Ok guys, here is the update on the Deckard cosplay build.

Today I got my Skin Job Holster, and it's very nice. I've yet to wet-fourm it, but already it looks super cool. Big thanks to Karl for putting so much love into these.





Also picked up the Magnoli Clothiers tie. Quality on this is very good, it looks great, and could totally be worn out on a date night under normal circumstances and look very sharp. Only oddity is that the Magnoli Clothiers logo goes long ways, so you can't tuck the excess tie in the back, both parts of the tie just flap around on your chest. Minor gripe though.







Ordered extra buttons from costume141 for the collar of my coat, and had a taylor take it up about 6 inches so it's the proper length



Finally, the costumebase button-up is where things have gone bad. The $50 costumebase shirt is pretty uncomfortable, the fabric is scratchy, and I get the impression that the screen print will come off in the wash. The fit is also pretty awkward (I got the medium). It's big in the chest and upper arm, but the wrist are very tight, so tight in-fact that I can't even wear a wrist watch with it. The stitching on the chest, back, and collar is pretty nice though.







All of that I was ok with, until literally while i was posting this review, I noticed the costumebase shirt has a big blotch on the front where the pattern was seemingly rubbed off, and someone at the factory tried to stitch the patter back in. At first I didn't notice it because the pattern is so busy, but once you see it. it's totally obvious. for a $50 shirt, the quality control here is disappointing. I emailed costumebase today, and if they don't make this right, they're going to find a very angry replicant on their hands.





So i'm pretty close to being complete. Just gotta find some brown/grey tweed pants, a rust blazer, and a pick up some Adidas.
