Ebay seller: Professional only

Has anyone ever purchased a wig from a china seller called Professional Only? They have a high feedback score, however I'm still concern that the quality of their wigs aren't that great unlike in their pictures. I'm looking to purchase this wig from them.

The quality is great. I got the blue-black wig from them for Simon (see gallery), and it's almost on par quality with the $70 wig I got from Cyperous.

They even included a couple hair clips that went with the wig color o.o;; Which I gave to my sister...

I bought this wig for a Zexion commission I recieved recently. It is actually a really well done wig if you need it for this specific style. The problem is the way the wefts are done it makes it akward to do any type of straight parts.

Here are some pics of what i'm talking about. pic 1 pic 2 pic 3 pic 4

Also I bought this wig for a friends Riku cosplay. To be honest I am REALLY dissapointed with what I ended up with. The top is really thick but the back makes up for that by being obscenely thin.

Here are some pics. pic 1 pic 2 pic 3 pic 4 pic 5

I purchased my Draco Malfoy wig from them, and it came out pretty good. Minor trimming aside. The back was a bit thin, but the hair fell tightly against the head so any mesh was hidden.

You can see the wig here: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=1215129

Sukunai Kitsune: O.O The way they wefted it does look awkard. I hope you can still use it though. I agree the Riku wig does look really thin in the back. I'm guess they don't spend much time trying to put enough hair in the back of their wigs... Thanks for sharing your experience.

Lucifer: Your Draco looks so smexy. x3

I have been shopping around for a few wigs lately. Im a newbie in the wig area so Im a bit lost but the wigs from professional only seem too good to be true, they are really cheap and look amazing @.@ So would anyone who has bought from them recommend them based on quality?

The one for Zexion should be fine, I just need to make sure I style it clumps and avoid any type of part. Also I've been coating the areas around the edge of the wig so it doesn't become glaringly obvious if one of those spots pop up. I may end up just repositioning one of the wefts if the front becomes a problem. Otherwise they fluffed up the roots enough to make it hard to notice. I had to fight with the fluff to get it smooth enough to sharpie dye. When I go to rinse and wash it, the fluff should be back in full force so it'll sit nicely.

I also brought the same wig for my friends Zexion cosplay - the wig itself is really nice.
