Debating opening up commissions for Nui Harime cosplays (dress, wig, umbrella, etc).
Hmmm…. question is, do I want to sign my life away? And even if I do, would people be interested in buying even with my prices…
I’d be looking to charge…
$300 for the dress/armbands/hairbow/shoe bows (shoes not included)
$225 for the umbrella (vinyl-covered to make it waterproof)
$150 for the umbrella (not vinyl-covered)
$80 for the petticoat (dat gathering takes 5ever)
$750 for the wig
The way my prices break down is the cost of materials doubled as a base price, and then $10 per hour of work it takes to make everything. I’m a full time college student with two jobs, and I have all of my cosplay to work on as well. I’ve got to be able to get my stuff done before I can work on commissions, unfortunately, and deadlines that don’t give me at least three months to make things would hike up the price real fast (especially if you want a costume around my exam times). And I’d have to insist on half of the price upfront to cover for materials and labor, in case you go and cancel on me like a meanie face (p.s. NEVER cancel on a commission after you’ve given it, cause that’s super rude and inconvenient).
But yes…. now to decide if I want to do this or not………… D:
