Exclamation Can you HIRE cosplayers?

I was wondering if there was a site or something that could HIRE cosplayers.
I wanted someone to cosplay as me and my friend's original characters.
They're not from an anime, and they're just our own characters.
Their designs are pretty simple, too. Not that complex.

So I was wondering if people did this?
And how much would it be?

I'm just curious, and I'm just looking for answers,
so please don't yell. I'm really clueless and I would just like to ask. ; u ;

Try deviant art forum where you can hire artists/models etc. Well I suppose you can but if you're using the word "hire" people are going to assume you are paying them or at least providing the costumes.. so what exactly is it you want these people to do?

Only this, and nothing more.'

Thanks! I'll try that!
And yes, I'm willing to pay them since I doubt anyone would do this for free. Ahaha.
And all I want them to do is pose. Like a photoshoot. And that's it.
And maybe even record a random funny video for the lulz. (:

I'm sure there are people on this site that would be willing to do it as well. I know that personally, I love seeing people's OC's.

There's also a site called model mayhem where you can hire models for whatever you may desire.

Yeah, people do. I've done some volunteering with my cosplays, and while I wasn't actually paid money for my time, it helped me land a sign-waving job for the grand opening of a dojo which did get me paid.

I say that because some people, though they may settle for free, are looking for that "compensation" in exposure and resume/portfolio-building. Granted, it's like going through rather than over an obstacle, but that ends up working to their benefit.
Even if you can't pay them directly, I'd actually suggest giving them something in return, like food/water if possible--it's "optional", I suppose, but it shows you actually do kinda care about them in the sense that you don't want them passing out. 'Course, this is something I'd do for strangers when conducting business of any sort, rather than friends and the like. If that makes any sense. ^^;

Yes! Cosplayers are basically models and you hire models so why not. (:
I commented on your DA link. (:
