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.
