Well that's just peachy. Is there a mod who can take this over or unsticky it or something? It kind of ruins the point of this if its not being updated.

Name of Commissioner: Csddlink

Website/C.com gallery: http://www.csddlink.com

Character commissioned and series/video game: Elizabeth from Kuroshitsuji 's party Dress and and it comes with collar, hoop skirt , and headband (you will have to request that to be added and they gave it for free!)

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


Timeline: 5-6 Weeks from payment to receiving. (it's a complicated dress)

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:
She replied quickly often within a day . so very nice! and the dress is very beautiful. only thing is that the top part is too big but it's my fault because the measurement I gave was wrong. (messed up when converting to inches) But it's a quick fix.

They emailed me with a tracking number and it works. Only thing is that they require a signature for the delivery. which would have been fine if it weren't for my local post office people are lazy son of guns. which meant that I had to go through a lot of trouble just to get it

Still its not their fault but I would have prefer it if it didn't have to so then I could have have it earlier. (got here on 19th but received it a week later due to post office being a d-bag promising to redeliver but never doing it.)

Final Grade: Edit: Found out that I measured myself correctly and they were the ones at fault, still had I found out sooner I would have gotten it fixed by them free so grade is an A-

: This is from her, since I don't have pics with me at the moment http://imageshack.us/a/img12/4564/yv03.jpg


Timeline: May 1 (contacted) - June 26 (costume arrived at my house)

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments: Wow, I'm amazed at how smoothly this whole experience went. I contacted a few people who makes fur suits and she was the first to respond. She's very nice and very descriptive with how she said she was going to make the costume. She asks for half payment up front, but since I didn't have all the money with me, she was kind enough to let me send small payments until I sent enough. A couple weeks after I contacted her I asked her if things were going well and she sent me progress pictures. After that I left her alone, because she's pretty busy with the conventions she goes to and I like to give commissioners their space. She would send progress photos almost every week and would not miss any detail in the photos she sent. When the costume arrived, I wanted to cry, since it's amazing and so soft! It fits a little tight on the chest, but I think it's my fault since I should've given bigger measurements.

The thing is, she lives in Poland so English is a little broken, but it's still easy to understand each other. And shipping was a killer since I'm in the US, she's in Poland, and the costume was heavy @.@ But it's not a big deal.

Overall, she's sooooo nice and it was really fun working with her and I wouldn't hesitate to contact her again c:


Final Grade: A+++

I'm pretty sure they'll be back thinking how long this thread has been running and all. Let's just be patient.

Name of Commissioner: CosplayMandy

Website/C.com gallery: http://photobucket.com/cosplaymandy

Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.): Kai Hiwatari, Beyblade (minus scarf)
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: Pictures to come/None right now

Timeline: March 1 to Jun 10

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.
Contacted Mandy in late Feb to get a quote. Wasn't in a hurry for the costume, asked for a Jun 1st date so that there was no confusion on when I wanted the outfit. Commission included shirt, pants, shoes, belt, belt buckle, and armguards. Didn't hear from her for a while, emailed for progress pics a few times, usually didn't have much to say, sometimes took a while to get back to me. Pleased with the final outfit overall, shoes are perfect, armbands had to modify slightly because they had no buckles or elastic to allow them to be put on normally. Not a big deal. Costume was finished 6/7 and shipped 6/8, got to my house late June.

PROS: Reasonable price, sturdy fabric, fits well, can make shoes,

CONS: sometimes waited weeks to get a response for progress pics, slightly late, armbands had to be modified to fit slightly, studies in China, so shipping takes forever/is expensive

Final Grade: B-[/quote]

Character commissioned and series/video game: Ranmao's Qipao

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: never got a single picture


Timeline: Early April to late June

Pros: none

Cons: I never got my item. I even sent her fabric to use to make the dress and after a few scattered messages and false promises of pictures my deadline came and went with nothing. She never responds to my messages and others have informed me they too are having issues with her. I have reported her for Internet crime now. DO NOT COMMISSION WITH HER!


Final Grade: F+

Name of Commissioner: Codykoko Cosplay

Website/C.com gallery: https://www.facebook.com/CodykokoCosplay

Character commissioned and series/video game: Lucina's Falchion from Fire Emblem: Awakening

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: http://i.imgur.com/vn55Y5J.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ktR2IY3.jpg http://i.imgur.com/Prnlg4m.jpg

Cost: $150 + $25 shipping.

Timeline: Ordered February 24th, received July 1st.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:
First responses were fast, I received a general expect date (which was early May). I did not however get any notice on when they started, progress pics, or notice of when it was shipped. They posted pictures on their Facebook of their first completion of the work, which was another person's order. I commented on it, giving some critique on missing details.

