I've ordered from Fan Plus Friend before, their quality is good and their communication is great. I like that outfit, but I would probably order it in different colors, as-is it looks like a super classy version of the Joker.

Yeah that's my problem with the purple/green combo. I don't want someone mistaking me for the joker... I want the jacket in emerald green.

You can send them a question and ask if they can make the jacket in the color you want.

Yes old thread I know, but decided to bump it back up to anyone that might be wondering about Fan+Friend reviews...

I just ordered two costumes from them and will let you know the shipping and quality/fit with the costumes. I'll keep anyone interested, updated.

THIS is the dress I ordered. It came with the apron and bow. HERE is a good size view.

There's a slightly off spot on the skirt where the threads are different, and the dress was not lined and the inside collar has about 3 inches of fabric on the inside. The edges are sewn nicely and all so I am not sure if that's suppose to be that way or if it's something strange.

It took a little over 2 weeks to finish and I might have rushed them a little since I needed it by the first week of June and ordered the first day in July ^__^' heeeehhh...

Overall I'd given them an A/B+ for not only do I LOVE the dress, and did it stand up to three days in a row of a hot and crowded convention but they also overnight shipped it at NO cost to me.

I was told 3-5 days and it took barely 24 hours and arrived in an "Express Pac" mailer.

If I had the time I would have done custom sizing and requested the dress to be lined. But none of the little issues are anything major to me.

Also, the petticoat I used with my dress is NOT from them! I was a stupidhead and forgot to order the optional petticoat and bloomers offered with their Alice dress @__@' so I had to rush order a petti from amazon.com.
Loves it! It looks very flattering on you basically perfect. You're so good at cosplaying it.

Just thought I should point this out, but, isn't that Alois Trancy's outfit from Kuroshitsuji II?

That is indeed Alois Trancy's outfit from Monoshitsuji. Meaning the shorts are...well, short shorts/booty shorts.

You should probably go for pants at least knee length, and definately ask them about color alternatives if you aren't wanting to be called on wearing a cosplay.

Thanks for the assistance! They won't let me change the color though.

Oh well, I guess the search for my next awesome dandy outfit shall continue.

I purchased UN00002 (Dolly Gothic Lolita:Low Waist Basic Pannier for $29.99 in 2008. I love this petticoat. It's perfect for skirts/dresses that don't require a lot of extra poof. I typically wear this one with my Sweet Rococo Princess Skirt, Bodyline Spring/Summer JSK, and 1950s style JSK I made.

I purchased 1UN00002 (Cutie Gothic Lolita:Low Waist Heavy Puffy A-Shape Pannier) for $39.59 in 2010. I love this petticoat as well. It's uber full. I wear this under my bustle skirts (especially the one I made since it's of a heavier fabric) or when I wear layered skirts.

I purchased UN00003 (Gothic Lolita: Steel Prop Pannier*short*) for $17.59 in 2010. I didn't like this one much. The steel prop keeps coming apart, therefore mis-shaping the look. I had purchased this in hope to use it with my light petticoat for outfits that I liked with a lighter petticoat, but wanted to support it a bit more. I wore it once and never wore it again.

EDIT: After posting this, I found that they no longer have the first two petticoats listed on their site. I hope this is only temporary as those were the only petticoats that I really liked from them and I was planning on purchasing a black one in each type. So sad if they don't bring them back.

I once bought their "Hime Wig" in Chocolate brown and when it arrived it was really wine red... they gave me my money back when I shipped it back to them, but when it arrived they said they'd actually sent me the Chocolate colour instead of the Wine red, so there had actually been no mistake. Point being... their idea of Chocolate is more chestnut. XD

Anything I've ever had them make for me has been great, though.
