Timeline (how long your order took to process): Paid in July due mid-September

Describe your Experience:
Pros: She seemed pretty decent with communication, and from what I saw in her galleries, she looked promising, but…

Cons: After paying in full, communication practically DIED, and every time I sent her a PM or something, I wouldn’t get a response until way later even though she had signed onto this site. She has also been avoiding me on AIM, and I assume she has blocked me. I have progress shots (I can show them if you want) that aren’t very promising as the flames don’t look like flames. I’m just very disappointed as I was told that it’d be shipped this past Friday…I have yet to receive it.

Comments: Buyer beware at this point.

Final Grade: Pending, however I’m leaning heavily towards F-.

Edit #1:
Have talked to commissioner and have tracking number for costume. Will update review once I receive it and see how it all fits. Pictures above are early updates of costume. Will post Final pics once I receive it today.

Edit #2:

I received the costume this week. I got it on Tuesday the 11th. The costume did not fit correctly and have contacted the commissioner. I have received a $100 refund due to the lateness of costume since I do need it for AWA next week. She is also remaking the parts of costume that didn't fit (obi belt, undershirt, kimono b/c the flames were not good). I have been told to expect it in my hands on Monday of next week. I will give another update then about the status of it.
