The first project is actually top secret so I can't reveal it until the buyer is ready to release that information. The second, I'm not sure about but we'll have to see. We only began our email discussions this morning so it's not even a firm deal yet.
For now, thank you for all your support with the new website and I'm glad that some of you who only want to read about the costumes are still finding this little blog helpful. Quite often the questions I get are answered with the same stock response, "just join up at thesuperherocostumingforum.com and hundreds of us will be able to help you with your project." It's true. I'm only there about once a week now but it's a vital website, just like the League of Heroes. You don't have to be working on a superhero style costume to join or ask questions. We have our share of G.I. Joe and horror projects among the board members and galleries.

Posting a response just so my real fans can see what I put up with. I'm no longer fat & unhealthy. At a healthy weight for my height & cholesterol & blood pressure are textbook after years of being near 200 lbs.

The customer commissioned just the black bodysuit in the style worn by Marvel's Black Cat, Felicia Hardy. I am not responsible for any of the accessories nor the fur trim which the customer will be adding later. So basically, I had it pretty easy but after having my confidence shaken a few times, I was nervous about delving back into taking commissions.
Here are my suggestions for the other elements of the suit if anyone else is looking to put one together (links naturally may break after original posting due other people's website dynamics):
Wig: I've switched from bestwigoutlet to cosworx.com because the prices are usually better; it's just harder to navigate around the site looking for color swatches but price usually wins. Plus cosworx is somehow related to cosplay.com which has a trading post/marketplace forum where you can find used and new wigs (and lots of other things).
Mask: I use Lance at XtremeDesignFx.com for that; he offers the perfect mask for Black Cat or Ms. Marvel among all of his other work. I do find that ordering takes a long time so keep that in mind.

This leaves fur for the gloves/sleeves and the collar.

On a happy note, I was at Phantom of the Attic for Free Comic Book Day and got loaded up with my monthly stack plus a few of the freebies. I have tons of reading to get to now that I can't get anything on my computer to work.
