Pros: She was always quick to reply, her work is beautiful, and she's a delight to work with. Her price was reasonable for the high quality of her work. The wig was sent well before the deadline and was packed very well, so it arrived in immaculate condition. Couldn't ask for more in a commissioner.

Name of Merchant: Kucos (E-BAY)

Website: http://myworld.ebay.com/kucos.hk

Item purchased: Death the kid wig, Maka wig, & Sora wig

Timeline: Order placed Sept 26th, Received Oct.31,2009

Links to picture(s) of your received item:
will update later c:

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:
Kucos is really excellent with communication. She replies to all my questions quickly and efficiently. She was even kind enough to give me an extra extra discount for helping her ^^
The only thing I can really complain about Kucos is that they take FOREVER to style/make the wigs, none of the wigs were premade, so she took 1 week for each wig to be finished, so unfortunately though I ordered a month in advance I had to upgrade my shipping to express /: and to be honest she charges way too much for the wigs, though the high quality is LOVELY, it's honestly the same quality I buy from other e-bay sellers who sell much lesser.
I was disappointed to see all my wigs squished x_x, so the style got ruined.. (which rly isn't her fault) but as for the styling goes, it's 100% similar as the photos on the Kucos shop. I'm pleased with the wigs, though the maka wig was a little messy (we were able to restyle it), I just believe from the price I paid I expected a little more. (like for the style to remain in tact during shipping^^;; )

Final Grade: A-

Timeline (how long your order took to process): About 3 weeks.
Pros: Excellent communication, great price, very accurate! All around great seller and a very nice girl!
Cons: The only con I can really think of would be the construction of the gloves but she let me know prior to shippment that she herself wasn't stoked on the way they turned out. I respected her honesty and they aren't that bad

Asch the Bloody from Tales of the Abyss(just the wig)

Fianl Progress Shot
http://i33.tinypic.com/icmuc1.jpg

I want to say it took roughly 1 month, but I told her she didn't have to be in a rush.

My experience for my first time commission on cosplay.com was really great. Going to a real cosplayer commissioner is much better than a company.

Pros: She got the wig exactly way I wanted it too look. She covered all the cost if she messed up on any part of the wig(I don't mean the whole wig). She performed this commission in a timely manner. She did keep me up to date on everything she was doing. Also progress shots were provided when wanted or if there were any severe changes made to the wig it self. She provided me with personal info on how to take care of my wig. I keep saying she, but she really did make sure it was to my liking.

Cons: Needs to put some new batteries in her camera. Price was a little more than I expected, but I am also not an expert on wigs.

Grade......I say A-

I know this is a commission thread, and what I have for review is a trade, but I figured it should be added for anyone else wondering about this buyer/seller here on the forums. If not allowed I will remove it. Also because this came from a seller on ebay in China. I do not know which seller, but just to note for those out there looking for this particular outfit of what you may be wasting your money on.

Name of Commissioner: arieku
Website/C.com gallery: http://www.cosplay.com/member/7832
Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.): Code Geass Girls Ashford Academy Uniform
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: None will be taking some tomorrow after work.
Timeline (how long your order took to process): About 2 weeks

Pros: Quick to reply

Cons:
1. Lied about condition of item and the items make.
2. Sent false images of item.

A little background here.

3 weeks ago I posted a sale add on the market place selling my Saya Otanashi outfit from Blood+. I had no hits except for arieku offering to trade. I asked to see what she had for trade, and this one fit my current cosplay list. She sent me an image of a nice looking Ashford Academy uniform, so I was excited and accepted a trade. My Saya outfit for the Ashford outfit. We sent our items to each other this past Monday, and I still have no clue if she has received the outfit I sent or not. Yesterday I received this atrocity. The outfit is not the same one as the picture she provided. The jacket is horridly made, and not lined as she claimed it was. It is falling apart around the collar and sleeve seams. There are lose threads everywhere...just overall very shoddy work. The skirt is black and sewn together with white thread...you can imagine how that looks. The top of the skirt is nothing more than fabric folded very messily over a elastic waist band, with the elastic band still showing in one area on the inside.

Final Grade: F

I am extremely disappointed. She has received a very nice outfit for nothing, and I a very shitty one. I understand it was for nothing, but you still do not lie and use false pictures. I am not sure what course of action to take, as again it was a trade. I tried to send her a Pm but her inbox is full. I will keep attempting to send her messages, or hope she sees this. Please be full warned that this buyer/seller lies about the condition of the outfit, and provides false pictures.

Name of Commissioner: Cosplaycommish (Mandy)
Website/C.com gallery: http://www.cosplay.com/member/129492
Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.): Code Geass C.C White Knit Tank Top and Hot Pants.
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: Pictures to be posted tomorrow after work.
Timeline (how long your order took to process): About a month from time of first pm.

Pros: Amazing seamstress! Extremely wonderfully made outfit. Construction is perfection and very sturdy. Fits me like a glove which is just what is needed for this cosplay. She had wonderful communication, even when I somewhat pestered her out of my paranoia from last commissions and being ripped off. She was very understanding and offered reasonable pricing and payment options. Just overall wonderful to work with.

Cons: There are none!

Final Grade: A++++
Many is an amazing seamstress and does nothing short of perfection. I highly recommend this seamstress to anyone who is looking for fair pricing and amazing work.

Name of Commissioner Dream Angels

Website/C.com gallery http://www.dream-angels.net/

Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.) Duster, shorts, skirt, tank top, and arm warmers for Rinoa from Final Fantasy VIII.

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item It's in my gallery for my Rinoa costume!

Timeline (how long your order took to process) I ordered the items in the very end of August, and received them on November 10th.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.

Pros: The work is high quality- they sent me exactly what the advertised, and it fit perfectly.

Cons: Their communication is very shoddy. It's hit or miss whether they'll respond to emails. One day they were emailing me the date they would ship, but then they never emailed the tracking number. So, they aren't the kind of commissioners you can expect frequent updates or fast responses from.

Final Grade: B The costume itself was an A, communication was a C-, so I'm splitting the difference.
