Description: in Pasig, perhaps?

Hi, I've read recent suggested places sa pagpapagawa ng costumes but tanong ko na lang din: are there any costume makers located sa Pasig? Dun kasi ako nakatira and Im not exactly an adventurous person, di ako palalabasin ng parents ko so I have to rely on near places na puede akong sumama with them...suggested places will be very much appreciated. The seamstress who made my Sumomo costume (she actually makes curtains, not costumes..) moved na and I don't want to bother her anymore (pero kung desperado talaga ako...lol)
Wigs din sana and shoe-makers (specifically boots, pero below the knee lang naman ung needed ko). Would you guys know possible shops specializing on them along Pasig rin?
I hope anyone can help me. Thanks. :)
Para mas specific...

Ok will look into it. Stores that specifically amke costumes are pretty rare and usually located on or near divisoria where all the cloth sources are located.
IF you can find a local seamstress or tailor in your area, you can take your chances with them. Usually with proper supervision, you can have them recreate your costume accurately. But by experience, most tailors would ask you to buy the specific cloth for them, in which the cheapest ones are located in Divisoria.
Polonce (the cosplayer who did Shiva/Kerrigan) usually conduct cosplay sources tours and if ever she announces the next tour session, you can ask your parents permission to join since there's always safety in numbers.

You can try looking for your cosplay materials at megamall or robinsons galleria. i recalled a member here mentioning Arneli's in robinsons that sells wigs. The downside in shopping in malls is that it will might cost you more than making the trip, say, to Divisoria (wigs in arnellis are 3000+ ata, cloth in the Castle and Fabric Warehouse stores are a lil bit expensive too.).
If you're somewhere near Rosario, Pasig, i recalled seeing a seamstress there right across the church...if i recall correctly, they have a mannequin at their display window.
A bargain place that you can go to that is near pasig is araneta center/cubao - from ukay ukay to the marikina shoe expo, you could find some of your cloth/boots there. You can probably find a good deal in marikina shoe expo for custom-made boots...or you can try your hand in altering a pair of majorette boots ^.^

Thank you for all the help! *bows*
My mom called me just now and she said she talked to a costume-maker in Pasig Market. I believe they discussed already on how the outfit would look like but I need to have more pictures because some details can't be seen (I only saw it now..bleh). The seamstress makes costumes for UN celebrations for kids but I do hope she'll make an exception for me, tee-hee.
So far, the best bet I have on wigs (which is near my residence) is that one in Robinson's. I hope to find other alternatives since my allowance budget for the hair is unfortunately mga P800 lang...chin-length or near shoulder-length lang naman ung wig...wouldn't it be cheaper? O sadyang mahal lang talaga ang wigs? ^^;;;

Presea: Di pa eh...masyadong malayo sa bahay namin, di pa naman ako allowed magliwaliw kung saan saan so dun lang ako sa malapit sana. Huy, I'd be very very grateful if you would do that for me pero kung di talaga kaya, hwag na lang ha. Kahiya eh. I don't want to be an inconvenience to you. Alam ko naman na sobrang busy ka lately. :)

If you're looking for relatively cheap colored (or even natural colored) wigs in a mall, I suggest you try SM Megamall. In the department store look for the section where they display "Sathura" wigs. The wigs are good. I've bought from them two sets already, although I haven't try the colored wigs yet (and I've been itching to! :P ). The short wigs cost around P500-1000 and the long ones are P1000-1300.
Hope that helps!
