best to be in character.

Umm well since your 13 I imagine that you dont have a job, so I dont know how much your lack of money is.

Ok. Again, as I have said before to many many people, you must choose what you like first. Since you are looking for an 'easy' cosplay there is basically no such thing as a basic 'easy' cosplay. It depends on what your skills are and what you can do. I assume your not going to make this so your looking for an easy way out. As this_chick said, go with L, but BEWARE. If you go with that, make sure it looks damn good because no one will see you amongst the sea of L's.

I can't really give you any ideas because I dont know what series you like or anything like that. COSPLAY IS NOT ABOUT JUST DRESSING UP. I hate it when people say 'cosplay is JUST like halloween' because its not. Its more broad then that. You need to fully embody the character and that is what makes a great cosplay.

Easiest thing to do: Find a character you like/know, make a list, and then look at their costumes. Whichever you think would be the easiest, post your list on here and THEN we can help with making or buying the costume.

^ Sa-chan made quite a few good points. Cosplay is NOT Halloween. A big part of cosplay is "play". You are essentially becoming your character.

Anyone can wear a costume, but when you really play the part well, you will shine in a sea of people no matter how many people are wearing the same costume as you. It's best to cosplay a character you know and love than to wear a cosplay because "it's easy" or "it looks cool".
