Status as of 9/20/13: I am accepting orders for due dates in December and beyond. I’m taking time to prepare more ready-made merchandise stock in November and December. My next con will be Katsucon and I’m happy to hand-deliver any of those orders at the con. Thank you c:
This is my informational commission post that will be permanently linked to on my main page for ease! Thank you so much for all the interest and support thus far, and if you’re new- here is what you can expect if you want a cosplay commissioned by me!
I’ve been cosplaying since 2009, but costuming my whole life <3 I am a trained seamstress with a bachelors degree in fashion design. You can be sure that when you commission me you will receive a professionally constructed costume that will last and look beautiful! I am comfortable working with many different fabrics, including PVC and spandex. I specialize in sewing of course, but I also make jewelry, foam and sculpted accessories, certain footwear, wings, and certain wig styling.
If you’d like to see my full portfolio of cosplay, please check it out at my ACParadise account ~*here*~!
There are a few things I need from you in order to make our commission partnership work! c: I prefer that you live in either the NYC, Philadelphia, or surrounding area, or be able to get there! In some cases, I need to do at least one fitting with you. In other cases, maybe not- but for most complex cosplays, fittings are highly important! Feel free to email me about your commission ideas even if you’re not local, and we’ll see if it’s possible! Also, if you are for whatever reason unable to take your own measurements, we can work it out to do that together too. Once I give you a quote, payments can be split into installments (only for orders totaling $200 or more), but I require at least one deposit made before I buy any fabric. Payments are by Paypal only or in person if convenient, and non-refundable seeing as my materials are not able to be returned once bought. My prices will be based on the material costs and the work put into them. I will make my prices the most competitive that I can offer for you, but I can’t sacrifice the quality of work that I specialize in in exchange for a lower price. When you begin to plan your commission, plan at least 2-3 months ahead or preferably more in case my schedule at the time is already quite full.
I hope this isn’t an obvious additional point- but do not under any circumstance wear my commissions and say you made it. That’s not cool, dude! On the other hand, if you are happy with your cosplay- feel free tell everyone where you got it! ;)
Please contact me by email at (stephanieelise . design @ gmail . com) I always try to answer my tumblr asks, but when it comes to commission requests, I can’t guarantee I’ll reply unless you *email* me. Anyway, I truly hope I can help to make some cosplay dreams come true <3 Feel absolutely free to send me any of your ideas for a price estimate! Serious inquiries are appreciated, but initial emails are not binding ^u^ Also, please allow up to a week for me to reply and figure out your quote. In your email, please send me the following information without missing any of these catagories:
