Feedback from Taruto! (CosplayIsland)

"I've been working with Shido since 2005 and she's come on leaps-and-bounds with costuming. She doesn't cosplay much herself so her work is highly underestimated but she's got some amazing skills and has helped me with so many of my own costumes. Her portfolio is small now, but I honestly can't recommend her enough."

Feedback from Draco Malfoy (CosplayIsland)

BIG MASSIVE THANKS TO SHIDO
Yes it has to be said. She is amazing! She entered the challenge of making me a commission, the Quidditch pads from the Harry Potter films, sheens and gloves and they look even better than the ones in the movies.
If any of you ever have a commission I would highly recommend her. Even dealing with private matters Shido has done them quickly and kept in contact.
THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH SHIDO I really truly appreciate your work for me.

Feedback from Rory

I have to give a huge thanks to Shido! I sent her a commission, and was really helpful through the lack of decent colour reference pictures that were available. The finished product was fantastic, colour scheme just as I imagined, and excellent quality.
I'd really recommend her to anyone wanting to commission any cosplay.

Feedback from Joe

I would just like to say an ENORMOUS thank you Shido!! She made me the waistcoat worn by Enjolras in the stage production of Les Miserables to my exact specifications. The detailing is AMAZING, the craftsmanship is spectacular and the whole piece is wonderful. For the price, it was incredibly good value, and she even shipped it out with next-day delivery to make sure it was ready. I could not be happier with the service provided or the garment made. THANK YOU
