So far this year has been non stop making commissions after my contract ended at GAME late February, I have broken my old sewing machine with the amount of sewing I have had to do. I've gained lots of experience using worbla for armour making as well as new sewing techniques for different types of fabrics I've had to use to meet customers needs.
A lot of MLP fans have come to me and asked for all sorts of cosplay and I have had a few anime fans too, it's been a great experience learning how to deal with customers and coming up with some original designs and ideas. Although I have enjoyed it I would say to anyone starting out doing cosplay commissions is to be prepared for really dumb and simple questions to be asked by customers, also remember there are some horrible people out there that will say something's that can put you down but so long as you cover your ass and stick to a policy it will be fine.
That being said, I am now opening up my own etsy shop: CosplayTreats where I will be putting most of the random cosplay things I make or one of a kind costumes. I will also sell my costumes on there and my own stock when I make enough.
Was awesome, it was our first time vendoring and we managed to make a huge profit, gain over 70 commissions, win the cosplay competition for best craftsmanship and overall cosplay, party hard and drink lots. A big thank you too all the staff and security who helped us so much with various things and to Yami for being a fantastic host at the cosplay catwalk. Which Half-Pint-Hero and I went to as Luna and Celestia. We wore our heelless heels for the whole Con, which I am very proud of.
The four of us who put so much effort and hard work into making all the merchandise to sell at the con have decided to make a little business called:
"The Goodie Wagon" which is all under work in progress at the moment as we are just doing the finishing touches to all the websites we are opening, but we are going to be selling a range of things such as:
Cosplay Clothing, Sweaters, Polo Shirts, Hoodies, Cosplay Accessories, Helmets, Armour, Weapons, Plushies, OC Plushies, Artwork, Phone Cozys, Bracelets and Jewellery, Bottle Openers, Badges, Key rings, Glasses, Ears and Tails, Stickers and much, much more.
We take commissions for nearly everything so don't hesitate to ask!

ReCon has come and gone so fast, this year we did it in style as Fran and Balthier from Final Fantasy 12, it was a bit rush to finish the costumes but Jordan helped out a lot and I'm amazed of how quickly he caught on! We entered the cosplay competition but didn't win anything but it was nice to see lots of old and new faces. It was a weird experience walking practically half naked with my bum out walking to the little con, having to go through a massive shopping centre and high street, but it was fun non the less.
And even though I had heels on I still felt really short!
My aim is to surprise and entertain
There is no limit to what we can do
