Name: apocalypse pony
website:http://www.apocalypse-pony.com/



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

.Hack//GU Kuhn Wig

Timeline (how long your order took to process): 3 Months

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.:

I had my Kuhn wig commissioned by apocalypse pony. Which was a huge mistake. I should have just did it myself. But I assumed, since it was an up-do, that I would have too much trouble with it. So I wanted some one experienced, to do an excellent professional job. Her website was good so I thought I'd give her a try. I gave her three months for the task and it didn't even look like she spent two hours on it. I payed her 120.00, for a professional wig.. what I got was crap. She used hot glue on the pony tail.. and yarn ( some times the yarn and glue where stuck together).and it was all miss matched when it came to the color colored. It was ratty looking, the bangs weren't even done up and she hacked the hell out of the back of the wig. I asked for my money back and only got 25.00.

*sighs* I spent an extra 30.00 dollars to fix it..and I was able to save it..sorta..

Final grade:d- ..what a disappointment.

I believe I caught everyone in that last update ^^ The K section had to be moved down as the first post had its limit broken again, so if anyone believes I might have dropped their review or missed them altogether it would be splendid if they could give it a quick look-over so we know everything is there.
Many thanks!

Name: Nugrosjp/cosplay1/ Ajie Nugroho

Website: www.cosplay1.com email : labalaba_terbang@yahoo.com

Item purchased (please include quantity):
A full costume, yuki Nagato costume

Links: http://cosplay1.com/dtProduct.php?pId=132


Timeline (how long your order took to process):
About 55 days

Pros:
It is my 3rd time using their services and my 2nd this year. The costume is for my sister karaoke event on August. No doubt that they have perfect grade for everything, they have fast communication ( my email replied minimum before 24 hours), perfect fabric choices and the most important thing is they keep their promise regarding due date.

Cons:
My sister not the only one have that dress :LOL: nothing really..

Overall experience : I am satisfied. I am happy with how my sister costume looks and she also so excited wearing it. Prices were relatively not cheap but not to high for their quality of service. RECOMENDED COMMISSIONER

Overall Grade: A

Even if the quality was poor, I think an F is more for commissioners who never even sent items. A D- sounds more fair, since you actually got the item.

Name of Commissioner: Pipethree

Website/C.com gallery: www.pipethree.com

Character commissioned:
Katara
Zuko
Iroh
((Also Yue, but I don't have pics of her D: ))

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item:
Katara
Zuko
Iroh

Timeline (how long your order took to process): A couple of months, I believe? The order started with Katara and Zuko, then Yue got added on, then Iroh. XD It got longer as we went


Describe your Experience: The girl I corresponded with is a sweetheart, even through some IRL problems she was going through. This my (as well as my friends) first time comissioning, so we were all wary. Misuzu was very kind and we talked often. It was such a great experience!


Pros: They were very detail-oriented and one of their main things is that they make cosplays that are comfortable enough to be regular clothes. So true XD With the exception of Yue's insanely fluffy costume (because it would kill a normal person in Texas heat XD), all the outfits are nice enough to be normal clothes :3 They even got shoes for Iroh, even though he'd never told them his shoe size. They fit perfectly ;3. My costume (Katara) matches our Sokka's costume almost perfectly (she made hers). All the specifications we added (pockets, etc) were done with no hesitation.

Cons: Mmm... none, really. Aahh.. nope, can't think of anything X3

Comments: I'll definately be commissioning them again X3

Final Grade: A+

If you're curious, this is all of us in progress. Top row (l to r): Yue*, Zuko*, Sokka. Bottom row (l to r): Iroh*, Katara*, Toph

*indicates a comissioned costume.

Name of Merchant: Zhenna0036, A.K.A. Designer Wigs and Color Wigs

Website: http://stores.ebay.com/Designer-Wigs-and-Color-Wigs

Item purchased (please include quantity): One 51 inch long Copper Red wig with bangs.

http://i524.photobucket.com/albums/c...5/DSCF0916.jpg
http://i524.photobucket.com/albums/c...5/DSCF0917.jpg

Timeline (how long your order took to process):
Order placed July 4th, payment cleared July 9th, shipped July 10th, recieved July 31. Considering that it came from China, that's not bad.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments: I love this seller, their wigs are very good fiber quality. I purchased this wig to restyle for a Zelos Wilder cosplay. I love the color. The wig did tangle a little a bit, but that's to be expected from a 51 inch wig and a little sheen spray fixed that up quickly.

