Character commissioned and series/video game: Ultraman
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: http://www.facebook.com/p.php?i=1560...=1184085321565 I did attach it (maybe)
Timeline: April 09-July 09.

Pros: I contacted her in April, made two separate payments, so I don't think she started it until like late May. I was fretful about two things, why her quote was so low so worried about the quality and also if she could finish it on time. She has a measurement form for you to fill out and it makes it easy. But I added some other issues that I have with my body (big thighs and broad shoulders). She worked with me on that.

I was expecting her to use spandex, but she asked me if using synthetic leather. I told her sure, but had my doubts about it. It was awesome! Not as much stretch with spandex, but I think the color is better. It wasn't as hot as I thought it was going to be, it was very comfortable.

Cons: The zipper broke. Apparently Otakon 2009 there was a zipper pandemic going on with all my friend's costumes (different seamstress). Just as a curiousity, I let her know about it. I asked for boots and got boot covers. It wasn't that big of a biggie.

Comments: She only did the body suit, gloves, and boot covers, she didnt' do the mask. Considering how much she charged I was a little wary about the costume. She only charged me $160 + shipping $15. I was getting quotes for this costume in the $250-$600 range. Seeing the end result, I think she does a great job for the price. I'd definitely work with her again.

Final Grade: A
