Timeline (how long your order took to process) first contact was March 22nd, recieved the product May 2nd, when i needed them.
Describe your Experience: over all very pleasant! she was very cooperative and nice to talk to, and willing to discuss details.

Pros: good work, fairly fast, very fair pricing. accurate and well made!
Cons: none i can think of.
Comments: definitely would recommend this for anyone looking for a Chii ear accessory! only slight problem, the band was white i believe and stood out horribly and was a bit hard. but this was easily fixed by just wrapping ribbon around it to match the costume. also, when you wear them over your ears, it's really kind of hard to hear. kind nice to dim out the convention noise though!
Final Grade: B+

Name of Commissioner: SexualDisgrace
Website/ gallery:
Character commissioned and series/video game: Yuuko from xxxholic
Timeline: 1+ year
Describe your Experience: I paid for part of the costume in January with a late June deadline. Deadline passed with many excuses and little communication. I still wanted the costume made so I waited longer until I was told in December that the costume wouldn't be finished. I am still awaiting a $200 reimbursement, and I haven't heard anything since the December email.

Character Comissioned and series/videogame: Mana Ouma (final version) --,Screenshot ( it is the one of the left)
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: I will post later, but here a link of what it is supposed to look like http://www.BANNED*FOR*
Timeline: Order is March 21 and received yesterday April 4th
Describe your Experience: Well after seeing guilty crown, I really wanted to d the final form of Mana since it such an awesome design, and I lack the sewing skills to complete it. I did a little digging and this is one of the only places making it (my con is in May so comissioning was out of the questions at this point), so this was my best option.
Pros: Fast deleivery! Wow, their website states it will take about 30 days and I got it in about 2 weeks. The material is sturdy and it looks just like its photos does. It was well out together and look nice all together.
Cons: I requested a more custom fit, and the bottom skirt does not really fit, I can get it on, but it is a little short. Also, the top defiantly shows some.. goodies. Also the bottom skirt (not the big flowing portion) is like a shiny material, when in ther photo it is more mat. Also, it took them a couple days to get back to you when you ask them a question.

Other than that, for the price I paid, it was a nice costume. I will have to see what I can do about the top, but everything else fits nice and the quality is really good. I would recommend them to someone if they need a decent costume in a short amoutn fo time.

Final grade: A- (mostly for the measurments being not accurate despite requesting a custom fit, also the lack in communciation --never told me the item even shipped).

This person is a damn thief, taking commissions from people and disappearing once money is sent her way. I commissioned and paid her in Dec for a wig commission due in May 2013, and she has not responded to any of my multiple emails since Jan 4th, when she confirmed that she got the wigs I sent her to be styled. I don't even care about the money, but the wigs I sent her were worth $100 and were very difficult to find. Any time I hear her name brought up, it's from another sad client wondering where she went.

Name of Commissioner: cosmonde

Website/ gallery: cosmonde @ ebay

Character commissioned and series/video game: Kaname Madoka from Madoka Magica wig

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: Base wig only
Wig pigtails (I'm so sorry for my face here)
Not worn

Timeline (how long your order took to process): Paid March 18th, shipped April 1st, received today (April 9th)

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:

As usual, and as expected from cosmonde, they had amazing communication. Again, as usual, no problems contacting or understanding them!

Also per normal cosmonde expectations, the wig is super high quality, soft to touch, doesn't tangle, and doesn't lose its style.

It came pre-cut/styled. Note that the wig's bangs ARE cut like the photo, but I rearranged them so I could sweep it to the side, as that's what I prefer. You could also cut them straight across if that's what you like.

Package was beat up a bit but nothing bad. I chose the cheapest shipping option and it took one week to get there. From my experience, the fastest one takes around 3-4 days, so it's not a big difference. The delay in shipping from the point of payment was my fault, as the payment took 2 days to process.

They also (as-as-as usual) sent little thank you gifts like Madoka cards and a teddy bear.

What surprised me this time was that they sent MANY extra bows! I didn't know what to use the other ones for so I used them as bows for the skirt/shirt area. I didn't realize it while taking pictures but the red string part was supposed to be taken off, as it's the bows Madoka wears in her school outfit, and the larger pink ones are for her magical girl outfit. Anyways, the point is they sent a LOT of bows. Like. A lot. Which saves me a lot of $$ and time, and I wasn't expecting them, so that's a HUGE bonus.


