Cosplay Help Please?!

So for my daughters 12th birthday she wants to go to her first Anime convention, and both of my kids want to cosplay. The problem is, I couldn't make a costume from scratch if my life depended on it and I'm having a hard time finding pre-made in their sizes. I was hoping someone could give me some info. She wants to be Wendy and he wants Natsu. My kids are petite, My daughter weighs just over 60 lbs, and my 9 year old son is at 50. they are healthy, but their metabolism is insane. Thank you in advance!

Thank y'all for all the tips. so far by what I can tell, I can buy the natsu outfit. the Wendy outfit is another thing and I may just find myself learning how to sew a dress in her size. The only props will be the exceeds and they already have those, that's why they chose their chars. If I can get it situated and worked out I'll show them off when the time comes. (If it doesn't look like I dressed them in garbage bags). (*^ワ^*)
I find the best way to cosplay is envision each piece of clothing the character uses would be in real life. Then I look for that equipment on amazon, then Google shopping. if it's a prop I go to home depot and buy the base materials. It also helps to keep your eye out for materials that pass you by. My uncle gave me a used bomber jacket and I repurposed it into an attack on titan jacket by purchasing A.O.T. patches on Amazon and sewing them on. The jacket is amazing, I use it every day and it makes for an easy cosplay setup
you can find stuff on amazon or if you want to do it yourself than first find a pic of the costume and start buying the materials my guess is try finding a clothing shop that takes measurements. sorry this is all I have 😓
you can also check ebay!! quality is hit or miss but if you read reviews you can find nice ones. since they'll grow you don't want to spend too much :)
@Shiskra that seems like fun!
