    The colors are beautiful in shades of blue and lilac, and the dress is the perfect length. Going to be so much fun to figure out exactly how to tie and drape so the folds fall just so. It is a piece of art.

    I was very excited to get this crown, even though the price tag hurt my heart a bit. The craftsmanship is wonderful, though, and I am looking forward to incorporating the crown to my Daenerys wig.

    The color and composition are fantastic, It's a unique piece. I'm very satisfied because the contrast between the inside and the outside enhances the face and the hairstyle and the hairstyle.

    Absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to photograph it. The attention to detail for the dye/color and the texture is amazing and there are so many ways it can be worn. It's also great that it can fit a wide variety of body shapes and sizes, and be dressed up/down depending on the the look you're going for. The designer also sent a note explaining the different ways it can be worn and how to store/care for it, which was very kind. She also shipped quickly and it arrived sooner than I expected. So so happy to own a piece by her.

    My wig is exactly what I wanted, extremely well made! Great communication, GM took the time and trouble to make the wig to my exact specifications. She went the extra distance to make me happy, to make certain the wig was as I required, and communicated time and again her desire to make the wig as I needed it. She is fantastic! A great artist at her craft, and I cannot express how pleased I am with the final product, manufacture, customer service and commitment of the maker!!! I highly recommend her services!!!

What I want for myself, made for you

Well, my granny was a tailor, I always loved costumes and that's the heart of it.
I studied ballet for 16 years, and always made my solos costumes. I played live role games for years, and always made my costumes. I started with cosplay. and made everything again only with my very hands. I loved victorian period and steampunk fashion, and managed to create a group of stem-victorian tea parties, making my own costumed and my boyfriend's.
I'm the kind of girl that simply can't buy one thing if it's not exactly how she wanted. And If she can't find it, she makes it, she designs it.
I think I'm not the only one like that, so I offer my skills to you, to create your clothing and accessories and costumes and everything as I would do for me, because I love to look beautiful and with style, and I think you love it too.
I'm here to make you look gorgeous and feel happy. Even if you're a boy.
I can make costumes for almost everything, real clothing to wear everyday, and all what your imagination can reach.
Cosplay, live role game, historical gowns, dresses, capes, carnival and halloween costumes...all you need is asking.

I'm not alone: I work outside Etsy too, so, when there's too much work for me, I ask some of my friends. They love fashion and costumes as I do, they're creative and with taste, they're friends I trust and that's our strengt.

Shop policies

Last updated on June 6, 2019
We hope you'll never need to use some of the informations below: our shipping fees are calculated to provide a sufficient protection.
But int he unfortunate case it would not be enough, here's what you need to know.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept cancellations
Request a cancellation within: 1 hour of purchase
I don't accept returns or exchanges
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
I do not accept return&refund. I have always been willing to help for every type of problem, but as this is a very small business, dealing in made to measure and uniquely designed things, it's impossible to refund an order completely.

If you wish the dress for a specific day, you'll need to let me know about the deadline before placing the order. If the deadline can't be met, you'll get a partial refund only, if you have purchased before asking.
We ship almost everything via courier, with tracking. I can not and I will not answer for delays due to strikes and other problems depending on the courier, nor customs fees.

MEASURES
If the dress doesn't fit you, but it measures as the measures you sent, there will be no refund. We'll ask proof of measures, if that happens.
If it doesn't measure as agreed, we'll discuss a solution.
Payment
We ship only after payment is complete.

Payment plans:

The Customer agrees that each payment will be made on a specific day of each month, chosen together with Grimilde Malatesta.

The Customer has a total of fifteen days of delay due to conveniences on his side, for all the processing time. Delays due to delays on supplies delivery are not calculated on the fifteen days, and Grimilde Malatesta will not answer for delays from other parts. A delay of ten days on the second payment, and a further delay on the third payment of six days from the scheduled day, for example, exceeds the fifteen days.

