For those that don't know me that long yet: I do cosplay. Basically cosplay means dressing up as your favourite characters. Today, I'm reviewing CosplaySky, who were kind enough to sponsor me. I've wanted to cosplay Amaimon from Ao No Exorcist for over a year now, so it's thanks to them that I could finally do that!
Let's get to it.
Cosplaysky.ca is a Canadian shop, which specialises in .tailor made costume making, and they have been doing so for more than five years. The cosplays on their side are all made by their more than 30 tailors from China. This means that they ship from China, and you'll get the costume directly from their tailors there. So no middle party involved.
Communication and shipping
CosplaySky offers custom size cosplays, which is very convenient for me, as I'm tall and have a smaller waist and big hips. So all I had to do was give them my measurements, and they would make sure it would be a perfect fit. The communication apart from talking about the measurements went rather smoothly. They replied quickly and were very helpful. However, it seems English isn't their first language, as there were quite some grammar mistakes. But since I deal with a lot of China based companies, I didn't mind. I understood what they meant, and that's the most important thing to me.
After having placed my order, it took about three weeks for them to make the costume and for me to get it. So I think that's rather quick, considering it's a custom made item and considering the fact it had to be shipped from China. So I'm very happy with that.
I chose Amaimon from Ao No Exorcist, as I've been wanting to cosplay him for a long time.
The cosplay arrived in a large package, and was in multiple plastic layers. It was securely packed, so there was no damage whatsoever. It also came with a card that had my measurements on it.
The cosplay consists of a coat, a blouse, a waistcoat, pants, a tie, and a belt. The socks and arm sleeves weren't included, but I knew that from the beginning. So I went ahead and fixed something myself (only to find out later that the socks and arm sleeves aren't matching, but oh well). They were custom made, and they fit perfectly. The only advice that I could give people is to add 2cm to your measurements. Although they fit me perfectly, I would've liked a little extra space, because when I sit down the pants get a little tight. But other than that it's great! The quality is very high too, as the materials are quite thick and just look very neat. So I'm very impressed with that!
I'm very satisfied with this cosplay, and just the way everything was handled. The people of CosplaySky are very nice, the shipping was within my expectations, the sizing was done right and the cosplay looks amazing. So I'd give them a 10/10! I would definitely get a costume from them again.
