Sewing Commission Info: Last Updated: February 3, 2016
- Sample of my Work:…
- Actual Price Quotes:…
- Work in Progress:…
- I work in a clean and pet free environment.

I sew custom cosplay costumes (especially male clothes, kimono, hoodies, military jackets, capes, gijinka, & ninja gear) and I sometimes make lightweight props. Most costumes I can finish within the month you are slotted into.
I do not currently make fitted jeans/pants, body suits, tight fitting female clothes, leather, pleated skirts, hoop style dresses.

It's easiest for me to make costumes for people about the same size as me  (B34B" W31" H38"). But I almost always have a friend I can use as a model. I will let you know if I can handle the project (I have lots of patterns.) 

--Inquiry Step--
Send me a message(from wherever) with the following:
1. Character name, series and/or reference photos
2. Basic Measurements: Your Height, Chest, Waist, Hips or your men/women's clothing size to get a general idea of how much material I will need. If I already made something for you I don't need this at this time.
3. Deadline: Date or convention you need it by.
4. If you want me to quote shipping charges* provide the State or Country you live in. Pickup is free.

From here I will let you know if I have time or the correct patterns to complete this for you and give you an estimate on cost (materials + labor) and completion time. Please let me know if you have any specific details here.

(*Note: I will ship internationally, but it may be expensive. Example: Shipping charges to Canada are expensive! A 3lb package to Canada is $30... but I get an cheap rate on domestic US shipping.)

--Creation Step--
- Decide which items you would like to have made.
- Payment for the cost of materials (1st half of payment) is due before project will be started.
- Actual Measurements will be needed (I can measure you or I will give you a list of measurements I will need)
- I purchase the materials (or you can provide them)
- Create the costume
- Progress updates will be posted on my Tumblr (…) Please contact me ASAP if you see something you want changed/fixed.

--Payment --
- Final payment (2nd half of payment) for labor is due when costume is delivered or before it is mailed out.

Payment types accepted:
- Paypal (+ transaction fee of 2.9% of amount)
- Square (pickup only. Mastercard, Visa, AMEx, Discover) 
- Cash (for pickup only.)

Southern California Local Pickup: in person pickup is available. You can try it on to make sure it fits before you pay me of course. 

--Other terms:--
- If you don't like what I made, ship it back to me within 7 days (you are responsible for return shipping charges) & I will refund you 100% of materials & labor (shipping & handling chargers are non-refundable.) Costume must be in unused condition.
- quotes are valid in the year it was quoted only.
