|Mirror, Mirror, please tell me my beatifull future!|
|1. What are your Keyblades/Weapons made of?|
I get this question very often
Okay, the core is mostly cardboard or wood (depending on the size). The body is Styrodur, which is a special kind of styrofoam, which I cut into the right shape. Then there are several layers of papier maché and sometimes wood flour.
The rest is mostly painting and varnish.
Oh, and of course love
I've experimented with a lot of different ways to build a cosplay weapon and I found out that this one brings the most satisfying results. They are light, look good, are not against the law (some country's have a weapon replica law) and they are comfortable to hold.
2. Are you taking Commissions?
Yes, I am. Though there is a limited amount of commissions I can accept. This is because I try to have something of a real life, but mainly because it is
against the law to accept more than 10 commissions in my country.
I'm only taking cosplay accessory and prop commissions.
Like blades, helebards, guns etc.
I'm not sewing. I just don't think I'm good enough and there are plenty more skilled people out there.
3. How are your prices calculated?
I calculate the costs for the materials and the time and work I put in them.
So, for example, a Kingdom Keay is cheaper than an Oathkeeper.
I always try to make it as cheap as possible for you, as I know that cosplayers are not the richest people around. Though taking a long time to decide if you will pay or trying to lower the price is impolite in my eyes. Even if we're on the internet the basic laws of manners should be kept.
4. How about Shipping Costs?
Well, that's a bit of a problem. I am no professional seller, so I have to use the normal post office.
Some examples for the shipping costs:
United Kingdom: 17€
(feel free to use google to calculate it in your country's currency)
Again, I'm very sorry about those costs, but I really can't do anything about them!
6. Some examples of my work:
And ome things I wanted to say...
It is always very kind of you to ask me for a commission. I always take my time and calculate the price for the weapon, I look up the shipping costs to your country and I will often convert this into your currency for you (again: use google, it's just a two-click-thing).
So please, please be equally as kind and REPLY to that! I understand that some prices may scare you away, but it is just polite to say "Oh, I'm sorry, but I can't afford it" I'm a student, I know what it means to be short on money. And I won't chew your head off
All my weapons are handmade. I am not a machine, even if I try to make them as accurate as possible, mistakes are still possible and the colour can differ very much due to different computer settings.
I very much prefer Paypal for payment
