Timeline (how long your order took to process) :
Several months, but I had asked for it that far in advance. I got it in time and that's what's important to me.
Describe your Experience:
Great commissioner. I love Indra's work and when she posted she was willing to take on commissions, I hopped on board. She's pretty quick to respond - usually within 48 hrs on Cosplay.com and less than 24 hrs through Facebook (which is more regularly updated, including with progress photos). She is very enthusiastic and takes a lot of pride in her work, and it shows - for example, the progress shot of of my cosplay showed the fabric photographed too pink, so she dyed it all so it would photograph closer to the red of the character's dress. Just know that she doesn't often post progress photos throughout the whole process - just once or twice - although, I didn't ask and I only know by following her Facebook page.
Also note that she had me pay the entire cost up front, to avoid having an unfinished or unclaimed cosplay if a person doesn't end up paying the remainder of the cost, and I assume she does this for everyone. It's not necessarily a bad thing and she's an honest person but just know that you will have to save up your money ahead of time rather than paying little by little.
Anyway, when I got my cosplay in the mail, I tried it on and it fit very well and was super comfortable. The fabrics used are quite soft, including the petticoatThe sleeves are perhaps a tiny bit too poofy for me, but otherwise, I love it and had a lot of fun running around in it for a couple of days. Overall, a great experience. If she's willing to in the future, I'll be commissioning her again!
