Timeline: One month to finish! (It arrived in Four Months though because of USPS issues. This isn't the commissioners fault.)

Describe your Experience: She is incredibly talented! She's an artist and a very responsible and professional commissioner. She draws, paints, makes jewelry, and is very talented in so many artistical areas! I contacted Atobe in the beginning of February this year, I found her gallery on D.A. and I saw that she was taking commissions. Immediately I contacted her and asked her if she was willing to take this order. I've commissioned her for three cosplays, but this is the first one she finished and she sent it early, because we wanted to make sure that the cosplay would arrive. She's a joy to work with, she will always reply to your notes and your emails with incredible speed and she is very VERY patient and VERY RESPONSIBLE. She shipped the cosplay on May and by May 22nd the USPS stopped updating their status, we were both very concerned and she even took her time to call the USPS and talk to them. It took four months for my package to finally arrive, but it got here and it arrived safe and sound! She did a wonderful job packaging it and it arrived in perfect condition! Through the whole time we waited for the package, she showed concerned and we even discussed redoing the commission again. I know that this wasn't her fault and I understand just how crazy USPS can be. My experience with her through the whole process of the three commissions has been a wonderful one. Specifically speaking about this commission: She always showed me pictures, discussed measurements, and I'm very pleased with the result. I will definitely commission her again!

Pros: Replies quickly, has an In-Progress List in her DeviantArt account, explains in depth what she will do, shows you LOTS of pictures, and keeps you updated! She is a wonder to work with and she's very honest and a sweetheart to work with!

Cons: 0, NONE

Final Grade: A++++++

Name of Merchant: punkshop02
Website: http://stores.ebay.com/Commission-Wig-Cosplay-Wig-Store
Item purchased: Kuroko Tetsuya (Kuroko no Basuke) Wig - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kurokos-Basketball-Tetsuya-Kuroko-cosplay-Ice-blue-wig-punkshop-costume-/110869090336?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19d050 1020
Links to picture(s) of your received item: (will put them up when I take some)
Timeline: Bought item on the 19th of August (6:09PM EST), shipped out on the 20th (3:27AM EST), and arrived here on the 25th (2-3 days before the estimated delivery time)

Pros: Quick and easy purchase, the seller was very friendly and helpful, and I'm pleased with the product I received Wig is really soft, and can be easily styled.
Cons: I guess that since their store uses pictures from other sites (like most), and some of them are even cosplay pictures (which is what the product I purchased shows), it didnt give me a very good idea of what I should expect. As for the product, my only complaint is that the color was a bit darker than I had hoped. It actually looks more like this Kuroko wig lol

Other/Comments: I should mention that this is my first time buying a wig, so I'm not totally familiar with how they should be (other than the obvious) so I'll just go step-by-step with my ordering process lol. Okay so first, I started off with researching just like I do for cosplay sites so not to get scammed or get a crappy product, and I kinda of narrowed it down to three, and then finally chose this one. It had good reviews for the wig I was planning to buy (7 of them had been sold already), so I went ahead and made my purchase, and immediately I got my eBay confirmation email along with a friendly little note from the seller. Then not 9 hrs later (times posted above) I got all my shipping information, and my wig arrived earlier than expected Okay so here, when I got my package, it arrives in this a4 manila envelope, all tied up very securely, which at first I was like, 'they just stuff it in there like that??' (Is that how they normally come?) I don't know but when I took it out it looked fine so I'm not gonna complain about that lol so yea its a great wig, and very easy to style; like by just combing the top with your fingers or a comb can fluff it up, spike it, or whatever

Good experience, happy with my wig, all is well

Name of Merchant: QQCosplay
Website: www.qqcosplay.com
Item purchased (please include quantity): Tifa from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children
Links to picture(s) of your received item: Uploading later

Timeline (how long your order took to process): Ordered August 23rd with a deadline of September 15th. Shipped September 2nd, Arrived September 4th

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.: I needed a costume quickly before a con, and I knew it'd be an arm and a leg to hire a commissioner. I stumbled upon QQCosplay, and the price was very reasonable. I contacted them beforehand to inquire about rush shipping so that I can get the cosplay by the 15th. The representative told me that there would be no need rush order it. I also inquired about using matte vinyl/pleather for the cosplay. They said no problem, we can do that. Then I sent my measurements for a custom fit and went on our seperate ways. Just when I was inquiring about the status, I got an e-mail stating that the cosplay has been shipped via 2-Day shipping. I was shocked, and surprised at the quickness! Arrived today!
The material is super sturdy and everything fits just right. I love the accuracy of it, and it looked exactly like the picture, and they picked the right material for it. Definitely a cosplay I know will last! Considering this was a chinese seller and they're notorious for inaccurate measurements, I was pleasantly surprised and look forward to wearing it at AWA!

Pros: Great communication (E-mails responded to within 24 hours), Great quality, Great pricing, and extremely fast turn-around time

Cons: Only con I can really say is that the costume is heavy, but that's to be expected with pleather/vinyl costumes. ^_^

Final Grade: A

Timeline (how long your order took to process)
About a week or 2..Time for the wig to get there and a day or 2 to style then another few days to get here..Not counting weekends..All in all VERY fast!!

