Fake cosplay shop?
« on: October 28, 2009, 01:21:01 am »
Okay, I had found a Ranka cosplay I loved. But now I do not know who to buy it from.

These two different sights both have the same image, one it just edited color tone wise. How do I know which is the real image and which is the stolden one? a lot of the images for other cosplay are the same too.

A lot of the places that sell costumes have multiple sites. Cosplaymagic has two or three and use the same images. I have never ordered from either of those sites so I can't really help you too much =/

I don't buy costumes but I have heard of people buying from Hellocosplay with successful results. I've never even heard of the other one.
WHY DO THE FORUMS SUCK SO BAD?

I don't buy cosplay either, but if one is fake, it's probably the top link. The image at the bottom link looks more genuine to me.
Done: Blue Spirit (A:tLA), Sollux Captor (HS)
will do: Yukio (AnE), Robin (YJ), genderbent Nilus (MAOH), Dave and Signless (Homestuck); other things I'm forgetting

Well if you look closer at the outfits they're slightly different colors and the ribbon at the bottom dress of cosplaylove is orange and hellocosplay has red
I don't know about cosplaylove but I know hellocosplay is reliable cause my friends have ordered from it

The hellocosplay one only includes the Vest+Skirt. where the other includes the hair stuff and mic ribbon too. But if hellocosplay is the safer one, as it has been given good reviews so far, then I should prabably go with them.


Sugarlat: I thought they where different at first too. but if you look close, it is the same photo. The folds are in the excat same places. It's like they just used a photoshop thing and just twicked with the color layer thing a little.
