I've been planning a very simple cosplay that consists of casual pieces that are pretty easy to find. I needed a black pleated skirt, but couldn't find any that weren't too short for my tastes. So, I scoured Etsy and found Eden Rassette. I hired her to do the pleated skirt (which ended up being $37 including shipping, a very good price), and about three weeks or so later, I got it! (My deadline wasn't even until November, so I was very pleasantly surprised.) It's absolutely wonderful and fits me perfectly. The fabric is so soft! The only quip I had was that the waistband was a little bulky for the top I'll be wearing (a close-fitting turtleneck), and she said she'll alter it free of charge. (All I have to do is pay for shipping, which is just a couple bucks, no problem at all.)

I'm very, very happy and will definitely hire her again when I need a great piece for a great price.


Final Grade:
A+!
