Anybody know if the quality of CosplaySky.com costumes are any good, specifically the Obi-Wan Kenobi jedi costume? I read the reviews on their site, which are all positive, but i wanna know what the real experts here think of them.
I don't know anything about the real quality of their stuff but the Captain America First Avenger costume looks decent, but the Mask looks Terrible!
If they're anything like the other cosplay vendors on eBay then I'd say that their quality is probably somewhere in between a Rubie's costume and what someone here would make. Basically, better than a Rubie's costume but not as good what someone here could/would produce. Good if you're on a budget and don't care or need 100% accuracy down to the last stitch.
ive ordered a few things from cosplay sky. I would say that they are a bout 75-80% screen accurate with thier costumes the jackets have fited nicely, but the pants have always needed abit of work. the wait time from ordering to recieving has been about 2 weeks.
Does anyone have any GOOD pictures of the items bought from these guys though?
I got my Green Arrow costume from Cosplaysky. The quality of the material and stitching is fine, but the size was way off. I spent another $150 on alterations, and intend on doing further modifications to make it a little more accurate. This is the second suit I ordered online, the first was from Cosplaylove and it wasn't nearly as nice.
Wow, that actually does look pretty nice. Too bad they got the sizing wrong and even more too bad the cost to get it modified.
I'm really considering one of their 4th Doctors coats. I asked them about adding the missing button holes on the lapel and they said it would be no problem to add them. I also asked about making ALL pockets functional and they seemed to believe it was no problem. A coat isn't anywhere near as form fitting as that Green Arrow suit so I was hoping they wouldn't have much problem.
Anyone ever order a coat like the 4th Doctors from them?
I bought my Panty cosplay (from Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt) from them and it was incredible quality. Sizing was perfect for me except for the neck part - easy alteration, no big deal.
I'd say buy from them. They are good quality, fast, mostly accurate on sizes, and aren't connected to Milanoo/etc. at all.
I'm glad to see this thread. I've been looking at that site for a while wondering if their stuff was decent since their pricing isn't that bad.
I've been looking at the Enterprise jackets.
My only problem with Cosplaysky is that I talked too them about a 3rd Doctor smoking jacket. Well, money got tight and I couldn't do the commission but they put it in there store anyway. I'm ok with that, it's cool. What's not cool is that there advertising it being made out of Corduroy when it should be velvet. Friend of mine contacted them about it and they told him that too get it in Velvet they'd charge a "fabric Change" fee of like 20 bucks.
i have their Mad Hatter jacket and tie and while not totally SA they worked great! Sizing was good as well!
I too thought their Cap looked not bad at all.
Saw this the other day on a bmore radio stations website and I would bet money that this suit is a cosplaysky suit. looks decent if you ask me!

Saw some snazzy boots on there, might use those for my project
Got this Royal Manticoran Navy set up from them. ( Honor Harrington series by David Weber)
anybody have one of the jedi costumes?
Interesting, that actually looks pretty decent. Nice seam lines and fit seems good.
Yeah definitely post pics of CosplaySky stuff guys. I'm pretty much ready to order a 4th Doctor coat from them. I'm having them add all the button holes and asking for all pockets under the flaps to be functional and there to be inside pockets. I'm basing the measurements off a jacket I have but of course making theirs longer to the knees. I'll wind up adding all the extra buttons myself but...I really don't care. It's minor work.
Does anyone have there battlestar galactica costume? what do you think of it? Can you post pics?
I brought my sister the Um dress from Alice in Wonderland for Xmas, and have about an hr ago put in an order for the complete DK Joker outfit. Having looked at the dress I would say the quallity is excellent and the price extremely reasonable.
AI have the Imperial Officer uniform from the site. I received it very quickly and for the most part it fit well, the pants needed some work and I agree with an earlier comment about 75-80& accurate.
They are ok for what you get, if you are doing a TFA you will be modding it a ton regardless.
Yeah I still have to order from them. I want to try getting a 4th Doctor coat this year.
received my 6pcs wool trenchcoat TDK Joker outfit from cosplaysky today. I found the quallity to be very good for the price. The trousers were as well made as any pair of trousers I've brought of the high street. THe blazer, while slightly too short at the arms was also well made. The coat is made from a thin wool material, very similar to that of a blanket. But dispite the thin material, it hangs just like a proper coat. I say "like a proper coat" because it is after all a costume. The shirt has almost cardboard like cuffs and collar. I don't mean they have card in them, I just mean they keep their shape. The chain is a cheap plastic chain, but that doesn't really bother me. If I saw this same outfit in a shop window for £180 (the price I paid minus postage) I would consider it to be value for money. For those of you on a budget I would recommend cosplaysky, but to those who can afford it, I would recommend Magolia clothiers. As with any clothing item,the more expensive, the better the quallity. Will post detailed pics when I get a new camera

i have got several things from cosplaysky over the years. mostly doctor who stuff. they have a corduroy 10th doctor suit on the website, that was mine. i like corduroy. they also made me a sherlock holmes vest in green faux suede and i got the corduroy frock coat off them too. i also have their red smallville jacket and as someone who loves famous jackets and coats and owns several 10th doctor and a wolverine x1 and several indy jackets i think their smallville jacket is my favourite. the details were spot on and its as close to dressing like superman on a daily basis as one gets.
i got their obi wan kenobi costume for halloween last year, i was quite pleased with it, it is lacking in some details like nothing to keep the tunics closed or the tabbards on your shoulders, if i had to do it again i would ask for velcro there or something. the outer robe is what lets it down, it is a good size and what not, just a cheap polyester fabric that is quite shiny. the belt was good but not very adjustable, i ended up adding more velcro to it as well as sewing an inner belt to it that i could securely close with a cobra buckle seeing as their belt with just velcro wouldnt take the weight of my machine hilt.
personally i have used there stuff more for everyday wear than anything else. i have had numerous 10th doctor suits made, in various fabrics mostly faux suede and corduroy (it seems to be the most robust) and they are the only suits i wear now and i wear their guy ritchie sherlock coat often and the smallville jacket almost daily for the better part of 2 years now and no signs of wear. they hhave always been very accommodating of my requests and have done custom stuff that wasnt on their website.
i have nothing but praise for them
I love cosplaysky and want to get the Spiderman military jacket from the new film but im still waiting for them to sort out the hood :-)
