The first step is to provide me with some information about what you need. You can be as specific or general as you want, let me know what things you absolutely have your mind set on or things that you're not sure of and looking for guidance as to what would be best.
What type of performance - jazz dance, ballet en pointe, baton twirling, piano, etc.?
What song will you be performing to?
Do you have anything particular in mind (for example: 2-piece, halter, long skirt, pants, etc.)?
What color(s) do you like? Any that you don't like?
Do you have any design limitations (for example: large chested or need support/built-in bra)
Your height and size. Any body areas that you want to accentuate or camouflage?
Budget range (For example: $500-750 or under $1200). This will help me create a sketch with the best options available for your price range.
I will use the information you provide to create a sketch
Step 2: Sketch Review
Design sketches with price estimates will be emailed to you for feedback within about a week. Re-sketches and adjustments will be done to create your dream costume.
Step 3: Approval of Costume Design
Once you approve the sketch, I will send you a Paypal invoice for the deposit (which is 50% of the total) and a contract which will outline the total cost of the costume and the estimated completion date. I will mail you a sizing leotard and set up a convenient time to do the measurements together over skype or FaceTime.
Step 4: Delivery of Costume
Once completed, I will send you a photo of your completed costume via email. The balance of the costume must be paid in full before your costume will be shipped by Express Mail with insurance. If a personal check is sent for the balance, the costume will not be shipped until the check clears the bank.
Please see our Costume Care page for some general guidelines concerning proper care to extend the life of your new costume.
