Updated, but yes, ly*chee is correct. We have no reason to need reference pictures without the finished product

Note: For some reason, I can't edit my previous post at all, so I'll repost the information, as I did the last one in a rush.

Name of Commissioner: CosplayOne

Website/C.com gallery: http://cosplay1.com/

Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.): We commissioned three Akatsuki cloaks for three different characters: Hidan, Sasori, and Deidara.

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item:
Picture of item wanted - http://i143.photobucket.com/albums/r...ra008_mimg.jpg
Picture of result - http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w...dan_sasori.png

Timeline (how long your order took to process): Well, I commissioned them somewhere around January 27th, 2008, and they quckly got back to me. The delay, if any, was my own fault, as we had trouble gathering measurements and pictures, and these people were incredibly quick. I completed our measurements and pictures... somewhere around February 7th or so, and I recieved my three cloaks not even a month later! Somewhere around March 3rd or something was when I got them.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments: I liked the costume in full. No flaws what so ever. The cloaks are very comfortable and fit perfectly, and if there were any errors, it was due to our own measurement mistakes, like mine is a little tight around the back since I measured wrong. I was a little confused about payments, since we were first going to order 4 cloaks and it was $260, then we kicked one of the cloaks out and it was still $260, but that's okay. The biggest problem was that the collar was too tight to be for the Akatsuki, so we always had to keep it unzipped.

Final Grade: A!

Name of Commissioner: NekoMimiChan

Website/C.com gallery: http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/m75220/

Character commissioned and series/video game: A prop, Nayru's Harp from the Zelda series.

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item:

Reference image: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v7...refs/nayru.jpg

Timeline: ~1.5 weeks from initial consultation to item shipped and recieved.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments: NekoMimiChan is an excellent prop maker and wonderful to work with! She was very patient with my hesitancy and need for time in deciding whether or not to commission from her, and updated me with her progress nearly every day it took her to make it! I specifically commissioned a unpainted prop base, which definitely cut down on the the labor required, but she still worked incredibly fast! By the time I thought of asking her how progress was going, she already had it finished and shipped. If you're looking for sturdy props, would definitely reccommend NekoMimiChan if you want a quick and stress-free commissioning experience!

Final Grade: A+

Character commissioned and series/video game: Utena Tenjou from Revolutionary Girl Utena.

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1468284/

Timeline: For me, it took only about a few weeks to a month around late January early February, she was very quick to reply to me saying she made costumes based on a customer's budget. Plus, since she was going to get the costume done the night at the con I was attending (Sakura Con) I was invited to come see the progress.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:
She was quick to start work on my costume, she even called me the day she was gone fabric shopping, telling me every detail and color she was getting to make it look close to the manga version of Utena. I was very pleased and later I sent her my measurements, needless to say she was very good at being spot on with sewing them correctly. I had no problem with fitting the costume when I was asked to visit her hotel room and trying the costume on. The only problem I had was with the epaulets were not pinned very well and I lost one unfortunatly during the convention I was at. But she promised to make it up by making a new one and sending it to me no extra charge to me. ^ _ ^ She also sold me a pink wig she had hanging around, all in all for a $100 costume, she let me have it for $90 and I would reccomend her to anyone needing a good yet accurate costume.

Character commissioned and series/video game: Frederic Chopin from Eternal Sonata (Costume)

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item:

Timeline: Quote requested on January 27th, 2008, recieved April 15th, 2008.

I've wanted to cosplay from Eternal Sonata even before the game came out, and I'm glad I did. The costume was beyond my talent sewing-wise so I decided to get a commission.
Quick responses, beautiful costumes.
The detail is absolutely amazing. Beautiful embroidery all around the costume. Well-constructed hat, very proffessional! The best costume I own. The fabric is of high quality, small metallic trinkets were included to emphasize how classy the costume is. For the most part, the measurements are PERFECT. The only iff I have about it is the circumference around my arms is a bit tight, but it must've been hard to make a costume for a plus-sizer like myself, so I don't really blame em'.

Final Grade: A

Character commissioned and series/video game: Princess Garnet from Final Fantasy 9. Just the dress and arm sleeves
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: http://cosplay1.com/dtProduct.php?pId=124
Timeline: First contacted her November 17th, got it April 4th.
Describe your Experience: Very happy. She always responded to emails quick and friendly. The only thing I would suggest for the future is she didn't send any progress pictures, although I never asked, so my bad. Also, the top part of the sleeve is a little tight but nothing I can't fix.
Overall, I was blown away with the amount of work that was put into this costume. I would recomd her to anyone who asks! She did an excellent job!