Absolutely none!

Final Grade: I can never give cosmonde anything but an A+++++++, which is exactly what they deserve!

Name of Commissioner: Naomi Cosplay


Pictures: Me wearing - Link
On mannequin: Link

Timeline: Received initial quote Jan 29th
Payment, fabric selection, and construction took until April 5th
Shipped April 6th
Received April 10th

Experience: Extremely nice. My request for a quote was answered in less than a day and the woman that was e-mailing me was very personable and genuinely cared about what I wanted for my kimono. She asked me what I had in mind then sent me many pictures of fabric samples until I was satisfied on a pattern and a color for the obi belt. During the construction of it she sent me updates weekly with pictures so I knew how it was doing. although the kimono is not made with authentic Japanese kimono fabric (I didn't mind, I still love it very much) Naomi does visit Japan often and would be able to get traditional fabric if you would like that.

Beyond that, the quality of the kimono was very nice. Naomi even went an extra mile and sew in a coat hanger into the fabric, knowing I would have no idea how to secure the obi without assistance! There is velcro to help keep it in place that is very nicely concealed and will be very helpful when I'm moving around.

Overall grade: A+ Amazing service and wonderful product. She does cosplay costumes as well as custom kimonos, be sure to check her out!

Pros: Seller was really fast on getting these out to me! They were also super friendly. Gloves look awesome and are very comfortable and look just as shown.

Character commissioned and series/video game: Dave Strider from Homestuck. (Fan-made Military outfit)

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: =3

Timeline (how long your order took to process): Paid November 14th 2012
shipped April 7th,
recieved April 11th.
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:
This was my first time ever commisioning something from this lady. Her work was amazing. No problems contacting her or communicating. Durring construction she'd update every so often and when ever I wanted to see something, she'd always send me private updates of the outfit. The outfit was a reasonable price aswell.

The entire outfit is amazing quality. Well made, she evened sewed in a coat hanger into the fabric of the jacket for easy storage. The pictures look exactly how the outfit is up close.
The shipping was incredibly fast as well wow, I live In Ontario and she lives over in Lithuania. I was expecting it to take atleast 3 weeks but it came within 1.

I only have a couple cons, that is that the jacket was a little snug in the armpit area ( I should have mentioned to her I have pretty broad shoulders). Another is that I wish the hat had lining in the inside, but that can be easily fixed~

Overall grade: A+ Amazing work and service. She does a whole variety of cosplays, please do check her out!
Upcoming Cons:
Fan Expo
Forest City Comic Con

In Progress:
Zer0- Borderlands 2: 25%

Timeline: 1 month
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.:
My experience with him started by me messaging him thinking he was someone completely different that I got a quote from before.
Turns out he wasn't the same guy.
He had a much better profile though overall so I asked him to do it instead.
He asked me for details. I told him the size and gave him reference pictures.
He requoted me and helped me through the process of payment (It was my first time.)
After payment went through he got right to working on it.
He was always available to contact.
During the process my email that I initially contacted him got hacked by some guy from china (He took my blizzard account too, except blizzard actually helps their customers) and I contacted him from a new email. Once he knew it was me he was willing to keep me updated any time I was wondering how it was coming.

When it was done he sent me a picture of the gunblade (Which is awesome I have to add.)

I put the last bit of payment in and it was on the way.
A little over a week later it arrived in perfect condition. I've been glued to the thing since with a big goofy grin on my face.

This was my first time ever commissioning anything and at first I was skeptical but this guy was one of the most honest people I have ever bought anything from. He helped me through the process and made a wicked sword for me.

I absolutely reccomend him to anyone. He is an absolute professional.
Final Grade: A+

Character commissioned and series/video game Belle's Ball Gown from Beauty and the Beast
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item I will post up pictures as soon as I can. <3 In the meantime, you can just look at the golden Belle ball gown on their website. It really does look exactly like it, I just had a few minor changes to it.
Timeline From the time I talked to them about a few changes I wanted to the time I bought the outfit was about two weeks. From the time I purchased to the time it arrived, another two weeks.
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments. The person who talked to me was very kind and helpful. When I received the dress, I fell in love! It was beautiful, looked exactly like the pictures but with the little additions I had asked for, and the material felt amazing. There weren't any loose threads, weird seams, or anything like that. The only con I have is a language barrier, they aren't very good at speaking English but they do speak it well enough to understand you and for you to understand them. If they didn't understand something, they let me know. c: Other than that, no cons. It was a great experience!

