Name of Commissioner: The Hag

Character commissioned and series/video game: Two sets of insignia patches - the Brotherhood of Nod sigil for my Engineer costume, and the X-Com insignia for my X-Com soldier costume.

The Engineer is from Command & Conquer, and the X-Com soldier is from UFO: Enemy Unknown (also known as X-Com: UFO Defense).

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item:

Timeline (how long your order took to process): From initial contact to final delivery, I'd say about seven weeks.

(Most of that was hashing out details of size, design, etc., with a wait of about two weeks to let payment clear before actual production started.)

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.

Pros: The Hag was a very pleasant to work with, and most professional as well. She kept me updated on the status of the project, and working out the details of the patch designs was a fairly simple process.

Cons: Contact was a little spotty in the beginning, but I think that was mainly due to my primary email provider silently discarding The Hag's emails. Fortunately, my backup email worked just fine.

Comments: I chose to get three of each design made - two for use, and one as a backup (in case something happened to one of the two primary patches).

Final Grade: A+ - would definitely work with The Hag in future!
