Name of Commissioner: Kuroi_shi
Website/C.com gallery: You can find her ad on the marketplace?
Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.): Chrome Dokuro's outfit from Hitman Reborn!
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: (My crappy webcam does it no justice.)
Sorry, I was making a really weird face. But the costume on me.
The skirt! (I wrinkled it, sorry.)
The top!
Timeline (how long your order took to process): A month.
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.: It was great! It's my first time buying a costume, so I was a bit paranoid; meaning, I was being incredibly annoying with my PM's. But she responded to all of them, and went outside the box to add things that would make my costume look better or more practical. I'd recommend her to anyone; she's great at what she does.
Final Grade: A!

I commissioned a Lulu costume from Limebarb.com. Check out my review on Lunch.com:

Also, I'd recommend everyone else also post their reviews on Lunch.com. We've already got 2 cosplay commissioners and it's a lot more organized than this thread:

http://www.lunch.com/tags/Cosplay-1006629-1-1.html

It would be much easier for people to search and see a commissioners ratings!

Not to be a killjoy, but I think one of the reasons people post reviews here is because of the popularity and reliability of this site. This site has been up consistently and with good moderation and increased viewer/usership for many years.

By contrast, I've seen other cosplay review sites come and go over the years. I mean, I'm all for making this info widely available, don't get me wrong, it just seems like trying to re-invent the wheel to me when so much of the cosplay community is already registered and active here.

By no means am I saying leave Cosplay.com and the beauty of Lunch.com is that it's not about cosplay only and it's certainly not run by a random cosplayer. It's a real company so saying that Lunch.com will "go" is like saying Amazon will. No, it's not that big YET but I think it will be!

Anyway, as a person who does use cosplay commissioners, trying to find all the reviews on a particular commissioner by searching this thread is a pain in the you know what. Even after I find all the reviews, there's no easy way to skim their ratings overall. That's why I suggested Lunch.com.

You know they are all categorized linked on the first few posts of this thread, right?

Yeaaaah, I'd recommend sending him a direct message or e-mail rather than responding in the thread.

I've had terrible luck figuring out whether or not he ever checks them, but it couldn't hurt.

Purchased a bunch of wigs awhile ago, but I thought I should post some reviews now!

Name of Merchant:
zhenna0036
Website: http://shop.ebay.com/merchant/zhenna...Q_fromZQQ_mdoZ
Item purchased (please include quantity): White Handmade Thick Bangs Cosplay Braided wig (pigtailed)
Links to picture(s) of your received item: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1870437/, more attached to this post
Timeline (how long your order took to process): 2 weeks from payment to arrival
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:
Pros: Unlike most of zhenna0036's products, this wig was very thick. The fiber is thicker than their other wigs' and there's more of it. It dyes well and I had no problem making the buns thick enough for the commission. The wig mesh is made differently, but it expands for larger heads a bit better.

There's not a lot of pre-parted wigs out there, which can be very inconvenient, but fortunately this is a pretty good one.

Cons:
There are strange "weft holes" where the wig goes in front of the ears and around the temple area. There are simply wefts not sewn in there. This isn't a problem if you need the pigtails to be low, but if they are somewhat higher than the seller's picture, I would highly consider getting extensions to sew in.

Final Grade: A (more towards A+, but those holes are just weird)

Name of Merchant: ProfessionalOnly
Website: The link is banned on cosplay.com, but simply google "professionalonly"
Item purchased (please include quantity): Long Purple Aya and Maya Cosplay Wig (2 purchased)
Links to picture(s) of your received item: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1903570/, another attached to this post
Timeline (how long your order took to process): 2 weeks from payment to arrival
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:
Pros:
Very smooth beautiful kanekalon fiber. I purchased two to combine into one wig, with one being the main ponytailed wig and the other being the "tail" of the wig. The "tail" wig was also to provide additional wefts. I was surprised that the wigs were somewhat thick as the main wig did not require any wefts along the bottom, though a few were needed on the areas where the wig separates from the bangs to the pulled-back part.


Cons: The seller's photo shows the wig as having a slightly reddish tone to it, when the wig color doesn't have it at all. For some reason, when I received the wigs, they smelled really bad x_X. I'm not sure what it was, but they strongly smelled like manufacturing chemicals of some sort. I washed the wigs once or twice and that took care of it.

Final Grade: A
