 Costume Commissions
1700 French Period CostumeI can design custom costumes to fit your needs. Custom costuming will require a consultation fee in advance. Custom costumes include:

Period costumes

Character costumes...great for Cosplayers who can't sew!

Stage Costumes

This is basically when I design a one-of-a-kind costume just for you, sew it up in your exact size, and send it to you. During cosultation, I will run ideas by you, as well as fabric and trimming ideas. After consultation, I will give or send you the actual design. If you approve, we will sew it up!

Please e-mail me at info@rustyssnakeskin.com for more information.

Yes, I will ship out of state, but no, I do not accept personal checks from out of state. Please send a cashier's check. Don't whine or get mad. They aren't hard to obtain, especially if you buy groceries from a grocery store anyway...you can get one while you're there. This also pertains to North California.


 If you have a pattern you wish for me to sew for you, I will require you to ship me the pattern with your size information (I will not size you, so you need to do this by yourself. It is not hard...just read the back of the pattern envelope). You can also send me the fabric you wish to use...but if you wish for me to pick it out, the fabric will come from your expense.

I will not ship you the costume until it is paid for. Fair and square, people.Late 1800 Bustle Period

I do not provide: masks, weapons or props, shoes (unless they are sewn from the pattern), makeup, or wigs. I will only provide costume jewelry if it is part of the costume or it is part of a custom costume.

You must order the costume at least four weeks in advance. For multiple orders, I suggest ordering well ahead of that...say, two to three months, depending on how many costumes you want me to make. For Halloween, I would suggest ordering well ahead of that time, since as soon as I'm booked I will not accept any more orders...! So that means the time you'll get your costume is: 4 weeks (for me to make it) + shipping time (at least ten days if you don't overnight it). If you absolutely need a costume in a hurry, the latest I will accept orders is 2 weeks, and I'll overnight it. Beware! This is gonna cost ya, and I'm not going to guarentee hurried orders.

 I will only accept returns for repairs if: a seam pops, something isn't finished, something falls off, or if it needs altering. I will fix it and return it to you. I will not accept returns because you: just don't like it, changed your mind, someone at the shipping company screwed up, or because you went and spilled something on it or something else beyond my control. The pictures dipict the final outcome of the costume accurately, so if you don't like it now, it won't change, so don't order!

 I am not responsible for shipping errors. Make sure all the info you give me is accurate.
