Has anyone had good experience with Fanplusfriend?

They have 100% feedback on their ebay store(which is a plus)

but I'm still not sure if I should purchase kodona clothing from them or not.

Phwee~ Ok, I was wondering what everyones' opinion on this seller is? They seem new to selling costumes, and thus only have a couple -100% positive- feedback, but I searched all over Google and Yahoo for repeats of the pics of this costume and couldn't find anything, so I assume the watermarks are legit, but I wanted to see what people thought; especially after what happened with Alice and others. However, I am going to wait until a few months before I actually need the costume for more feedback to pop up.

If this turns out to be illegit, can someone reccommend a commissioner who can give me the same quality? ^__^;;

Oh my, that's the first ebay seller I've seen with so many Kuroshitsuji items. If this seller turns out to be legit, I will definitely check them out. But overall the quality doesn't look amazing.

IMO, you should just wait a bit until they have more feedback, that way there'll be more likely hood that someone can review them.

Unfortunatly, these ebayers make the costumes before you even buy it. When you order one they just go into their inventory and find one close to the specs you send them. Once they send it out and you acknowledge recieving it, they wash their hands of it and move on to the next. Ive never in 6 years known or heard of someone who was happy with what they recieved. My friends use cosplaymagic.com for theirs and they tend to be overall satisfied.

i wouldn't buy on e-bay unless i couldn't find the costume on any other sites. basically, e-bay is a last resort. just search on google and check random sites because some cosplay sites have costumes that others don't.

Yeah, I've never heard of someone getting a decent costume from eBay. I can also vouch for cosplaymagic.com.They're not the greatest costumes in the world, but they fit and are well made. They just all seem to be made of the same material (a sort of nylon, or maybe polyester blend, from what I've seen of them). Plus the delivery speeds are reasonable from the people I've spoken to.

I don't mean to sound like a republican newscast, but "with the way the economy is" why not support a local independent costume commissioner (local meaning from your own country) and purchase a costume from them instead of buying something from some random Chinese factory? I know several commissioners will work on a budget, but still make a quality piece Just my opinion

I didn't go through ebay but I did buy a costume from cosplaystation.ca and they basically outsource their work to China.

From only having 2 pictures of it they managed to commission me a really nice outfit. Their wigs however aren't the best when it comes to color but the qualities not bad.

I also have a friend who commissioned a No More Heroes cosplay through them and was really happy with it. They're not the cheapest cosplays and I can only vouch for the ones I've seen but it's defiantly something you can check out.

I see stolen pictures but then original ones? Or maybe it is just the person stealing more?
Any comments?

OwO

i also ordered a Nagis wig from the show Kannagi from solgoo and it's great!i'm not sure how to use the hooks 'cause i don't have to use them 'cause my head seems to be big. ;D
but i think you have to put the straps with hooks to the loops on the back of the wig.I'm not sure if it's the correct way to do it or does your wig even have the same type of loops as mine.
and i don't know that will the loops break as you use it.
i hope this helps a little.

Has anyone heard of 'Midnight Cognito'?

They don't have any posts or many pictures, but the pictures they do have are of the same person. Also, they have a website, www.midnightcognito.com, but it looks sort of underdeveloped. It's not on the commissioner review thread.

I live in Florida, so maybe I can see them in person, though they may be pretty far.
