Akari Mizunashi and Aika S. Granzchesta, Aria: Full Costumes
Full Body, both
Front Detail
Back Detail
Hat Detail
Hat Lining
More Front Detail
Aika Packed
Payment sent January 29th, Costume received March 28th
Pros: This is by far the most professionally done costume I have ever owned. My terrible pictures do it NO justice, and they will be updated as soon as possible. Everything from the quality of the fabrics to the assembly has been done with an expert touch; the amazing quality of everything in person is breathtaking. I never had reason to be concerned when working with this commissioner. She is fast, efficient, always in communication, always answering questions immediately and always professional. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone who has ever or will ever want to commission a costume; she should unquestionably be the first choice on anyone's list of sellers, and certainly is on mine.
Cons: Nothing, whatsoever. A first for me
Comments: I cannot stress enough how amazing this transaction was. The costume is accurate to the greatest degree physically possible, no shortcuts were taken and there is nothing but the highest quality-everything at work here. She is the first commissioner who has said they will provide progress pictures, and then actually follows through. Her hometown was flooded after I placed my order, and I was still kept up to date and received these TWO amazing costumes within only two months. Simply amazing. With absolutely perfect fit!
Final Grade: A+ to the highest degree <3

Name of Commissioner: Cocosilverhk
Website/C.com gallery: http://stores.ebay.com/cocosilverhk
Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.) Bleach Captain Haori (Division 6) + Hakama and Kimono (Black normal shinigami ones)
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=877129 (It's the one Byakuya has on, can't really see it but I don't have any back pics of it I'll try get one when I get home) http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=270084037679 (Listing photo, looks exactly like that)
Timeline (how long your order took to process) 2 weeks to get to me
Describe your Experience:
Pros: Very nice print on the haori, the black designs and number at the back were printed on/painted on not bits of cloth sewn on and the number written looked clear, neat and professional. Hakama and haori fit well, good quality fabric nice and thick. Hakama was made like a real hakama with a back panel that alot of cheap ones seem to miss. Very impressed with it overall. Decent price. Powerseller from what looks like those chinese mass manufacturing factories with only 1 neg feed and it shows- they seem to use their own pictures (or produce identical items anyway).

Cons: The hem of the shoulder-sleeve bit of haori was just folded and ironed into shape not sewn so it had tendency to unravel silghtly but it was ok when worn. Also white bit peeking out of neck line was missing, though the bits at the sleeves were there. Nothing major.

Final Grade:A- (If the 2 cons were fixed they would be very good)

Name of Commissioner: lunaladyoflight

Website/C.com gallery: http://msmagistifo.freehomepage.com/

Character commissioned: Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon Wig

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item:

http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=1021196
http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=1021197

Timeline (how long your order took to process): Not sure the exact date,
but it was between January and February and she was done it by March.

Pros: She would keep in contact with me almost every day by PM letting
me know of her progress and what was done or tips to remember with
handling and taking care of a wig. Also, she sent me pictures upon my
request and also sent me the wig head to attach the wig to and keep.

Cons: (None that I can think of)

Comments:She really pu's 100+ effort and heart into making any type
of form of wig and her skills and talents really blossom with what
she does. I would highly reccomend her for anyone needing to have
a Sailor Moon wig made, she is a negotiable, friendly, and round sweet person.

Final Grade: A+

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item http://images.cosplay.com/gallery.ph...9&member=14292
Timeline (how long your order took to process) it was pretty quick, I can't remember exactly I just remember it being quicker then what she told me

Name of Commissioner Yume no Tenshi
Website/C.com gallery http://www.yumenotenshi.net/
Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.) Chidori's winter school uniform
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item I never wore it to a convention so I don't have any with it on. http://www.yumenotenshi.net/chidoricos.html these are the ones she showed me
Timeline (how long your order took to process)It took a couple of months

Describe your Experience.
Pros: I got progress photos and ended up only paying for the fabric. She was very understanding and was never rude.
Cons: The communication was great at times and pretty poor at times. I got progress photos that looked great and even in the pictures the outfit looks amazing but when put on a human it just fit all wrong. With the measurements I gave the skirt ended up being so small but then the Jacket was huge. She offered to fix it but after a month she sent it back with a check saying she couldn't do it without remaking it. The skirt was made out of a fabric that doesn't pleat at all so she had to top stitch the pleats. She used snaps instead of buttons for a uniform skirt as well so that seemed very cheap, I figured with that kind of skirt it would have buttons. The Jacket looked great but was made for a much larger person because the armholes and the jacket was so baggy that even with an undershirt it was huge. I didn't understand how from the same measurements the skirt was so tight and too small and the jacket was so huge around the waist and well everywhere. It fit really bad.

Comments: Although she was nice I thought she had more skills at making uniforms then what I received. It looked great in the photos but not so great in person. I never got to use the costume as well.
Final Grade: D

Wow. Just... wow....

Name of Commissioner - nugrosjp

Website/C.com gallery - this commissioner has got tons of reference shots at http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=74302
http://images.cosplay.com/gallery.php?member=41497
No website that I know of.

Character commissioned and series/video game - I'm not honestly sure. This commissioner's CP.com gallery lists it as Ramune costume, no clue other than that. It looked nifty, was cheap, and figured I'd use it as a cheap way to test her skills.

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item -
This pictures don't even pretend to do this justice.

Timeline - Payment sent Feb 19th, Arrived Mar 27th, far earlier than anticipated. This commissioner was QUICK.

Describe your Experience.
Pros - IMHO, cheap. Though I refer to the cost only. The quality was astounding. This commissioner's communication skills were amazing. Shots sent before it was shipped. Methods and skills used that were so good I didn't even know they existed.
Cons - Only one, but it didn't turn out to be a con. Usually I prefer to do business with folks in the USA. This person is not. Part of the reason I started small (though still a full outfit).
Comments -

This may seem like excessive praise, but this commissioner deserves it. The other review of this commissioner here seems to agree.

A minimal of measurements were asked for. It worried me at first, but I've never owned anything which fit better in my life. Fabric was very high quality. Not a loose thread to be found. Normally I'd be against giving someone an A+ for their work, as it seems like an un-detailed review, but there was nothing wrong with this transaction or this costume, and I'm a freak for details and perfection.

I've already started gathering reference shots for two very detailed costumes and my business will be going here if they are not swamped, and they deserve to be. There is another review of this commissioner on here which I quote as "This is by far the most professionally done costume I have ever owned.". I couldn't agree more.

I'll stop going on now, seriously though. Amazing. My jaw hit the floor.

Final Grade: A+

I recieved BEAUTIFUL materials and fabrics, she followed every detail I asked for, and it's very comfortable. She even added a few nice features such as clips to make the costume waay better than I initially expected, and it was a rush commission.

Final Grade: A+, If there was antyhing higher, I'd give it.
