I don't do a massive amount of commissions for cosplayers - but the number does seem to increase a little from year to year. I just wanted to post something so here so I can link to it from other sites from time to time.
For this year, 2015, I am attending three cons which will eat up a considerable amount of my time, two of them are during my busy season, August to end of October, so I'm going to be a lot busier this year than usual. Because of that I wanted to let anyone know, who's interested in getting something made, I will have time from now, April 29th, until the first week of August to do any commission work. And after October as well.
Anything coming up last minute throughout August, September and October I will have to charge extra for since I'll have to spend extra hours above and beyond the nearly 20 hours a day I already put in during those months.
So if you want something made for something during those three months, best to let me know now as some things can take 2-3 weeks.
Also, just to let you know, this is already stated on the website but I'll restate it here. I have a standing deal for cosplayers requesting simple prosthetic commissions of buy one get one. The price you pay includes setup (sculpting, moulding time and materials) and the cost of one prosthetic, and I will throw in a second one for free.
And for cosplayers on a budget I have a deal in place that could allow you to recoup the cost of your commission. It's simple in concept, but in order to cover all the minor details it gets a little dense.