Name of Merchant: cosplaywig
Item purchased (please include quantity): This wig to be used for Momoi from Kuroko no Basuke
Links to picture(s) of your received item: Not the best picture, but it'd stored away atm and I'd rather not take it out again. "orz The wig color is true to the picture on the site.

Timeline (how long your order took to process): I ordered on March 19th, got it on the 28th. Chose the free shipping option (but with $3 tracking) to Canada.
Pros: Came super fast, I was really surprised. Even though I ordered it on the 19th, it didn't leave HK til the 25th, so it got here in 3 days~
Cons: There are 2 kinda noticeable spots near the skin top where you can see the netting, not sure if I can hide them completely but I'll live haha.

Comments: The wig does get really messy very easily, not tangled though, the fibers just get out of place and go everywhere at even the slightest movement. But I think it's just the result of a long wig and I'll need to spray it down, this is my first long wig that goes past my shoulders, so I'm not too sure haha.
It's a very soft wig though and I combed through the whole thing upon receiving it and no fibers came out.

Final Grade: This is my first time ordering from cosplaywig, they definitely live up to their rep and will buy from them again. A+ <3

Mykaios Review

Before I start, I just wanted to apologize for the long read, but I feel I must be detailed with this.

Name of Commissioner:
Mykaios a.k.a "Fate/COSPLAY"

Website / gallery:

Character commissioned:
Nanoha's staff - "Raising Heart" (Movie version.)

Series / Video game:
Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha

Absolutely none.

Timeline (how long your order took to process):
8 months and counting. I paid her in the beginning of September.

Describe your Experience:
Well, this was my first time ever commissioning someone and it was for my first convention - so yea I was pretty damn excited. Mykaios was the first to email me back, she was pretty nice, and she seemed excited to work on my order. She acted professionally, even giving out an order form/contract to sign. My first deadline was Halloween - October 31st. I paid her the first half of the total on September 10th, 2012 and began my wait. Mykaios promised to send my progress photos in mid-October. Then it all just went downhill from here.

October 25th - I asked for a progress picture. And she says "she needs a sunny day to take a picture", which I just found weird. But promised to get one over the weekend and ship it out. I paid her the last half of my order out of excitement. (HUGE mistake on that part.) She guarantees the 28th. On her facebook she posts that she will be trying to ship out everything for the next few days.

October 31st - Nothing. Then she says the week after Halloween once the weather clears up she'll ship it. But she was shipping out other things for the past few days, why not mine?

November 16th - I still have nothing to show. No pictures, or anything. She tells me she had surgery recently, but what happened to that previous week she'd ship it? Then I find out other people received their items that month...

November 23rd - I started to get kinda tense over this, but tried not to worry as my actual convention wasn't until March and surely I'd have it by then. I gave her my texting number so she could get a picture of it that way. She agreed that would be much easier on her. Again, Mykaios promised shipping and pictures in the next few days and I got nothing.

December 4th - She tells me she has been trying to find a replacement part for the staff that was too small and didn't paint right so she'll be trying to find one while out Christmas shopping. (But it was all ready and set to go a month earlier?) Then she says she can't find a red sphere anywhere during Christmas season. Which I say would be kinda impossible for the time.

December 14th - Mykaios informs me that another one of her packages she sent out got damaged, so she wanted to put insurance on mine so it wouldn't be the same. I gave her some useful links to try and speed up this process... So I had to wait for her to order it after the Holidays and such. I really started to lose my grip here.

Now it starts to get ridiculous.

January 17th - She says she'll ship it out next week with pictures and such AGAIN. It wouldn't be until the week after I'd message her again because the week inbeween she had been posting plenty of pictures of her pony scarfs and hats but my picture is nowhere to be seen. Time and time again she had been promising pictures "as soon as possible." I just had to counter it this time.

