So I am still unable to make a helmet for my celty cosplay...neither will I have the time for it! So I need to commission someone to make the helmet for me or sell one to me asap! There is this small cosplay meetup on 4/20 (anyone can come! So if you want details, just shoot me a PM. Its in Chicago, near Lincoln Park Zoo!) And I am attending it.
I will pay in cash and as far as delivery goes, if you come to the meetup I would like it dellvered there because who wants to pay shipping prices, really?
I will also pay upon the delivery of the helmet.
Please! If interested, please contact me via pm or by replying here!

Celty's helmet looks like this

So its to the time of the year where it is really crunch time for most people with prop making with only a month left. Finals coming up and what not; people are stufying, working overtime to make more $$ for ACen.

Helmet Option 1
Helmet Option 2

No matter what I think your going to be paying around $150 with the materials and time/effort
But should all I can think about since there is only a month left if it will arrive on time. :mellow:

See that's what I wanted to avoid. Actually buying the helmet online. If I commission someone for it, it will be much cheaper.
But thanks for helping me.

Nudging this topic! With ACen over and Midwest Approaching, I would really love to cosplay Celty! So I am still looking for someone to commission for her helmet!

Commissioning anything will certainly not be cheaper than ebay/China/Halloween Store/retail prices... It is a commission after all. Most commissioners will use a helmet as a base, and probably take it apart, if not build the entire thing from scratch. In which case, materials costs, labor and shipping have to be accounted for. Props and accessories, such as this, are usually sculpted and a mold is made. Then, it is cast in resin or whatever, fiberglassed and or covered in bondo and sanded and painted and sealed, etc. It is A LOT of work and A LOT of time (and money). Commissions will never be the same prices or less than online/etc prices.

There is an on going discussing about commissions and what to expect in terms of material costs and labor costs on cosplay.com here (I also posted it on the forums here, but it's just a tad outdated and overlooked): http://www.cosplay.c...ad.php?t=320820
