    Ouch. I guess that's the downside on buying clothes online sometimes huh?
    You know what, I think it's best for any tailor that are just within your neighborhood to let them do this work for you. At least that way you can check on their progress frequently.

    that's the disadvantage of buying your cosplay costume
    try to learn to make your own......... It will very hard on the start....but
    when you're already used to its procedure it will be fun...a lot more fun ^.^
    just a suggestion.....

    For your info, not everyone got the "time" or space to make a costume and I'm speaking from experience.
    And some materials are such as ASS to find here in Singapore as we are said to get mostly the "Leftovers" while shipping them in from overseas cost more than the material itself.

    What's the point of budgeting time when you dun have the space to lay the cloth on the floor and start cutting in the first place?
    Do it at the narrow Common Corridor or under the Block even when you're working with White Cloths?

    You might be able to find one locally where you live. Or are you looking to send it out to have the work done? Let us know.
