Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments
: I absolutely love working with uniquecreator, so much so that I never plan to go to another commissioner unless I absolutely have to! She is extremely professional and business-like, and always eager and ready to take instructions and corrections. This is the first time my deadline was almost hit but she explained to me she had a wrench thrown into her plans and got a bit derailed, but the two of us were able to come together and work out the situation with express shipping that she even paid some of for me! The jacket fit like a glove whether I'm binded or not; the armband is soft and hand-painted and although a bit big even for my giant upper arm, it is canon that the armband is held on with a safety pin. And best of all, I only requested the jacket, medal, and armband, but she was kind enough to make me a pair of pants for it too! I was a huge hit at the photoshoot I pulled together since I was the only Ishimaru, and everyone loved the costume!
I never have a problem with her work, and I'm type of person who would prefer my commissioner send me pictures near the end instead of periodically because that takes time out of their schedule to do so when they could be working to finish. From my past experiences, I can say that uniquecreator is very true when it comes to replicating the designs which is why I don't worry about progress pictures so much. I understand for some people that is a big deal for a variety of reasons, but just be patient with her so that she can work and you'll be glad you did!
