~ Our Masquerade ~


~ * ~

Welcome to our eternal masquerade, an art shop dedicated to the gothic fantasy attire and your stunningly beautiful characters.

We are not quite like other art shops in that we design your outfit for you.

Come and pick your theme, choose your colours, and we will create a masterpiece for your character and dress them in it.

The Fine Print:

                1. We ask for creative license for their outfit, so we do not require references for their attire.
                2. We will require references for your character - their hair, their eyes, their face.
                3. This is an art shop for waist up singles only. We may offer more later on through auctions.
                4. It is not first come first serve - we pick out clients carefully.
                5. Our work is a labour of love, so we take our time. Please allow us at least 2-3 months to finish your piece.






~ Our Offer ~

We have two options for you...

The first is for you to have full creative control over your commission.

Pick your own custom theme and colours, and we will work with you to create your masterpiece outfit.

The second is to pick from our featured themes & colours.
