Is this a good site?

http://www.tawniebow.com/
I really don't know anything about wigs, so when I saw her stuff in person it seemed pretty nice. I'd just like to know if anyone has any experience with this lady and her products.

No personal experience, but I will say that any website that has typos and doesn't look professional is a red flag. I wouldn't trust them. What wig are you looking for? We can make lots of good recommendations in this forum.

Going to second that the site looks sketchy.

Thirded. It doesn't look reliable or professional.

I would reccommend fm-Anime and Arda as substitutes.

It doesn't look very trustworthy. Try Arda wigs.

This is actually a really good site. The vendor is an amateur so her site isn't perfect but its a work in progress. I love the texture (mixed texture hiperlon, kannekylon, tokyolon) of her wigs much better than arda and they don't tangle as easily for the long ones. They are also very inexpensive for the quality that you are getting.

It is not a scam or anything like that she sells at a bunch of conventions on the east coast.. Anime Boston, Connecticon, Animaine, NYCC, AAC and many others.

You should really give her a chance, she's just starting as a vendor. Her website will get better I'm sure.
