Terms of Service
Twilight Knights Cosplay strives for customer satisfaction while making sure it remains profitable. When purchasing anything keep in mind that all items in those stores are handmade with love and care. Each item takes time to be crafted and are custom made to order so slight variations may occur even when ordering duplicates.
Due to the nature of this business, we request that all customers credit the part or parts of the costume(s) that were made by us. Please do not resell, trace, re-mold, or claim that you have made the items you purchased from us. The internet is vast and you will eventually be caught and legal action may be pursued.
On commissions under 250$ USD payment must be received within 3 days of the purchase order or the order will be canceled. For regular commissions, a 30% non-refundable downpayment is required upfront, if the payment is not received within the 30 day grace period of the "Holding Fee" your order will be canceled and no refunds will be given. If a customer on a payment plan is late on their payments a 5% late fee will be applied to every month that the customer is late, in addition, the will be moved down in the queue a number of slots equal to the missed payments. If a customer misses 3 payments or fails to answers any messages for an equally long period they will be removed from the queue and no refund will be given. In the event a customer purchases a premade costume or suit (this includes sales of used costumes/suits) payment must be received within either 3 business days, 2 weeks, or one month according to the terms of the sale. Failure to comply will result in a cancellation with a maximum refund of 50%. A 13% HST sales tax is applied on all transactions, this is non-negotiable and non-refundable.
We accept Paypal, etransfer, and debit/credit via Stripe. When payment is received your order shall be marked so, please allow up to 3 days for payment statuses when paying by etransfer to be updated.
Shipping is not included unless otherwise stated. Shipping that is included on orders is standard shipping which does not include insurance or a tracking number. If your purchase is lost in the mail their is nothing that we can do unless you had upgraded to a shipping service that includes a tracking number or insurance. To upgrade your shipping service please contact us for prices prior to us shipping.
Furthermore as the buyer you are responsible for any and all duties, taxes, customs and/or import fees that may occur. In the event an item exceeds the estimated or prepaid total for shipping we will contact you to request further payment, should you refuse to pay or be unable to pay your items may be withheld until payment is made. If you wish to cancel you will be refunded to the value of the product but not the shipping. The product in question will than be put up for sale unaltered unless the design is of a character you own in which case minor alterations will be done though it will largely be kept the same.
We do not offer refunds on items that were lost or damaged due to shipping as these are things beyond our control. Refunds are applicable on items over 100$ ONLY we cannot stress this enough, the amount that is refunded is taken case by case and up to our sole discretion, however the maximum that we can refund is 60% of the original value. The other 40% that is non-refundable as it goes to cover the cost of materials and partial labour. Please note that shipping and tax are never refunded. We do not offer refunds on items/designs that were approved of by the client, nor do we give provide free alterations that are deemed unreasonable.
Items are made in a smoke-free studio however we do have pets however they are hypoallergenic meaning they either do not produce much dander or have hair instead of fur. If you have severe allergies or wish to inquire as to the breed or species of our pets please contact us. Thank you.
Prior to shipping orders, we will send you photos of your order for approval. Should you wish any changes to be done we will do them to the best of our ability free of charge (unless the revision request is deemed unreasonable). You can get up to three revisions before we begin to charge for the alterations. In the event you choose to not pay for further revisions we will ship the order without any further photos. On smaller orders (under 100$) revision requests will be done at our sole discretion. This policy exists to protect the business from incurring financial losses from potentially difficult customers.
If a listing (Etsy/dealers den/etc) has an option allowing for a choice of style/size/colour/etc and no option is picked we will contact you regarding your choice. Should you fail to respond within 3 days we will assume we have artistic liberty and choose the style/size/colour/etc. No refunds or exchanges are given in these events.
