Plume Holders:

If you need plume holders added to the back of the wire work, they are $1.00/each plume holder.
Say you intend on putting 4lbs of plumes on the collar that is roughly 320 feathers. That means we would have to make 320 individual plume holders and solder at least 320 additional joints on the collar. You would be looking at adding the cost of the plume holders ($320) to the wire work cost. You can save money by putting fabric on the back of the wire work and trimming the edge of the wiring with about 2.5lbs of plumes, but you would have to hot glue the feathers to the edge.

Waist Pieces:

Design & Wire-work by John Zeringue

A Wire Belt Harness is made and we require the person wearing the wire work be present for both initial and final fittings. Wire work armatures are added to the wire belt to create a waist piece. The size and detail of the design reflects how the work is priced.

 

Head Pieces:

Wire armatures added to the skull caps to create the a headdress / head piece are priced according to the design.

 

All Prices are approximate starting figures, if you or requesting a custom order, the price will be higher based on any rush orders. Prices reflect approximate wirework costs only. If you are placing an order for a completed costume prices of additional labor and materials will be assessed upon placing the order. Additional unforseen labor and material costs maybe added to your final invoice.
