I am about ready to get a cosplay costume however i would like the opionion of experienced cosplayers,
I am not worried about money but i would like a good cosplay uniform of my favorite character Naruto in the Sixth Hokage cosplay set.
Where would be my best cost effective place of aquiring this set. However, i dont want it to look cheap to the point it seems like falls apart when its touched or that it looks tacky. What should i look for and what should i avoid. I am willing to answer any questions if u want to ask me questions before you tell me what to look for.

When you're searching for vendors, be sure to check their ratings, especially for eBay and Amazon. A lot of vendors use the same stock photos, but the item they ship you may be completely different than what you expect, and if you're in a time crunch, that can be a cosplay killer. I make my stuff by hand, so I can't really recommend any vendors in particular, unless you're after specific parts (wigs, materials, etc).
