Timeline: Commissioned on October 27. Finished prop received on November 25.
Experience: Asked her a ton of questions about production and materials for the cosplay prop, and she was polite and responsive to all of my questions. I had a special request for this sword: it is a long sword, but I needed it to disassemble to fit into my suitcase. She did a wonderful job making the sword so that the hilt and hand guard are removable for travel; you simply have to screw the hilt and hand guard back onto the sword! I am very pleased she was able to make this work; this cosplay would not be the same without the sword!
Final Grade: A
I recommend her for cosplay props, and I would definitely commission future cosplay props from her. The cosplay prop was crafted well and has a nice paint job.
