Name of Commissioner: Velvet Eden / Chibi-Kun on here

Website: http://www.freewebs.com/velvetedencosplay/

Character commissioned: Randel Orland (Pumpkin Scissors)

Links to picture(s): Hard to link to something I never recieved

Timeline: Over 6 months..

Describe your Experience: I was approached by Velvet Eden in relation to offering to commission Randels jacket and coat. We agreed a price and the communication was good. Until I sent the $130 deposit and then they all went quiet. Repeated emails were sent with intermittent replies normally along the lines of "Oh we are still working on it". They ignored my requests for photo's which was one of the conditions to me accepting them as commissioners.

I only seemed to get any response when I PM'd her on this website. Well time dragged on and they missed one deadline, promised to meet the next and lo and behold missed that too. Then recieved an email saying that she was no longer working for the company she had allegedly been commissioning for and I should take it up with them. The email address she gave was fake and so I just have had to write the money off.

Pros: Non

Cons: They are con artists and theives. Awful communication and horrible customer service.

Comments: Avoid like the plague!

Final Grade: F
