Timeline (how long your order took to process): Contact date of January 4, 2008 to pickup at post office date of May 15, 2008 (Original due date of May 24, 2008 - ahead of schedule!)

Describe your Experience: Extremely friendly, easy to reach if I had any questions, and very professional. Kept me up to date on the progress and sent photos along the way. The finished product was packaged well to avoid damaging the ponytail and arrived well ahead of schedule. I'm absolutely amazed by how it turned out. DEFINITELY someone I'd commission from again!

Final Grade: A+

Name of Merchant Amphigory
Website www.amphigory.com
Item purchased (please include quantity) 1 Ena in #266T, 1 Enchantment in #1

Pre-styling Ena
Pre-styling Ena and Enchantment
Timeline (how long your order took to process) Not sure on -exact- dates, but it was 1-2 weeks.
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments. I was really happy with the wigs I got. The Ena had much more white on top, blonde on bottom than an even blend, so if you're planning to style it in a updo, that might be a problem. The Enchantment was pretty good, and after a shampoo + conditioning, it didn't tangle too badly at all. The Enchantment did have these weird, five-inch-ish hairs that stuck out around the top (I don't have a photo of them, as it went to the friend who's conditioning it in the photo) in amidst the longer hairs. These stayed down once I hit them with a dryer sheet and are hardly visible. The Ena took well to styling, and when I washed it out with wig shampoo and then conditioned it, two cans of hairspray washed out fine and it's soft and shiny.
Final Grade: A

Name of Merchant - ProfessionalOnly

Website - http://myworld.ebay.com/professionalonly

Item Purchased (Please Include Quantity) – 1. PW252 Aqua Blue Wig

Links to picture(s) of your received item -
It's a wig I will be styling, but it looks EXACTLY like the photo on their site.

Timeline (How Long Your Order Took To Process) – I paid on May 3rd. It arrived May 15th.

Describe your Experience -

Pros – It's exactly as described and pictured. Soft fibers.

Cons – Nothing.

Final Comments – As mentioned, I've dealt with them prior. Although not with this particular wig, another was slightly on the thin side, but nothing major. This one was just fine. They also do custom orders. I've never used that option, but if others are looking for someone who does do them, they are available.

Final Grade - A+

Name of Commissioner: Cosaru

Website/C.com gallery: http://www.cosaru.com

Character commissioned and series: Gothic Lolita dress (Gothic & Lolita No.13R Valentine RED - custom color: black)

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: N/A, but I'll update it in the near future.

Timeline (how long your order took to process): I can't remember the exact time, but Ordered back in late December, received in January.

Pros: Great communication, received the item earlier than the original due date, which was in February, and everything came out exactly as pictured on the site.

Cons: The top takes like forever to put on, as it takes two people to get it on properly. It's not her fault though as I knew that the back had ribbon lace-ups, though I didn't expect it to actually have trouble putting it on. ^^; Only other little thing was that between the time I placed the commission and when I received it, I loss some weight, which I didn't expect to lose, so when I got the outfit, it ended up being a little looser then it would have been if I didn't lose the weight. Luckily, I didn't lose so much weight that the outfit wouldn't fit; just had to tighten the top a bit more.

Comments: This was the first time that I got a commission and I was hoping that I wouldn't have a bad experience as I've read plenty of stories about people who'd gotten screwed over in some way in their commission. Luckily, I didn't have that problem. :P Overall, I had a great experience and I'd be more than happy to get another commission through her.

Final Grade: A

From the first post:

This is not a Private Eye service, so if you have a question pertaining to an unlisted seller, please pay a visit to the Commissioners NOT to go to thread.

OsukaXArino. Honestly, learn to read the front page before posting. Not trying to be a jerk or anything, but it cuts down the clutter here.

This thread is actually for people to post a review on their experiences with a commissioner.

You may want to try posting this in the Commissioners NOT to go to thread. Yeah, the title does throw you off, but that is the place to ask about a specific commissioner.

Name of Commissioner: Dream-Angels

Website/C.com gallery: http://ww.dream-angels.net

Character commissioned and series: Rinoa - Final Fantasy VIII deluxe version, duster and arm warmers only

Links to pictures: http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/111832/

Timeline: I don't remember exactly but it was really fast, I think about 4 weeks, in time for my animecon

Pros: Very nice fabric, the painted wings on the back are also great. The color is perfect. The communication was also great, I always had a quick answer. And I wanted the duster longer than usual, so that it would come down to my ankles, and they did, for no extra charge!

Cons: the armwarmers were a bit wide but one seam and I made them a little smaller to fit my arms and made the closing on the duster a bit smaller too. The bottom of the duster may have been a little wider for my taste, with more fabric.

Comments: I was really satisfied with the outcome, I just bought the duster because I couldn't get a hold of the right fabric myself since I usually do commissions myself so I made the rest of the costume. I would have made the bottom of the duster wider though.
Overall a really nice costume, and I'm REALLY happy with it! Highly recommended.

Final Grade: A+
