Hi there! Please come check out our panel - Cheap and Easy: How to Thrift a Cosplay. We talk about how to choose a cosplay suitable for thrifting, what to expect when you get to a thrift store and how to modify garments even if you don't know how to sew with supplies you can get at any craft or fabric store. We also go through several examples of costumes that we've thrifted.

You'll be surprised how much you can make! We had a lot of ooos and ahhs last time we gave this panel. We take a lot of questions and have a lot of samples to show.

I'll be there!! You guys are awesome at finding costume pieces that work so well, I need to learn thriftiness from some masters instead of trying to make every piece! ^_^
