When getting any cosplay fom any wholesale site like that (including ebay and such) there are some things you need to be aware of.
-No cosplay on these sites will be accurate, only semi accurate. This is because they don't actually have the licenses to legally reproduce cosplay's that are accurate.
-They all have the word "commission"..Don't be fooled by this word..It doesn't mean what they semm to think it means..They do not "commission: anything. What they do is take your measurements, and pick the sizes that match close enough and mix match them to make it so they aren't blatantly obviously sending you a "generic size from the chart"
-Most of the time their fabric choices are garbage. They will use the cheapest looking pleather where leather is suppose to be. Using pleather or vinyl is fine, but only when it's actually good quality and doesn't look like cheap plastic..And they will almost ALWAYS go for a poly'cotton blend for everything if they can. "Character wears denim jeans? Here's pants made of this other not jeans material." By the way, the material does not stretch whatsoever.
-And the worst one, there's no guarantee you will even get what you paid for. This can mean many things..Some people just never receive anything at all..Some don't recieve the right item, other's, like all my attempts at this kind of thing, will not get anything matching anywhere near the measurements they gave. But some get things just fine. If you happen to match close enough to the standard sizes they list, then you should be fine in that area. But the fact is, like above, regardless of what it SHOULD be made of, there's a good chance they will just use that poly/cotton blend..

Personally I would say try for a real commission from someone on here.

They are like any other mass producing cosplay shop online, honestly.
I don't think you buying from them would be a bad experience but as it was mentioned, they aren't going to "commission" anything for you and you may have to make your own alterations to the costume once you get it but that tends to happen when you order from places like CosplayFly!

Honestly, I wouldn't commission from someone here when CosplayFly isn't a bad shop to buy from, I've not seen any bad reviews but it all depends on how skeptical you want to be about this, their prices aren't outrageously expensive or anything!
I say buy from them and then let us know how it goes!
