Hi I am unique creator. I have more than 20 years experience in designing and sewing Outfits. I love what I do and I am easy to work with. You can see some of my work on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/reba.collections

This is how I work: I require half of the full amount quoted for the pieces you wish commissioned in order to start the project. The balance of the amount is due at the end of the project, along with the shipping fee. The balance can be paid in full at the end of the project or by installments up to the point of paying off the full amount at the end of the project. When the project has been finished, I will email you final pictures and the balance and the shipping fee is due then. Once I receive the funds, I will mail out the outfit, accessories or props commissioned.

I need the following information:
Reference Pictures
Location being sent to
Details about the project

The Price quoted includes materials, workmanship, Paypal fees, etc.

Once you have sent me the half of the full amount deposit, then I set aside a space within my schedule for your project. That first half deposit is not refundable because this amount will go automatically goes towards materials and other starting fees.

I like to discuss the entire project in details before starting because once the pattern work has started, no major changes are allowed.

I normally email you pictures once the pieces look decent, almost finished or finished. This is because I have had the experience of showing work in progress and the customer not understanding work in progress process and therefore, slows me down, delays the work and then I have to rush at the end to still meet the deadline.

I am here to answer your questions, keep communication and make the commission process as easy as possible.

I hope to be able to help you with your next Cosplay Outfit, Accessories or Props.

Just PM me or email me at: rebacollections@hotmail.com

Hi I have got a question for commissioners..

I found this commissioner in Etsy. And I have her commission one partial costume and one fulll costume on Sep 12. She has been on and off in communication with me. I paid full (yea.. but etsy requires full payment).. She sent some part of the costume to me, but not all.. It was jus yesterday though. I emailed her about it. I'm wonderin if she could... possible not send me anything else anymore and claimed that she sent everything to me?

It 's too late for me to open any case now I wont be able to get any refunds..

You should make this question it's own thread.

I truly don't mean to sound unhelpful. On the contrary you'll probably get more help that way. Some people who could offer you advice may be hesitant to do so here because it would derail this thread's intended purpose.

Hi! My name is Jon, or if you prefer, BL. Almost a year ago now, I began work on my very first homemade cosplay, as I felt that the mass-produced costumes for the character I wanted to portray were not as accurate to the source material as I wanted. I strive for near-100% accuracy in my cosplays.

So, I bought a sewing machine, came to this site and the rest was history. I managed to get my outfit ready just in time for ConnectiCon '13, and have since dabbled into props and toddler size costumes, and now that I'm in need of more funds, I've decided to try my hand at taking costume commissions. Check out my new Deviantart page with photos of my work here: jsecosplay.deviantart.com

Disclaimer: I am not an expert, so there may be minor flaws in the final product. Also, I'm no otaku. I don't watch any anime outside of ones I watched weekend mornings. I'm more of a superhero/video game fan. That being said, I reserve the right to deny commission requests due to a lack of knowledge of the source material and character/item in question.

If you would like a costume or prop, feel free to PM me your request, and if it's a costume, your sizes and material specifications, and I'll give you a quote accordingly. Keep in mind, the more expensive the materials, the more it'll cost. I require at least half of the estimate for the project up front, and work on your product will begin right away. Quotes in include material, paypal and shipping costs.

I'll be updating my page with more pictures of my work as it's completed. Be sure to share my page with your friends! Thank you for your time. I look forward to your potential business!

Hello! I've been cosplaying since 2001 but sewing since 1990 (I was 8, and needed a hair scrunchie to match every outfit...80's kids would understand). In the past 13 years I've made costumes for myself, my husband and friends from a huge variety of sources. I take a lot of pride in my craftsmanship, and have won several awards for craftsmanship at Otakon, Katsucon, and other east coast conventions. I'm currently open for wig, costume and accessory commissions. My full gallery is here , and here (my husband, I've made his costumes & styled wigs for years).

