I am a cosplayer who has been in the game almost 13 years, and as such have been burned too many times to count. Usually I steer far away from ready made cosplay, but I have been seeing overwhelmingly positive reviews about this site and it’s cosplay, so I bit the bullet. I specifically ordered the size that would be nice and snug, especially around my waist, as it would be worn with a corset. After some mishaps on their end before shipping it out, it arrived. Boy howdy was I in for a treat. It was unnecessarily long in the torso, the legs were baggy and weirdly sewn, and the arms baggy as well. Despite this, the neck (when the suit was zipped up) made it impossible to breathe. After some more digging, I have found people who have had this same issue. It’s taken hours upon hours and once I took five (YES, FIVE) inches out of the crotch area, tailored the legs and arms, and literally ripped and reattached the pattern on the legs to be in the correct placement but it’s finally wearable in public.
This costume would be perfect for someone 5”10, but at 5”4, I’m calling this a biiiiig waste of resources. While it’s pretty, and sturdy, the base fabric is unflattering if you have anything less than a model body, and has zero stretch. My husband ordered a matching Thor, which has not arrived yet, so we’ll wait for that review.
