Is cosplayfu.co.uk/ trustworthy?
Full address http://www.cosplayfu.co.uk/

Has anyone used them before? How are they? Not having much luck with finding people to do my costume so these proffesional looking ones look like a good deal.

I've used the other one - uk.hellocosplay.com and I can say the cosplay was great (I picked up KH2 final form Sora and P4 Protagonist School Uniform), the School Uniform and Final Form pants that I got ended up losing a button and the pants from Final Form is scratched (you can't see it unless you really look at it closely).

So I wouldn't know about CosplayFu, I've heard good and bad things bout them and I was gonna consider buying two Digimon cosplays from there as well.

I've not had a problem with them before, although my measurements were a bit off. Certainly value for money.

I have read that some of the cosplays - i.e. Rapunzel cosplay one had measurements way off but none other has complained, most have said it's value for money.

I've bought from cosplayfu.com, assuming it's the same company. Quality is good and you get exactly what you see in the image. Along with Bodyline they're where I usually go to for cosplay outfits.

Honestly, the costumes I've bought from them are:
Canada - Good
K-On! uniform - Good
Madoka - VERY good
Chihiro - Good

You basically just get exactly what you see in the photo from them. Not absolutely amazing in most cases (they're mass produced and you can definitely tell that) and sometimes not 100% accurate (make sure you look closely at the image and compare it, I've learnt this lesson) but you do just get exactly what you see in the photo. Their Madoka is one of my favourite cosplays I own and they even threw in a free petticoat and socks they didn't mention.

I'd say they were on the good side of cosplay outfits that are mass produced. If you want something that doesn't have that mass produced feel though, you're probably going to have to use a commissioner.

Only problems I've had are that gloves tend to be a bit of a weird fit on me but I have weirdly proportioned hands.

It hardly matters with that site anymore. THey told me the standard front, back, and side pose I gave them of my character isn't enough. Plus the fact they cannot make the shoulder spikes stand up. Here's the costume http://s181.photobucket.com/user/KiyokaMakibi/media/Stuff/CostumeCommissionF2_zpsc9d2fe54.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0

Back to square friggin one again on trying to find someone! Any recommendations for people or sites let me know =S

Seriously, if someone recommends me a site or person and I get the cosplay is great condition I'll buy them a point at Ayacon xD

you'd best try where I'm getting my GokaiRed cosplay from - http://www.cosplayhouse.com

They accept commission requests where people send in a picture of said cosplay and they'd get back within several days with the cost etc.

here's the URL of the commission request part - http://www.cosplayhouse.com/commission-request-howto.html

and it's situated in California, so it won't be taking too long to create.

You could always ask around the forums here if anyone would be willing to make it as a commission for you?

I have only bought from them once.
I bought Leafa from Sword Art Online. Although I had to make some alterations to make it looks more like the original costumes (Nothings major, remove some lace and adjust a slit in the front of the dress and fix the jacket so it stays on better)
But this may of been because i was the first person to buy the cosplay so it was the first time being made.

I asked cosplayfu.co.uk for a commission and gave pics of the character but they only gave me a price not a picture of what it may or will look like...they said after I send payment they will make it and upload pics. Im sort of afraid if they won't make it right but I guess if they do mess up I can get my money back (hopefully).
P.s. not payed them just was asking different sites. I just don't want to oay out the wazoo for a sorta simple costume
