EDIT 2: So, I got a commission, and I had some free time so I drew the base for it! I think I'll have time next week for one more commission so if you've been wanting one for a while, send me a note! I've almost got my cosplay done!
EDIT: Found a vest for 15 bucks, even if it is a little dirty. Brought the cost of this down tremendously!
So...I went on a cosplay binge again. Or at least I was thinking about it. I want to SEE if I can do a cheap Marty McFly from Back to the Future before Waco's HOTCon/ComiCon, where I'll get to meet my high school best friend for the first time since we graduated. But I need $30 for the vest by itself. Everything else I can get for under ten bucks, so probably no more than 60-70 dollars total. I don't want to open commissions and then not get around to them until next year (unless you just really want a commission, in which case I applaud your patience), but I also don't really know what else to do to make some extra money. I could sell one of my Death Note wallscrolls and maybe the DBZ one I was hoping to get signed first, or maybe some other stuff. I'll even compile a list of stuff I'm willing to part with. Otherwise that's all I've got.
So here's the proposition. What would YOU give me money for? Would you want a commission that might take a few months to get done? Would you want merchandise I already own (within reason)? Do you have another idea?
Yes, I'm very shameless. But again, I just want to SEE if I can even do this before September. If not, no big deal. When I'm on a binge, nothing can stop me. It's not like I'm begging for money (okIkindofam) since I do want to give my services and or stuff in return. I'm just really dumb at raising money.
