Madoka Magica School Uniform(closed for mean time)

NEED THIS BY THE DATE OF THE 29TH OF MARCH. NEED ASAP.

I am sorry if I offended anyone, I am sorry. Just a bit frustrated and just posted a thing about it. I'll be a bit more friendly about it.
Once again sorry.

Hi there everyone, I am attending a convention of SakuraCon and need a Cosplay that will fit my size. I am willing to 70 dollars due to expenses for ride and a hotel.

Examples are here in this album:

You're not going to get a Madoka uniform for $70 in less than a month. It will not happen.

Some commissioners have nothing else to do some the date isn't too much of a problem for some, but the price your asking for the cosplay...? You'd most likely get rags to wear. I'd say at least put down $110+shipping on the costume.

But with only giving the commissioner a monthyoure making it a rush order and that usually makes the price shoot through the roof. XP

Also, acting like we're all out to get you and caps lock'ing is not very good if you want anyone to help you out. Obviously no one is looking to be scammed. That said, try shopping for decent fabric before you act like that dirt amount is going to cover materials, labor, skill and time. There are plenty of people who are more than willing to at least pretend to be respectful that we want to work for. I'm so sick of the rude people who talk down to commissioners like we're slaves to be commanded. You can't expect anyone to want to make anything for you if you have no appreciation for the craft or the time put into it. You want a cheap cosplay? Go to eBay and get the cheaply made, non-custom work. We won't miss you.

Not only is that WAY too cheap to get quality work from a COMMISSIONER, but you can't even get one on EBAY for that low. If ANYTHING....NEVER go less then ebay on budget..That's more then just insulting. that down right messed up that you'd even think that someone should take their time and skill to make something, for a price that can't even afford the garbage ebay spits out.

MelinCoimas, I'm right there with you. I can't even stand reading commission wanted threads anymore.

1. There isn't a plaid print that even closely resembles that pattern. Therefore, it would have to be done by hand which is time consuming itself and pleated skirts take a good bit of fabric. Fabric itself being $9.99-12.99. PLUS either bias tape ($3.99/per pack) or fabric paint in order to make the plaid design.

2. The fabric for the outer most top is about $12.99/yard PLUS the same amount of fabric at about $5.99/yard for the lining. PLUS black bias tape red bias tape and lace and fabric for the bow.

3. Fabric for the undershirt being $9.99-12.99/yard unless you make the top just as one whole piece.

It takes 2 maybe 2.5 yards of each fabric for the blazer for the average sized person and about 3-4 times the amount of fabric of your waist measurement for a pleated skirt being that pleats overlap and all that.

On top of that, there's thread, zipper/s, buttons, etc

The fabric alone, easily goes over $70. =/

Sorry if it seemed rude but I wasn't seeming to be rude at all. I am a bit stressed since my friend was willing to do it for me, she bailed on me for doing it but I'm sorry again. I didn't mean to offend anymore. I'll change it ASAP since I was just a bit frustrated with the fact I was bailed on.

I'm guessing your new to getting cosplays commissioned and haven't made one yourself, so it's fine. I'm sorry that so many people jumped on you. ^-^'
It's just that commissioners get a lot of stress and one thing that is very irritating is when you get people asking for a cosplay, but pretty much want it for free. : P

Anyways, you've pretty much gotten prices it's gonna cost($100-$160 I'd guess), but you'll still need to find someone to make it and find out shipping costs.

Everything depends on your commissioner, so good luck finding one that's perfect for you! :3

Yeah, I am new since I don't know how much stress it puts but I can I can relate to commissions for Artists but I still feel bad for jumping on people and seeming rude when I was just irritated. But I just need the shirt since I do have the skirt already since it is really easy to make but the shirt seems like I am going to drop kick it. But thank you for your kindness. I am going to keep looking.

You may be able to find someone who has a used costume for the price. If you need to keep it under a budget. But making a new one will cost a lot more. I am currently making a Madoka uniform for myself and the print I will be using for the skirt cost me about $12.99 a yard plus shipping. The fact I wanted the fabric to be continuous I purchased 3 yards to be on the safe side if I did any mess ups. Hope you are able to find someone. <3

Hey guys can we please stop jumping on people who ask for commission on too low of a budget. She doesn't need 5 people attacking her and saying the exact same thing. If her budget is too low leave her alone

Also, I'm booked until after Sakuracon or else I would try to do this for you. Sorry and Good luck!
Try checking goodwill for similar parts (skirt, sweater, button up shirt)

I wish I could like post on here because I totally agree with everything Ichigo has said.
Checking in the goodwill is a good idea! I was actually looking around for stuff there to use for the Madoka school uniform and actually found some skirts that were close to the uniforms skirt.

I will be searching because I am pretty sure if I can find one my size since I'm not the skinniest person around.

If the price is too low just don't even bother to comment and give her a speech // Maybe she cant afford outragous prices at least she is being honest up front

and I would say goodwill plus thrift shops ^^

It's not that we're trying to attack her (I at least laid out the material costs and I know some of us could've worded our posts better rather than lashing out at her and what not), but it's the fact that she is seeking a commission, for a full costume, for less than the cheapest market price for one that is made in a sweatshop overseas.
