Hi guys! I don't get a ton of traffic here, but most of what I get ends up being inquiries about commission work. We are not currently taking commission work at this time - but before you rush out of here and look up the next person you hope to commission, let me break reality down for you:

If you are not a cosplayer and don't understand about the true cost of a costume, they are EXPENSIVE. Just the raw material for a costume can range from 100 dollars to nearly a thousand dollars, depending on what you want. My Myrrah costume was probably 800 bucks in raw material. I saw someone post a picture of me wearing my Myrrah suit on another website, and she was "willing to spend up to 200 dollars" for a similar suit. I laughed out loud.

The true cost of cosplay gets repeated over and over by cosplayers everywhere, but it never seems to curb the outrage and sticker shock that gets thrown back at us time after time, like we're trying to rip somebody off. If you want to pay off-the-rack prices, then buy your costume OFF-THE-RACK.
