showcosplay.com scam or really good value
so I was searching for a costume and found this site its really good value but im about 80% sure its a scam.

Im going to look in to it more and possibly make a test purchase.

But I just wanted to put it up here and see if anyone knows anything or has anyone made an order or (hopefully not) been scammed by them

Meeeeeh, I don't want to make a decision either way. They might just have cheap list prices because they really are a wholesaler, but then I found this on their about page:

'Our Name
We are a high-tech resources trade company. Our name is ShowCosplay technology co.,Ltd. ShowCosplay means having a bright blue color of the sky on a sunny day. It is also the Microsoft cloud computing platform and the common role name for the Japanese animation. It means our innovative company always uses Internet technology to face the future with the smile as the bright sky and offer clients trusted products and service.'

... I mean it's barely even English and looks like it's an edited copy and paste from a different website.

The payment page under the about section also has broken images, which is a bit dodge. However, tons of Chinese sites manage to look dodgy and manage fine having said that.

If you intend on making a test purchase I suggest something like the Sailor Moon tiara, as it's £6.50 so not a massive loss if it turns out to be a bad investment.
