FAQ, Disclaimers and Policies

Last updated: January 15, 2020

You may not reproduce or redistribute my patterns, tutorials, website content, or other materials for sale.
If you have any concerns/inquiries/questions, please contact me at sara@cestlasara.com.

—Are you selling (insert costume here) ? —
No, sorry! I will make announcements on my social media feeds if I am selling anything.

—Can you make me a costume ?—
I am not currently open for commissions at this time. Feel free to contact me at sara@cestlasara.com for any project or collaboration proposals.

—How do I print your PDF file to the scale that I want?—
Please visit my tutorial for more info.

—Do you do armor patterns/commissions?—
No, at this time I only draw patterns for weapons and props. I may in the future release armor patterns I have previously crafted for myself. Every human body type is unique and armor patterns would have to be readjusted and drawn accordingly to fit your body’s natural contour and specifics. My prop patterns are easily scalable for adjustment as opposed to body armor!

—How do you use these patterns?—
Please see an example here on how I used my patterns for creating a cosplay prop.
There are also lots of video tutorials on the internet on how to use patterns as templates for your next props!

—Is this an official product?—
My work and listings are unofficial products not associated with any company unless specifically stated. This is classified as fan art under fair use.

—May I use your pattern to make a physical prop / cosplay piece to sell?—
The files obtained from me are for personal use only — Please do not redistribute these patterns without prior consent.
However, yes, you may commission physical pieces using my patterns. All I ask is a simple favor: Please credit and tag me in your work where possible!

—May I use your pattern to make a 3D model or 3D printed physical object to sell?—
The files obtained from me are for personal use only — Please do not redistribute these files and modify my work without prior consent. I prefer that you make your own model from scratch using your own reference images as your main canvas base if you want to make and sell your own version model. However, all I ask is a simple favor: Please credit and tag me in your work where possible!

—May I use your pattern to make a new vector to sell?—
The files obtained from me are for personal use only — Please do not redistribute these files and modify my work without prior consent. If you have purchased my file, *AND* you do not copy exactly every single line detail I have put into my original vector PDF file, this is OK. I prefer that you make your own vector pattern from scratch using your own reference images if you want to make and sell your own version pattern. I know my drawing style and I can determine if there is an occurrence of this taking place.
