Name of Commissioner: Cosplaymagic
Website/C.com gallery:Cosplay Magic.com
Character commissioned and series/video game: (full costume) Naruto Uzumaki-Naruto Shippuuden
Pros: Good communication and fast shipping. The costume is very nice, I have ordered from them before and the costume quality has always been good.
Cons: I ordered a large and it ended up being too big. The last costume I ordered from them was Edward Elric, I ordered it in medium and everything fit but the pants which were too tight. This time around I decided to pick a large sense I ordered a Sora costume from mooncostumes, and their sizing chart for men is pretty much the same. The Sora costume is slightly big, but not noticibly so. The Naruto costume just feels huge on me. The pants are fine but need to be hemmed cause they are too long. The jacket...well the sleeves are long and kind of baggy..and then the jacket is baggy around the waist area too and it's kind of long. The length doesn't bother me so much as the baggyness.
Overall:I do believe the costume can be fixed. The pants shoudn't be hard, and I think there is a lady in my town who does alterations. She took in my sister's wedding dress, perhaps she can take in the jacket and make it fit better. All in all, nice costume...and although it is big..I'd rather it be too big than too small. At least you actually have a chance of fixing it that way.
Grade: B-

As is mentioned on page one, post one, this thread is for reviews only, try this thread for questions on specific commissioners.

Name of Commissioner: DizzyLizzy
Website/C.com gallery: http://lizzy.agentsofcosplay.com/
Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.) Felicia Wig for Felicia from DarkStalkers
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: http://lizzy.agentsofcosplay.com/gal.../wigs/felicia/ (will have pictures of me wearing it with the costume after the convention ^_^)
Timeline (how long your order took to process): About 2-3 months
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons. Wow! I can't even begin to list all the awesome things about Lizzy ^_^! Very pleasant, extremely friendly and helpful and kept me up-to-date about the wig and was patient whenever I had questions about things or if I wanted quotes on other possible commissions. She sent me links to the gallery to check up on progress regularly and was excellent with communication. The wig looks PHENOMENAL *^_^*!! I opened the box and literally bounced about, it came very quickly and was packaged well and had instructions on wig care and homemade bath salts (I got pear, I used it already )
Comments: I've made a new friend and I am already in talks with getting a full cosplay from her for the next convention (a cat girl Nuku Nuku cosplay) and potentially others because I've had such a wonderful experience. I highly reccomend Lizzy to anyone looking for a top-knotch cosplay!
Final Grade: A+++++

Name of Commissioner: Human Go
Website/C.com gallery: http://stores.ebay.com/human-go-cosplay-costume-store
Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.) : Lenalee Lee 3rd uniform from D.Gray-Man (Full costume)

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: Soon to come XD

Timeline (how long your order took to process): About 2 and a half months

Pros : It's very comfortable for a skirt XD
The colors of the outfit also matched well (even though not very accurate)...Another really good thing was the badge on the costume. They (very accurately) put the newer badge on the costume. I was so happy! I never expected them to do that because I didn't even notice that the badges changed! I was reeeaally impressed! I totally loved that. The costume came before Christmas, which was when I wanted it. They answered too most of the emails in a day, some in a few hours XD

Cons : The skirt was kind of bigger than asked for. It was all covered with a safety pin though. The matearial wasn't that good...The colors aren't what the character origianlly wears, but that showed on the pictures...so my fault for not seeing that the colors will be different.

Comments : This was a costume that was a present for a friend XD

Final Grade: B
The costume was overall great, but thought it could use some more improvement.

Name of Merchant: Wig Fashion

Website: http://stores.ebay.com/Wig-Fashion

Item purchased: One waist-length pink wig and one short gray wig.

Links to picture(s) of your received item:
http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1871674/
http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1871349/
Don't have a photo of the gray wig, since I ordered it for a friend =]

Timeline: I paid in full using paypal upon checkout, so it only took about a week from buying to receiving. Very fast for a seller from China =] One thing to note is that since I bought two wigs together, I was eligible for their 20% rebate. I expected a somewhat slow response, but they got me the rebate the same day I emailed them! Very fast and reliable.

Describe your Experience. The long wig is very pretty and soft. =] Came in a nice package, and the free wig cap they give you is actually quite good. The gray wig had black fibres in it, which was not mentioned in the item description, but since I'm dyeing the wig a darker gray-blue, it really doesn't matter.

Final Grade: A+

Name of Commissioner: Cosaru
Website: http://www.cosaru.com
Character commissioned and series/video game : Gothic & Lolita No.11 BLACK & RED Furisode Kimono Maid Dress Set
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k2...ed/Photo24.jpg
Timeline: about three weeks. I had my order set in to be done 2 weeks after I paid, to which I received it less than a week after my order had started.
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments: This commissioner is the best I ever had and I think I ever WILL have. Normally when I open my package, I think, “Oh it looks okay”. But I didn’t even get to look at the clothes fully before I thought, “Wow this is AMAZING.” Cosaru put all items in a neatly packaged clear plastic bag, and I could see everything she put in. The clothes, even when looking at a bit of them since they were mostly covered with adorable free gifts she put in, were breathtakingly beautiful. I opened the bag and Cosaru had thrown in a free gift of kitty ears, lots of candy, and this beautiful set of earrings. I had a bit of difficulty putting on everything, but once you figure it out, it’s quite easy. The only complaint I have is that the obi was too big for me, and I stressed out about it a bit, but I easily fixed that by attaching a hook and eye to it. The dress is great without a pannier, and I didn’t order one with it, but I decided to try it with my old pannier and it poofs just enough quite beautifully. This is also the last one of its kind since after mine was made, this design and a few others were discontinued. But it’s so beautiful and I just love and adore it to pieces. I 100% recommend Cosaru. She is a superb and top-notch commissioner.
Final Grade: A+

Item purchased (please include quantity): Kagura Sohma dress & Uryuu Ishida Quincy outfit
Links to picture(s) of your received item:
Kagura - http://s387.photobucket.com/albums/o...ra_cospray.jpg
Ishida - (my brother's the one on the right, but i'm pretty sure that the other Ishida also ordered from mooncostumes, their outfits were so similar!) http://s387.photobucket.com/albums/o...t=100_0530.jpg
Timeline (how long your order took to process): about 5-9 days for each
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:
The prices for this site are reasonable and the costumes came out all right as soon as we ordered them, plus they didn't take really long either, so overall i was pretty pleased with them. the quality of the costumes was good too, i just didn't really like how my Kagura Cat bag looked, but its just a minor detail, didn't really affect anything.
Final Grade: A-

Name of Commissioner:Catnip23

C.com gallery:Click here.

Character commissioned and series/video game:Haku from Naruto mask.

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item:Click here.

Timeline (how long your order took to process):Under two weeks. Super quick!

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.
Catnip23 is such a lovely, nice girl. I have NOTHING bad to say about her or her work. I had seen her selling Haku masks in the past, and I asked her if she would make one for me. The price for the mask was very reasonable, and she even bumped up my shipping so I could receive the item quicker, because I needed it at the end of the month. She allowed me to choose whether or not I wanted the mask to have ties and even what color they would be. She also sent me a progress picture, but she was done with it so quickly, she only needed to send one! Later, when I asked her for help on making my own mask, she was quick to help and respond. The mask is very well made. It's just... AWESOME all-around! It fits my face perfectly, and it the painting on it is so well done. The photo does not do it justice.

I hope to do business with her again!

Final Grade: A+!
