Information

This commission was for a tailored duchess satin jacket with matching belts. It's fully lined and finished with hand made bias binding. The binding has all been stitched down by hand to give a perfect finish. The front is done up with 5 hand sewn snaps.

The embroidery on the shoulders was sewn free hand on my machine, and the embroidery on the collar was done by hand in a satin stitch. The embroidery was designed based on the reference pictures given and to match the belt and button designs.

The embroidery work you have done is gorgous!

You've made a really gorgous jacket. The details really make it!

This is amazing. When I was a lot younger I wanted to cosplay all of Squall's costumes (I made like 3 or 4?! haha) so to see it at this standard is fantastic. :)

@ Leonie Heartilly- I'm glad I've passed the fan test! I'm only working off the references I was given by the commissioner which makes it hard to get details sometimes as I don't know as much about the character, but it's nice to know I've got it right. @Miiol- Thanks very much! I don't really control the commissions I get/take, so I hope I have something else you like soon :p @MattDark- Glad to hear it! It's nice to get the commissioner commenting on the costume so people know your opinion of it. After all it's kind of the one that counts in the end. XD -Tab

Is the £150 the price of the commission? If it is, then whoever commissioned this got a real bargain!

KhaosKreator posted on 23 June, 2010 - 23:33
Yes that's the price of the commission. I find I'm expensive compared to a lot of cosplay commissioners, but when compared to the price of what something would be in a clothing shop I'm actually much cheaper. Especially men's jackets. -Tab

I don't mean to suck up but really, looking at the quality of your work, your pricing seem very fair, maybe even cheaper than I expected. If anyone thinks it's too expensive, they probably have no idea the amount of time and skills it takes to complete something that's totally customised rather than made by machine or by children in sweatshops.