In June, I contacted them to ask when it would arrive, and whether or not mine would be the more detailed version. I was told that if I wanted a more detailed version, I would have to wait a bit longer, which I agreed to, so long as I still get it before the deadline of August 1st. I received the prop today, and despite waiting a tad longer, it is still the less detailed version.

I was honestly expecting a more detailed prop than what I received, especially since I had many many reference pictures. Many details are missing from the blade guard, pommel, and blade itself (balance of color between silver and gold). That being said, I did at least receive something. My recommendation is that if you need a prop they haven't done before, don't risk it. If you need a prop that they've done consistently before (like SAO swords), go ahead.

Final Grade: C+

Name of Commissioner: yoyoninjagirl

Website/C.com gallery: http://yoyoninjagirl.deviantart.com/

Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.): Rita Mordio from Tales of Vesperia, most of the cosplay.

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: http://s115.photobucket.com/user/Sai...mission%20pics
Timeline (how long your order took to process): June 1st (first PM) until July 3rd (about one month)

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:
Pro: This person was one of three people to take up my request, and gave me not only the best price but also the fastest window of time. She promptly (within usually a day) answered my emails and inquiries and kept me up to date. I left her alone to work on it, but she would message me back about updates and such. Basically, she was able to work on the commission independently and also communicate well. The quality of the cosplay is fantastic, and the boot covers deserve a serious mention.
Con: Minimal delays, but nothing big and didn't miss the deadline.

Would work with again.
Final Grade: A

Timeline (how long your order took to process) About 2 months
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.

Pros: amazing screen accurate styling! It's held up from so much bashing and wind with only a bit of damage which is easily fixed. I asked for it to be based on the movie but to have hair at the nape like the park wig to hide my neck fuzzies (i do bday parties too) and it came out just as I wanted it! Pick up at con~ saves money on shipping! Extremely reasonable prices! Felt like I underpaid her!

Cons: Cuts it reaaally close to the deadline but that's the only con

Final Grade: A+

Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.): Skyward Sword Zelda Ceremonial Dress, sailcloth, blue banner, belt and belt gem.
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater
Timeline (how long your order took to process) About a month (rushed order)
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.

Comments: I ran out of time to make my own costumes because if my own commission work so I saw her Zelda and I was just in awe on how perfect it looked! I haven't seen one that I had liked so I sent her a message and asked about the price and wow I was floored at the price! I would have charged at least double! I picked the fabrics myself and shipped them to her to work her magic. It came out perfect. I asked for a few changes and she did them for me amazing quality and craftmanship. The appliqué is very clean. She did it in the small timeframe I gave her and I cannot thank her enough for that.

Cons: The bust is a bit snug but its not enough to complain about. The sailcloth is a tad too big as well since I have a small frame but its understandable~

Final Grade: A+

Timeline: contacted: May 3-July 3

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.
I contacted Mandy on May 1st and got a reply the next day. Sent initial deposit on May 3rd (and made subsequent payments over the next month). She sent completed pictures on July 2nd and shipped it out the next day. Wonderful communication and very professional.

PROS: Everything fit perfectly. The pics above are my actual costume (so it's sized to fit me). Can make other accessory items for the costume (armor pieces, boots). Costume was even better in person than the pictures let on.

CONS: None

Final Grade: A+

Name of Commissioner: Katie/Plays With Strings

Website/C.com gallery: http://playswithstring.deviantart.com/

Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.): Pepper Potts from Iron Man: Armored Adventures [x] I only had her make the tunic.

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: [x]
I will post more pictures once I complete the costume.

Timeline (how long your order took to process):
I had first contacted Katie about the commission back around March 15th. She had completed the commission on July 2nd, which I had finish paying off the commission on July 5th. She had shipped out the commission on July 9th, which had arrived today, July 11th.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.: I had previously worked with Katie before with my Mabel sweater, so I was well aware of how she works. Originally when I had first inquired about the commission, she had informed me that she had another order before mine as well as some vacation time coming up. That was a-ok by me since this commission wasn't going to be worn at least until October. She had let me pick from a variety of colors of string before she had started the commission. She worked very well with a payment plan and kept updating me pretty regularly.

I had received a picture with my first actual update about the commission on May 25th. She informed me that she would have to hand knit my costume due to the thinness of the string was. She kept me informed on her absences from the commission while she was at a convention, or if she was sick, which I know as a commissioner my self, things come up in real life all the time. She kept me updated pretty regularly with an email.

Over all, I am very happy and very satisfied by Katie's work. I usually don't commission a whole lot these days, but due to that I don't know how to knit, I will be continuing to use Katie's awesome skills in the future for any knitted-based cosplay that I may need.

Final Grade: A++++++
