Japanese Cosplay Merchant Reviews

Japanese Cosplay Merchant Reviews

Nearly all of these reviews are hosted on other areas of the site ~ but especially relevant to those living in Japan. If you have one to share, please drop a link.

All shops/people listed do business in Japan.
If English support/ordering is available it has been noted. If not, transactions generally require some proficiency in Japanese. If you need help troubleshooting a site or ordering process, feel free to ask in this thread.

( ) - refer to the country from which the item is shipped, not necessarily the location where it is produced.

updated with reviews for Assist, Chara Star's, Fujitatsu, coscolle, bodyline, zephyr etc.

Also, if anyone else has a review or write-up to contribute... or even just a blurb saying you recommend a certain brand over another ~ I'm sure people would like to hear 2nd opinions :P

I added a couple of reviews a few weeks ago, though only for my purchases within the past one year. Some of them were for Japanese merchants:

Classe - http://www.cosplay.com/showpost.php?...postcount=2394
Lovepop (Classe dealer) - http://www.cosplay.com/showpost.php?...postcount=2395

Neither review is groundbreaking, since Classe had a great reputation already, and you wouldn't imagine their authorised dealers to be horrible either. That said, as I ordered through a shopping service, I didn't actually deal with them; I could only comment on the state of the products and the time it took to reach the shopping service's warehouse.

The shopping service I used was pricey... But I don't feel it's fair to make a relative or friend act as the middleman. I wish my mother's job takes her to Japan more often again :s
