Timeline: March 1 to Jun 10

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.
Contacted Mandy in late Feb to get a quote. Wasn't in a hurry for the costume, asked for a Jun 1st date so that there was no confusion on when I wanted the outfit. Commission included shirt, pants, shoes, belt, belt buckle, and armguards. Didn't hear from her for a while, emailed for progress pics a few times, usually didn't have much to say, sometimes took a while to get back to me. Pleased with the final outfit overall, shoes are perfect, armbands had to modify slightly because they had no buckles or elastic to allow them to be put on normally. Not a big deal. Costume was finished 6/7 and shipped 6/8, got to my house late June.

PROS: Reasonable price, sturdy fabric, fits well, can make shoes,

CONS: sometimes waited weeks to get a response for progress pics, slightly late, armbands had to be modified to fit slightly, studies in China, so shipping takes forever/is expensive

Final Grade: B-[/quote]
