Character: Wig of Franziska von Karma/Karuma, Mei (Phoenix Wright 2/Gyakuten Saiban 2)
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: Haven't even gotten a progress shot...
Timeline (how long your order took to process): I first inquired around early/middle of Feb 2007
. It took a while, and finally ordered, paid and signed contract around the last week of Feb 2007
. Wig was due May 20th
. I have gotten nothing yet. And May 25th is the date of the con I was supposed to wear this wig to.
Pros: Website was clean, looked professional, even had a contract.
Cons: Deadline missed completely
. I do not try and bother my commissioners because I know they have work, college, a life, etc. I did not contact this commissioner until after sending the payment and contract signed back to her. Then on May 12, figuring the time was right to ask for a progress shot. No reply. I emailed once more on the 18th, and again on the 20th, asking civilly if the wig was done, that I request it be airmailed to me as said in the contract when the wig was not done on time or such. I have still received no reply, and I fear I will not be able to wear the wig and costume to the Fanime Con on May 25th. I am still awaiting a reply. I understand that life gets people down, but how long does it take to shoot an email back, especially with a contract?
Final Grade: D (I may or may not change the grade depending on if/when I get the wig.)
For now this is a tentative review, but I feel it is fair to let others know both good and bad sides of commissioners.
