 This looks pretty epic.  I love the lighting!   How much time do you take to make these suits and what's the budget for such materials? Uhm... miss Riddle? Do you mind if I use the Wasp pose of a picture I'm making?   I promise to credit you!!!!

this costume was a little pricier then I had hoped because I paid to have the pieces chromed by a professionally. I don't do a lot of costumes, so I have money to do the costumes I want to do right. But I try to be as thrifty as I can by shopping on amazon, ebay and good will stores.. and TONS of fabric coupons.

  Good tips. I might try that the  next time I try cosplaying Spider-Man.  I kinda had to make do with a Spidey mask, gloves, and shirt, blue jeans and red, black-webbed shoes.  I'll see if I can find those fabric coupons.   Thanks!  And, uh, so do you mind if I use the picture for my picture?  Well, I wanted to borrow the pose. I wanted to make sure I got proper permission...

If you'd like a suggestion, I know that different fabric stores will offer coupons if you sign up for their mailing lists. Also try their websites; they'll often advertise deals. Additionally, take advantage of seasonal deals--even if you can't find something you can use now, you may be able to get something now for use later.

I know about this sort of thing because (1) I used to be married to a part-time costumer and picked up a few tricks, and (2) I'm interested in trying my hand at cosplay myself, but I'm on a very small fixed income (read: disability payments), so I've learned a lot of money-saving tricks.

And thrift stores in general are sometimes a good place to look for both fabric and outfit parts that can be modified. Another thing is to hit garage sales, especially with a friend or three. I used to know some folks that were dealers in the SCA, and they'd always find the most interesting things at garage sales...

All right, you asked for it! <evil grin>

Keep in mind that I live south of Seattle, so here's what I either have access to or would have access to if I had a vehicle and/or lived closer...

JoAnn Fabrics: very good fabric store, with lots of craft-related stuff as well. Frequently offers classes in sewing/jewelry making/etc. www.joann.com/

ArtCo Crafts: limited fabric selection, primarily arts & crafts (jewelry making, painting, beading, etc.) artcocrafts.com/

Michael's: HUGE selection of craft items. Some fabrics as well. www.michaels.com/

Univ. of Washington Surplus: Good place to find props for mad scientists, because they sell used chemistry lab gear. www.washington.edu/facilities/…

Boeing Surplus: Good place to find all kinds of tools, airplane parts(!), and whatnot. Used to have an outlet, now sells on EBay. www.ebay.com/dsc/i.html?_ipg=&…
Washington State Surplus Sales: As with Boeing Surplus, you can find almost ANYTHING here! www.facebook.com/WashingtonSta…

Display & Costume Supply: Biggest costume store in WA. Has LOTS of costumes, make-up supplies, props, etc. Fun place to window shop if nothing else, and offers costuming classes. displaycostume.reachlocal.net/…

Greenwood Space Travel Supply: Wanna be an astronaut? Check these guys out. Almost as good as NASA! www.greenwoodspacetravelsupply…

Archie McPhee's: Got kitch? These folks do! Gotta see them to believe them. www.mcphee.com/shop/

Faerie Fingers: makes patterns for anime costumes; also does nice work costuming. www.faerie-fingers.com/

Gargoyles Statuary: I list this here because there's a fellow I've met, Victor Moray, who makes vampire fangs from dental acrylic. gargoylestatuary.com/
I know of another fang maker, but she's based out of Portland, OR if I'm not mistaken, and I don't have her contact info. Her name is Chris "Tooth Fairy" Carpenter.

Online Resources I've Found:
The Bone Room: located down in CA; I found out about this place through MythBusters. If you need human or animal bones for any reason, try these guys. www.boneroom.com/welcome.aspx

Dapper Cadaver: LA-based Halloween store. www.dappercadaver.com/

Cinema Secrets: prosthetic and SFX make-up supplier that I discovered through SyFy's Face/Off. www.cinemasecrets.com/-profess…

Etsy: Online store for various craftspeople. Discovered this because there are several steampunk jewelers whose work I liked. www.etsy.com/

This alone should get you and anyone else looking for costuming/propmaking/SFX make-up supplies at least get started...
