    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    here are some photos of my cosplaysky stuff. it was pretty cloudy today and almost dark by the time i got to take the pics so they have flash on im afraid.
    first up the obi wan costume. didnt wear the pants that came with it, never have, they are pretty light weight, like linen. im wearing coyote brown tru spec 247 combats, they look pretty good with it i think and have plenty of pockets. the inner tunic doesnt look right, its more green than brown and doesnt have the right neck like the epiii costume. also i have attached velcro myself to keep the tunic closed and to keep the tabards on my shoulders and on the back of the costume so i can put the obi on quicker and not have to adjust the tabards from behind. the belt is the one that came with, i added the food capsules and covertec and lightsaber of course. its my own saber, random sabers made it for me, a cross between kyle kartarn and obi wan kenobi's Zenith

    [​IMG]

    next up is my brown corduroy 10th doctor suit. i have 2 baron suits in the brown cotton and one magnoli and i think this is my favourite. obviously the baron suits look great but i am always afraid of wearing them and damaging them. this was meant to be a throw away and the corduroy seemed to be the ideal fabric. hard wearing and has stripes i guess, and has the lived in look the doctor would go for. im sure he has a corduroy suit somewhere

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    next is my sherlock waistcoat. i sent them a picture of the one robert downey jr wears in the first film, and told them i would like it in dark green suede since the real fabric is hard to find and expensive to reproduce, i like it but the collar is higher than i thought it would be

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    here is my 10th doctor in dark blue faux suede. i love the material used for the 10th doctor coat and thought it would look good as a suit, i have a brown one also, they look ok but are very thin and feel flimsy and more costumey so dont wear them often. plus they are like a sauna suit. something you cant see in the photo (sorry about that) is the half belt. they always put it too high, right in the middle of the back instead of at the top of the split in the back vent. so beware you need to make sure to ask them to lower the half belt if you order. more often than not i have forgot and i really hate the way it makes the jacket look, just doesnt look right

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    here is my smallville jacket, as i said i wear it almost everyday and have done for nearly 2 years. its probably my favourite jacket. it was very red when i got it, felt like looking at the surface of the sun, it was that bright kinda like the colour of the lining. i dyed it darker myself using dylon rosewood red i think. it darkened it down just enough. as you can see it has the right sleeve details that were on the original. dont think they show that on their photo on the website. i wish it had inside pockets but other than that its perfect

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    and last is my sherlock holmes coat, it sadly didnt have the back details as on the original, i think they have added those now. and its dark blue, i was expecting black but it looks so good now and is a good winter coat. gets quite a few compliments.

    Hi kenobibale. I also want to order the red and blue smallville jackets from cosplaysky. The pictures you have posted shows side pockets with zips. I do not think the original ones have zippered side pockets. Images on cosplaysky don't have side pockets with zips.

    Please help me. This is the only thing that's stopping me to buy from them.

    hey,

    if i remember correctly i requested the zippers on the side pockets. its been a few years so i cant remember exact. my friend has a red one too and his has red snap buttons on the sleeves and waist tabs yet mine were brass. go figure. also their website photo doesnt show the sleeve details, the "Y" seam details yet its present on the original and on my replica. my advice with cosplaysky is be very specific with what you want. they sometimes miss details even if they did it in previous ones. like with my doctor who suits i constantly have to tell them to lower the half belt to the right place. be specific with what you want, if you dont want zip pockets tell them that and from past experience they are very accommodating

    hope that helps
    any other questions feel free to shoot me a pm

    I'm a bit late, but yeah.

    I've ordered several times at cosplaysky, through their regular amd site amd through ebay (same costumes but the shipping costs are lower in ebay).
    I've orderes two BBC Sherlock coats, BBC Sherlock: Watson's jacket, Harry Potter: Hermiones Jacket, Alice in Wonderland's blue dress and Titanic: Rose' flying dress.

    They are very fast, the Sherlock coats are very good, so is Hermione's jacket. But the top of Alice's blue dress is much too short of you have * ;)
    And I don't like the cheap material of Watson's jacket.
    But hey, it's ok for that price.

    And I think about buying Mrs Lovett's costume from Sweeny Todd.
