Commissioner wanted
I'm looking for a UK based commissioner as all the US ones are really expensive once you add shipping (plus supporting UK cosplay scene WHOO )

Its nothing too extravagent; just the sundress Ranka Lee wears in Macross Frontier

I'd make it myself but sewing machine as went kaput and really can't afford to replace it right now

What's your idea of really expensive? I'm open to comissions at the moment so I was wondering what kind of figure you would be looking at.

well all the US commissioners i spoke to wanted between £100-£200 before shipping which i thought was a little steep :S

I dont mind paying for quality but i think £200 for something quite simple is a tad extreme :S

I would be happy to make that for, say... £25 + p+p?

When would you need it by?

I could definately do it for a lot less than £100, though it depends on your choice of fabrics.

I can do it in a really light cotton, which would need to be lined because otherwise it might be a bit see through, but it would have the floaty summer dress feel to it. I can also make it out of a suiting fabric, which would still have the drape of dress in the photo, but be thicker. That could be made without a lining, but can be lined if you want it as it would make a warmer dress more suitable to the UK weather. In the reference pic the inside of the dress looks to be a pale pink, so I think it would be cute to have the lining in pink if you want it.

If you're interested check out the quality of the stuff I do in my main gallery and send me an email at so I can quote you properly.

um, you can get a perfectly decent sewing machine for less than the cost of commissioning a nice costume. Unless you're going for a fancy computerised embroidery set up, or an overlocker, £100-£200 will get you a great machine that can do pretty much anything you need, especially if you shop around. Go for a second hand or refurb and you could probably get a decent machine for £50
