Since this is an advertisement for a service…
In an effort to supplement my current regular income, I've decided to take on commissions for cosplay. Is there a costume you'd like to wear but haven't the skills or time to make it yourself? Perhaps a particular wig that you just can't seem to get right, or an accessory that you're not 100% sure on?
I'm accepting commissions for full outfits, partial outfits, wigs, and accessories.
Commissions will be taken on a first come, first serve basis, and will be completed before moving onto the next one. You will be made aware of any wait there may be when you ask for an estimate, just so you can be certain if you're okay with it or not. The price of the commission will vary depending on the complexity, fabrics and items (notions, patterns, etc) used, and time needed to complete the item. Also, it will depend on if it's an entire costume or simply a part of one.
In order to get an estimate, I will need your measurements, a few good photo references of the costume, wig, or accessory, and the time it is needed by. I will also need your zip code, in order to calculate shipping.
I reserve the right to refuse to take a commission for any reason.
Here is a few samples of my work, starting with the most recent and moving backward from there.
! Miles Edgeworth - Phoenix Wright
! I made the entire suit, the waistcoat, and I cut, dyed, and styled the wig myself using dye I made in my very own bathroom. I apologize for the picture not being better. The suit is fully lined, as is the waistcoat, with functional buttons and buttonholes on both things. The cravat buttons with two small buttons near the ruff.
! Taisou and Youshi - Giant Robo: The Animation
! I made both of these costumes. I used a pattern for the base of Taisou's outfit, but the body armor I had to eyeball and make it up. The sideburns were actually faux fur blended into the wig.
! Youshi's top consists of faux suede and faux fur. I used a modified pattern and had to fit it directly to the cosplayer's body. THe skirt is faux fur as well. The body paint we obviously purchased but I did paint her up.
! Calgara - One Piece
! I did not make the costume on the left, which is my good friend. The one I made is the one with the bodysuit on the right. A friend and I made that bodysuit out of latex and foam. The wig is three wigs sewn together and then spiked all to hell. I made the pants, spear, leaf skirt, and armbands out of suede, leather fringe, and, well, faux leaves and rope. (The pants lace up in the inseam instead of being stitched.)
! Black Lady - Sailor Moon
! I made this entire outfit, except for the shoes. The wig was made using foam eggs and clear caulk, and LOTS of sewing. The dress is a lined modified Vogue pattern, and the shirt is a modded shirt pattern, though I forget the brand of that one.
Drop me a PM if you're interested! Thanks so very much for looking!
