I'm trying to find a decent cosplay site for a Yuki Cross costume. My problem is I'm very skeptical of sites where the outfit is made in China (ie. Cosplayfu, Milanoo, etc). I would also like a site that allows you to use a credit card (not visa). If anyone can suggest a person who commissions stuff for a decent price or a cosplay site that makes things in the US that would be awesome!!!! Thanks for the help!

I'd suggest looking at sites like Etsy. For instance I did a search for a Yuki Cross cosplay and found this custom costume of the black outfit and this custom costume of the white outfit(from the same person). Since Etsy and sites like it are made for people to sell handmade items, you'll find people you can order it from who will make the costume to fit you specifically, and although the prices might be a little more than buying from some place like Milanoo, it will be more than worth it because you'll have direct contact with the person making it, it will be custom made for you, and it won't be a mass produced piece of crap - you can usually ensure that the person making it can be accurate to the character. Also, most sellers on Etsy can take credit card (from all, not just Visa) and paypal payments.

You're right to be skeptical of Milanoo. Take a look at the oh no Milanoo Tumblr. It's informative and hilarious.

Honestly, unless you do some research and are willing to put out a lot of money, cosplay sites aren't really the way to go. Most sites steal photos so you won't get what's pictured, and the ones that don't will be expensive for the most part. I recommend looking for a good commissioner. You can look at the commissioner review thread on cosplay.com, or I can recommend a couple.

The only place I buy costumes at is cosplaymagic if the costume looks fairly accurate. What i seen and gotten is the same and once i got my item in like 3-4 days so shipping is fast. Most costumes are around 125 I think. Just depends how accurate their version is since it can be off.

Again, the many faces of milanoo to stay away from: http://egl.livejourn...m/15911979.html

If you're still looking for something on such short notice, EBay with US Only filter on is a start. http://www.ebay.com/...ay&LH_PrefLoc=1

Thanks everyone! I ended up buying Yuki's white outfit from etsy. Someone was selling their slightly used one so it was much cheaper than most of the other sites I went to.
