My reviews aren't on this page as well. I don't do too many commissions these days but I wish to have my reviews in the list. That way people don't have to look in two threads for my reviews. Thank you.

Name of Commissioner: Hello Cosplay
Website/C.com gallery: http://www.hellocosplay.com/zaft-mal...iny-p-783.html
Character commissioned and series/video game: Gundam Seed ZAFT Red Elite Coat (OC)
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item n/a
Timeline (how long your order took to process) I ordered on the 10th and received about the 26th or so of January
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments: I have had bad costumes from this site. And this particular one seems to have just been bad. I ordered the costume in the past and it turned out bad.....SO I ordered this again for a friend who wanted to cosplay ZAFT and guilted me into doing this. So I thought "Maybe it won't turn out bad" How wrong I was. I sent in my custom measurements and they didn't even use them! Example: I said 37 for bust I got 35 inches. I said 32 for my waist got 28 inches said 34 inches for the jacket and got 28 inches. The hell doesn't end here. I tried to return it and sent them pictures of the bad costume trying to get my money back. That didn't work as I according to them did the pictures wrong so I just simply dropped it. The quality was good but the measurements they used were so off I couldn't wear it.
Final Grade: F

Sorry for bothering you further. I meant that these two entries

"Cyanna/Katie
Partial Costume A+"

and

"Katie/Plays With Strings/Cyanna
Partial Costume A+
Full Costume A+"

could somehow be combined under "Plays With String"?

If you think there might be some confusion with me handle you could put "see Plays With String" under the Cyanna entry. ^_^>

Timeline (how long your order took to process) Have not received item
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments. Paid half the cost Feb 5. Had good communication up until she sent me a picture of it almost done Feb 21st. Have not heard from her since despite me messaging her (I even tried tracking her down on Facebook and sent a message, and emailed her). I stupidly let the 45 days run out so I can't open a dispute, thank god I only paid half.

Thanks for doing this.

BTW, quite a number of my reviews are missing from the new list. I know I'm closed currently, but I'd still like them listed.

Thank you.

Character commissioned: Satsuki Kiryuin from Kill La Kill's dress
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item:
http://s638.photobucket.com/user/Tsu...93fda.jpg.html
Timeline:
Money sent: 12/23/13
She finished on 3/6/13
Received Satsuki: 3/12/13

So very quick for how complicated Satsuki was!
Pros:
She gave me a very good, fair price, which was great for me. I originally asked for her boots, too, but they were out of my budget so I just asked for the dress, which was exactly in my budget!
She also asked my opinion on different things like fabric, and what I would like the arm band to be made of (fabric or pleather, I chose pleather), she also asked what trim I would prefer on the euplats. I love it when commissioners ask my opinions on these things, I've worked with commissioners who do not, but she does!

After I received the costume and tried it on, I was blown away with how perfect it fits! I'm not even joking. It fits absolutely perfectly, it's tight like it should be, but it isn't unflattering at all! Actually, it's a very flattering dress, and makes me look thinner than I actually am, haha! I've never had a commissioned item fit so perfectly, so I give her super major, ultra props for that, because I know it's so hard to accomplish.

She's also very very nice! I'm one of those super paranoid girls, so I messaged as often as I let me self, but she never seemed bothered or annoyed, even when she didn't have any progress to show me. And she responded to my inquires fairly quickly.

Cons:
The deadline was set back a few days, which was totally fine, so was almost finished when my deadline rolled around, so I wasn't worried she wouldn't have it finished (I think what may have set her back, was there was a little fabric mishap, in which she ordered fabric but it came in off white, not just white, so she had to go get different fabric), but like I said, wasn't a big deal!

Final Grade: A+++++

I couldn't recommend Angie more! She's a dream, really! Satsuki is so perfect, I literally cannot wait to wear her!

Character commissioned and series/video game: Rapunzel's tiara from Tangled
Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item: [1] [2] [3]
Timeline (how long your order took to process) : I placed an order in September 2013 and received it in April 2014.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:

Yes, it was a mighty long wait and I had to push back my original plan to do Rapunzel with her tiara in December. This was due to (as claimed) the poor service of Italian shipping, which he used to order in the gem and crystals for the tiara. Regardless, he has been always friendly in his communication, and rushed through the construction time to ship the finished product to me asap.

I would love to order from him again, if only not the long wait time. The tiara is PERFECT and I adore it to bits.

Final grade: B+

Timeline: Contacted me on Feb. 9th, deadline was May 15th, received finished costume on April 9th finished way before my deadline.

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments: This was a cosplay outfit my sister had been wanting for a long time, Moosedoom contacted me on Feb. 9th, she was very kind, answered all my emails/questions on time. Kept me updated with the progress and showed me pictures whenever I asked. And finished way before our deadline which was May 15th. The outfit was high quality, and my sister loved it! Very pleased with her work and will work with her again!

Name of Commissioner: Repo!Z-addict (aka CosplayNekoHime)

Website/C.com gallery: None

Character Commissioned: Tiny Tina from Borderlands 2. I requested a commission of her dress, pants, sleeve, and pink apron with the bunny face on it.

Links to picture(s) of your commissioned item:

http://www.videogamesartwork.com/sit...as_tap ia.jpg


Timeline (how long your order took to process):

I put in a request for this cosplay back on February 26, 2014. I paid 60% of the total fee on March 4, 2014. I asked to have the costume completed by the first full week of May (anywhere between May 5-9). It is now April 7th and I have not received any proof of the costume and I have asked for a full refund and have not received it. I am writing this review to assist other cosplayers with making a decision to go with this commissioner or not.

Describe your Experience (Pros, Cons, Comments):

Pros:
Neko Hime was very friendly to work with and replied to my e-mail inquiries promptly. She also offered me a very reasonable price for the costume and even offered to throw in a ‘free wig’ with my order.

Cons:
I’d say the number one con I had with this commissioner was not receiving any updates on my costume and finally when I requested a full refund because my terms and deadlines were not met she became uncooperative and I am still waiting on my refund. Up front I set a few deadlines as to when I wanted to see pictures of fabric, materials, etc. and these were not met. Secondly I tried to schedule a Skype session with Neko Hime to review the costume and I never heard back from her. Lastly, I set a specific date and told the commissioner if I did not receive photographs of the cosplay progress I was going to ask for a full refund. This last deadline was not met so I politely asked for a refund and in return I received an e-mail listing off multiple complaints and excuses for not having the work completed as agreed upon. As of today, I have had to file a dispute through PayPal to try and get my money back because I have not heard from this commissioner since the beginning of April. A few days ago I escalated the dispute to a claim in order to have PayPal investigate and get back to me, as of this time Neko Hime has not responded to my dispute.

I do not want to get into any personal details on here, as I am trying to make this review as fair as possible in order to let others make their own judgments. At one point during our e-mail conversations, towards the end when I had asked for a refund, the commissioner admitted to not having a sewing machine or transportation to go out and purchase materials. I’d like to recommend not advertising your services to create cosplay costumes if you do not have the necessary tools needed to complete the job.

UPDATE: As of today, 4/25/14 PayPal ended the dispute and awarded me a full refund. YAY!
