Custom Commission Form
Most of the costumes in the cosplay section of the site started as commissions. Also, we have a costume blog which depicts some creations in progress and some customer photos (not all the customer photos are custom). Custom costumes are often not expensive, just a matter of choosing the right materials, accessories and basic starting patterns. Moon Costumes can create recognizable character representations in only a few weeks, but if you have any plastic molded pieces or foam that can add over a month to delivery time.
To do a commission, fill out the following form. This will create a “custom work order” for you, and an account. Don’t worry if you don’t get everything right the first time, you can edit it later.

Neck Measure a shirt with a collar that fits you well. Lay the collar flat, and measure from the center of the collar button to the far end of the button hole. The measurement in inches is your collar size. (Alternatively, measure around the base of your neck.)
Chest (Men’s) With arms relaxed at your sides, measure around your chest at the armpits, over the highest part of your chest and shoulder blades, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
Arm Bend your elbow 90 degrees and place your hand on your hip. Hold the tape at the center back of your neck. Measure across your shoulder to your elbow, and down to your wrist. The total length in inches is your sleeve length.
Overarm Measure around your chest including the fullest part of your arms at the highest point of your shoulder blades, keeping the tape parallel to the floor. If this measurement is 7 or more inches larger than your chest measurement, order the next larger size sportcoat to avoid binding in the upper arm and shoulder area.
Bust (Women’s) If possible, get a friend to help. With arms relaxed at your sides, measure the fullest part of your bust, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
Stand in stocking feet with your feet slightly apart and your back to a wall. Measure from the floor to the top of your head.
Measure around your waist, in your underwear, at the point where your trousers would normally ride. Keep one finger between the tape and your body.
Stand with your heels together, and measure around the fullest part of your hips, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
Select a pair of your best-fitting pants of a similar material. Measure from the crotch intersection to the bottom. The number of inches, to the nearest half-inch, is the inseam length.
Regular, Short, or Long Rise?
Rise is the distance from your front waist to your back waist by way of your crotch. Choose:
- Choose Long Rise if you are 6’1″ or taller, high-waisted, or want more “depth.”
- Choose Short Rise if you are 5’7″ or under
