    WOW! I don’t know what else to say about this seller other than W O W!
    I had this hairpiece commissioned for a cosplay I am working on. I redesigned it from the main headpiece to be able to be worn with the armored cosplay, as well as the casual version; and all I can say is the seller literally took my design and made it reality!! Even better than I imagined!
    An excellent communicator throughout, gave lots of progress pics and overall a wonderful creator/seller :D
    You gotta use their shop for all your cosplay needs!!

Small But Mighty Custom Designed Costumes

Custom is What We Love to Do.
Don’t see the cosplay you’re looking for? We can probably still do it! As we’ve spent the last seven years doing custom cosplay commissions, we welcome the conversation for a new sewing project! We will ask you a few questions about the character if we’re not familiar with the series, show or game. We will determine what materials would be best to create the cosplay, and discuss this with you, then determine the total price for the cosplay.

Everybody is Welcome.
I spent nearly a decade deemed plus size by fashion standards and know first hand what it feels like when you can’t purchase clothing your size. It’s very important to me that, not only do I create beautiful things with my hands, but that everybody feels comfortable and free to be themselves in our products. Everyone, whatever character you’re portraying, that makes you feel alive or an alter ego for a day, deserves a high quality, custom fit.

Sustainability is our Future
We are trying to become more conscious consumers, albeit not perfect, we give careful thought into the materials and the way in which I build costumes. Whenever I can, I will opt for natural fabric like cottons and wools that will eventually break down over their lifetime, rather than polyesters and other plastics. Whenever I can, I use biodegradable PLA filament in our 3D printer, that is sourced from plants (corn). That said, we don’t always get it right - sometimes a cosplay must be made of spandex for the right fit, and I can’t avoid that this is made of polyester. Similarly, vegan leather, although good for our animal friends, also means it will not biodegrade over its lifetime. Although we won’t get it right every time, our goal is to ensure we build quality, durable cosplays that can be re-worn, or re-sold.
