I would never say that. People have to live within their means. Expression is not just for the rich or talented. If I ever decided to wear a uniform at a convention it would have to come from Ebay. I cannot make one myself and don't have the money to pay the prices they are getting from the sell-off of uniforms used in the series.
Even that wouldn't be within my means...not in money or talent. Honestly, I am amazed at those who have ANY capabilities to make their own uniforms even if it doesn't come out right because I doubt I could even do THAT.
I'd just have to wear my little "Legate pin" and call it done.
