Being on this site for a few weeks I have picked up that buying a ghillie seems frowned upon as opposed to making one yourself. Well I have neither the money (i am 16, broke and jobless) or the skill needed to make my own and still, I would like a ghillie suit. My friend has a store-bought ghillie that his uncle (a hunter, not an airsofter ;) gave him and it works well I'd say. If I was going to buy a (woodland) ghillie suit, where could I get one that is cheap but won't make me look like a fool?

They just usually don't match your specific needs and some are made very quickly which makes randomness hard with a machine so it ends up being more like a brown ghillie with huge patches of green. It Kinda looks like a chocolate milk cow. Its up to you in the end though. I think ghilliesuits.com has some nice military ones, just stay away from the ones on evike.

Okay this doesn't make much sense to me. You say you don't have the money so..... you want to buy one? Correct me if I'm worng but isn't it cheaper to make your own ghillie suit vs. Buying one? And the skills required are rough job sewing gluing and tying and if you get caught up on somthing look at fuzzywolly's walkthrough/guide its awesome!

And please if I am wrong on any of this correct me please because I'm also about to start a ghillie suit so I would love to know if I've misunderstood the posts on here.

Generally, the ghillies you buy in store are too dark and thus can be seen more in vegetation. I once played with a guy who bought a ghillie and thought he couldn't be seen. It was easy enough to see him because his ghillie was too dark. If you make one you control how dark it is. As always, the choice is up to you.
