    I ordered this dress for my work Halloween party. It is the only adult version of this costume I could find so I was super excited about it. I emailed the seller as directed to request I get it by a specific date before ordering. Long story short a bit of a snafu happened from the manufacturer side of things and my dress almost didn’t make it on time but because Michelle is so amazing it all worked out perfectly. She emailed me and kept me up to date on everything that was happening. She is awesome to work with and I highly recommend her shop . The dress was perfect. Thank you.

    Amazing! The dress is beautiful and soft! I had asked if by chance I could receive it WAY earlier than the standard timeline and luckily they had it in stock and were nice enough to ship it out immediately for me! So nice of them they didn't have to do that! Awesome shop! Will buy from here again!! THANK YOU!!

    Michelle is wonderful! This is an amazing dress and I was so excited when it arrived (Way ahead of the scheduled time!). She kept in contact with me the entire time, and has responded to all of my questions (and still deals with my neediness for future purchases). I plan on purchasing more items from her very soon!

Geeky Clothing, Jewelry and more!

Bahamut Dawn Creations was Founded December 2013, 8 months after my Mother's passing. She always encouraged me to spread the geeky joy, and thought I always seemed happy creating geeky stuff! I wanted to create something fun and bring joy to people with her spirit behind me.

I started with jewelry, getting my feet wet with what I liked and didn't like. Eventually I wanted to put my Graphic Design and Digital art skills to good use and started designing clothing. I first debuted my clothing in May 2014 at Ottawa Comiccon, having brought geeky leggings I had designed. And now I have expanded into dresses, skirts, hoodies, tops, bathing suits and more!

My goal is to make geeky video game, anime, cartoon, original themed clothing, accessories, you name it for the average person! Something you can wear every day or for cosplay or just to collect! To show off your love for a character, or a fandom, or your own character.

I am no longer a one person show! My husband has come on board full time to help with orders/processing, customer service and even handles the prop portion of the business! I design and get my designs sublimated onto clothing. This means the colours are dyed right into the fabric for lasting design! This also means I'm limited to using polyester or a form of cotton, as you can only sublimate clothing that is at least 50% Polyester or a special cotton (other fabrics don't absorb the ink/colours properly). I also do the 3d modeling for 3d printed work and handmake a lot of the jewelry/craft side, with some assistance from my husband. We work together on every aspect to help bring to you a reliable business structure you can trust!

The idea of printing clothing actually didn't come from any outside influence. I'm a cosplayer as a hobby, and have been designing my own cosplays for over ten years! I always wanted to make casual cosplays or geeky cosplays that anyone could wear and that weren't overly complicated to put on. That would come in a vast range of sizes too, to accomodate men, women or youth alike! This is what stemmed the clothing side of my business. I balance prices based on cost + labour + shipping to bring affordable clothing to anyone who wants it! I also love doing commissions and spawning original ideas!

This is now my full-time job and I dedicate myself entirely to my business. I hope to make 2018 even more special with more designs, more items, and more cool work!!

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
You may cancel your order for a full refund up to 48 hours after purchase. Once 48 hours have past you can no longer cancel your order as the order will have been started.
Commissions are started immediately and once paid for cannot be refunded. 

FED EX SHIPPING - is a new upgrade for clothing. This speeds up the shipping time only, not the creation time! You still need to tell me of a deadline before you order OR in the comments of your order and i will contact you right away if it's possible or not. Simply selecting this upgrade will not make me able to magically guarantee a deadline I don't know about.

If you have a date/deadline you must tell me BEFORE you order, or when you order in the comments box so that I may contact you directly and find out if it's possible or not. I am not responsible for missing a deadline I didn't know about.

European buyers: all clothing/jewelry/accessories you buy here are custom/made to order specifically personalized to you and your size and cannot be returned/fall under the return policy of EU law. Please be aware of this BEFORE you purchase from my shop, or ask when in doubt. The cancellation policy still holds and you can cancel your order up to 48 hours from purchase date.

If items are damaged during shipping (broken, stained, etc) please provide photos of damages within 72 hours of item being marked delivered. Full refunds will be given on broken items immediately while stained items a partial refund may be given or a full refund if item is sent back. Please contact for return item shipping information.

I will not refund items Damaged by you. After 72 hours of receiving/tracking being marked "delivered", items are considered in your care and will not be refunded if damaged from there on unless can be proven without a doubt it was damaged in shipping.

Event items or Commissions (ie: Halloween, convention, dance, Xmas, custom outfit etc) will not be refunded under any circumstances. Please read my cut off dates for holidays like Halloween and Christmas carefully, and be aware depending on the time you ordered it may not arrive for your deadline. Unless your order has comments in it BY you (and not just marking the "gift" button) that you need it by a specific time, they will not be cancelled nor refunded if the deadline is missed. If I cannot reach it and you did tell me, I will cancel/refund your order only then.

EXCHANGES POLICY UPDATED FURTHER - I do not accept exchanges so please be sure to pay attention to the size chart when ordering. HOWEVER, contact me if there's a concern and I may be able to help. I do bring in stock for shows periodically, and may have it in the size you need already made or may be able to offer a discount to get the proper size. If you send something back to me and haven't contacted me and we haven't made an agreement, I will not refund/exchange. (I never do exchanges for a different product altogether, so please don't ask to exchange your leggings for a dress for example.). I'm flexible so if you did order the wrong size, please message me and we will see what we can do for you!

Unless otherwise stated above, Refunds will not be given. All my items are classified under custom/made to order and thus for the most part, materials/etc cannot be recovered. I am a small business not a chain store. 

