Any original costume or non-cosplay outfit you may have
clothing. This is our specialty and what we used to do in our
former physical store.
We sell clothing
patterns. Japanese clothing, cosplay, and normal stuff. If
we make it, we can pattern it for you.
Armor and weapons. In
certain cases we can design "armor" to be made out of fabric,
there are a few examples in our cosplay gallery. We don't do
anything made of metal nor large props.
Most gloves and footwear. This includes shoes,
boots, and gloves that cover each individual finger (we can make
fingerless gloves though).
Pre-made costumes. All the costumes
shown in our gallery are 100% custom made by
us and are one of a kind creations.
Wigs. We used to offer
a wig service but decided to concentrate more on our core business.
You bought the costume/clothing, it's yours, you can do what you want with it.
We don't mind if you use any

We'd appreciate any
acknowledgement for any event you may win, should you choose to do so.

For those of you who are
local to the area and who remember, we once had a physical store
located in Los Angeles, California, in the Little Tokyo area. It
was inside what's now known as the Little Tokyo Galleria, on Alameda and
3rd street, second floor, next to Japan Arcade.
As of February 2007, we've
closed it as Naomi herself wished to finally retire after 19 years of
managing her store.
We still operate online as Naomi still likes to sew in her retirement!

Naomi Alteration Service

Los Angeles, CA 90013
12:00 P.M. - 6:00 P.M.
Seamstress with 25+ years of
sewing and alteration experience.
Owned clothing and alteration
store in Los Angeles, California for 19 years.
Specializes in Japanese
clothing such as kimono, happi coat, and yukata.
This site is maintained not by Naomi
herself, but by her staff. She does all the sewing and clothing
design, we do everything else. Any email we receive the contents
are explained to her, we show her pictures of commission requests, and
handle payments. We speak, read, and write in fluent English, it's
just that Naomi doesn't (she speaks it but is not fluent), and is why we
do things this way.
Yup, we're cosplayers
ourselves. We also watch anime, read manga, and play videogames
and therefore are familiar with many characters and games that we all
know and love from the mentioned media.
Naomi's first online store after 19
years of running her Little Tokyo business. She always wanted her
own online business, but didn't know how. We decided to help her
out though :).
