So I came across a lolita ball gown that I want to buy on a website called cosplaybuy.com, but I have not seen many reviews for this site and I don't know if this site is reliable. When I searched around, I found the same dress on hellocosplay.com(though it doesn't have the same colour on this site) and lightinthebox.com. The fact that the description is worded exactly the same on cosplaybuy.com and hellocosplay.com makes me even more hesitant to buy from either site (I've also seen some bad reviews about hellocosplay), and I have never heard of lightinthebox.com, so I don't know how reliable it is. So I am wondering, has anyone bought any cosplay costumes from cosplaybuy.com or lightinthebox.com? Do the costumes come out alright? Which one of these three sites is the most reliable (in other words, which site will be least likely to mess up the dress)?

This is the dress that I am looking at:
http://www.cosplaybuy.com/southern-belle-satin-lolita-ball-gown-prom-purple-dress-p-3634.html

http://www.lightinthebox.com/sleeveless-floor-length-purple-satin-aristocrat-lolita-dress_p477791.html

http://www.hellocosplay.com/southern-belle-satin-lolita-ball-gown-prom-red-dress-p-3187.html (The colour is different but I can change the colour)

I want to wear this for prom so I really want this to turn out alright, but I really don't know what to do now!! >_< Thanks in advance!

I wouldn't buy that dress from any of those sites. It's made of cheap cosplay satin, and getting it from a cosplay website is probably not going to turn out well. It's bound to be terrible quality. Try finding something here instead? http://www.fanplusfriend.com/servlet/the-New-Arrivals/Categories

the first two are like milanoo, sites that buy and resell, plus they tend to have some stolen pics. hellocosplay is just ok. not a fav

i haven't ordered clothes or wigs from lightinthebox
BUT their props (my friend got a sword for Shura from Ao no Exorcist) are very well made!

Those photos appear to be stolen from Victorian Choice...