In case of payment delay of more than fifteen days, Grimilde Malatesta does not guarantee delivery of the finished costume within the deadline. Should the last payment be closer than fifteen days to the date of the last payment, Grimilde Malatesta does not guarantee the delivery before the deadline, unless the last payment has been processed ten days before the deadline.

Grimilde Malatesta is not responsible of delays due to shipping companies, nor for customs fees.
Grimilde Malatesta is not responsible for damages of the shipped goods or lost packages or wrong delivery. Insurance has to be purchased when placing the order, if desired, and the extra fee covered, otherwise the package will be shipped without insurance at the buyer's own risk.

Should the Customer exceed the fifteen days of delay on payment, Grimilde Malatesta will be allowed to make the costume available for worldwide customers to buy, for a price of her choice, that will reflect the difference of cost between a made to measure costume which has been designed to the Customer’s indications, to a dress ready to buy, not made to measure and not designed according to the buyer’s indications.
Should the Customer be able to complete the payment before anyone else does, he will receive the costume.
Should someone purchase the costume before the Customer is able to complete the payment, the Customer will receive a partial refund. The refund in this case will be calculated on what the Customer has paid until that day, subtracting any Etsy, Paypal, bank transfer or other fees, and subtracting the difference from the value of the made to measure and to design costume, and the ready to buy one.

Should the Customer exceed the fifteen days of delay for the scheduled payment, and should there be more than one payment parts left, the costume will remain available for anyone to purchase until the payment is completed. In this case the Customer is allowed to complete the payment in one time, so that the costume will no more be available to other buyers.
Should the Customer be unable to complete the payment of shipping costs within 48 hours from the comunication of their amount, the costume wll be made available to the public.

The Customer agrees that returning the costume and receiving a whole refund of what paid will not be possible.
Should there be any inconvenience or costume malfunctions noticed before using the costume, Grimilde Malatesta will be available to recommend fixing options from a distance and/or ( if there’s enough time to have the costume shipped to her, fixed, and shipped back to the Customer) fixing the costume herself. In this case shipping costs will be completely covered by the Customer, and Grimilde Malatesta will be able to choose if the alterations will need to be paid by the Customer, and set the cost of the alterations, before the costume is shipped. This amount, plus the shipping costs, will be paid by the Customer before the costume is returned to him/her. If the payment is not completed within 48 hours from the comunication of the completion of the alterations, the dress will be once again available for purchase to the public, as for the previous delay options.
Should the Customer choose to have the costume fixed by someone else, the whole cost will be paid by the Customer, and Grimilde Malatesta will not be responsible for further problems of any kind with the costume.

In case the Customer chooses not to complete the costume, he will receive a partial refund, as indicated above, only when someone purchases the costume. Grimilde Malatesta will be able to complete the costume and rent it, in the meantime. What earned from the rentals will remain to Grimilde Malatesta and will not be part of the Customer’s refund.
Shipping
Please, check twice your adress, to avoid shipping misunderstandings.

If you need the item to be shipped for a special date, you're expected to answer our e-mail and messages within 1 day. There may be things to add to the customs papers, that can vary from country to country, and that we may have to ask you after you've placed the order. If we don't receive answers from you in a short time, we can not grant delivery on time.

Sometimes it is possible to update crafting time with rush fees. If you need the item to be made in 50% of the time, you'll have to pay a 50% extra on the item's price. If needed in 25% of the time, you'd have to pay a 75% extra and so on.

Shipping insurance can be requested when placing the order (a custom listing with the insurance cost will be added).

Please, ask, also because of holidays. Our planned holidays are not considered part of our crafting time, so times will extend. If we take 4 weeks to make a dress, but 2 weeks after you ordered we plan to go on holiday for 1 week, you'll have the dress 5 weeks after you ordered. If you need to have the dress for a specific day, ask before. If you don't ask before placing your order, your dress will be shipped after the holiday, and if it arrives late and you no longer need it, we won't give your money back.
So please, PLEASE, check and ask BEFORE you place your order. Thank you!
