I know someone who was going to make a adult mens complete outfit, everything sans the roach, for about $1,800. A child is much smaller so the amount of materials and work are scaled down a bit.

Just my 2 cents. I myself am not a beadworker or good at sewing, but my line of work puts me in the same situation of how much to charge after materials. I'm basing the above with how I see my gf's family handle orders for outfits and beadwork.
So what is defined as a 'complete' Men's Traditional outfit?

Just in case I win the lotto. LOL
