About

It's called Everyday Cosplay for a reason

There are lots of different names for everyday cosplay - casual cosplay, closet cosplay, everyday cosplay, Disneybounding or just bounding. Whatever you call it, it's becoming more and more mainstream and I love it!

I'm the sort of person who is always making something. I originally started this Etsy store so I'd have something to do with all the things I was making, but as my creative practice evolved, I found my love of geek culture slipping into my makes, and before I knew it, most of my pieces were inspired by the fandoms I love most.

A lot of people aren't comfortable wearing fan t-shirts to work, nor is it practical to dress up in a full cosplay every weekend, but there are a lot of things you can do to create a closet cosplay - I'm known around the office for my corporate cosplays! I find that all it takes is the right accessory to turn an outfit - especially head-to-toe black - into a casual or corporate cosplay.

And that's where Buttons and Kittens comes in. I'm always thinking of new ideas to turn an otherwise normal outfit into an homage to a beloved fictional character, whether it's a Golden Snitch necklace or silver arrow earrings.

If there's a specific accessory you'd like to collaborate on, get in touch and we can work something out.

    I'm the sort of person who is always making something. I'm also fairly nerdy - gaming or reading if I'm not making - and I attend PAX Aus every year, so it was only natural that my makes would take a geeky turn into everyday cosplay.

Hi! Welcome to Buttons and Kittens!

Before creating a product range, I road test a prototype for comfort, style, hardiness and wearability. The end result of this is that I'm able to ensure my products are great quality and pass the 'cute' test. To put it simply, I won't sell things that I wouldn't wear myself! (This does not extend to colours. Everyone has their own signature colour and I try to cater to this with a wide colour range!)

Like the products I create, any supplies I sell are also road-tested by me, and are usually sourced because they're hard-to-find items that I want to make easily available to others.

The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalised orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)

Returns and exchange details
No returns will be accepted for change of mind or allergies. Given that most of my products are earrings, for health reasons, I cannot accept these items back.

I only use surgical steel for the earring posts and hooks in my jewellery. Usually this is suitable for people with sensitive skin/ears, but please check with the wearer before purchase, as some people can only wear pure gold or silver jewellery. As stated above, no refunds will be given if the recipient of the jewellery is allergic to the materials.

Refunds or replacements will only be given when products are genuinely faulty, and will not be given when the buyer has broken the items upon receipt or when the items have been damaged in transit.

If you are unsure of any details of an item, please contact me for more details.
Payment
I accept Etsy Payments, letting you pay the way you want to.

Goods will only be shipped once full payment has been received.

The processing time stated in the item listing will begin once full payment has been received. Likewise, custom order cannot be started until full payment has been received.

If payment has not been received within 2 weeks of order placement, the order will be assumed to be cancelled and the item will be placed back in the store.

If your payment is received after this time and the item(s) are no longer available, your money will be returned to you minus any transfer fees. You will be contacted before your money is returned in case an alternative option is available.

If the item(s) are still available when a late payment is received, your order will be processed as normal.
Shipping
Goods are packaged in padded envelopes, or wrapped in bubblewrap, or both (when items are fragile) to avoid damage in transit.

Delivery is from Australia and will be sent via Australia Post within Australia and via Economy Air Mail to any other country. Express Post is also available as a shipping upgrade. If you would like an alternate method of delivery, please contact me.

International orders:
As international deliveries must be lodged at a post office, these are done twice weekly, unless you have chosen an Express option. Please note that Economy Air Mail can take 2-4 weeks to reach you, depending on where you are, and tracking is not available for this option. If you would like your order sooner, or if you would like tracking on your delivery, please choose the Express upgrade.