Final Grade: A+

Name of Merchant: MsTestament

Website: http://www.cosplay.com/marketplace/member.php?uid=97891

Item purchased (please include quantity): Inu Yasha

Links to picture(s) of your received item:
http://racheldesade.deviantart.com/a...-ball-89442857
http://racheldesade.deviantart.com/a...Yasha-89324596

Timeline (how long your order took to process): From payment to arrival, about a month and a half. We had talked all throughout May, then ordered it in early June, and got it the first week of July.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.: She is a fantastic commissioner. Communication is excellent, she was always quick to respond to emails. I received progress pictures during her work. And truthfully, I think she beat the deadline by a week. She's very organized, and got details from me of how i'd like this or that. The material she picked was perfect, it was very movable and breathable without having to be a cheap flimy material. The only con I would have against the costume, and it's even hard to call it a con, is that the sleeves didn't have the red ribbons already added. She provided the ribbon, and even made profissional quality slits, she didn't actually lace the ribbon in. But that's a minut thing that I did the day before the con. I would highly recomend her to anyone, and I'd defenently get her to do another costume for me.

Final Grade: A

Name of Commissioner: SeveredMuse

C.com gallery: http://www.cosplay.com/member/73110/

Website: http://cosplayfaery.webs.com/index.htm

Character commisioned and series: Butterfly Chii from Chobits (Manga)

Link(s) to picture(s) of your commissioned item:
(See Attachments)

Timeline: July 2008 - complete way before actual due date

Pros: I've had the most divine chance to get a second commission by this commissioner. Again, she was very quick with her work and it always gives me such thrills to know she is one of those commissioners out there that can and promise a job well done. We were off to a great start with talking about my second cosplay that I wanted to attempt at a anime con for the first time and she was always informing me of color of fabric she had chosen and that if I didn't like it I could change it without haste. Again, she proved to me that she knew her stuff and she was hard at work, keeping me up to date with progress reports and progress pictures. <3

Cons: Nothing

Comments: Again I highly reccomend Katherine for getting a cosplay commissioned. She really is such a nice person and ensures a cosplay that you will love. She knows how to make a deadline seem like a breeze and her consistency and work ethics show in everything she does. Without a shadow of doubt I once again have to say she's a commissioner worth inquiring a cosplay made. Again, if you are reading this I want to say thank you once again for always exceeding my expecations and maybe next year I will commission something else or reccomend you to others around me.

Thank you for the wonderful review, I'm actually blushing >w<. Sorry the dress looks a bit akward on the dummy. Can't wait to see you in it =^w^=

EDIT: Also I know that the bottom of the skirt and the top are two different colors, that was because when I took the picture I totally forgot to add the ribbon at the bottom @_@.

Wow, I'd like to apologize Saendie; I missed your original review altogether, and then missed your alteration as well. Very sorry!
The list has been updated appropriately, however, with your review Many thanks!

Name of Commissioner: Beckie

Website: http://www.becosplay.com

Character commissioned and series: Yoruichi (white flashback outfit, just the white dress part), Bleach

Link(s) to picture(s) of your commissioned item: (coming soon, will edit when I have them.)

Time line: - January 08' - July 08' (Long time line was due to me trying to make sure I wanted to do Yoruichi)

Pros: See comments

Cons: N/A

Comments: Beckie was patient, organized, and very quick with replies. I didn't give her many instructions on how I wanted Yoruichi to look and I really didn't need to as she did a fantastic job on her own. She put up with my many delays and got Yoruichi to me super quick. The dress is very well made, there isn't a stitch or seam out of place, I love the materials she chose and I love the way she made it. I did make some changes to the outfit, but they were only minor things that aren't visible and doesn't mess with what she originally created. All in all I had a wonderful commission experience with her and I highly recommend her to anyone for their future cosplay needs. I myself will be commissioning her again next year for one particular outfit I have in mind. Thanks Beckie!!! <3

Final Grade: A+