To request a commission quote please e-mail me at levelupcosplay@gmail.com with:

- Character reference images
- Items requested (whole costume, wig, jewelry, pieces of costume, etc.)
- Budget
- General measurements (Bust / Waist / Hips & Height) in inches (for costumes, not wigs!)
- Deadline
- Preferences & notes (fabric preferences, changes to costume design, etc.)

I'm open to all requests, but I'm not terribly experienced in full spandex outfits or full suits of armor. I love gijinkas, genderswapping, lolitas and other variations on characters.

My full policies can be found here, but in a nutshell it's paypal only, 50% or at least $50 upfront, payment plans welcome for large jobs. Currently I'm booking for May deadlines and later.

I'm happy to arrange fittings, I live in the NYC tri-state area and will be attending several east coast conventions this year.

Hello there. I have been cosplaying for the past 2 years now but making random crafts for 10+ years and more into the wood side of things these last 2 years.I am here to offer my skills as a prop and accessory commissioner. While wood is my main thing i do make props and such from various other materials such as fabric cardboard wire paper mache etc. I can make your props in a reasonable time and at very reasonable prices. Simply message me your commission needs along with reference pictures and measurements along with any other materials/info you think i might need. Yes i can research your commission for you and that will simply add a small amount of time to the completion as i feel if i research it i will have to check with my customers to make sure what i have found is 100% to their likings. Yes I am a new face here but i am diligent and hard working with a military back ground to boot. All i can say is give me a try and i promise you will not leave dissatisfied.
Please give my store a look it has recently been re-opened and more items added as soon as they are finished also taking commissions there.

CosplayMandy High Quality Commissions

Hi! I have been cosplaying for over 7 years and am a highly experienced seamstress. I have made many wonderful costumes for myself, my friends, and many fellow cosplayers. You can see pictures of my work at http://photobucket.com/cosplaymandy and my etsy shop link at https://www.etsy.com/shop/cosplayman...=hdr_shop_menu
Please also like my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cospl...homepage_panel
I always do my best to ensure 100% satisfaction on all my costumes (check out my comments)!! My costumes are very detailed and well made and I always use high quality fabrics. I am very experienced with many fabric types (including Lycra and synthetic leather). I am also able to get a wide range of different materials such as denim, wool, and cashmere to make my costumes more accurate. I can make just about any costume and I love a challenge. The more detailed and creative, the better!! I get a bit obsessive about projects, so it usually takes me about two months to make a costume!
I also make high quality props and custom shoes professionally and I can get unstyled wigs at a discounted price, so I offer the entire cosplay package at a low price. Here is a link to my prop gallery http://photobucket.com/cosplaymandyprops I am also now accepting plushie commissions!!!! Please email me at cosplaymandy@gmail.com for a quote. Don't forget reference pictures please!!! Please also let me know the due date, what parts of the costume you need and your approximate budget.
As far as payment is concerned, I accept paypal, money orders and checks from US banks and am always willing to work out a payment plan.
I am from San Diego, but I go to school in Shanghai, so costumes will often ship from China. I try my best to estimate shipping costs, but often there is no way for me to know the cubic size or weight of the package until everything is completed. This is especially true of props. Also, props take up a lot of space in my studio and I have recently had some issues with customers not paying the shipping fees in a timely manner. Therefore, if the final payment and shipping payment are not paid within two weeks from the date of completion, a $1/day storage fee will be charged.
P.S : please do not pm me on cosplay.com because I do not get notified and am likely to miss it.
Currently taking commissions! Check out my costume gallery http://photobucket.com/cosplaymandy and my prop gallery http://photobucket.com/cosplaymandyprops

I've taken my costumes and cosplays seriously since I could understand the concept. I make props and armor for anyone who wants one, I typically don't accept costumes but am always willing to take on a challenge. My props and armor are made of foam board and paper mache, they are durable and lightweight. I have also worked with plexiglass and wood. Pricing is simple: you pay for the materials, you pay for the shipping, and labor is handled on an individual basis but the starting price is 50. My work is in the signature. My cosplays have been featured on many websites such as Games Radar and Watchtower of Geeks.

Current commission: Raygust from "World Trigger"
Personal Project: Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma from "Star Wars"
