I waited until my first Ren faire to write my review. I LOVE my dress, it fit me like a glove!! I just can't say enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! My husband made my belt and my pouch to match and everything just went perfectly together.

Oh. My. Goodness. This is one of the best costumes I've ever owned. It fits like a glove, and looks beyond amazing. Due to a communication error I did receive the wrong colors originally, and was forced to miss one weekend of my event while waiting for them to remake the costume, but it was worth it. Shop owners are nice as can be, and were incredibly patient with me and all the questions I pestered them with. The colors I received this time were not identical to the ones pictured. The skirts were red and black, no white was there..but that's totally okay. I kind of like this more anyways, but just something to be aware of. Regardless, I love it. Thank you so much.

Shop policies

Last updated on August 21, 2016
All of our designs are handcrafted to fit YOU.
Our designs are not ready to wear designs.
And DO NOT ship immediately
Please take the time to read and review our policy pages below, before you purchase.
Color and special requests.:
If you have a special request or special color choice please email us BEFORE you purchase to make sure we can accommodate your request.

When you make a purchase a measurement sheet will be sent to the email address that Etsy provides. Please take the time to fill it out correctly. Make sure your measurements are right! If you are guessing, GUESS WHAT you have a 10% chance it will fit correctly! If you are not familiar with taking your measurements go to a seamstress or tailor and have them taken this won't cost very much.
The measurement sheet is your lifeline to us; on this you must include any changes such as colors or design variations.
If we agreed to a "rush" shipment for you it must be noted on that measurement sheet.
We will not be responsible for errors that were made because the important information that was needed was not noted on the measurement sheet.
This is your responsibility. I'm not kidding!
We are human, we make mistakes this rule limits the errors we can make on YOUR order.
If it is all right there and we missed it then it becomes our problem to fix it and make it right.
We work on an average of 2-3 costumes a day, I receive between 25 to 50 emails a day, no kidding :>) sometimes I will remember you, sometimes I will forget who I am.
That is why it is imperative that you do not make changes any where but on that measurement sheet.

Completion Time:

All of our designs are handcrafted to fit YOU. These are not ready to wear designs.

It is always a good idea to email ahead if you are needing 'special handling' of any sort.

Our completion time is based on our workload, we do our best to get the costumes out within 5 weeks, again it does not take us 5 weeks to make a costume that is an average timeframe of orders we have in front of yours. The date your order is slotted is based on when we receive BOTH the measurement sheet and payment which ever comes last.
If you have a set date you need your costume by note it on the measurement sheet again this is your lifeline to us. Certain things can cause delays and these things you should note:
a. Hurricanes (We do live on Tampa Bay! Really right on the water, no kidding!)
b. Our autistic son
c. Our health- we have been known to get sick from time to time.
d. Sizing- Over waist 45" or over 6' male or female- I template all of our costumes up to waist 45" or up to 6' tall if you are over that I must template a special pattern just for you-this takes time, so you will be waiting a little longer as much as 2 weeks longer- Now we have NO PROBLEM making them for you, but we can not complete the costume with time constraints.
e. Color changes- if you special order a fabric or request a special fabric add 2 weeks to your completion time.
f. Special designs or added items (peplums, sashes, etc.) add two weeks to completion.
Again we will contact you if we see any possible delays in completion time.

Refunds and Exchanges
There is a 48 hour window on our sales if we are not notified of a potential problem with a costume within the 48 hour window the purchase becomes "as is" There are some rules that because of past abuse we have had to implement, If you have to return a costume for a replacement.

c. Don't wear it
d. Be nice it will be reciprocated

missed, we run our costumes all year, protect yourself and order early or pay for
Express delivery to guarantee they will arrive on time.

<b>Cancellation: </b>
You Cancel
Life happens to everybody and some times things don't work the way we have planned and sometimes orders need to be cancelled. I don have a problem with cancellations as long as you work with me to cancel the order correctly. What that means, that we as a team go through Etsy to get the listing fees that we have paid back. We will charge a 10.00 up charge on all cancellations; this is not to punish you. This is for our time in setting you up in our system.

We Cancel
I reserve the right to refuse service.
Please do not make the mistake of thinking that I will not refuse payment or cancel your order if unreasonable demands are made..

As strange as this may sound, I don't believe in "The customer is always right", because too many people think that means "The customer is superior". I believe that any business relationship is a partnership. You are paying us for our time and designs, we are providing the best costume at the cheapest pricing.

Additional policies and FAQs
General Information or Things We Think You Might Want to Know Before Placing an Order:
We live on a fisheries Island, they smoke mullet here (no that not a bad hair cut) it a fish. Sometimes when the wind changes the air will have a sweet smoke smell like barbequed ham. (This is NOT cigarette smoke!!) To me, this is not a bad thing. I think it smells better than some of the natural fibers we use. However, since some people are sensitive I am mentioning it. The best remedy for this is airing it outdoors (or a delicate wash in Woolite if you don't feel that is adequate). No, I can not tell you when it will happen! Just that it can, so please keep this in mind when bidding. There will be NO REFUNDS just because you don't like the way it smells!
