    Cosplay Commisioner and Wig Stylist for hire.

    I am a cosplay commissioner and wig stylist here in San Antonio. I have about 5 years for cosplay experience but have been sewing since I was 10. I am available for a few commissions and the sooner you let me know the better since it gives me more time to focus on detail and perfect it.

    I require a down payment in order to start the order. A lot of people have been taking advantage of me lately so that will be a huge deterant from people who are stealing from me or abusing my payments on the down payment.

    I buy the base wigs from Arda Wigs, The Five Wits, or Cosplay DNA
    Fabric is purchased either at Hobby Lobby, JoAnns, or Hancock Fabrics







    Here are some of my works
    Kagome: $20 in supplies made the day before the con (friend gave me money really late)
    Orhime: $25 in supplies, most fabric was recycled from sheets. One month of labor hand sewn
    Pikachu: $0 in supplies, most materials included the foam board for the tail was already in fabric storage. A few hours of labor.
    Kimono: $0 in supplies, fabric was given to me by my exs mother. 3 weeks of labor, handsewn pieces and machine.
    Lust: $50 for fabric $45 for wig. Wig was bought locally at a wig shop and hand styled by me. 4 hours of hand curling and 3 days of setting to ensure it wouldn't uncurl. Dress was 1 week of labor and the gloves were 2-3 days. The gloves were hand sewn and the dress was done on the machine. Dress had lining and boning in it.
    Greed: $80 in supplies (lycra is expensive) 1 month of labor handsewn for the most part.

    I ask that money for supplies be paid first and ask for a labor fee (based on how hard it is ex Kagome-$10 and Greed-$35) after work is done. I offer payments if its needed.

    Ok you can pick from three color swatches

    the coral color is $24 and the brighter oranges are $34. Heat resistant fibers and soft and silky. Supplies would be like $5-7 (two scrunchies and a small can of hair spray like the travel size, preferiably the jonh frieda cuz it works awsomely!) and thats if i dont have it on me.

    Labor would be like maybe $20 for labor and it has a year warranty on it ^_^.

    email the stuff to me at dez.goth14@yahoo.comColor73and1271-121x150.jpgColorT2313andT2312-108x150.jpgColorOW039-127x150.jpg

    Well you pay the money order to the five wits. I can text you the address (number is on my facebook)
    And tell me what wig color you want so i can give you the name of it and the exact price.
    You pay me at san japan for the labor and i will give it to you then. ^_^
    It should be like $25 for labor

    Well, I've been toying with the idea of pulling off an Edward Elric for SJ4 possibly... If I did that though, I'd have to get an automail arm from somewhere XD But out of curiosity, how much would Edward's jacket be? Not the red one, but the black white-lined one he wears underneath http://edwardelric.info/img/edward8.gif [on the right]

    Honestly, I'm kinda looking to buy a kimono for the Masquerade ball, But I want it to be reaaalllly formal and elaborate. And the one I found on google that I reaaaalllly like is like 0.0!!!! But I have no idea how much it would cost you to make it

    Here's the link!!!!

    http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=...w=1280&bih=588

    And I would want something colorful for the outer Kimono if that's not too much to ask for, here's a link to what I like: http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=...w=1280&bih=588


    It's a pretty big undertaking if you ask me, and I would eternally grateful if you can do something like this at a reasonable price (like at $150 or less) Just give me a guesstimation if you can do it and what price you would charge :P

    KEEP IN MIND!!!!!

    I live in Houston!!!!

    I have a friend who does metal work, and could make an actual metal arm out of aluminum or tin (both light and soft metals)
    The jacket maybe at most $20 for supplies and maybe $20 for labor. Im actually working on one right now from my onii-chan!

    I know i can make the outer kimono easy, only issue being fabric cost (i bet that would cost more than what i charge for labor). For the actual kimono i would require a better image, its a bit hard for me to see all the details. The fabric style would vary since i doubt they will have the exact same fabric on the kimono.

    Also I can give you the kimono at the con or ship it ^.^ if it needs to be fitted in if i ship it then you can send it back and i will fit it in.
