WARNING, THE FOLLOWING IS A GIANT WALL OF TEXT!!

To clarify, let me state, when I first found cosplay-costume just over a month ago, I, like I would assume the OP, googled something to the effect of "cosplay-costume.com reviews", which happened to bring me here to this thread.
After reading the thread and realizing that no one had yet posted saying they had actually bought something, I ultimately decided to buy one dress (the one for my sister) having originally planned to by 3 in total (2 for myself), as a sort of test the waters purchase.
When that "gamble" (paypal dispute system is pretty reliable from what I hear...) paid off, and the dress arrived in good condition, I simply remembered this thread, and on the off chance that the OP was still interested, I thought I would be a "Good Samaritan", and post a response.
Obviously, not already having an account having never used the site before, I was forced to make one first, hence why, as you stated, I had only set up the account that day, and only had one post.
If you don't want to believe me, then fair enough, at the end of the day I know
that if you choose not to use cosplay-costume then that's just your loss, not that really it matters, but I do find it somewhat disappointing that you would be so distrusting of someone just because they are new.
I doubt I'm going to actually post on this forum again any time soon, just like I only rarely post on the 80+ other forums (yes, I'm entirely serious, I just skimmed through FF4 password manager counting them) that I have accounts on, each with only a handful of posts, I just don't regularly bother with forums.
If more forums would adopt anon posting methods, then I wouldn't need to create so many accounts, but the fact is, I'm the type of person who occasionally reads forum posts found in results of a google search query, and if I have an opinion I feel is worth contributing, I will damn well create an account just for a one off use in order to do so, seriously, it takes me less than 30 seconds to fill in a registration form, submit it, and then verify the account through the email confirmation, if it wasn't for captcha codes, I could probably do it blindfolded!
