Introducing The Costumers Group: Intro FeatureIntroducing The Costumers GroupIntroducing The Costumers Group: Intro Feature by Verdaera
There are many groups out there promoting art features for artists of 'all styles', but usually these groups focus primarily on traditional art, and I've noticed a lack of this style group for the craft artisan. I've also noticed many many cosplay groups, but none primarily for Costumers, or the promotion of this elaborate art form. Thus, The Costumers Group was born.
There are many forms of art. Our canvas is the Human Body... and sometimes the Elf Body, or the Faun Body... Our medium is fabrics, plastics, metals and gems. Our works tend to take months at a time to complete, to create a unique image of a character. Please enjoy this first feature, small as it may be, from a few of our members.
Please stop by our group if you are interested in joining or want to see more of our art! The purpose of this group is to create a community of Costume Artists; for those who are interested in the works of o

P.S. Please note! I AM NOT A COSPLAYER!!! Those of us who have been involved in the art of costume making, especcially in the professional level guilds, have always known our art to be Costuming. "Cosplay" is a relatively new fad that technically means "Costume Role-play" and the focus is not necessarily on the costume, but on the activity. Wearing a costume and posing for pictures also is not necessarily cosplay. As one who focuses on the artform of making a complete character look, I am a Costumer and would prefer being refered to as such. Thank you for understanding!|
Also, I do not do commission work. If I have anything for sale, it will be posted to my journal
-STOCK- Please note, my work is not stock art. I have had a few people use my work as such in a taseful manner though. If you want to use my work as stock, please ask permission first. Don't use it in any inappropriate manner, and credit me! The costumes I make are hand-made and took a lot of work.
