Advice needed

If I were to be approached by the likes of an arts magazine wishing to feature my work how does that apply to photos of costumes I have created for customers? Do I have to seek permission from my customer to have a photo I took of the costume I created featured in the article? Or do I hold the right to feature photos I have taken of their costume?

Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

First stop; change your contracts/FAQs/etc to cover this so that your average furry joe doesn't go 'I'mma sue you' for imaginary damages and/or get 'surprised' when they find their character suits used in advertising media. They hire you to build their suit, any progress photography, presentation and portfolio photography can and will be used at builder's discretion for advertising and miscellany media purposes (such as a magazine).

Secondly; You took the photos? The photos are yours, as is the work. You don't need to seek permission UNLESS the model is not you/a mannequin or the photos are not yours (ie: A happy client sending you 'in action' shots.)

In that case then yes you need model releases.
