Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience have a median salary of $38K. Those who have been around for five to 10 years can expect to take home more — $36K on average. On average, Costume Designers make $40K following one to two decades on the job. Respondents who boast more than two decades on the job don't boast commensurate pay, unfortunately; these veterans see average earnings of only $38K.
