Time and money management become closely linked when you break down the parts of your cosplay into components. After youve made up the list youll need to do some research on what methods youll be using to make your props your jewels your wig etc. Once youve decided how to make EVERY PART of your cosplay you can accurately estimate the cost of the cosplay. Using the component list you made which entails EVERY SINGLE ITEM you will need to complete your project create your budget. Look up the cost of items dont guess. When it comes to things like fabric where the price will vary you can still look at the average cost per yard of the type of fabric you need. The more research you do the more accurate your estimate will be. With your budget worksheet complete youre halfway done The research can be time consuming but its far more time consuming and costly to switch to a different plan in the middle of your project because something didnt work out how you guessed it would. Putting together a budget worksheet will allow you to determine whether the intended cosplay is something you can afford something you are capable of and something you have time for.