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.
Well let's start out with I traded for this commission. I did pay for the base wig, but I traded for the actual commissioner part. She is very nice and replies fast. Even showed a ton of progress shots. We texted instead of on here so it was easier to send pics. She is a great commissioner and I recommend her to others.

There are no cons here..Nothing bad..

A+

Timeline (how long your order took to process):
It took about a week.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.
It was alright. First person who saw me wanted to draw me. First time that's happened to me. It was really important because the same convention i went to last year was awful. No cosplay and felt really out of place (Not much of an anime fan) The costume is still not 100% but i blame myself on that. Still i liked it and others did as well. I do plan on being a permanent customer.

Cons:
Waited till the last minute to send it

Final Grade:
C+

Name of Commissioner: Eden Rassette / HarlequinCosplay
Website/C.com gallery: http://www.etsy.com/people/klypper
Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.): Black pleated skirt for a Makoto Sawatari cosplay
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: (Will post later)
Timeline (how long your order took to process): About three weeks? Something like that.
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.

I've been planning a very simple cosplay that consists of casual pieces that are pretty easy to find. I needed a black pleated skirt, but couldn't find any that weren't too short for my tastes. So, I scoured Etsy and found Eden Rassette. I hired her to do the pleated skirt (which ended up being $37 including shipping, a very good price), and about three weeks or so later, I got it! (My deadline wasn't even until November, so I was very pleasantly surprised.) It's absolutely wonderful and fits me perfectly. The fabric is so soft! The only quip I had was that the waistband was a little bulky for the top I'll be wearing (a close-fitting turtleneck), and she said she'll alter it free of charge. (All I have to do is pay for shipping, which is just a couple bucks, no problem at all.)

I'm very, very happy and will definitely hire her again when I need a great piece for a great price.


Final Grade:
A+!

Item purchased: Kuroko Tetsuya (Kuroko no Basuke) Seirin Basketball Uniform [Costume - Bball Shirt & Shorts) + Customize Sized - Link
Links to picture(s) of your received item: Crappy and taken on my phone but here~ Shirt 1 - Shirt 2 - Shorts 1 - Fabric Closeup
Timeline: Ordered August 19th, Shipped September 3rd, and Received September 7th.

Pros: Communication was good - replied pretty quick when I had questions, made sure to confirm all my information and know when I needed it by - Fast shipping, Costume is acceptable despite what Im going to put in the cons.

Cons: The costume was a bit too small, I mean not like horribly, but along the lines of if you have grown out of something, so it would have been nice if it was bigger and the shirt didnt cut off so short. The quality wasn't as good as it could have been either. Sewn a bit funny, not very noticeably, but still.

Also (I wasnt inconvenienced by this, but someone else might be if they decide to buy from them) they'd lied about the date it'd been shipped out. I mean, they still had plenty of time before the date I needed my purchase, but when I emailed them just curious about the progress of it because it was about the time they'd said it'd be done (on Sept. 1st) I was told it'd already been shipped August 31st and they were waiting for the information to update, then they'd give me the tracking number. So, I waited and finally on Sept. 3rd I emailed them asking why hadnt I gotten the tracking number yet if itd been shipped almost 4 days ago? Then later that day, I was emailed the shipping information and I can clearly tell it was shipped that day. Which wasn't a problem, but they didn't have to lie. I even received the package only 4 days later, pretty quick.

Anyways, despite the grade Im giving them because what I got is acceptable for me, I'm not going to recommend them 100%. Feels a bit sketchy to me I guess? Despite that their Facebook page has like 90k likes, I was still worried the whole time about it. Mostly because I couldn't find reviews anywhere on them. But I could just be paranoid, and I wouldn't wholeheartedly tell you not to buy from them either. Just keep in mind it is a merchant and not a commissioner despite the option to pay extra for a custom size.

Final Grade: B

Timeline It took a little over a month which was fine, I didn't really have a deadline

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments I was very pleased with the whole experience. They had very detailed instructions for measurements. Very good communication through e-mails with update pictures and even color choices for the captains coat lining. This was my first commission and it went very smooth. I had the costume made at the first of this year and have worn it to two cons and it has held very well. I would highly recommend Naomi Cosplay.

http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphoto...60758946_n.jpg

Timeline: August 21 - September 6th

Describe your Experience: I asked Negai through DA Private Messaging about being able to make a fleece hat for me and she said that she would do it. And you would never gonna believe how much she is charging me: 23 bucks! The price was definitely right! And so we have been communicating back and forth and of course she sent me progress pictures. She would do exactly how you want it like I would tell her to be the wires in the horn so it would stand, and she pretty much did that without any problems. She lives at the west coast while I live in the east coast, but the shipping only took 2 days even though she was from across the country. I was very pleased with the hat since I think it look so adorable and she really make the hat look more accurate from the references I gave her. The only problem was the arms since its a little stiff, but thats not really her fault since I couldn't tell how much should it be stuffed. Heck she made that hat look so cute that I would even consider it as a plushie as well. LOL Best part was that she even refund the rest of the shipping money that she doesn't need to pay for it. So if you want a fleece hat for casual wear or for cosplay I would totally recommend her!

Pro: Shipped very fast, Good Communicator, Very nice person, and the hat looks amazing and it fits well!

Con: I got nothing!

Final Grade: A+
