View Full Version : Vanitas Cosplay Commission Or Gary Oak Cosplay Commission :]
04-21-2012, 02:15 AM
UPDATE: I've added a picture of each of the the characters I want to cosplay as! So yeah! :] Hey! Um... I'm kinda new at this.. So forgive me if I sound noobish! *ahem* I've been searching on eBay for a Vanitas cosplay and they don't seem to have any! (They have Vanitas remnant but it looks crap! XD) I was wondering if anyone could make me a Vanitas cosplay with the incomplete or complete (haven't decided yet.) x-blade! Otherwise I was thinking about cosplaying as Gary Oak... Which I could maybe make myself I'm not sure! Anyway! If anyone who does make commissions could explain to me how they'd make it and more detail and stuff then yeah! Please do. :) I'm kinda worried about being ripped off or something! :bigcry: So YOU HAVE TO WIN MY TRUST! :skidude2: XD
This is Vanitas with the incomplete x-blade!
And this is Gary Oak!

Just to let you know (since your new) post a reference picture of both..i know the majority of KH lovers will know who vanitas is, but the non gamers wont and im sure everyone knows who gary oak is, but still lol im sure gary oak will be super easy though..most that stuff you can get at a thrift store, or any store with clothes for new stuff. id do the wig for you if you go that route.also, i CAN do the vanitas wig as well if the person that ends up commissioning it doesnt do wigs..

Believe me buddy a vanitas outfit will cost alot if u want it to be in super detail. Im getting one comission by someone here too same vanitas too. Just depends on your budget

yea that too..since your new ill warn you now (since i didnt in my last post). see the price on ebay you mentioned? how much was it, like one hundred something? maybe 200? yea that will NOT happen....no commissioner in their right mind will charge so cheap for such a detailed cosplay..the material alone will be almost 100..the work and time it takes will cost way more on top of that..most people that look for their first commission, look on ebay and see between 100-150 for a costume and expect commissioners to do the same..but thats cuz with ebay you get what you pay for..low price, low quality..

That is very true and sometimes it doesnt fit ao when u get a comission one its to your bodies exacr messurements as it will fit you perfectly too. Again just depends on how much your willing to spend. Because 1. U pay for materials and 2. You pay for comissioners time 3. You pay shipping cost too. Like my comission im paying $267.

For gary oak you can pretty get everythig at a local store. The only thing you couldn't find locally is the pendant I could make that for you if your interested.
Also for the boots you can buy brown boots somewhere locally or online for pretty cheap and just add the black bands yourself. I'd kind of be a waste to get those commissioned in my opinion.
