Labor now (2023) might be a bit more. Supply chain nightmares have been…interesting lately.
Need something made? Even a prototype or a pattern?
Let’s talk about your new custom costume, prop or prototype.
Whether it’s personal, for your business, or for an entertainment production, come talk to us about creating the item of your dreams. $24 Consultation, applied to your total.
DID YOU KNOW there is no such thing as an “average” cost for a custom costume, prop or product prototype?
Each is unique to its wearer, its budget, its event and its audience.
Yours will be unique as well.
During your appointment, our lead designers will ask you many questions. We take measurements and produce some thumbnail sketches. We need to hear and see all of your ideas. We need to understand what your product, prop or costume needs to do in terms of its form, function and appearance.
Please bring your company logos, accessories, fabrics or color swatches that should be included, plus images, sketches and other visual resources to help us calculate materials, time and labor needed for your project.
How is labor calculated?
Drafting, cutting, stitching and construction costs typically range anywhere from twice to five or more times the cost of materials, depending on the complexity of your design.
For example, a superhero or fantasy costume with a budget of $600 will be substantially different from a film-quality superhero or fantasy costume that has a budget of 6K or more.
When you meet with us, we can show you samples and pricing of items that our clients have commissioned.
Time to wear your fantasy. Or shoot your dream movie.
