Snow Bunny Studios (OPEN) - August 2012 Commissions and Later

Need high-quality cosplay but for a fraction of the price? You've come to the right place!

__________________________________________________ ________________
Introduction
__________________________________________________ ________________

Hello, I'm K. D. Thompson and the owner and creative mind behind Snow Bunny Studios located in Greensboro, NC. I have over 10 years of cosplaying and costume making experience and have been doing custom commission work off and on for 8 years. Snow Bunny Studios opened officially for business in 2009.


My passion has always been helping a cosplayer to create the perfect recreation of a particular character - whether it's anime, video games, manga, film, books, comics, and beyond. This is the same level of perfectionism, quality, and attention to detail I apply to my own personal cosplay. Knowing that I was able to help you to bring your favorite characters to life is one of my greatest rewards and why I continue to work as hard as I can for my clients.

While I specialize in meticulously created, complete costumes, if you need single pieces, that can be crafted as well. Over the years, wigs have been one of the most popular items requested from Snow Bunny Studios. Whether its hair falls, pony tails, or full wigs, I will do my very best to work with you and create exactly what it is you are looking for. No matter what your need, if you are curious about a particular project, Email me for a quote ( kenya.kdthompson@gmail.com ).

When you are seriously considering a commission, or even a quote, please send a few things in your request:

Please supply clear information and follow all instructions given. If you do not, your request will be ignored or you may be asked to resubmit your inquiry.

You can either fill out a Commissions Inquiry Form

Or, you can email me with the information below:
~ Your name:
~ Attach/link reference images from several angles (minimum front, back, side, & 3/4 view at large sizes - No google/yahoo/etc. image search links, No Fan Art, and No Cosplay or Store Photos. No Youtube links - screen cap what you wish to show me):
~ Name of character and series:
~ Due Date:
~ Your Budget:
~ Basic Measurements (Bust/Chest, Waist, Hips, & Height):
~ Location:
~ Other information about the costume/wig/etc. you'd like to include:
Please allow a minimum of 6 months depending on the complexity of the costume or pieces you wish to be completed.


You should build in about a week or two into the due date for delivery. This way, if there is a delay in the post, it will arrive well in time for the convention or event you wish to wear it to.

Payment & Shipping
__________________________________________________ _________________


Pricing can vary greatly from commission to commission. This depends on the level of detail and materials chosen by the particular client. Whether you have thousands of dollars or a couple hundred as a budget - I am flexible and very willing to work within a price point or set up payment plans to meet your individual needs.


I only accept payment through PayPal. The final quote is based on the amount of time required to complete the project, the amount of skill/difficulty involved, and the materials needed to complete the project. An estimate of shipping cost will be included in this quote as well.


A minimum of half (1/2) the amount due for the commission is due up front at the sighing of the contract.


Another quarter (1/4) of the final total is due one month before completion of the product.


The final balance due (If you have been making minimum payments then 1/4 or less if you have paid more), is due 2 weeks before the costume is due to ship. Please note: The wig will not ship until this final payment is made.



Shipping will be done through the USPS. If the client wishes for rush shipping, which is not the default shipping I use, those costs will be covered by the client.

Studios News - Post SDCC 2013 Commission Changes
__________________________________________________ ______________________________

With some of the recent changes that have taken place in my life over the past few months, I will be seriously cutting back on the commissions I will be doing. Some of these changes have already gone into affect and posts have been made in reference to them. However, I thought it would be best to ensure that everyone knew exactly what was going on.

Those that contacted me prior to my leaving for SDCC have been grandfathered in under my previous commission rules, but starting July 23rd, I will not be taking full costume commissions and will be seriously limiting the number of smaller commissions I will be taking. I now also require a minimum of 6 months advanced notice on all commissions. This may change in the future so that I can return to the older commission rules, but when that will happen I do not know.

After I hurt my ankle last winter, I still have a couple lingering commissions that need to be completed that I have been struggling with. Plus, I have a back log of personal and business costuming related projects, I would like to clear out that cache as well as continue to more forward with my plans to grow Snow Bunny Studios to better serve your costuming needs in the long term. Sadly, this means for the time being, I will have to limit what I do in order to complete those project. My goal for Snow Bunny Studios is always to provide you with the best quality and highest accuracy possible. I also wish to provide my clients with more ready made items in my Etsy shop. Hopefully, this change in commission status will be a temporary thing, and everything will be up and running back to normal soon. Again, commissions are not closed, they are simply of a very limited number.

If you are interested in a Snow Bunny Studios product, check out my Etsy shop. If you can't find what you're looking for on Etsy and wish to ask me about a commission, please contact me either through email or use the Commission Quote Inquiry submission App linked above in "Commission Basics".

Thanks everyone for being so amazing and supportive to Snow Bunny Studios and Happy Cosplay! Stay tuned for more amazing things soon.
