Timeline (how long your order took to process)

Less than 3 months.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.

So it began with requesting quotes for a list of costumes, to which she replied insanely quickly, with not just the quotes but also how she would plan to make each part of each costume.

I finally made a decision in commissioning the two vests for the time being.

She was just awesome throughout, making sure that the vests turned out as awesomely as possible (Like hunting for the right materials over and over, as well as remaking one vest all over again. >_<)

Later on when they were done, the total price for both vests went up a little since better materials were used as well as more difficult methods when painting the designs at the back. She was nice enough to discuss a price we both can agree on, feeling bad that I had to pay more than originally intended.

Now, when it arrived (It arrived a little later than anticipated, but that's the fault of the delivery service in my country.), the denim vest fitted nicely and was super comfy! The leather vest was a little shorter than I expected, but I guess it was because I grew a tinsy bit over the months. XD Overall, both vests turned out great!

The poor girl was in a rush too, and yet they both turned out so beautifully. I will DEFINITELY be commissioning something from her again in the future!

Final Grade: A
