Milanoo. com is not a trustworthy site at all! They Argue with their costumers and also take FOREVER to ship. Literally, 40 days!! They also do not answer questions directly, they give general answers such as; "Does this cotume inclue *insert detail*" takes three days, "Hello! This costume includes everything listed" What?? So no, milanno is awful don't EVER use them.

I take the belt is unadjustable to fit your waist? Ahh I hope this all comes out well. Hellocosplay mentioned that the costume only comes with "Cloak + Shirt + Skirt + Belt" did they include gloves in your order too? Because When I was searching the web I found a Japan only cosplay website with the SAME Fate cosplay hellocosplay displays on theirs [same pictures and everything].

http://cospatio.com/detail/id/00000032599

In this listing they show a model wearing the same Fate cosplay as Hellocosplay is selling, but they include a few details that hellocosplay apparently doesn't inculde with your costume, Her arm band, and gloves.

I am confused @_@

Several parts of the costume (i.e. the connecting bits) Hello Cosplay used only velcro snap, which really aggravated me. And yes, the belt was non-adjustable. They included gloves even though it wasn't listed and it was like 4x my hand's size, which had me facepalming.

I wouldn't doubt if Hello Cosplay just took the photographs from Cospatio.

Hello Cosplay, cosunit, milanoo, alibaba' egg and sites like them often steal photos and then call them "models" or prototypes when asked. Essentially they use other people's work and then commission items to match on an individual basis by order. That's why often two different people will recieved two entirely different costumes when they ordered the same product from the same maker.

If you approach a cheap Chinese maker for a costume with a stolen photo, you're essentially asking them to replicate someone else's product. You will not recieve the product shown. It's dishonest and it sucks, but it's making them a lot of money.

Cospatio's costume is a designer product that sells for well over US $600.

You won't get that quality for $80-250 out of a Chinese factory.
Common sense needs to come into play here ^^
If it looks too good to be true and all that...

Well the good news is I'm getting a refund, the bad news is return shipping was 30 dollars. So there's 30 dollars I'm not getting back -_-.

Never again!

I ordered from Milanoo.com and was fairly disappointed. I ordered a http://www.milanoo.com/Naruto-Hyuga-...me-p11317.html <- Hinata Hyuuga costume and the sleeves were brown. BROWN, for God's sakes! I'll upload some pictures, but I was incredibly disappointed was embarrassed to wear it! The shipping was terrible. I ordered it in September through EMS and got it just in time for Halloween.

My costume came in the mail and I was very dissapointed...
Hellocosplay i've come to a conclusion is a hit with mainstream costumes (ie. kingdom hearts, d.gray-man, code geass) But a miss with less known titles (ie. mahou shoujo lyrical nanoha ect) They DO steal model pictures from other cosplay websites and attempt to make it look as you see. Sometimes they accomplish this, other times (like me) they fail at it completely. Just because I would never cosplay something mainstream, it's safe to say I will not buy from them again -__-

This is why I go to CosplayMagic when I can. Their costumes are done on their own models. It's obvious they're not stealing their photos. Though, their stuff isn't entirely always accurate, and the prices don't always make a lot of sense.

The price is tempting! But my "too good to be true" mentality is taking over, so I figured I would ask before buying. They DO seem to have good feedback...
I'm in the same boat. I've been thinking of purchasing from them but I don't know if their trust worthy. I wish they would have cosplayers wearing their costumes. It would clear things up a bit I think. Seeing is believing right? It doesn't help that I've seen their exact same pictures in many other Sailor Moon cosplay makers.

Commissioner within Europe?

Hi,

I don't think there is a thread about this already. But does anyone know some commissioners in Europe. I'm asking this because the shipping prices from the USA can be extremely high. If possible I would like to work with someone closeby like from France, UK, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium. If anyone knows anyone, please let me know :-)

Thanks,
Vicky

If you're looking for wigs, I believe Kukkii-san is in Germany?

No idea about costume/prop commissioners in Europe, though :/

I can't remember the name of this site!!!

There was a cosplay site that I know the costumes weren't so good at, but some of the other things were.
I was wondering if someone could help me figure this out.
The page had a white background with pink side and top panels. They sold cosplay, lolita, school uniforms, and maid outfits.
I'm also pretty sure it had cosplay in the name, but I could be wrong (and it's not cosplayhouse).
Can anyone help me by throwing ideas of what it might be on here?
