I lack pictures of it on until I get a wig. *-* -should've done that while I was waiting for the costume to be made-

Timeline (how long your order took to process):
I paid on May 2nd in full for my Lucky Star cosplay. I received it on July 2nd, though due to a waitlist, she started in the middle of June.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.
They were very easy to keep in contact with, and the costume is amazing. It looks better than if I bought it from websites I see advertised all over the internet. They sent it through 2-3 day shipping. It's a good choice of fabric and it is simply amazing. There was a bit of a waitlist, so she started in the middle of June.

Final Grade:
A.
Thanks for the comments and the review!

One thing though I am Male~ XP

Thanks!

If you're attempting to submit a review, which is what I'm assuming, it would be great if you could follow the template provided in the first post to make it comprehensible for everyone. I can't really list it at the moment, as you have refrained from providing a name...

Here is the template for you:

Name of Merchant: Cosworx
Website: www.cosworx.com
Item purchased (please include quantity): Scruffy Wig in Purple
Links to picture(s) of your received item: http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e2...itty84/002.jpg (picture is a bit on the dark side)
Timeline (how long your order took to process): Ordered on June 28, 2008 received July 2, 2008.
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments: I decided to give Cosworx another shot. Since my other two transactions with them happened well over two years ago, I figured they can't still be in business if they were all that bad. So I ordered the Scruffy wig (purple) for my Yoruichi cosplay. Wig came super fast with no issues whatsoever. The actual wig is a lot shorter then I originally thought it would be but that's not something I can hold Cosworx accountable for. ^.^ So, I guess wig wise Cosworx isn't all that bad. As for anything else I'm still up in the air on that.

Final Grade: A+


Name of Merchant: Sock Dreams
Website: www.sockdreams.com
Item purchased (please include quantity): 1 pair of cornet cotton overknee socks (black)
Links to picture(s) of your received item: No pictures yet, will add later.
Timeline (how long your order took to process): Ordered on June 28, 2008 received July 1, 2008.
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments: Wanted some socks for Yoruichi that would be comfortable, could be used for other purposes besides cosplay, and would last long. This isn't my first time ordering from Sock Dreams and it certainly won't be my last. I highly recommend them to anyone (even guys) who need socks for every and any occasion. Especially ones that won't run on you after a few hours of walking (or running...I'm not saying why I was running ) around the convention. The socks I ordered turned out to be perfect for my Cosplay. They fit nicely and they make my legs look awesome. (And this was necessary for a skirt that short) Best part they offer free shipping anywhere in the US. (But if you think about it shipping on socks can't possibly be that expensive.)

Final Grade: A+

Name of Commissioner Dizzy Lizzy
Website/C.com gallery http://lizzy.agentsofcosplay.com/
Character commissioned and series/video game Glenda from Petite Princess Yucie Wig
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item http://lizzy.agentsofcosplay.com/gal...n/wigs/glenda/
Will have personal photos when avaliable.
Timeline (how long your order took to process) Commissioned March 11, 2008 received July 2, 2008
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments. I can't really explain how awesome Lizzy is. There have been many reviews that just glow about her and I guess I have to add to all the compliments. ^.^ She kept in contact with me through the whole process, asking for my input on color and styling. She sent progress pictures up to the very end. I can't think of a commissioner I have dealt with that was this detailed with a transaction. Even though it seems she is very busy with other commissions she never hesitated to reply to any and every question I had within the day the email was sent out. The wig itself is beautiful and very well made. I can't wait to wear this to my conventions. Thanks Lizzy!
Final Grade: A+ (You deserve higher but alas there are no letters above A ^.^)

I have to say here that I absolutely love SockDreams. I've ordered at least 3 pairs of those cotton over the knee socks and with a little sock glue from Jlist, they stay up perfectly for all of my school uniform cosplays

Egads, sorry for double post, the edit feature is messed up on my comp

I'll just post another one here for now instead of helplessly trying to edit it:

This is a Merchant Review!

Name of Merchant Merchant cosplaywig on eBay
Item commissioned: KHII Kairi's wig.

Website: http://stores.ebay.com/COSPLAY-WIG
Item purchased (please include quantity) One KHII Kairi Wig

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: Here's a link to my costume page with pictures of the wig: http://www.cosplay.com/costume/154140/

Timeline: June 18th-July 2nd. Payed in June, wig came on July 2nd.

Experience: As my first time buying a wig I'm glad to say that I'm pleased with the item I bought! It looked like the picture that was shown on the ebay site, and it is 99.99% close to her wig in my opinion. Though there was no communication, but it states on the site that she would be too busy to reply to messages anyways, and I didn't really need to contact her directly anyways. The wig came in a package with bubble wrap lining, and the wig came in a long ziplock bag with a very thin fish net cap over it. It also came with a tag explaining how to care for the wig.

Pros: The wig is unexpectedly very soft, for it being Modlon fibers. There is also two adjustable strap that you can hook on to these thin plastic latches to secure the wig on your head tighter:
http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1595477/
Pardon the lighting of the picture =P
The pricing was also very nice. $32.99+9.99 S/H= $42.98.

Cons: Well, it does look a little bit strange on the top: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1595478/, but this isn't really a problem, not unless someone's gonna look closely at the crown with the wig an inch away from their nose and complain. The bangs are also in the way, but this is no fault of cosplaywig. That's Kairi's style, so that really isn't a problem. And plus, if it does get annoying, I can just tuck it in like this: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1595433/



Final Grade: A

Name of Commissioner: Lavenderspikes

Website/C.com gallery: http://www.cosplay.com/marketplace/s...t/2103/cat/all

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

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/b...naryugu/24.jpg - Progress pic, havenít taken any of my own yet

Timeline (how long your order took to process): First contacted late May, received it yesterday

Describe your Experience:

I was super happy to find someone that could make the costume in a relatively short period of time, and for such a reasonable price. She sent me many, many update emails asking for specifics, showing sketches and progress pics. Very friendly and very TALENTED commissioner. It fit perfectly and looked amazing, I canít wait to wear it at con (and for Halloween too). Definitely would work with her again.

Final Grade: A+

Name of Merchant:
Amphigory

Website:
http://www.amphigory.com/

Item purchased (please include quantity):
-(1) Innocent wig and (1) Special Effects hair dye.

Links to picture(s) of your received item:
http://www.amphigory.com/wigs_innocent.html
http://www.amphigory.com/special_effects_hairdye.html

Timeline (how long your order took to process):
Ordered on July 2nd. Received July 7th.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.

Pros: I've dealth with them plenty of times before. Normally it takes 2 weeks for the item to arrive due to how they are set up. I know to give them a certain amount of time for delivery. This time, it took less than a week (and there was a holiday inbetween)! I was extremely happy and surprised, of course.

Comments: I love how their site is set up. They give you as much info as possible on every product they have. Very friendly and helpful in emails. When ordering, they have an area so that you can give a deadline for delivery since some items are sepcial order. If they can't make the deadline, they email you in 24 hours.

Final Grade: A+

If it were myself, I'd use the merchant review form since they are selling you an item and not making you something from scratch. I also know that you can "leave feedback" in the marketplace for the person. So, if you are posting a review here, be sure to leave feedback as well.
