Suggested reads about Costume Maker

What does a costume maker service include?

Costume-making typically includes taking your reference photos, breaking them down into the pieces of the character’s outfit, and sewing an instantly recognizable costume. Taskers usually do this in preparation for Halloween or costume parties, but they can also handle requests from entertainers and event planners.

The specifics of what a costume maker can or can’t do may vary, so it’s best to make your task post as detailed as possible. This step helps Taskers evaluate your request and also ensures that you book a Tasker who can execute your dream costume. In general, here’s what our costume makers can do for you:

Costume-making materials

Costume-making is a little like bespoke tailoring - your Tasker provides the fabric and sewing materials and works with you to come up with an outfit. When you book an appointment with a costume maker, all you need to do is show your reference photos. No need to provide any sewing tools or cloth - tell your costume maker who you want to dress up as. Ideally, you should provide photos from all angles so that your Tasker can make a more accurate pattern for the costume.

Depending on what you’ve specified in your task post, your costume maker can meet you in their shop, your home, or office. This makes costume preparation extra convenient!

Creating a pattern from reference photos 

Once you’ve given reference photos, your Tasker takes measurements and creates a pattern for the costume (or for each clothing item, if there are many). Whether you need a Harry Potter-inspired robe or a Disney Princess-type ball gown, your seamstress can put it together for you.

Putting the costume together

When each piece and garment of your costume has been cut and sewn together, it’s time to see the complete costume! Your Tasker may set up a fitting appointment so you can see the finished work. Then, you can suggest some adjustments or your Tasker can alter it to fit better. Once you’re happy with the look and feel of the costume, the Tasker turns over the costume and goes on their way. 

And now that you’ve prepared your costume, it’s time to get ready for the party! Airtasker can also help with other pre-event needs such as birthday gift delivery, event planning, and party helpers. For a more accurate touch to your costume, you can even work with a makeup artist so that you’ll look the part!
