I've bought costume and wig from miccostume.com, it's not a milanoo shop, like www.overstockart.com is not a overstock.com shop as well.

They seem to use gabardine (a common cosplay fabric) for almost EVERYTHING, even when it makes the outfit suffer in quality. I suppose this would be okay if you choose to buy an outfit like Len Kagamine's, but if you're going for anything like Ciel from Black Butler then I'd look elsewhere. I notce that they also use satin on some outfits, and while it's fairly cheap, satin is... well, it just looks bad most of the time, and it appears SO shiny.

Long story short, I wouldn't buy from them if I were you. XD

From personal experience, here's the alternatives that I can reccommend:

FM-Anime: It takes a long time to get your costume, but they do excellent work, and have wigs of very good quality. Besides slow shipping, the only other con is that shipping costs are rather high, but it's worth it for quality. They have a lo of outfits in their catalog, but they also take commissions, and reply within 4 business days. They are easy to work with, and will give you a list of materials and a price quote when you ask. Their pictures are 100%theirs.

Cosplayflying: I bought a Shiemi Moriyama cosplay from their ebay store, and I received it in the mail just under two weeks later. It's also of great quality, and everything is exactly what was in the picture. Their pictures are 100% theirs. I got a wig with the costume, and it's very soft. It's not the highest of quality (it shed a few hairs when I first opened the package, but has stopped since), but it's good enough. I'm not sure if they take commissions; you can always message them and ask.

some costumes, wigs and other accessories photos are from other shops ln taobao.com actually.

It seems like one of those Hit and Miss sites..I've see ppl with stuff from them and its good sometimes but bad other time. It really depends on your thoughts on quality and what you can afford.. Pay a low price expect to get something low end. I'd use this site as its prices are within the range of what i can afford

Don't ever commission them, they are on the blacklist.

review/any expericences with count Aka?

So I usually have a commissioner that I trust very much and absolutely adore, but she's booked for the next while and I'm very weary of trusting commissioners now after this other experience with somebody else.
Anyways, has anybody commissioned anything from count Aka? I'm really nervous because they live outside of North America.

Also, if you could give me details about why or why not to go through with this, it'd be very much appreciated.

Anyone ever bought this?

http://www.milanoo.com/Cotton-Black-...ss-p13028.html

I've been having my eye on this particular outfit for a while. Problem is I don't trust Milanoo and all the other sites I've seen with this costume look skeptical. Have any of you bought this from Milanoo or whatever? Do you know anybody who has custom made this before? What should I expect if you have bought this before? I'm really set on getting this exact design.

M*lanoo is a no-no.

Here's a well-documented reason why:
http://egl.livejournal.com/14481128....read=308688872

There's a link to a blog post somewhere in the comments that lists various of M*lanoo's storefronts as well as a few other scammers.

a link to a review.

In my opinion, if your unsure about doing, don't do it. Usually a gut feeling is always right

anne Jo on Ebay?

Hi, I'm looking to cosplay for the first time and I wanted to know if anyone has ordered from anne Jo on Ebay before?

I'm looking to get this Belarus cosplay dress: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/prod...525775135.html

The seller has good reviews but I just wanted to verify. I'm very wary of getting scammed.

Also, has anyone ordered a custom sized cosplay from anne Jo before?

Thanks!!
