that labor cost is HUGE!
That's roughly 12 hours of labor at $15/ hr. That's a perfectly decent wage for a skilled seamstress in the USA as well as a good estimate of time invested in a costume with that kind of detail.

My Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/penlowe I make non-fitted custom things to ship within the continental US. I only do fitted garments for those whom I can meet in person.
