Question A good idea to buy a costume?

So I'm new to cosplaying and I was thinking of cosplaying as Anti-Sora. I found a site that had a cosplaying costume (save shoes, eyes, and wig). Here's the like to the costume in case:

Would buying it be a good idea (assuming I was able to get $100) or not so good?

NOOO!!! Do NOT buy from their..They are the number one site on the "do not buy from" list ever....There are ZERO good sora cosplays online..If you HAVE to buy it online, I would suggest trying ebay..But look for the ones that have a top rated seller ribbon..Other then that, I say get a commission..You can look at the marketplace forum (but don't post yet, you need to wait) and click on the "commissioners for hire" forum, then look at the different commissioners and start PMing them and asking for prices..They will be WAY over $100 though, just fair warning..You probably won't get away with anything under $300, but it's well worth it for a cosplay WAY better then anything you will ever see on a site..

Well, in all honesty, that depends on what YOU think..Every single cosplay for sora online are not accurate..There are usually TONS of things wrong..Take this:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kingdom-Hear...em3f1f96 068b
Look at that, they have a picture of the character RIGHT NEXT TO IT!! Yet they still got the colors off, and they didn't even use the correct decals..They did like a mix match of wisdom and anti..Because they make them for little to nothing on the day, and could care less about making something that actually LOOKS good, much less care about the customer wanting something that's accurate. Also, most ebay and cosplay sites steal pictures..

They steal photos from other web sites, fake their own product reviews (though many of them are obvious), do not allow negative reviews to be posted on their site, and the stuff is TERRIBLE quality, if you even get it at all.

Milanoo has a rating of "F" with the Better Business Bureau, which is a nonprofit organization that has been collecting and providing business reviews since 1912. They are highly reputable (if you haven't already heard of them, your parents probably have) and they would not give them that rating without reason.

Here are some horror stories of people getting ripped off if you still don't believe me.

If it's helpful here's a list of shops to avoid.
