Online J-Rock/Visual Kei Clothing Stores?

Hey there everyone. Not sure if this is the right forum to post in or anything, but..

I was just wondering if anybody knew of any good sites to buy clothing that would make a good JRock/Visual Kei (hope I'm using the term right) outfit for a con I'm going to in May.

Preferably clothing that would help me put together an outfit in the style of bands like Dir En Grey, the Gazette or Phantasmagoria.

As for price I'm not quite sure. 200$ max? Since I'm pretty sure I'm done growing I'd be able to wear it over and over again so it would be worth the money.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. =)

Edit: I'm male.

I haven't heard of any jrock/vk-only online clothing stores yet, but ebay is your friend in this case XD I've seen quite a few jrock/vk items on ebay, though I can't remember much about the price, I would say that most of them are rather reasonable, maybe $50-100 at most.

if you want band/mv specific clothing though, that's probably harder. The best bet is to make it yourself. Good luck and I look forward to your pics!

If only I had even the slightest sewing skills I would atempt to do so. But sadly I don't, so I'm taking the purchasing pre-made things way out. =P

fan plus friend takes commissions for specific costumes and has a good deal of replica street fashion clothes.

Also, h.NAOTO is opening an international online shop on December 1st.

The online stores that I know of that sell authentic jrock/v-kei clothing lines are ffmerchandise.com and eBay sellers named mu-ta and like6m9 (occasionally). You could also try using a japanese bidding service like celga and rinkya to bid on jrock/v-kei clothes through Yahoo Japan Auctions. I believe they also can order for you from stores that normally would not ship internationally and then ship it to you (such as closet child, h.naoto, putumayo, Algonquins, etc). Of course both the services have service fees and extra shipping fees to ship it to you also.

Really, you don't like their stuff? I think it's wonderful. It was one of the only decent visual kei websites I found. Well, I would personally recommend LoKisa(Lolita Kisama). Here's the link. http://www.lolita-kisama.com/main/

lolita kisama = lol

Also, making/altering things yourself is always an option.

Since you said you want things in the style of Dir en Grey, Gazette, and Phantasmagoria, I don't think Sexpot or h.NAOTO would be incredibly helpful...
all of their stuff is custom made and usually not very similar to the j-punk/street style stuff sold in the name brand stores.
