I have to agree there, when I stopped for a year for school, it was hard to restart becuase of all the scammers. But it is also becuase of the dishonest ones I have a general contract (which will be avialable for downloading and printing on my site very shortly)

I even went as far as have my sister who is a law student, look it over to make sure I had no loopholes.

Which also reminds me, for the commissioners, I am doing a pannel at ACen this year, Commissioning 101, if you want to be an additional pannelist, contribute information, etc, Please E-mail me at Yumeko.Sama@Gmail.com Subject Commissioning 101

This type of project really needs to be a partnership. The client needs to fully express his or her "vision" of the outfit to the commissioner. Likewise, the commissioner should listen to the client in addition to providing his or her expertise on the matter. If the client does not mention any preferences, the commissioner should ask, just so there isn't any surprises later.
I always email off TONS of pics with every angle, or make my own doll and send it showing every angle. Then I offer to send the fabric, and I let them know exactly what I want. Sometimes I feel like I'm annoying the person but it's the only way I can get something without surprises

They're the only person i've actually bought a cosplay from instead of making it myself...my Utena Otohori fuku. They do nice work, and are really fast. They are polite, just make sure, as i said with the other seller i mentioned, to measure EVERYTHING. The width of your shoulders, the legth of your torso, arms, circumference of arms...i'm not kidding. Bust/waist/hips don't get it. But yes, they're good, honest, quality work. Making your own is really more fun though ^_^

I was seriously considering going after them for fraud at one point.
Oh my! I know this person! She is a regular at a lot of the cons I go to, and she's recently been promoting her work quite a lot. I don't know if there's anything I can do to help you, but please PM me if you'd like me to do some investigating?

If you can.... get a contract drawn up between you and the commissioner..if they don't have one...you should draw one up with the terms and conditions and ask them if they would agree to it.

Though personally I think any commissioner worth their salt would draw one up that way if either of you tries to scam the other one there's written proof and helloooooo civil court!

I've actually drawn up one in case I ever take commisions that covers things from what I can and can't do to around how much it'll cost ...feel free to look it over and borrow parts of it if you like.

Also if you can think of things that I should add/take out let me know as well!

Ooh, that's a good idea. And here's the places commissioners want measurements for.

(Hopfully it'll be downloadable for you guys o.o)

I commissioned my Edward Elric and a Military Uniform from them. They do great work and get it out fast.

thats a pretty sad stories i hear from this evil people/
the only time i ask to buy a costume was the misato from evagelion, who its a member at ebay name by honestchina. she does great work, and the costume came in excellent shape, size and the way i wanted. ^^ so there are good ones, just that be sure to ask lots of questions.

i did like, when exactly can i have the costume made? what type of material you use? any references like help from people, um skill? and so on. not wrong to ask questions but it also limits the choices of choosing a right person, and always when buying stuff from ebay check their feedback. if you happen to notice a negative feedback, it might be best if you avoid them.

Are you sure you're not talking about HonestDragonChina? She's no longer a registered member at ebay, which always sets off alarms with me.
