Name of Commissioner: Sundancekat


Character commissioned: Vivaldi/The Queen of Hearts from Heart no Kuni no Alice/Alice in the Country of Hearts.

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: (note: the props were made myself)

Timeline: Contacted her at the beginning of January. Paid the end of February. Received the end of April (deadline was the end of May).

Describe your Experience:

Cons: None
Pros: Excellent and speedy communication.Well made costume, with incredible workmanship and attention to detail.

Comments: This was my first time commissioning, and I feel that I really lucked out with Katrina. She was excellent about answering my questions and describing how she planned to approach the costume in detail before any money changed hands. Throughout the process she kept in contact with me, sending me progress pictures and incorporating any of my requests, such as sending me a swatch of the fabric so I could match a paint color for my props to it, and adding in details like hidden pockets. I received my costume in plenty of time for my convention - almost a month before my deadline, and each piece was carefully packaged. It fit me as if she had tailored it to my own body, rather than working from the provided measurements.

I am so incredibly happy with how this costume turned out and received nothing but compliments at the recent convention I wore it to. I would definately commission Katrina again and would recommend her to anyone!

Final Grade:A++
