Even if you're completely happy with yourself and your size, it can get bothersome and that's totally understandable. And I agree that an extra $100 for one size up from large is kind of outrageous.

If you're looking for commissioned pieces I highly recommend Fan Plus Friend, they offer 'standard sizes' already available as well as custom sizing (which if I recall is no extra cost, or very little). Going off their largest standard size for women it states the following:

Size USA 20
bust: 44in/112cm
waist: 36in/91cm
hips:46in/117cm

For reference of quality, this is the Alice in Wonderland cosplay I bought from them.
The costume included:
Dress
Apron
Velvet ribbon

I purchased the petticoat, tights, and shoes individually. This was also not custom sized and I believe was an American size 8.

They also have staff on Skype if you need to talk with them, if you're not sure if you're size would be available.
Thanks I will give them a try also I've noticed that I must be weird cause my measurement all state I'm a size 20 except for my waist which is bigger. Some of my stuff I got is like size 18 and up since I can wear almost anything size 18-24 and binding puts me at a nice 16 but I can't really breathe at that point lol

You're certainly not weird sizing! That's just how your body is and where weight is distributed (this is the case for anyone of any size) and that's just fine. I definitely do recommend them, but some of their pieces may not be the most accurate in terms of detail. A lot of it is gorgeous (check their lolita site, omg) but somethings just aren't quite there in terms of color choices or fabrics. I really am happy with my Alice cosplay from them though!

I honestly cannot remember, because for me I was actually given overnight shipping at no extra cost when I expressed concern that I wouldn't have it in time (my fault, not theirs). You might want to contact one of their staff on Skype to ask, if anyone is online at the time they're usernames will be on the side bar down near the bottom of that bar-but right now it doesn't look like anyones online. They have an FAQ which gives some general quotes here: http://store.prostores.com/fanplusfr...e/shipping.htm

It looks like they're doing a %40 off on shipping until July 30th, on average it looks like to the US,Canada and Australia it's around $18 for a fairly average weight costume shipment.

They also have an email address you can use, but I found it fairly slow and the company is based in Hong Kong so their English via email service is a little confusing. Their skype chats are much faster.

Also, here's their FAQ page: http://www.fanplusfriend.com/service....html#shipping

Just wonderin, has anyone ever had a good "best" friend that they loved sooo much (lika a sis/bro) But then spent more than 2 days with them and all of a sudden it's like "HOW AM I FRIENDS WITH THIS PERSON!?" I mean, during the day they seem awesome, cool, fun etc..but when u actually spend TIME with them (like more than 2 days is a good estimate) they become these weird, tempermental, spolied, or irritating person u dnt even reconize?
It makes me rethink my friend choices -_-

Kinda of.... one of my friends is great, but sometimes it's hard to spend a ton of time with her. She is just a lot to deal with for a lot of time.

Yes.

Often.

I've found that there are very few people I can enjoy extended periods of time with, Boyfriend pretty much being the one and only.

Insensitive assholes are insensitive :I

Meanwhile, just about the same thing..I am glad to help people if they need it. Really, I am. I'm glad to help my friends. But I am just about sick and tired of giving relationship advice and dragging people from the brink of suicide. I just feel like crumbling under the stress of it sometimes. I'm not a therapist, and I have my own problems which no one wants to listen to...
It's the price you pay when you're a good, reliable friend who listens, though :/

I'm just there to help them find someone better...I'm tired of just being help, a stepping stone, a toy, whatever you want to call it. I just want somebody to care for and be special to...But I'm not going to even try hoping that that happens any time soon. Every time I hope I just get shot down.

..Basically, teen drama/love angst mixed with depression, anxiety, and just a hint of paranoia about anyone I meet. It isn't nice.

I hate hayfever so much. The tablets I take don't even seem to work anymore.

Who gave plants permission to spray their germ cells everywhere anyway?

Pretty well the same here, and even then we have our mood spats (I don't think we've ever had what one could call a fight, but we've both been antsy enough with the other for some reason that we pretty much just went to seperate parts of the hours for a few hours.)
