Let me help bring your dream cosplay to life! One of the most frequently asked questions that I get is if I take commissions. Absolutely! Some of my favorite props and costume pieces that I have made are commissioned pieces.
If you are interested in my work, please thoroughly read my process, terms and conditions outlined below before requesting a quote.
Getting a Quote
To start the commission process, please fill out the contact form below. I may email you a few more questions and request more reference photos if I am unfamiliar with the character before sending you an official quote with price breakdowns.
Please be aware that the initial quote may differ slightly from the original quote depending on changing material prices and labor time.
Terms and Conditions
Payment: A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to begin the commission to cover material costs. The second 50% of the cost is required before the commission is shipped out. The client is responsible for shipping costs and must be paid to receive tracking information.
Payments options are Paypal and Checks. Paypal account email is email@example.com. Funds sent through PayPal MUST be sent via Friends/Family. The client is responsible to reimburse me for any fees taken out for transactions not sent as Friends/Family. Make checks payable to Dominique de Leon.
Payment plans can be discussed for projects exceeding $1,000.00 or more.
If for whatever reason I am unable to complete a commission, ALL payments will be completely refunded, including the 50% deposit.
What to Expect from Me
Periodic pictures and updates to ensure that you are happy with the progress being made, sent via email or text, whichever is preferred. I will work with you to ensure that you are happy with the finished product. A commission estimate, an invoice for all payments and shipping will be provided for your records.
In some cases, measurements may be required from the client. By commissioning me, you understand that the replica I am creating may not be 100% accurate. Characters from movies, comics, and video games often have exaggerated features. The final price may vary from the estimate price quote depending on material prices and labor time. Any price increases will be discussed with the client before proceeding.
This is my profession. While it may seem like a costume or prop would be cheap to make, my experience and time that I put into creating them are not.
Please do not ask me questions like “What's the cheapest you can make _____ for?” or “What can you make me for $___?” or try to haggle with the price that I give you for a specific project. Inquiries of this nature will be ignored.
