Hm, I actually was thinking of ordering from HelloCosplay because they had lots of good reviews, but I don't know if I want to now since I'm hearing mixed things from people.

I'm with every one else. I haven't bought any cosplays yet. But I'm an ebay junkie and have bought tons of other things on ebay for cheaper then retail, like lots of ps3 video games and I even bought a rare ps2 game for 20 bucks that normally if you find it in an old school video game store that specializes in old games runs about 35-45 dollars if not more.

Any way, only cosplay related thing I've bought from ebay was a wig. And they were having a sale so I got my wig dirt cheap and it's a quality wig. Like every one else has said so far look up commissioners or merchants on the review thread. Or if you check out an ebay cosplay store closely look at their pics to see if they've been photoshopped or if their pics use many different mannequins. Although I wouldn't recommend Cosplay House because I've heard lots of bad things about them and I almost ordered from them but didn't after hearing people's experiences and reading reviews. Just be smart and use common sense. Plus ebay covers your purchase and shipping if the person scams you. So I normally don't worry about it if I'm not completely sure about the ebay seller.

So yeah, just my little blurb there.

I bought my first two wigs off ebay and they were both awesome. Just make sure to investigate before buying. Like look at the commissioner list and grades . make sure no other seller has the same picture. thats a big red flag. Also take a good look at the pictures to check quality and and accuracy.

Ebay is a system sellers use. Not a seller in and of itself.

It can be abused like any other system... but it isn't inherently evil.

There's good and bad.

Just do your homework.

kirakatsukai > thanks a lot! >.< i think i'll opt more to milanoo to china new fashion then.
cause i have actually bought something from milanoo.. XD

as for cosplay commish/mandy, i haven really actually have any transaction with her yet. but i think she's a nice girl
it really doesn't matter to me where she ships her stuff from to me.
if it's international, she would charge me international fee for it wouldn't it?
but she didn't and her stuff are at a reasonable price. that's my opinion. >.<

Ebay HAS got alot of rubbish sellers who steal photos, this is true. Hwoever sometimes there are some who really do have lovely work (such as cocosilverhk) who use their own photos. Always research, see if photos overlap with other sellers (it will mean one of em has stolen it) blurry bits where they have deleted someone else's watermark, limited photos (people who make them usually have multiple angles) and consistant backgrounds (stolen photos usually are from all over the place so their costume photos will never be the same background, i found) Feedback can be dodgy as alot of people don't really complain, but if you see any that say its not as photo, I would avoid seller.

But otherwise, why not?

I made the mistake of ordering a spiderman suit from Milanoo.com
it is the worst POS ever. there are missing web patterns, the spider logo looks like a squashed bug, and after paying extra for custom fit, it arrived 6 inches too long in the legs. emailed customer service over a week ago, and no response. DONT USE THESE GUYS!

He's just showing the difference of the costume he order off that website and putting that fake photo next to it. So it would be easy to see it besides using links.

Thanks for the warning Zombie, I was thinking of ordering a costume from them.

I almost purchased a Spiderman from them as well. Glad I didn't!

Milanoo also seems to be stealing some images from other mid-range Chinese and Japanese/Chinese costumers like:

http://coseyes.com/ and http://www.rakuten.co.jp/fujitatsu

I doubt anything they show is a costume they've actually made... most very cheap Chinese sites (especially those that seem to offer everything under the sun) only show images they've taken from elsewhere and intend to try and copy in the cheapest materials available upon your order.

Does anyone know anything about the cosplay.com users "Kirararin" and/or "Tia"? Both of them individually sent me quotes on a marketplace ad, but neither of them have reviews. Both of them have good work, but i'm not too sure on what to do, since neither of them have reviews at all.

I'm going to wait for more replies to my ads, of course. But has anyone commissioned either of these two before?
