Timeline: July 27th-August 29th, so about one month. She got the cape to me about a week before I thought I need it, even though she went on vacation for a bit. I decided not to wear the cosplay to the con, though I was very tempted because I absolutely love this cape! (It's my home con, and I was afraid I'd run into non-cosplay friends on mass transit, and/or be harrassed by drunkards on mass transit, haha.) Anyway.


Describe your Experience.

Pros: Alina is the absolute best! I commissioned her to make my Fuu cosplay some months ago, and I decided to commission her for another costume piece when her price turned out to be favorable compared with others I'd questioned. Besides, I'd been incredibly satisfied with her work and communication before! Alina did not disappoint. Always kind, always helpful, and she chose the absolute most fitting cloth for this cape-- I swear, I once felt it and said to myself, "That is so Meryl." I highly recommend Alina to anyone looking to commission a costume. I've bought things off various ebay stores, I've commissioned Limebarb, Alina tops them all.

Cons: I can't think of any.

Final Grade: A+!
