I am definitely the type of person that can’t resist a good bargain. Personally, I believe the best part about cosplay is scrounging up different clothes and mixing them together to make something unique and great! Today I challenged myself and drove to my local thrift shop to spend 10 mins and $10 dollars to see what I cosplay I could come up with.
Come on this $10 dollar cosplay journey with me!
Bulma from Dragon Ball Z
Definitely had to improvise a little bit but the end result turned out pretty great! Here is what I ended up getting:
The signature Bulma look includes –
- Pink dress
- Brown belt
- Purple scarf and socks
- Red bow
- Brown glove
- Blue shoes
What I ended up buying and putting together –
Unfortunately I could not find a pink dress so I settled with a pink shirt and a pink skirt.
Next, I was surprised by the brown belt I found because it was perfect!
For the purple scarf and socks I bought a purple shirt.
I cut up the sleeves and bottom to put around my neck and ankles!
Last finishing touch was her name on her shirt. In the video, I was trying to be quick and I ended up taking a white piece of paper and writing her name to tape on the shirt. I encourage you to get fabric to sew or stitch the letters on her blouse. If I was actually going out, I would take five minutes to do the same!
And there you go! Bulma from Dragon Ball Z. Add a shoes, a wig, pouch, red bow and you are ready to go!
This was so much fun! Now I challenge you! Go to a thrift shop and take 10 minutes and $10 dollars to see what you can come up with. Please comment, share, and follow me on my social media for more content!
