Name of Commissioner: kittencupcake on Etsy

Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.) Fionna from Adventure Time Hat

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: https://scontent-a-lax.xx.fbcdn.net/...73851342_n.jpg

Timeline (how long your order took to process) : Paid for it on Aug. 30 it was Shipped Sept. 5 and I got it Sept. 12.

Describe your Experience: Was browsing the web looking for a Fionna hat and the Offical CN one has very flimsy ears so I wanted one that had ears that stayed up. Found this Etsy shop where they make them made to order for not a bad price. Shop page said it would be made/shipped in 1-2 weeks and it got to me in 1 week and 6 days I was surprised on how quick it got here. I have tried it on once and it fits perfect and the ears hold up well.

Final Grade: A+

Name of Commissioner: Ichigo M.
Website/C.com gallery: http://www.cosplay.com/member/87394/
Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.): Utena Rose Bride ball gown.
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: http://i41.tinypic.com/2lw2jp4.jpg (with hoopskirt and not yet completed) http://i40.tinypic.com/33b3hwo.jpg (Completed without the hoopskirt)


Timeline (how long your order took to process): About 3 months. July-September
Describe your Experience.


Where do I even start.

Ichigo M was an absolute dream to work with. I checked out her website and it said she specialized in ballgowns. After seeing her C.C gown and her Euphemia gown, I knew I had found my commissioner. I immediately emailed her and she got back to me right away. We settled on the price and a payment plan. I sent her the first two payments and measurements. Right away, she emailed me back stating she had bought the fabric already and was getting to work on my gown.

She then soon sent me a progress photo of the gown. I was just stunned. It wasn't even finished yet and it looked amazing already. She sent me a final photo of the entire cosplay even before I sent her the final payment!

I sent her the final payment about two weeks ago and she shipped it out right away. My deadline wasn't even until November!

The photo doesn't do it justice. I pull it out of the package and I'm floored by the cosplay. It's exactly how I wanted it but better.

As a bonus, I didn't even know she did this. She made the teal skirt around the top of the skirt, detachable with snaps for easy storage and the little gold balls on the shoulder pads detachable with snaps as well. Imagine my surprise! I completely love the idea of detachable pieces.

Edit: The skirt somehow was not fitting correctly around my hoopskirt when it arrived and I contacted her to correct the problem even though she had stated she had stopped taking commissions for the time being. She ended up making me a brand new skirt during Thanksgiving Break and shipping it quickly! The skirt came out even more beautiful this second time around if that's even possible. She only charged me for the materials!


I ended up wearing it to Con-Alt-Delete and it was well received! I got so many compliments including one from Vic Mignogna himself.

Pros:
Amazingly friendly, responds quickly, works fast and delivers!


Cons: Absolutely none!


Final Grade: A++++!

If I could, I would have something commissioned from her again!

Name of Commissioner: EZ Cosplay

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

Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.) Bass Armstrong of Dead or Alive 5 (vest, shirt, do rag, belts, and pants

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: http://www.missionstartpodcast.com/1...-about-it.html

Timeline (how long your order took to process) : Paid for it on August 30, 2012. Received on December 12, 2012.

Describe your Experience: Commissioned a custom costume and asked for the vest and pants. The contact person offered the do rag, belts, and shirt as well. Early good communication broke down quickly. Several e-mails were not returned and the costume arrived without notice only 2 weeks before I was to wear it at a convention. The costume arrived in poor quality, with several parts not as ordered or as referenced from pictures. The materials were cheap, the seams uneven, and I was told that their sewing staff is not good at design work. They eventually agreed to a partial refund with the rest to be returned when they received the costume back. The costume was mailed back on December 18, 2012 and I have yet to receive the rest of my money.

Although I expressed my displeasure, they have since added this costume to their catalog for regular sale.

The link I referenced in my pictures includes a detailed review of the product.

Final Grade: F+

based on this: http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a1...psddc795ec.jpg
Timeline: About 2 weeks
Describe your Experience: A very good experience! I posted a wanted ad and EB was one of the people who replied to it. Communication was always quick and I was given updates frequently without having to ask for them. I got an update after each step of the process. The price was very reasonable...basically an easy, flawless transaction. My only critique is that it could probably have used a second coat of paint, but the work of the mold carving is very nice, the casting is great (no cracks and seems quite sturdy yet remarkable light) and considering I wanted it in a fairly short deadline (By Halloween), I'm happy! I would certainly recommend EB as a prop maker.
Final Grade: A

Timeline (how long your order took to process)

Order Date: October 3rd, 2013
Ship Date: October 4th, 2013
Delivery Date: October 15th, 2013

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.

Ordering was a breeze, was shipped out the next day. It hung out in limbo for quite a while [expected with overseas orders!] until it popped up in New York on the 12th. It was packed up nicely and the seller also included a free wig cap. The wig fit perfectly [Something I was worried about ordering from overseas and having a what I thought was a huge head.] and did not smell like it was sitting around for ages.

Final Grade: A+

To put it bluntly, she took the money and ran.
Happy to reply to messages until I'd sent her the money and then rarely got any contact, she now hasn't logged in for exactly 1 month.
Never ever consider commissioning her, no matter how pleasant she comes across before hand, I learnt that the hard way.
Perhaps it's time for the mods to consider the removal of her account? Seems she does this a lot.

She's been scamming and then laying low...then scamming again. I almost fell into her trap a while ago. Thankfully, she stopped responding and disappeared. Horrible to see she's back at it. Sorry for the experience you had.

Yep, found all that out a month after I paid her. Being new to cosplay.com I didn't think to check for a reviews area, I just kinda assumed someone who had been a member for 3 years could be trusted.
Only got myself to blame though, I didn't do my research and was silly enough to send via a PayPal gift as she requested. x_x

Name of Commissioner: Wynderkind Studios
Website/C.com gallery: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/wynderkind/
Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.): 12" Night Elf ears
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a3...ps5a1c055a.jpg
Timeline (how long your order took to process): Met deadline with ease

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:
I have a cheap pair of long elf ears I bought a few years back for an Illidan costume, but I found Wynderkind's ears on a random Google search and fell in love immediately. They are gigantic! So I Emailed her and asked for a quote, and bought them immediately after. We had a shipping mishap that ended up being both our faults, but Tara was awesome and reshipped immediately after the dreaded post office returned them to her.

Communication was constant and informative throughout - she even had to recast a pair due to air bubbles and I'm happy she made another pair just right. The quality of these things is wonderful; they are a bit heavy due to the thickness of the latex, but they will most likely last me forever with proper care. I still need to figure out how I'm going to attach them, as they're too heavy for spirit gum, but these things are perfect for a night elf.

Final Grade: A+! Thank you so much, Tara!

I'm glad I didn't commission her. I saw her shitty wigs and laughed at the price she was trying to charge and new she had to be a scammer, but had no proof.
