Know it's not exactly cosplay, but still you guys are probably the best to ask.
As everyone knows, Halloween isn't far off. Since I haven't dressed up or anything for years, I've been feeling the itch. Thing is, don't know jack about sewing nor do I possess anything to even start. And I'm not going to go out and buy some shitty looking Halloween costume premade. I've always preferred to make my costumes.
Thing is, I can't think of a lot of things right now that would require little to no sewing. What are materials that you guys like to work with that are fairly cost effective, but can still look good when you pour time into them? What types of costumes do you guys make that require little sewing?

Hey /cgl/ not a regular here, but I am putting together a costume for my first con, and have hit a bit of a road block. I'm not sure if there is any way around this particular problem, but what the hell. I finally found the correct jacket I need for the costume http://www.canada-goose.com/products-page/arctic/langford-parka-2 However, it is neither practical nor wise to spend what that jacket costs. I'm looking for between $50-150 USD. (I live in a hot climate and an expensive heavy coat is out of the question and budget) So, real question is, Any suggestions on where to find something like this or that looks similar on a budget? Any help is appreciated.
