For just the coat it could be believable, but my general rule of thumb is that if a costume isn't a VERY simple design (which Tao is not imo) and costs under $100 AND it's a commission (which should factor in the commissioner's labor costs on top of materials), it's too good to be true.
I see. Thanks for your opinion Kitsoru. If you put it that way, then it is too good to be true because she is including everything I asked for (tail, claws, braids, jacket, mask, etc). I guess I will have to keep looking. Just curiously, how much would you charge if you were to do this costume for me, with labor and materials factored in?

Haha, well I've only made Kokonoe who has a bit more "stuff" to her outfit than Tao, and Kokonoe cost me about $200 to make- so use that as a frame of reference, I guess? Just off the top of my head I'd put Tao in the range of about 130-150, maybe- due to lack of full wig, only about 3 yards of fabric needed for the main bit of the coat (though lots of notions including a custom zipper, and things like sintra for the claws and fur for the tail, then you think about whether you want the mask lit up and.. yeah), but I think labor could vary widely.

Cosplay house wigs

I am planning to cosplay as Ryoko from Tenchi Muyo and i have the costume but not the wig. I looked on cosplayhouse.com and found the wig yet it only shows the anime pic. i was wondering if anyone knew if their wigs were accurate or should i look somewhere else?

Can anyone tell me anything about Cosummit?

I've already checked the other forum and not found anything. I'm considering buying a costume from them. It's one I haven't seen anywhere else but on some (very) cheap Chinese sites that I don't trust very much (due to a few bad experiences). Their images seem to be of a different, higher quality costume... but the price is also higher. I'd really like to hear if anyone else has experience with them.

Thanks!

...its just so pretty QAQ
and i can't sew (my friend can so if it comes down to it, we'll prolly just prolly attempt to make it ourselves... though that's not a good idea...)
