Character commissioned and series/video game: I commissioned Witch Hunter Robin's pendant

These are the pictures she gave me (I hope to be taking more soon though):

Timeline (how long your order took to process): about two months, from very beginning to end

Pros: Wonderful to talk to. Very reasonably priced, and great about communication. I was very impressed with her work before and still am =D

Cons: none that I can think of

Final Grade:A+!!! I was able to talk with her, got my pendant on time, and was extremely happy with the result, even though she wasn't sure if she could do it =D I would also recommend her for props such as Keyblades x3

Fuu (Kimono, obi, bow, yukata) and Jin (hakama, kimono top, belt) from Samurai Champloo
http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=1368351
September 07 - October 07

Pros: Great Commissioner! Her prices were more than reasonable (both costumes for $100 + shipping) and she used excellent fabric. The construction is godly! She serger stitched the hems and everything was finnished perfectly. The fit was just right, I asked for some special construction (having the obi be velcro, etc) and she made everything exactly how I asked. Her communication was the best, she always kept me updated and provided progress pictures of both costumes. She even finnished and shipped the costumes one month before the time I asked for! This was my first time having something commissioned and she was very nice and helpful in the process.

Cons: Umm...I can't really think of anything. The only thing I would change would to make the flowers on Fuu's kimono a little bigger, but it really doesn't matter. Basically everything is great!

I highly recommend her to anyone especially if you are looking for a kimono.


Final grade: A+

Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.) Dion Rinoa Full Costume

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: Will be posted this weeked

Timeline: 2 weeks

Comments: Although this started off as me just buying the incomplete outfit that she was selling, it turned out to be a wonderful commission. Infact, so wonderful, there is talk of another commission right now. I recomend her first to anyone.

Pros: O_O I have never seens such amazing work. *faints* This outfit is beyond god level. In short you can find nothing wrong with this outfit. Nothing, Nodda, ZIP! For once I have finally recieved an outfit! Not only was the outfit amazing, but she was awsome to talk too *^^ She's so sweet*, and was always in touch. What I like besides the fact that she kept in touch, was also that she asked questions! That really reasured me because I knew she cared about what my thoughts on it were, and that she wanted to get it right.

Cons: There could never be any



Final Grade: A+

Kanira I think you need to put in big bold letters at the top of this thread that people are not ask and or quote commissions on this thread because it is not the purpose for it, it seems to be getting side tracked. I like reading all the reviews but they seem to be getting lost in a see of ask and tell.

It's pretty tempting, I admit, Yunalicia :> I really don't want to discourage conversation, since it can be quite useful for answering questions others might have intended to ask in the future, but this entire "lawlz i make gud cosplayz hire meeee" and "i dont wanna reserch so sum1 do this fer me k" thing is certainly unneccessary...will make a note of it Thanks for the recommendation!
