There isn't a "usually" on this. It depends entirely on what kind of commissioner you go with. Poke around on Ebay and you'll get a good range of Chinese sweatshop prices. Poke around on the marketplace here and you'll get a reasonable cross-section of private commissioner prices at varying levels of skill.

Save the measurements until you find a commissioner that has a good reputation and the level of quality you're comfortable paying for. Commissioners will tell you what measurements they need.
Workin' on:
Tom Petty [Final Fantasy XV] (9%)
Bondage Finch [Bondage Finch Adventures] (12%)
Melisandre, the Red Woman [Game of Thrones] (43%)

I made my costume myself, including a leather harness, and it cost me about $500. That's without paying for the labor of someone else to do it. But yeah, I agree with Mangochutney to poke around the marketplace. The best way to find out how much it'll cost is to actually get a quote from the commissioner.

I feel like it's worth just buying an snk cosplay rather than commissioning it. The materials cost will pretty much equal commercial prices;; 3DMG, however, would be more worth making (not sure about commissioning hmm)

Depends on who's making it. One commissioner might use cheaper materials than another, which would affect price. It also depends on how detailed you want it or if you want certain accommodations made.
You're not just paying for the materials the commissioner uses, you're also paying for their time, energy, and skill, plus a little extra to make it worth their while. Sewing isn't as cheap as it used to be. However, commissioners often make nicer-looking costumes that fit better because they're handcrafted and tailored to your measurements, not just generic XS-XL sizes.
I suggest finding a few commissioners, tell each one exactly what you want, and see if they can give you an estimate.

Already been mentioned, but it really depends on the labor, materials and such. For me, I'd probably go with a private commissioner on here because you can communicate with them better and tell them your needs, then with someone on ebay who just will cookie cut the costume.

I made my own, it came to a price of20$'s alone to make the clothing, so I couldn't tell you what a appropriate price range would be. >.<;
