Timeline (how long your order took to process)
Less than a week, including shipping

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:

Super-fast communication
Quick turnaround on project
High quality product

Um... hmm ... eh... nope... can't think of any

I decided to buy a new pair of ears for my Inuyasha wig about a week before my con, since I was dissatisfied with my old ones (see above pic). The seller was very willing to rush my project, despite having other work of her own to do. Her communication was excellent and my emails were replied to within a very short period of time. The item quality was first-rate, and definitely not cheap quality in any way. Overall I have nothing but positive things to say about this seller. I would gladly buy another Cosplay item from her without hesitation.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.: The communication was fast and they were very helpful. They send it to me the day after I paid, and I got to track my order. I live in the Netherlands but it only took 4 days for it to arrive! The costume was very nice even though the skirt is a bit long. That's my only complaint really!

First, Kanira! : D You missed a review. No worries! Thanks!
I tried editing my last post, but for some reason it times out. >>

Name of Merchant: Cosworx


Item purchased (please include quantity): Wisp in 613. Ended up being out of stock. 24B was ordered instead.

Links to picture(s) of your received item:

Timeline (how long your order took to process):
August 3rd- August 9th.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.:
I ordered the wig in 613. I received an email stating they were out of stock, so I replaced it with a substitute color. 24B is a little more yellow than in the swatch on-line, but this could be just my computer settings. Anhow, they kept in contact and immediately sent my order after the decision.

Final Grade: A

Name of Commissioner: The Hag

Website/C.com gallery: http://www.cosplay.com/member/72984

Character commissioned and series/video game: Machine embroidered Hellsing patches.

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: (Will post picture soon, but trust me, they're NICE.)

Timeline:I believe I first e-mailed her in March-April, and I received my patches well before my deadline of the first weekend of July.

Describe your Experience: Very awesome to work with. She updated me any time there was progress, was very professional and polite the entire time. No cons to speak of, but if you want custom embroidered patches, they don't get any more professional looking than hers.

Final Grade:A++

First: Poot! My bad; thanks for the catch, DizzyLizzy ^^
Second: Envel, you didn't mention how many patches were involved, although it is insinuated that more than one are included; if you could specify it would be super-neat.
And updated!

Timeline (how long your order took to process): A week?
Describe your Experience:
Scott is a friend of mine, and he always AIMs me all his progress on the commissions he does. So, I decided to commission Link's Wind Waker from him. It was about.. 2 weeks before the con when I commissioned it. He showed me step by step progress of the WW, either with photos or a description, and even lets me put my input so he can change it to my liking. He even hand-delivered it to me at the on, and I didn't not need to wait for him. Overall, Scott is a very trusty worthy commissioner, and I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a prop!

(Sorry its so big. ^^; )
Timeline (how long your order took to process): 2-3 weeks at most.
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments: This is my first year to REALLY get into cosplaying and I'm a tad nervous that I'll get scammed. (Specially after reading this thread.) So I was a little iffy about ordering from this seller. (As I've also read stories about Hong Kong sellers.)
Thankfully my fears were NOT realized. The wig is GREAT. It came in wonderful condition and its so soft and silky to the touch.
I would defiantly order from them again if I could.
Final Grade: A+

Name of Commissioner: Ajie Nugroho
Website/C.com gallery: cosplay1.com
Character commissioned and series/video game: Yuki Cross from Vampire Knight (Lolita dress from artbook)
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: here and here
Timeline: Requested quote 4/18/08 told it would take 2 months from time of payment, paid 6/5/08, recieved pictures of completed costume 8/4/08, recieved costume 8/16/08
Describe your Experience: I had been wanting to get into Lolita fashion for sometime now, and I had absolutely fallen in love with this dress. I knew with my current costume load and the detail involved in the costume, I really couldn't make it myself. Since this was my first time getting a costume commissioned, I approached it with extreme causion, sending out several ad responces and reading the reviews posted in this thread. Ajie of cosplay1 was one of the first to respond to my requests for quotes. I was told the dress could be done in time for AWA as well. The price quoted seemed fair but not to cheap, and with all the possitive reviews, I chose Cosplay1 to commission the dress for me.
Pros: Communication was excellent and I always recieved prompt responces. The price was fair, not too cheap, but not super expensive either. The dress came out exactly like I wanted, as a 3 piece set and not one solid dress. All the accessories I requested arrived with the dress and the gloves and petticoat were also included, two items I didn't directly request but still wanted. Not only did they honor all of my requests, they went above and beyond with my costume.
Cons: None
Comments: Highly recommended!

left side: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1639034/

Timeline: I approached him with the request in November and received it in July.

Describe your Experience.
Pros: Well...look at it. It is absolutely stunning! It's the perfect color, perfect style, easy to wear, and for some reason it doesn't make me look like a man, like short hair normally does. It's easy to care for and store, the timing was perfect, communication was perfect...it was just the perfect transaction. He even padded and taped the box to keep it as pristine as possible in travel, and it was utterly unharmed despite shipping during weather that is all too often death for innocent wigs in transit.
Cons: Nada.
Comments: This wig was originally planned to debut at AX '08, and I got a frantic PM in early June where he confessed he was not quite ready with it, but had already pulled one all-nighter to work on it and was utterly willing to do what he needed to do to get it to me on time, provided I gave him an exact date for shipping. Unfortunately my AX plans fell through and I quite contently waited another few weeks for its arrival, but I am still utterly convinced that if I'd needed it that same week, he would have come through. It was like there was nothing he wouldn't do to keep a deadline. That entire situation was my own doing for not keeping the commissioner up-to-date on my situation as is the responsibility of the customer, and for it I apologize.

Final Grade: A+, and a strong recommendation for anyone in need of a very specific or otherwise difficult to manage color for their wig.

*This is a Merchant Review

Name of Merchant: Sakura Wigs
Website: www.sakurawigs.com
Item purchased: 1 120cm Base wig in NO1
Links to picture(s): http://s343.photobucket.com/albums/o.../Wig%20Photos/
Timeline (how long your order took to process): Ordered Nov 27 2007. Recieved mid July of this year.
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:The price seemed reasonable for the wig, and at first we were given a arrival date of the end of January. That came and passed, then after many emails we finally got a response that the wig we ordered was lost in transit. So they sent a replacement one that they said they had "in stock." To my knowledge the company is in Canada - the 2nd wig arrived from China. It was poorly packaged, the wig was frizzy and completely kinked. The worst came when I tried it on and the top of the wig did not have enough hair to cover a bald spot. No matter which way you part it, it does not cover it. Also there is a loose weft(it's easily fixable, however unprofessional.) So after waiting over 200 days for a wig that should have taken 6 weeks to arrive, I was dissapointed and upset. I had less than a week to get a new wig from a different company. They do not get an F, since after all whenever they did get around to answering emails, they were pleasant.
Final Grade: D
Bow-ties are Cool.
