Trying to pay $50 for a $300+ costume commission is like trying to get French champagne on a Sprite budget.
—MaryAnne Vivandiere, seamstress and owner of Vivandiere Designs, on cosplayers asking for ‘reasonable prices’ for custom made costumes, without taking into account the hours spent patterning & fabricating said costume, as well as the cost of materials. (via oliviasatelier)
This is why i hardly take commission . Unless you are a big YouTube show or a really big gig or film or threader group or very very dear Friend. If I know I can spread my name out more or lead bigger things. I can take lower cost of my time.
But over all I’m to expansive for a Casual Cosplayer.
:/ One person said never mind I found it cheaper on eBay can i have my money back? Lucky I didn’t get any of stuff to make it yet.
Or other times well never mind let me look on ebay.
Other time umm that to much about 100? For costume that $300
I love this: just mail the costume I will pay u later.
last night conversation XD with my friend Pete. I was tweeting about how i don’t like making eye contact at the gym. when i do the guys are like hi! note don’t go a lone my husband come with me but we both do our own thing at the gym. but I’m always catching guys checking me out. the place has mirror every where. i don’t wear Skippy gym clothing tank top and yoga pants. Chris (husband) tell me i got a great butt that why they keep checking me out.
any way tweet and Pete responses tell me make best face to show I’m not interesting. so do but then i get silly i like making him laugh.
i thought this would be funny to share ^_^.
