I took a week off work because paid vacations are baller. But I was wanting to get in a lot of sewing and did very little. x.x I wanted to get WAY more done than this but… it didn’t happen. So yeah, I made a Rainbow Brite Commission for my Aunt. I started on a Maxie commission for Logan, and the last picture is the start of my genderbend Hiccup costume for Renfair. Hopefully I can get everything done by the end of the month. (Gonna make an Ampharos kigurumi for Chloe as well and had hoped to get that done this week as well… but… LIFE HAPPENS)
Also I am still open for commissions if you need something AFTER Halloween. Shoot me an e-mail (traciea21 at gmail dot com) instead of a message because tumblr seems to like to eat those. D:
SO! My aunt commissioned me last year to make her a Rainbow Brite costume for Halloween, unfortunately life got in the way and she had eye surgery and had to wear an eye patch and… ANYWAY, makin it this year for her. I wanted to have it done to give to her tomorrow but… I got lazy yesterday so I didn’t get as much done as I wanted. BUT, I’m hoping to have it done, or at least the dress done by tomorrow. ANYWAY HAVE SOME PROGRESS
Long post is long but I’m trying to get some more commissions lined up STARTING AFTER AFEST (beginning of September). if you are looking for someone to make a costume for ya, YOU MIGHT HAVE FOUND SOMEONE! I work relatively quickly but cannot afford to underpay myself. So this might help gauge pricing. I’ve included a bunch of costumes I’ve made and included in the captions what it’d cost for a costume similar. Included in the price is the cost of materials as well as the cost of labor. Obviously things that take me longer to make will be more expensive. BUT if they sound reasonable to you go ahead and shoot me an e-mail! cosplaykikala @ gmail.com (Without spaces obviously) If you want to make sure it got to me and that I’ll check it message me here too. I am desperately trying to afford paying back my student loans and it’s not workin out so well by myself. So why not do something I love?
Rebloggin for the afternoon crowd
I know, you’re tired of seeing it… But Animefest is almost here and I can start taking on new things! I’ll have so much free time in two weeks I won’t know what to do with myself. SO PLEASE! Help me oooout. :D Also, as an added note… I’m a little nervous about doing completely form fitting costumes for people I have no access too, I just worry about getting it to fit JUST RIGHT without having a way for you to try it on.
Time for yet another reblog of commissions being open. It’s after Afest and other than being a full time employee at a book store I’ve got nothing but time! :D
Not only am I open for commissions but I also have quite a few of my costumes and wigs on my store envy! Here!
I only did one photo set at AnimeFEST ‘14, and it was with my incredibly talented friend kikala! She makes some amazing things in the shortest amount of time. SHE IS A SEWING SPEED DEMON. Go check out more of her work when you can!
