TERMS OF SERVICE
Please read over our terms of service before you order
By accepting to work with us by making your first payment you are in agreement with these terms.
We work from our house and have multiple rabbits and a cat. They are kept outside of the workroom, however, dander and fur can still make its way into the room due to their proximity.
Quotes do not hold or bind in a commission slot agreement. In order to get an accurate quote, you must provide ONE clean digital non-shaded 2-3 view concept art of your character. If you wish to give Salty Bunny Costumes artistic freedom when it comes to your commission, then it is not required and we will work with you to come up with a design. See our price guide for our base prices. Complex designs result in higher quotes. A Quote form will open approximately one month before a commission opening and will be available on the homepage of our website.
You must be over the age of 18 to enter an agreement with us. NO EXCEPTIONS. An ID must be presented via email to confirm both your age and identity. Suits will be completed in the order they were received (all items are first paid, first served). You do understand that you are ordering a one of a kind, hand made piece of art made by an artist. They may and can contain imperfections, flaws and inconsistencies.
You must first receive a quote to be considered for a commission.
You must make your first payment immediately after being accepted in order to secure your commission slot on our queue.
Once your commission has been accepted, your order is final. Be 100% sure with what you want before placing your order. We won't allow any changes to be made after the order is made. Please clarify any extras or details you would like during the quote process.
The fit of your costume strongly relies on your DTD being made correctly and the requested measurements being accurate. Head bases are outsourced from Chickaspree (our official base maker). To ensure your head fits properly you must provide Chickapree with the correct measurements.We are not responsible for poor sizing if you provide a poor DTD or incorrect head measurements.
Your DTD must be made with a painters suit and durable duct tape.
You must send your DTD in order for work to be started on your commission. The longer it takes to receive the DTD, the longer the delay.
To make a DTD you will need a painters suit, paper towels, and 3-6 rolls of duct tape. During the entire taping process your feet should be just over shoulder width apart and your arms should be directly outward in a T pose. (use a shelf or a tall chair to help hold up your arms).
Put on the painter's suit and gather where the extra material of the painter's suit is and tape over it with a few strips in each baggy area (if any) to make it fitted to the actual shape of your body.
Next you will wrap your left foot in paper towel and begin taping all around your foot using strips of duct tape and lead up the ankle to the leg using a cross hatch pattern with the tape. Do the same with your right leg but start at the ankle instead. You do not need to tape the right foot.
Continue the cross hatch tape pattern all over the body. Please make sure to not make it too tight or too loose. The wearer should be able to breathe comfortably
Once you start taping the arms make sure you are taping them in a T pose 90 degrees from your body. Wrap Your wrists and part of your hands with paper towel and tape all the way to the thumb knuckles.
Mark your elbows, knees, beltline and tailbone and then carefully cut the DTD down the arms, legs and middle just enough to allow the wearer to exit.
You then will retape the DTD after cutting yourself out of it. If your DTD isn't retaped together, you will be charged a $50 fee for the time to prep it. Once the dtd is finished please write your name and associated username/character name.
You do not need a DTD if your commission does not involve a bodysuit
USD currency only. All payments through Square.
A 30% NON-REFUNDABLE down payment is required to confirm your commission spot as discussed. We also offer payment plans if needed. These are paid in installments. You must make a payment of $500 or more in a discussed plan until month prior to completion. The total needs to be paid in full within 3 months time. A late fee will be added each time a payment is late. If you miss 2 payments in a row, your commission will automatically be cancelled. NO EXCEPTIONS. Nothing is started on until the costume is paid in full.
If you wish to pay off your balance in one large payment, please let us know. We prefer this option.
A sales tax of 8.25% will be charged to the purchaser at time of purchase for all goods and services.
There is no refund on the initial 30% deposit. Once the costume is completed, there is no refund option. If the commission was cancelled during production the refund may vary on how much progress and time was invested. We hold the right to refuse and refund in full at our own discretion.
We do not accept deadlines.
The average wait time while commissioning Salty Bunny Costumes is 1-3 months after the final payment is recieved. Ask at the time of, or before, commissioning to see how many people are in the queue and what the current predicted wait time is.