January 23rd - Still waiting, and I emailed her again. An argument ensues. This time she tells me ALLL about her Katsucon convention troubles in detail and also that she has three weeks to ship my commission out. She tells me she has no room to take a picture of it inside even though she was posting pictures of her desks and such filled with pony scarf materials. I even gave her some suggestions to take a picture of it easier, such as just taking a picture of a part of it or wherever she stores it at the moment. It did not have to be the most glamorous picture ever. I just wanted proof it exists; albeit I was angry at the time of posting.

She does pay for a post office label though, shipment dated for the 24th. Through Priority which should only take 3 days at most. Maybe NOW I will finally get it?

February 8th - Still nothing. Another email. She claims the package "got lost." I repeat to her again my concerns for the past months. She did NOT send it with insurance even though she said she would back in December because of the size of my commission. She claims she was even missing packages before mine and still did not insure it. The tracking never went past "Electronic label received."

I wanted to see if I could find the package myself, so I went and contacted the USPS on my own, and they said they didn't even RECEIVE the package at their post office! I demanded a refund and she absolutely refused me one. Not even a partial even though she has refunded people before. But she did offer to remake it.

February 20th - My convention is in the next week or so, one last piece of hope that I could get my staff before then still stands. I told her I needed it by the first of March, even though I wasn't leaving until the 14th. Why should I be giving her extra time anymore is beyond me.

March 7th - She tells me it will be done by the time I get back (next week, according to the date I told her) and she'll be shipping it then WITH pictures. I left for my con that following Thursday. No surprises here.

March 20th - I came back from my con just hoping that I would of received some kinda of mail at all. Now she tells me she'll be sending it out the end of this week or the beginning of the next.

April 2 - Mykaios tells me she has her backlog of all pictures to be posting up, so why isn't she posting them already? She's making lots of text posts on her facebook, even long ones of apologizing from NOT posting the pictures. But still no actual pictures. If you have the time to make a status and post, just upload the pictures in the same timespan!

April 12th - Today. I'm writing this review. I am fed up of excuses. Tired of waiting, and sick of hearing empty promises again and again. One last email and now she says her lights are broken so she can't take pictures and her cards were stolen. But she's pretty fast to post pictures of her broken lights themselves.

Now here's my thought on this: she can't take a picture of it inside because her lights are broken, but before she said she didn't have the room to take one inside anyway, so why does it matter? I tell her to go outside and take a picture there. She has not replied to my email since this afternoon.

Replied fast for the most part, she was nice. Acted professional.

She claims she does not spend any of the commission money until things are posted and shipped, but she will absolutely refuse to refund you. So what is the point here?

Won't send an easy text or pictures, but will post pictures of everything else that are not her commissions. She admits to not posting pictures and being behind on them, but instead of explaining, how about just posting them instead?

For something that should of only been taking a few weeks at most, I am still sitting here eight months later with NOTHING besides her apologizes and her empty promises. It was I first who contacted her numerous times about updates. She has missed both my deadlines, many months apart even. And Mykaios has given me nothing for it.

At this rate, I'll probably never see one lick of it. Ever. She has stolen my money and does not plan to give it back.

I will be happy to send anyone the emails of which I have archived if no one believes my experience. I regret commissioning her whole-heartedly. Mykaios says she has good reviews on her Etsy and places, but I have seen the negative ones out there all similar to my situation. Those were taken down after they were resolved. I just hope by posting this review that SOMETHING will be done about this. The situation is just plain ridiculous.

Final Grade: F

Even if she does send it out or get pictures, my review will still stand.

Character commissioned and series/video game: Kaname Chidori-Full Metal Panic. Blazer and Skirt. School Uniform. Plus the hair bow!
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item:
Timeline (how long your order took to process): About 4 months.
Describe your Experience:

I contacted Erisaka in December after seeing all of her amazing reviews and she quoted me about 150 dollars for my cosplay. I paid for the cosplay at the end of January and it just arrived today to my surprise! The fit is absolutely perfect and whole thing is adorable. It's a cosplay that I will truly cherish! It was well worth the money spent! It's one of the most comfortable cosplays I have ever worn! Erisaka does not disappoint! The material is breathable and I could seriously sleep in it.

Pros: She was extremely patient with me while I came up with the funds, the fit is perfect and the material is really good. The whole cosplay is really well made! I got one progress photo through the whole process. She's also extremely polite. I will contact her again for future cosplays!

Cons: None except I had to ask for a progress photo which she got to me right away so it's not really a con.
