We use many FX options ranging mostly from high end acrylics, stains, sealants, fabric and light spray paints to professional grade fabric safe blood FX and various gel FX to get the precise, accurate and desired effect on each costume. We are not responsible for any allergies or skin sensitivities to the costumes and we always recommend wearing undershirts for a comfortable, breathable fit.
We accept payments directly through Paypal or via Credit Card via PayPal processing as well as the Affirm financing platform.
We recommend that you do NOT wash our distressed costumes unless specifically noted. If needed please disinfect your distressed costume with Lysol or Febreeze and hang / airdry to maintain the custom added detail and keep in its original condition. DCATX is not responsible for any damage due to misuse or washing of your costume. View our costume care instructions included with your shipped costume for more details.
Absolutely! All we ask is that as a professional courtesy, if you use our work in any publicly displayed film or short, please credit Dark Creations ATX.
We offer FREE USPS/UPS shipping on all orders within the Continental United States (excludes Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico) . International shipping rates are calculated prior to ordering. We are unable to ship orders to Australia due to issues with customs. Please contact us or message us on Facebook with your location PRIOR to ordering and we will send you a quote.
All sales are final as we do not offer refunds due to the nature of our custom work. We custom make each piece so please consider your measurements and choices carefully before placing an order. We will email you pictures of your costume prior to shipping. Please contact us or message us on Facebook with any questions PRIOR to ordering.
