Items: Haruhi summer uniform, full costume
Link: http://www.fan-store.net/servlet/the...-Haruhi/Detail
Timeline: I think less than a week from payment to completion, and two days shipping, even from China. VERY fast!!
Pros and Cons: I just couldn't believe how fast it was, yet the quality of the outfit is impressive. It fits pretty well. One weird thing though. They forgot the red ribbon that attaches to the front of the shirt. Seems like an odd thing to forget. They also sent me the arm band even though I said I didn't want it.
UPDATE: I emailed them asking about the red ribbon, and never got a response. It wasn't a big deal, I put my own ribbon on, but now I know to be careful about communication with these guys. I think when I said I didn't want the red arm band, they thought I meant the ribbon.
Final Grade: B+

Forgot the same thing on mine too. XD Lol. Just ask them about it, and they'll send it to you.

Name of Commissioner: DizzyLizzy
Website:http://lizzy.agentsofcosplay.com/gallery/main.php
Character:Cirucci Thunderwitch (wig and hollow mask clip-on)
Pictures:http://lizzy.agentsofcosplay.com/gal.../wigs/cirucci/
Timeline: I asked her for the commission around end of june/ beginning of july. She was stacked up with a ton of other comissiones, but somehow was able to get the wig to at the beginning of august! so no more than a month! i was VERY happy!!
Experience: I have worked with Lizzy before on a costume of yoruichi and was extremly pleased with it! (its a con favorite XD) So when i decided that i needed a customized wig for a great price and excellent stylist, i called on Lizzy~

She has alway been very good with communication~ letting me know when she ordered the wig, when it arrived, and then plenty of progress shots to make sure that she was doing what i had asked, and she went above and beyond! The wig came with a hand written note as well as apple scented bath salt and instructions on how to care for my new wig! Great job Lizzy~<3

Thank you Lizzy! i hope to commission from you soon~
Grade: A+++++++

Timeline: Approx. 2 weeks

Pros:
- So comfy!
- Very accurate to original design
- detachable pin
- did I mention how soft and comfy it is?!?

Cons:
- the colour of the hat is a little darker than the original design
- the pin had some minor scratches on it

Misc. Great communication, if you have any questions, Mu will answer them pronto. There was a bit of a delay and she let me know quickly. She even spent her own money expediting the shipment!

Final Grade: A.
Thank you Mu Empire for my cute hat!

Character commissioned and series/video game
Team Fortress 2: BLU Engineer patches

http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1482691/

Timeline
A few weeks to a month. All I remember is that I got it on time.

Experience
I was looking for a someone to make patches for my engineer costume and The Hag offered to make them at a reasonable price. Communication was excellent and she responded to my emails in a timely fashion. She was very patient and professional. I asked for a the wrench in the design to be light blue, so she sampled my patch in different colors and presented them to me, clearly explaining the differences between colors with pictures. After a consensus had been reached, she created my patches in a timely manner.

Final Grade: A+

Name of Commissioner:
The Hag

Website/C.com gallery:

Item commissioned: Hellsing patches (2)

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item

http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1530572/

Timeline:
I think it was about 2 weeks from payment to receving them in the mail.

Pros: she was very professional, fast, and friendly. The patches are top quality. I had heard of her through a friend who commissioned patches from her before. Her prices are reasonable, with normal shipping (envelope) included. I had a very great experience with her and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a custom patch.

Cons - none
Final Grade: A+

When I paid her on April 9th
http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y22...trade/lys2.jpg
I wrote a follow up e-mail on May 1st
http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y22...trade/lys3.jpg
Shown because of the time frame. I paid with the money directly in Paypal and it took... almost a month to clear? Suspicious...
http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y22...trade/lys4.jpg
Another follow-up e-mail on May 22nd, which was replied to with a generic, "okay, I'll send it" sort of message
http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y22...trade/lys5.jpg
June 22nd, next follow up e-mail. I had been out of town, and when I got back, there was still nothing. No reply to this e-mail until the 8th of July.
http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y22...trade/lys6.jpg
Finally, I get a reply. Notice the whole "within the next 2 days" line again. Also, the whole, "innocent" act. This is also the last e-mail reply I've gotten from her.
I had to finally track her Myspace down to contact her.
http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y22...rade/lysMy.jpg
Here's her promising to send the payment. And I haven't had contact with her sense. Again with that, shocked, surprised, innocent attitude.

Final Grade: F------ x 10. HORRIBLE little thief ='([/quote]

It was not necessary to quote her whole post, its too large. Next time, only quote on what you have to comment on.

I fixed it, but I don't see other people getting corrected on this I didn't want to mess up the post because I usually delete the wrong things and the post doesn't look like it should. I wish I were more comp-savy ^_^ But while you weren't mean to me (which I appreciate)and did give me a tip, it didn't have to sound like I did it on purpose.

Sorry that happened to you Hopefully something will get worked out or she'll get caught scamming others. It might not get your money back, but it'd give some satisfaction at least
