Once the concept has been refined and the design work completed, a proposal is written for the client. This proposal consists of the completed character sketch and a written breakdown of the materials and features of each element of the character costume. A cost for each element is also included along with the approximate delivery date, any optional features available such as cooling fans or shipping cases and terms of payment.
The proposal is then sent to the client for final approval. If the design and proposal are approved, we begin building the character. If there are major changes to the design, a new sketch and proposal are worked up and submitted to the client. Work on the character can begin only when the entire proposal is approved by the client.