Customs/import taxes - I am not responsible for any customs/import taxes you may receive on your items. If you refuse to accept your item due to customs and it is shipped back to me, you will be required to pay shipping in full + an added fee to have the item shipped back. No refunds will be given. Customs/import taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.

I ship primarily USPS/Canada post however, if requested to ship UPS, DHL or Fed Ex, please understand your shipping costs may go up and you will be responsible for the additional shipping fees.

When in doubt, message me and we'll work something out! You agree to all of this when you purchase from me.
Payment
I accept debit, credit and etsy gift card payments.
I also accept paypal.

I only accept email money transfers from customers in Canada. PM me in regards to this though.
Shipping
All clothing is made to order - 3-5 weeks processing time + shipping.
Clothing that says "in stock" in it's title - 1-10 days processing time + shipping.
3d printed items/jewellery - 4-8 weeks processing time + shipping
handmade small jewellery like clay pieces - 1-3 weeks processing time + shipping

All clothing will now be shipped directly from manufacturers who are overseas if it's "made to order". It is still our created items and work, only being shipped at a much cheaper cost to you and avoiding any potential canada post delays in the future. This also means you may get your items sooner then the 3-5 week processing time though cannot guarantee it.

We have noticed our Canadian clients clothing made to order a bit slower to receive then other countries, we apologize as this is due to Canada border agency and not us.

Only clothing in stock will be shipped via Canadapost and shipping costs will remain the same as before on those items. (or jewellery, etc will be shipped canadapost)

Fed Ex upgrade - only available on made to order clothing, only speeds up the shipping time NOT the creation time.

All clothing items are tracked. if you didn't receive tracking please contact me.

I am not responsible for shipping times, delays during the shipping process or items being held up by customs. I am also not responsible for custom fees.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do take commissions on jewelry, clothing, crafts, accessories or digital artwork.
Some custom jewelry will cost the same as other jewelry so please message me what you'd like and I'll let you know the costs.

I do take commissions on clothing as well. I do two types of clothing: heat printed clothing designed by me, or sewn clothing made by me. Unless it's specified in the listing at the top of the description its a "sewn one" assume it's a designed heat printed one instead.

All items are handled or made in a pet friendly home (dogs and cats) if you have allergies please express this concern immediately in a message or comments on check out! Otherwise I cannot guarantee if my pet hair has come in contact with it (less issue with clothing but still a concern in general given I have 2 cats and 2 dogs).

Items may look slightly different from the photos online due to monitor settings, please be aware when you order.

heat sublimated dresses/leggings/clothing etc are polyester/spandex blend or a cotton blend (it'll specify in the item description). Clothing must be polyester (or a type of cotton) for sublimation to work. If you require a different material, your item may need to be specially made so please contact me.

I do get my fabric/clothing printed at an exterior source. This is to insure I can offer you the most unique look to your clothing as possible while being able to handle any level of orders/offer fair pricing. It is not shipped from Canada unless in stock.

Frequently asked questions
What is the clothing creation process?

The process is called "dye sublimation" designs are dyed right into the fabric for a permanent look. Unlike vinyl or screen printing that sits on top of the fabric, this is fused right into the fabric materials.

This process is very expensive, so we outsource it to a manufacturer overseas. The quality is still high quality and we don't use just any company. We also still do all the patterning/design/creating work and the items are still handmade so slight errors can still occur.

We are extremely picky and only want the best affordable look for our clothing. Hoodies are double lined, thick, fleece on the inside, and so on. We are not cheap quality.

Care instructions

For best results and to preserve colours longer, wash in cold water and hang to dry. You can throw clothing in the dryer, but heat can make the colours fade over time like any garment.

Be careful leaving clothing out in the sun for long periods of time because the sun can bleach or cause fabrics to fade overtime.

Hoodies/shirts/etc - any clothing that is offered in both mens and ladies sizing, becareful on fit! Ladies sizes tend to run smaller and more "curved" to fit while men sizing tends to be more loose fitting.

If you're tall or longer arms, etc please order a size up. Garments are made to an average height scale. When in doubt, ask before assuming!

Polyester doesn't shrink in the wash. Tshirts are cotton so be careful

Custom and personalised orders

We take commissions on anything! Clothing, jewellery, you name it! We love doing designs we've never done before, or even designs on different patterns.

To date we have over 200 patterns of clothing we can work with varying in style and haven't even grazed the surface yet so definitely send us a message if you'd like something custom you don't see here!

(depending on complexity or doing a new design/piece from scratch, commissions may be subject to a design/extra labour fee.)

I have concerns with my order..

Please contact us first! Our policies are above but we may be able to work with you. We try to reply within 72 hours to a week, if we missed your message please send a follow up one.

The business is run with Michy and my husband Jeff. Just the two of us.

We also have several partners for manufacturing:
- our clothing manufacturer overseas
- shapeways - helps us create 3D items in metal/etc

However also on site we have 5 3d printers for everything plastic, CNC machine for details in wood, resin for molds, Embroidery and Sewing machine and more!

What is the quality like?

Hoodies are very high quality: thick polyester with a soft fleece feel inside, double lined hood and strong will last you.

dresses and leggings are made out of polyester/spandex blend so they are stretchy but also breathable and light. Overly white garments can be see through so layer up just in case.

Shirts are cotton/polyester blend - they are soft and breathable.

Some loose threads may be scattered around your garment. This happens. They try to be inspected thoroughly but can miss this.

We try to keep costs down but will not reduce costs if it sacrifices quality. We are about quality first. Pricing reflects that.
