- 4/5Review by Teresa
#1- the black boa that is shipped with it actually turned my arms green/blue. Which I didn't really mind because I wasn't wearing it, I bought long black gloves to go with it. So it didn't really bug me, and you can by a boa at any Party City so that wasn't a big deal but....
#2- the bust was 3.5 inches to large for me....
And I am curvy girl with a 40in bust and a 30 in waist
so I usually hem my cosplays anyway so they fit snug. I put my measurements in correctly and still had to take in the corset by basically 4 inches so it would just stay up. Luckily the top doesn't have any lining or boning so i just took it in, in the back where the lace was. I think the fact that it was bigger is 10x's BETTER than the costume being too small. If you need too its really easy to take it in with safety pins/ hem it yourself or bring it to someone who could do it for you.If it was too small.... well your shit out of luck So i find the fact that is was bigger better (It also gives you some leeway if you gain a few lbs lol (If you know how to do a simple stitch[Youtube videos are great for that] and how to take something in then you are good to go.
I LOVED THE DRESS!
I found the material to be exactly how it appears,
The red satin in the picture is the same one they send to you.
Also the red doesn't get on your skin after you wear it (dye doesn't rub off)
and the costume stayed together for three days. Which I wasn't expecting after three continual days of photo shoots and running around at AniNext, so that was a plus
The bottom of the dress is actually a skirt which is amazing! I wore shorts under it, that why i could just take the skirt on and off to drive. And this made it a million times easier to hem!!!
I would definitely use this website again. (Posted on 8/1/2015)
