Try Vagabonds/Livewire in Auckland, I know they stock some ready-made costumes.

Otherwise, your best bet would be eBay or Taobao.

I recommend making it yourself if you can, or perhaps commissioning someone to do it for you. If you supply the materials, some commissioners will be more than happy to do it on the cheap for you.

Online you generally get what you pay for, which are cheap falling apart costumes that don't look very good at all.

As others have said, those prices are quite cheap for costumes, and the quality can often show if it's an online purchase that you can't look at in person. eBay or Taobao are common options, but you get what you pay for in terms of price.

If you're prepared to learn/sew you can make them yourself, or commission someone to do it for you. There are several 'good' commissioners around NZ, but for a custom made and fitted garment it will cost you considerably more than the prices you've indicated.

If you do decide to buy online definitely hunt around for reviews about the seller so you can see what other people have said about the quality aswell.
