Timeline: About 2 months

Describe your Experience: My first cosplay since I was 13..so I wanted it to be good. I first came to her with a request for Gwendolyn from Odin Sphere (which she is still making). After commissioning Gwendolyn I asked for her to do this simple Lill costume as well. She was very nice and her prices were great. Sometimes she doesn't respond to emails for a while..but she told me that they were experiencing typhoons were she lived (Philippines), so I understood.

She ended up getting pretty behind though. Gwendolyn was supposed to be finished at the same time as Lill..but Sumi let me know that Gwendolyn would not be done in time, but that she could ship Lill. Sumi kindly paid for the shipping cost, and I received my costume the day before the con.

Costume was much too small around bust, but I made it work temporarily. She offered to remake it free of charge though ^.^

Pros: Great job, the costume was made out of nice fabric (although a little see through) and was the exact design I wanted. She is very nice and offers low prices. Paid for shipping.

Cons: The costume was terribly small around my back and bust..I ended up having to wear a sports bra and having to pin the collar shut with a safety pin. I had a long veil which covered it up though.

Comments: Will commission again in the future =D

Final Grade: A- (Even though the costume was a little too small and the shipping was rushed, she offered to make me another ^.^ which is very kind)

Name of Merchant: Bodyweaver
Website: http://www.bodyweaver.com
Item purchased (please include quantity): One(1) white zentai suit with seamless outside and 15x15 inch square of matching fabric used on zentai suit
Links to picture(s) of your received item: none as of it
Timeline (how long your order took to process): 2 weeks?
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments. : These guys are very helpful, and they have great customer service. Everything is made to order, hense why it takes up to 4 weeks to produce. I asked BW if they can give me a 15x15 inch square of the fabric they will be using for my Zentai. I wanted to make the 'curls' on Midna's shoulder, which I will be using the zentai suit for. They said sure, and they granted my request for a very small fee. When it arrived (fast shipping!), it fit like a dream. I should have asked for no hood, but no biggie, I can easily remove it myself.

They may be more expensive than other dealers, but they go above and beyond to make sure everything is correct for your suit.

And a note! I ordered in and white, and it is a little transparent. However, that is perfectly fine, since I will be airbrushing it =)

Final Grade: A++++

Name of Commissioner: SaSu

Website: http://www.cosplay.com/marketplace/s...uct/803/cat/16

http://satsuki.sayouchi.de/news.php

Character commissioned: Konoe - Lamento ~ Beyond the Void

Links to picture(s): [See Attachments]

Timeline: About 2 months? If you don't include the DHL issues, its two months. If you include it, it's about 3. Began June, finished mid-July, received late August.

Describe your Experience:
Pros: Sasu was very professional. From the very beginning, she gave me a full break down of all the prices of materials, gave me a choice of materials and how much they would cost. She was very nice and very polite.She explained each of the different measurements to me since the site she referred me to, was in German. She emailed me just about every week or so with updates and progress shots. SaSu was even let me make 2 payments for Konoe instead of just one. I received it and everything fit perfectly. <3 I've never had a costume ever fit that perfectly! The quality is amazing! Even though DHL was having issues, she was very cooperative though I think I was being a bit impatient as well.

Cons: The only con is shipping. She lives in Germany. Shipping from where she is, is DHL dominated. It was cheap, but unfortunately, it has no tracking. The costume didn't arrive on time for Otakon, but that isn't her fault. It's DHL. [I loathe DHL. >>; We're looking into Fed-Ex, expensive, but worth it.]

Comments: Am working on a commission with SaSu right now! In spite of the terrible DHL problems, the worksmanship and cooperation though the DHL problems, including providing me a reciept of her shipping it, and her address so I could maybe find a way to track it.
Final Grade: A

Timeline (how long your order took to process):
Deadline: Otakon. Begun early June, ended August 4th

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:
I asked for the wig to have a more natural appearance, since unnatural red, like it normally is for Lavi, looks terrible with me, so I requested it to be a more natural Auburn red. And I love it. I'm just not used to wearing a short wig with a headband. XD It was an experience having short hair.


Final Grade: A

Item ordered: one Clover wig
Links to picture(s) of your item: http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c1...67b656f54f.jpg
Timeline 07-11-2008-7/26/08
Pros:The wig is top quality and looks exactly like what was pictured.
Cons: It's nothing big but the website promises wigs to be received within 1-5 business days. When I ordered the wig they said they had it in stock. After 5 days I sent them a message asking if there was a problem. The reply was that they had just gotten them in stock the day I sent them the message. So instead of 5 days I got it in 16 days. For me that's not a problem, my convention is months away. But not a good thing if your short on time.
Final Grade: A-
