Name of Commissioner:
Sumia from Fire Emblem Awakening - I already made part of the dress, I wanted her to finish the rest of it (the bottom of the skirt, inserting a zipper, and adding lining.)

early February- end of March
Describe your Experience:
I contacted her at the end of January and we agreed on a price. I sent my measurements, dress, and other materials to her by February. After this, it was a struggle to keep contact with her. I remember it took me several frustrating emails just to get a progress photo from her. I even got a progress picture of a different commission at some point. Finally she finished the commission and sent me a picture. At this point, I was done and I just wanted her to send it to send it to me.
When I got the dress back, I was really disappointed. The skirt part she had done was messily done and looks awkward when worn as shown in my photos. Also I donít quite understand this since but the top stitch is a completely different color from the fabric. I took the dress to a friend of mine that makes her own cosplays and she encouraged me to write this review and get my money back.
On further inspection, my sister and I found that even some parts of the lining are not completely sewn in, the biggest part of this is near the zipper which is in one of the photos. What's the point of adding lining if it's not doing its job?
Speaking about getting my money back, that has been a struggle too. I messaged her and told her I was very unsatisfied with the commission and told her exactly what was wrong. I also sent her the photo and when she didnít respond, I filed a dispute with Paypal. She finally responds by denying my refund request and telling me that she sees nothing wrong with the item.
Final Grade: D
. Donít commission her. Ever. There are so many better commissioners out there.
