I've never purchased a cosplay costume online before. I've usually just stuck to things I knew I was capable of making over fear of getting dishonestly advertised products. My friend and I wanted to cosplay Yu and Yosuke from Persona 4, but I don't think we'd be capable of making the jacket well enough. I went on Ebay to seek out someone that could, and I found a great looking jacket for it. The problem is there are multiple ebay sellers advertising the same outfit, using the same pictures.
These two seemed the most legitimate based off reviews.
There are so many stolen pictures used to advertise cosplay commissions online that I'm at a total loss with where to order from. Does anyone actually know if either of these sellers legitimately made the costume that is in the picture? They both have generally good reviews, but I would hate to order it and end up with a totally different style jacket. For people that buy cosplay costumes, props, etc. online... How do you usually check if a picture is accurate to the product your purchasing?
