Yeah, not saying they're going to do it, but a lot of scam artists usually are great until payment and then tend to disappear. You should post your review once you have recieved whatever you ordered ^^

I think I'll be posting a review here soon. Just kind of lazy and I don't want to give the wrong grade and such ^^;

I'm going to have to agree with this.
white_rabbit, it's nice that you're excited about your future commission, but right now you're in a very delicate area for customers. No one is going to be ravenously refreshing this page in desperation to know what the outcome of your costume will be, and providing pictures to the ones they showed to YOU is extremely misleading.
I'm going to leave this unreferenced for right now. When you have received your order and have thorough, comprehensive opinions on the experience in an updated post, let me know and I'll link it appropriately ^^

Also: Updated!

Character commissioned and series/video game: two mini-lolita hats,
one was fall themed, and the other a black and blue design.

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: Will post in a bit

Timeline: About 3 weeks

Describe your Experience:

Pros: She was very communicative and posted in progress photographs.
She took the time to answer my questions and ideas.
When I finally saw both hats they were lovely! I won serious points with my friend for the fall hat that was particularly amazing! The quality of both hats were wonderful and the price for them was incredible.

Cons: Only that I didn't keep the other hat. It was so lovely.

Final Grade: A+

Name of Commissioner: Velvet_Eden/ Hoshi Designs

Website/C.com gallery: http://www.freewebs.com/velvet_eden/index.htm

Item commissioned: Gothic Lolita top hat

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: None at the moment

Timeline (how long your order took to process): About 2-3 weeks

Pros: She made the hat to my exact order. I said to make the base hat black and then do a black and white theme throughout. It came out beautifully! I can't wait to wear it with my outfit. ^^ She also kept in contact with everyone with when they will be shipped out.

Cons: None

Comments: I would definitely commission one from her again.

Final Grade: A+

Name of Commissioner: NekoMimiChan

Website/C.com gallery: http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/m75220/

Character commissioned and series/video game (please include if this was the entire costume, just a jacket, prop, accessory, wig, etc.): Roy from Fire Emblem: Fuuin no Tsurugi (Sword only)

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1386956/

Timeline (how long your order took to process): 2-3 weeks.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.: To begin with, my communication with NekoMimiChan was very good and effective. She PMed me, saying that she was willing to make the sword for me, and I accepted. She updated me on the sword whenever there was progress to be shown. She even made sure that it was safe when on the arrival to my house.

Pros: Good detail and it was at the length that I had requested.

Cons: If I were to think of anything, the sword is a bit heavy and the sword's hilt guard could have spread out a bit more.

Comments: Despite the cons, I really like the job that was done with the sword. I would really do business with her in the future if ever needed. So I give her my thanks.

Final Grade: A

Name of Commissioner: Cosplay1.com ~ Ajie Nugroho
Website/C.com gallery: http://cosplay1.com/gallery.php?category=cosplay
Character commissioned: Aya Matsuura, Jpop singer in her Ne~e PV. The whole Dress, Arm Band and Hat.
Links to picture(s): http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/102543/
Timeline: My due date was March 11th. I believe she started working on it around December 1st and I received it January 24th way faster then I expected<3 that was great.

Pros and cons:
I already did one commission from Cosplay1 and I loved it! So I went to her for making this dress. The dress turned out fabulous the material is soft and very comfy to wear and looks gorgeous I love how it looks silky-ish. ^.^ When I first commissioned from her I found it strange that she wanted pictures of yourself for measurements but makes sense to me now because the dress fits perfectly.
She was very accurate on details, tho the only con I had was on part of the dress were it hangs down in the front and back she used the same clear silk like material when it was supposed to be solid with two flowers on it.
Tho it's not that big of a deal I still love the dress cannot wait to wear it!

Final Grade: A+

Name of Commissioner: Dream Angels

Website/C.com gallery: http://www.dream-angels.net/

Character commissioned and series/video game: Jade, Tales of the Abyss

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: http://www.kishuku.com/cosplay/jade/jade5.jpg
http://www.kishuku.com/akon07/6jade.jpg

Timeline (how long your order took to process): Arrived the MORNING after my due date... made me late for the con.
Describe your Experience: I had heard of all the good reviews for this commissioner on cosplay.com, so I decided to give them a chance. I asked them about making Jade for me, and they told me they could make it for around $250 or so. I agree, and the costume was paid for right away.

After this, I never really heard anything from them. No progress updates, photos, not anything. When it got close to my due date, I e-mailed them a few times and was assured it would arrive on time. A week before my due date, I was beginning to get worried. Finally, the day BEFORE my due date, I e-mailed again, and was told they were trying to hurry in finishing my costume. They told me it would be shipped 24 hour express and arrive on the same day I was supposed to leave for the con. Not happy about being late to the con, I decided to sit home and wait.

Well, the costume arrived. The only problem was, it was in HORRIBLE condition. There was no kind of even simple lining on the military jacket, so it looked flimsy and cheap. No pockets in the jacket like there are in the reference picture. The entire outfit from head to foot was horribly wrinkled and covered in loose threads. In fact, there were loose threads EVERYWHERE, still attached to where they were sewing.

The gloves were too tight and didn't fit my hands (I later found out they used a trace of someone else's hand.... didn't even bother to ask for, you know...MINE) and not long enough for my arm. The boot covers ended up being leg covers instead, leaving the black boots I had gotten to be covered by the boot covers absolutely useless. The belt was supposed to have a pacman buckle... nowhere to be found (I had to rush-make my own before leaving). The black shirt was held together by flimsy velcro, apparently it was too much work to install a zipper.

The whole costume was jus a horrible, horrible mess. Absolutely nothing fit, not even the jacket, as it was too big and too long. A waste of $250, and they wouldn't even offer a refund. Such a sham. One of the worst experiences I've ever had with a commissioner. I was so ashamed of it I only wore it for 15 minutes at the con then never put it on again.

Final Grade: F-

Oh, and Rouko, the "pictures of your commissioned item" line is actually for pictures of the final product you received, not of reference images--though both in this instance would certainly be appropriate ^^

Ryouko, in my opinion, has every right to be mad. That costume looks like crap.
