Rise Kujikawa Persona 4

maxresdefault

This review is re-blogged from http://itsuki-chan.wix.com/.

Hi guys , today I’m going to do a review for Cosplay Sky UK . They sponsored my Rise Kujikawa cosplay but they sell costumes, wigs and accessories for cosplay and more over 😀 their store is very well stocked, especially for the costumes, and the quality of every item is really high; I also got a wig from them and I can guarantee you that all the products are amazing. The communication with the sponsor was super fast and they always answer me in a polite and helpful way, but I don’t know if the actual communication with the store is fast as the one I got with the sponsor 🙁

The package arrived without problems and in a short time ^^ Inside the shipping package the costume was protected by a regular sealed plastic bag. I have nothing in particular to say about this point.

The cosplay is perfect , it looks like the pictures shows in the website and is very detailed ! Also for what concern the embroidery and the school’s logo. I was quite concern about the skirt fabric, as you know Rise’s skirt has a pied de poul texture, so I was scared that the skirt could be make with a different pattern or a low quality fabric, but when the costume arrived I discovered that the skirt fabric was super lovely and with a perfect pied the poul texture ❤ I’m really happy because the cosplay respect the character uniform in every single detail and the sites images show faithfully the costume .

The costume parts are :

  • a white turtleneck shirt

  • the black uniform shirt

  • the skirt, a yellow tie/ribbon.

The dress arrived also with a pair of black stockings included, but they kept falling off so I used a pair of kneesocks I already have.

When you order your costume you can choose between  pre-established  size or a costume made costume, create to order with your body measurements 😀 this is a very useful option, and the costume will fit you perfectly.

Actually mine was a little bit too large on the black shirt so I think in future I’m going to fix it a bit ( but it’s not a great problem ). In future I think I’ll change the yellow ribbon fabric and I’ll sew a new one, this because the fabric used is super shiny and satined and I prefere a more matt look ( but this is just my personal taste and maybe this thing doesn’t bother you too much )

I’m really happy and satisfied of this costume, I wanted to cosplay Rise for so long and they gave me the opportunity to wear a lovely and detailed uniform ! I really recommend you to visit Cosplaysky UK ‘s store because you can find a lot of interesting cosplay stuff and very high quality products  😀 I have a really nice experience with them and I hope to collaborate again with them in future

MY EXPERIENCE:

I chose this costume because I was to curious to play as Ryuko. I know that this character was too “mainstream” in the cosplay world, but this costume from Cosplaysky UK is really one of the best I ever seen in the web and I give up to it. It also so comfortable and it needs only few editings in order to fitting and in order to looking like to the original one, as well as my punctiliousness wants.
The wig is very good: soft, thick and it can be edited in every style easily.
Cosplaysky UK is very fast in processing and shipping time and it has a very kind staff.

This is my first experience with the UK website, but immediately I feel in good communication with the seller.
I hope to keep this long-time sponsorship with Cosplaysky for other times!
Miyu ❤

Wow, I sure did take my time to write this post!

I deeply apologize for posting this so late, but I wanted to make sure to get some nice photos ready for this review!
This time I will be reviewing a wig and a costume from CosplaySky.
CosplaySky
Make sure to check their site out! They have many character props, wigs and costumes for anime, game and movie characters. There are a lot of costumes to choose from and most of them are amazing!
As for the costume I chose…

I chose Ryuko Matoi’s costume from Kill la Kill.
I knew she wasn’t going to suit me but I really like her so I wanted to give her a try.
(I might cosplay Nonon and Mako as well! I think they will be better.)
I also got Ryuko’s wig from them and you can find their links below!

Ryuko Matoi Costume
First of all, I think the price for this costume is very reasonable, considering that it came in high quality. The costume includes; The top, skirt, suspenders which are separate from the costume itself and gloves. Ryuko only wears one glove but I received two gloves. ; u ;
I also gave my measurements so the costume was custom-made and it fit me perfectly, I am very happy about that!! I usually have trouble with my costumes and end up adjusting them. Fabric is listed as uniform cloth and I think it is thick and suitable for this kind of a costume. Nothing is shiny about this costume, which is the biggest plus to this costume. I really hate shiny materials in cosplay costumes, unless the costume is supposed to be shiny.
I wasn’t notified when this costume was shipped out, so I’m not sure how long it took for it to get done, but I received the items in less than a month. You have no idea how awesome this is, I have had many bad experiences with other cosplay sites before because of this. ;___;
According to the site, the costume needs about 7-12 days to process and 3-7 days to arrive at your home. I’m really pleased with it~! ; u ;

I received the wigs from this site as well. Unlike it is shown, it arrived unstyled, which I think is a good thing, so I could style them according to my face proportions. I had a bit trouble and ended up making the wig too short for the character, but please forgive me ; u ;
Apart from my mistake, nothing was wrong with the wig. I found it high quality as well, because literally no hair fell out as I styled it. There were a lot of hair too, so the wig cap never showed up.
If you are curious about the photoshoot, I will be posting my photos from now on.
Enjoy!

This one is a blooper actually!
But Edniz really liked it so I wanted to publish it too. ; u ;
What do you think about the photos? I think Edniz did a great job and capturing my photos even if I didn’t suit this character. I will be posting more photos on my page in future.
I also can’t wait to cosplay Nonon from Kill la Kill next!
I will keep you updated, so stay tuned!
Love you and bye bye!

