I made this costume for Halloween. At a glance it looks easy enough to nail but trust me, every part of this costume (every) were a real trouble to acquire!
I had to tailor the pants and the sash myself, I did the claw, the mask was done by a custom artist and it molds my face perfectly, shoes are of a good brand, wig is quality, you get the idea.
Overall I think it cost me around 500$ total.
However I think I did a good job, I checked the other Vega cosplay on other sites and they were shit compared to mine...
