Same wig, multiple different sites. Where to buy it from??

So this is the wig I want/need for my cosplay, there are a few different ones but this one looks by far like the best quality and I have seen a few good reviews on them. Only issue is, I've seen it on different sites so I want to know which is the best to buy it off of?

http://www.ecrater.com/p/13596442/ca...meilin-cosplay (this one is the cheapest)

http://www.sanbefall.com/cardcaptor-...wig_p2261.html (this is the maximum I am willing to spend, I just want to make sure I get it from the best site and it really does look like this!)

http://www.milanoo.com/Cardcaptor-Sa...ig-p12303.html (I have not heard the best things about this site?)

http://www.miccostumes.com/Cardcapto..._Wig_956p.html (Has good reviews)


Now the question is, where do you think I should order it from??

this isnt gonna help THAT much..but heres what i got.
ecrater, like ebay, can be hit and miss. so no telling what your gonna get..
never heard of the second one....but theres also no reviews that i can find ANYWHERE..so i cant say yes or no, but they look like a lot of those other rip off sites (milanoo, carrot-anime, etc.)
o speak of the devil..theres milanoo................
ive heard miccistumes was both good and bad, they are more of the kind of site you want to buy off of when looking for cosplay, as they are ONLYa cosplay site..things like milanoo and the like, arent. those sites sell a HUGE amount of different items, and shitty costumes is just part of their inventory, but i say miccostumes is probably the best of those, unless you can find a good one on ebay..

EDIT: nevermind ebay..they only have the same one..

Personally I think you could use Arda's Wigs for her style.
I think you should use
[Hansel in black as the base]
and then either
[Braid Bun x2 in Black]
or [url=http://arda-wigs.com/Hairbun.html][Hairbun x2 in Black]
or [url=http://arda-wigs.com/BraidedOdango.html][BraidedOdango x2 in Black]

and then either buying
[Short Wefts in black] And sowing them into the Hairbun/Braidbun/Braided Odango parts too look like ponytails.
or
[Long Pony Clip x1] and cutting it in to the length you want in order to make 2 ponytails out of it.

=] I hope this helped.

You have to realize though I am NOT a crafty person, that would take forever and end up costing a toon lol. I just want the one wig that is already put together, the only thing I want to have to get is the red ribbons lol. Which site out of those do you think would be the best to buy it from?

Right now I am leaning towards Miccostumes.com I have heard pretty good things about the site, and the wig even has good reviews on the site. What do you think?

If its the craft thing, then check the five wits

http://thefivewits.net/2011/10/apath...-angel-knives/
Try sending them a pm on this one. I know it comes with two ponytail and 2 buns that you can clip on the wig for any style you want. It could work for Meilin.

And there service is nice (bought wigs before) and there fast when it comes to orders. Plus its a US based wig seller so no need to spend much on international shipping.

But if your still leaning on the others go with Miccostumes because of the good reviews. Then again its your choice.

Yeah I won't go with Milanoo. E crater or miccostumes? The E crater one is the cheapest by far, but Miccostumes has reviews etc. E crater is like ebay I've been told? The ecrater seller only has a 53% feedback score...

May I just say...

I don't want to be a party poop. BUT miccostumes is a branch off Milanoo. As well, miccostumes just recently held a publicity competition for cosplay (a few months ago) giving away free costumes for cosplays with the most votes. As such the reviews can be skewed as winners may not have considered pricing in accordance with quality.

I don't know about the quality of wigs, but I must say, buyer beware... ^_^''

I actually just ordered the wig, I spent about $20 more than I needed but I got it at Ebay. That way, if something goes wrong I could at least get my money back vs saving $20 up front but possibly being screwed over the amount of wig in not being able to get a refund etc.

so I spent $74 for the wig from Ebay, but at least it is safer.
