A talented cosplayer creates hilariously “low-cost” costumes that are absolutely brilliant.

You might believe that to cosplay, you need a lot of expensive supplies to create your costume. However, as Anucha Saengchart (aka Lonelyman) demonstrates, all you need are some simple materials and a little imagination. His hilarious Low Cost Cosplay film, in which he records how he turns into characters from pop culture and beyond on a budget and in a short amount of time, has become a huge hit

On the Low Cost Cosplay Facebook page and Instagram account, each post is a four-act costume. Saengchart inspects the tool (or tools) he’ll be using to build his look in the first column. It may be a piece of fruit, body polish, or even ketchup and French fries at times. He takes a shot of his work in progress in the second panel.The last two panels show a side-by-side comparison of his work and the original picture.
