Name of Commissioner: Setsuna Kou
Website/C.com gallery: http://setsunakou.com/
Character commissioned and series/video game: Sailor Chibi Moon from Sailor Moon (Costume, Wig and boots)
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=1104796 (btw - those aren't the boots made by setsuna kou)
Timeline (how long your order took to process): about 3 months
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments: The costume fit perfectly and the wig was a lot better than I had expected it. I love the colors used (especially for the wig). I got a lot of positive feedback, a lot of people told me they liked my costume but I think they were dissapointed when they found out I didn't make it. XD
However, the boots were kind of big/baggy (not the foot part, but around the legs) and it looked weird. Also, the brooch that came with it was really plain so I made a new one (but I'm a perfectionist like that :P).
Final Grade: A

my friend also got her sailor moon costume (and wig and boots) from them, and it turned out good to, although her skirt is longer than mine (we both ordered the same skirt length)..

I'm as shocked as you. O_O

My sister has hated Setsuna Kou ever since her transaction with her. And even I have to admit that I don't think Setsuna looked at the reference pictures twice before making my sisters's... Monstrosity.

Well great for me. I just once again fell into a set up, but this time with Miyori and Infernoman no less. Anyone know how to contact Miyori other than here?

EDIT: Okay talked with Miyori...it's not her! WOOT! *whipssweatdrop* I know she isn't bad, what was I thinking! I love Miyori...

Name of Commissioner: Chibi-kun
Website/C.com gallery:http://www.freewebs.com/chibi-kun/
Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.): ANBU Vest from Naruto
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: http://images.cosplay.com/gallery.ph...5&member=45345
Timeline (how long your order took to process): Commissioned April 25- Received:June 5
Describe your Experience.
Pros:Very professional, Kept me updated on status; fabric purchase, sewing process, sent progress pics and when purchase was sent.Catered to my special request of sword loop on back of vest. Arrived in good condition.

Cons:Not many.A little hard to get to get a hold of but usually responded within 72 hours. A little tight but still wearable. Will be binding for character so it fits then. A bit tricky to get into with rear zipper, so not 100% accurate but easily tweaked to be so.

Comments: Overall I am satisfied with the product and would commission from her again. Received before deadline and looks great. Does good wig work so may commission for a wig.

Final Grade: A-

I though Chibi-kun only did wigs? When did they start doing commissions?

Someone was bound to point this out eventually, but "Chibified Cosplay"=Rain Miko. The "link to website" links posted on the reviews of Rain Miko point to chibifiedcosplay.com, the same link the person reviewing "Chibified Cosplay" posted.

As for my own commission experiences, I had two that went reasonably well all around, one where communication was good throughout but the product was bad, and one that started all right but went downhill fast. However, I'm not so sure I should post reviews because:
  • All of these happened at least three years ago
  • I didn't take/no longer have photos of the "bad" products (and one of the "good" ones I don't have a picture that I took myself, just what's on the commissioner's site)
  • Since my transactions, two of the commissioners I dealt with have disappeared from the 'net altogether and one isn't currently taking custom orders (and meanwhile has changed how she takes orders anyway)
  • I don't wanna reopen any old wounds
  • Any message I post that has links gets caught in the spam filter

Should I review them anyway?

If you feel other people may be successfully warned of or recommended to your commissions through the relation of your experiences, than I would, were I you ^^ If they have utterly disappeared and/or retracted from the commissioning front, however, "opening old wounds" certainly wouldn't be neccessary ^^ Thank you for your help, though!

And sorry for the delay, all :3 We are updated!
