Even what you perceive as a bad commission might be wonderful compaired to others or in other people's oppinion. I think that when we get this deep into it you miss out on the whole point in cosplaying.
Commissioning is a business. If you paid someone to paint your living room wall red, and they just threw blue paint all around, didn't do anything neatly, got it all over your carpet, etc, would you say, "These are people who are working hard to give you what you ask for. Some are better than others at what they do, but it was your choice to work with them."
Really, yes, it's our choice to work with them, but if we have an experience that we disliked, it's also our right to voice the fact that we were dissatisfied so that it can help other people make an informed decision about who THEY go to for their costumes.
