Resizing my shirt for cosplay?
I put together my Cecil Palmer cosplay, and i think it's pretty good.....except, the shirt i have is big on me...i don't have money to buy a shirt or anything.....
how do i make it fit me better without it looking bad?

Depends on how big and style of shirt and where abouts it doesn't fit (shoulders, waist, etc).

Okie kokie! You're best bet will just be to take in the side seams.

Here's a simple pictorial tutorial for that:

My concern is that after this the shoulders are still going to be too wide, but you can judge this once you've taken in the sides.If they are (and if it won't ruin your costume) then you can put a dart between the shoulder blades or one on top of each blade. Some men's shirts have a kinda plait anyway.

Here's a slightly more complicated tutorial which will give you a better general fit, but will depend on your skill level:
