As far as buying cosplay outfits on ebay...

Just a warning:
Be careful if its from Hong Kong.

Not to say that they're all bad, but there are a ton of sellers that just jack photographs from other cosplay websites and pretend that its their creations... especially from places like COSPA.

It says a lot when their photographs are not consistent.

Say a handful look professional while others are obviously done by an amateur. Also if an auction looks immediately whipped up with vague information... don't trust them.

A note to the Hong Kong issue. Customs is holding anything from that area for a while in the post office. I had a kimono that was shipped out on Dec. 16th and I just recieved it this Monday. The dealer said it would only take 15-20 days to deliever and it never came until this week.

Well that's custom's fault. When shiping to and from other countries things get delayed and also get lost. I sent a package of a Ragnorok game and it was supposed to arrive to the person in only a few days but it was lost in the mail. So it's all custom's fault. Once she mails it off, it's out of her hands and if the customer doesn't pay for Insurence on the item then the person that sold it is not responsible, the mail is.

I'm sorry it took so long though.

The best way IS with delivery confirmation AND insurance. The post office pretty much told me that insurance isn't trackable. And held a package at their facility for TWO WEEKS (for no reason, this was a domestic package too).

When it comes to Hong Kong I guess I had better experiences commissioning from sellers in that region than in the United States.

I got my Chii dress, probably the only thing that could have been better was if the skirt was wonder but I didn't mention it and I measure it wrong so my fault, I still love the dress too btw it's from CocosilverHK, came very fast and high quality.

I commissioned a Chidori school uniform from someone here in the states(since they where not a terrible seller I won't mention their name) but it took about 3 times as long and the outfit didn't fit at all.

I actually want to get a costume from Fanplusfriend on ebay because their work looks amazing.

i have. i bought the misato uniform from her and her works is excellent no problesm with here and came just as she told me. i needed it for oni-con so i bought it and ask if it will come in time before the con, she said it will and came true. the shipping usually is one week or two depends which one you choice and yup.

^^ hope that works and if your still unsure go check her feedbacks at ebay. always check their feedbacks and ask other custumers in case if you still doubt.

Ah, actually, feedbacks always don't count. This guy had perfect feedbacks when I first paid for the item. Then when I checked it several weeks after, he had 9! One including a missing item. Let alone, he didn't even offer insurance or tracking. Which kind of made me mad.

your welcome.

to kalajessta: thats why i also said to talk with the previous custumers what were their feedback and though about their items they bought. if its all good news then yes or send an email to the seller with questions, proof of work. and contracts are very good in case they failed to do their job

it lowers the chances of getting rob, becuase its always a gamble when it comes to this things. wish people were honest about their work and make others work look awful.

I bought a Inu-Yasha light sign off eBay, Around the begining of December, Didn't get hear till just about 1 1/2 week ago. if you could afford it, and are willing to take the risk, I'd ask for rush deliveary.

My boyfriend brought a Naruto costume from one of those Hong Kong sellers. He ordered the rush one and it came in one week. :3

Just remember, when it comes to customs there really isnt ANYTHING that can be done about how long they hold a package for, I worked for UPS for almost 3 years, and i know from experence how much of a pain customs can be

I definitely say stay away from Limebarb. After reading the link someone posted here earlier it sounds like many many people have had issues with her that completely mirror my own. Plain and simple, she doesn't meet deadlines, ignores emails and phone calls and tries to blame the customer when their deadlines aren't met. All these things happened to me and, judging from the link, to many other people as well. The quality of the product was not bad, but it certainly wasn't perfect and hardly worth the trouble she caused to get it, nor the price she charged.
