I am far too terrible at sewing to make Ciel's outfit. But I really wanna cosplay him. Where could I buy it that it's cheap but good quality? I was thinking Hellocosplay.... If not where can I commission one?

Check on the Commission Reviews thread to see what people say about Hellocosplay. And if you want a commission that is custom fit, you might want to hit up a personal commissioner instead of a sight that has stocked, basic sized costumes. If you do a personalized commission, just know it will cost more because of the special fitting and time that will go into it. Few of Ciel's costumes could fall into the cheaper end of the spectrum, but they can be done for a reasonable price. I think when I made my friend's Ciel costume she spent about $150 or so on all the materials, but I didn't charge her for the nearly 50 hours it took to make all of it since she's my friend. Commissioners will charge you for all those hours.

How do you commission here?

You go to the Marketplace on the Forums. You might want to have reference pictures of what costume you want so that commissioners will be able to give you quotes. Do you have a particular one in mind? Also, you will need to have a date you will need it by, basic measurements, that kind of thing.

I actually take commissions, so I will PM you and talk to you about it and what you might need so if you want to ask several commissioners for quotes and all.