Reviews for LoveLive! Wonderful Rush Umi Sonoda Cosplay Costume Dress

tumblr_inline_nowo6bfjZg1swfxr3_500_副本
Hi guys! Long time, no see. I’ve been very, very busy recently with school and my part-time job. I just finally got the chance to write this up.
So I applied for sponsorship with Cosplay sky a month or so ago since I’ve been buying from them for quite a while and have been generally satisfied with the quality and service provided.
They’re very affordable for me, being a student who needs to save for the impending future, and are all worthwhile the price.
I was very glad when they accepted my application, and naturally, chose to go with Umi Sonoda’s Wonderful Rush cosplay, as it’s something I’ve been wanting for a while. So here’s my review!
Quality: 9/10
The overall quality of this cosplay is very, very good. It’s well-made, and the fabric of most of the cosplay is made out of polyester cotton, I believe? It’s my favourite fabric to have for cosplays because it doesn’t wrinkle too easily, sits well and doesn’t look yucky in photos.
My only critique is a few loose strings, but I suppose that is pretty normal for things that are made in bulk! I just worry for the buttons falling off, that’s all (but that isn’t the first time I’ve had a cosplay with loose buttons – it’s quite common, eheh;;). As always, Cosplay sky’s cosplay quality is commendable and I’m quite happy with what I received!
tumblr_inline_nowo3u5wlF1swfxr3_500
Accuracy: 9/10
Accuracy is always a difficult factor with cosplay that isn’t made by you. That’s the biggest struggle for me, because I’m practically useless with sewing things from scratch and using patterns.
9 times out of 10 will a cosplay not be 100% accurate when you order it off the internet – that’s my 10 cents worth today! However, Cosplay sky has some of the most accurate cosplays you can get.
I’ve ordered a Chiaki Nanami cosplay and Stylish Energy Rin cosplay from here before and been really happy with the level of accuracy for them, especially Chiaki’s, since there are so many on the internet you look at and just go, ‘…What?’
This cosplay was also pretty accurate. I only gave this a 9/10 – not because I’m stingy, no – but because the fabric they make the sash out of isn’t the best choice. The sash is originally a see-through fabric, however, they used satin, so it doesn’t really suit the outfit as well as it could. This is only a minor problem for me, though, because it isn’t difficult to get your hands on some fabric to make the sash on your own. It’s only minor – and I don’t think many people would mind this slight difference, anyway.
tumblr_inline_nowo4l1FW81swfxr3_500
Fit: 8/10
Let me make a point: don’t order a set size if you want your cosplay to fit you exactly. Get a custom size made if you’re really dead-set on it, because ordering one of the ‘free’ sizes means it may not fit as nicely as you want. Make sure you ALWAYS check your measurements before ordering, too!
For me, it’s really a hit or miss with fit. I struggle mostly with skirts (either they’re too big… or too small. Why is there no in between. Why). That was the only issue with fitting this cosplay. The skirt was really loose, so it was too low down and I’d have to roll it. I mean, that can easily be altered – and if you don’t mind that difference, just go for a set size as I do. That was the only issue I had with sizing for this.
Everything else fit pretty well, which is a relief. I know my body proportions are pretty dumb in comparison to the stereotypical, female shape, so I expected something to not fit me too well. Just be aware of that, guys!
tumblr_inline_nowo6bfjZg1swfxr3_500
Price: 10/10
This costume would usually cost £39.99. To be quite frank with you, most Wonderful Rush cosplays out there usually cost £50+ so this is a good deal. I think it’s worth it’s pricing, since it pretty much exceeds the standards for ‘cheaper’ cosplay, which is why I love Cosplay sky so much. I really do recommend those who can’t afford so much and are looking for a cosplay that isn’t a satin-icky-mess to buy from here, because it’s worthwhile. Personally, I find eBay too risky when it comes to purchasing cosplay; at least I know my products from Cosplay sky will arrive on time!!
Customer service: 10/10
The staff on Cosplay sky, in all my experiences, have always been friendly and informative. If you ever have any questions, or even complaints about their products, it’s always important to email them about it as I’m sure they’d be willing to help out. To be frank, the arrival of this cosplay caught me by surprise as it came quite early! I was told a longer time, however it came within two to three weeks of me applying. Most cosplay from Cosplay sky takes around 1-3 weeks (depending on how much, and whether it’s a wig or costume). Cosplay sky makes things on order so you usually have to wait a week or so for it to process. Shipping is usually fast and costs around $10 (from memory) when you order a cosplay, which is hardly anything when you’re making a large order. I like the price of the shipping because sometimes, things can just get too expensive when you have to pay the product price and like, $30-something along with it. 🙁
Cosplay sky’s customer service, from my experience, has been excellent!
Overall rating: 9.5/10
I hope this review was helpful in your decisions! Please make sure you go like Cosplay sky’s Facebook page, as they always have good deals and giveaways on.
Thank you for reading my review!
(Sorry for the gross photos, I broke out the night before and didn’t get the chance to reshoot. The cosplay isn’t complete, so I only took these photos to show the cosplay off! When it is complete, I’ll get better ones and replace the ones here c: )
