In addition, the feedback on that one looks HIGHLY suspect.

here the review of this lolitababy

I don't think you understood my post at all.

This topic is not spam and shouldn't be in the spam forum. It's a informative topic on what commissioners people shouldn't do business with, etc.


It isn't promoting any websites, etc, or the sale of anything. It isn't "SPAM".

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has ordered from the following site and if so, what were their experiences with it? Was the quality decent, etc.? I might be interested in buying their Haruhi Suzumiya costume, but wanted to run by you guys first. I apologize if this shop has been previously brought up. Thanks in advance!

This is the first that I've heard of/seen that site. I agree with yamibakura03, e-mail them and ask about their services

Saw a whole mess load of comments about limebarb.com on the first 10 pages, but none in the last 10. Figured I'd post my thoughts as well.

I ordered a costume from her. Claus from last exile. Requested two versions, one in silk to use as PJs (came as cheap satin) and another in wool (was made from cotton), to wear at convention.

I drove to Chicago and met her at ACEN2006 in her hotel room for a personalized fitting. I wanted my sizes perfect. Figured no one could size for her costumes better than her.

5 months past my due date, $650 in the hole, I get back two cheap looking costumes sized so small I literally could not put the shirts on.

After another month of trying to email her, and digging up her phone number from her whois registration I finally got a "my pattern making software was bugged. Let me know which pieces didn't fit and I'll get you replacements".

Emailing twice weekly since August 2006 I've finally given up. It's the second time I've been scammed from a commissioner and by far the most expensive.

Please, PLEASE people. Stay FAR away from limebarb.com. While she's friendly enough in person, and the costumes she makes for herself and her close friends are AMAZING, her complete lack of professionalism is such a turn off, and her complete disregard for her customers wishes or schedules (which she agrees to before hand) make her the last person on the intarweb I'd ever do business with again.

Oh, and any legit costumers that read this and can do museum quality reproductions (I'm not asking for 100% perfection, but I am willing to pay for whatever your time costs to detail) e-mail me at industrialelf@gmail.com. I still haven't had a chance to cosplay after 2 years of trying to get costumes commisioned and I'm getting to old for dealing with scammers.

EDIT: I should note that I ordered a fuku from her to test her ordering abilities and skill. While not perfect it was done before she took my measurements and I chalked it up to personal error. I'm sure she's not a horrible person, and her work for herself is superb.

I am pretty sure costumes like those are mass produced somewhere and both the sites are using the manufacter's pictures. I see that all over on ebay too.

Does that mean it's ok to buy from them? Or not?
