Ruby Rose from RWBY
Volume 1 Dress
Costume: Get the costume here
Prize: about 97$ (costume and wig) ~ shipping was about 40$ to Germany
Delivery Time: the costume got shipped after 6 days - the shipping took about 2 weeks
Included were the dress, the cloak, a petticoat, corsage, plastic cartridges, a small bag and the weapon belt. I also got the wig from their shop.
Let's start with the wig. The wig is prestyled and has a long fringe. The wig has two colors (red and black) which fades perfectly and looks like Ruby's hair in the series. I recommend to restyle the wig a little to make it a look a little more cheeky.
The wig cap is black and big enough. In fact it could be little bit smaller for me but it's perfectly ok the way it is
The costume itself is made out of a thin cotton cloth. It's perfectly sewn together and really feels good. I never saw such a high qualilty cosplay. I really like it. Especially the the skirt is two layerd, which is high quality.
The red lace on the dress is very well soon and trimmed. I love how the cloth moves, especially the cloak. Tle cloak has to be fixed with safety pins to the dress which is a little bit tricky. So I replaced them with press buttons, which is way more comfortable.
It's a little bit sad that the weapon belt isn't long enough to wear it on the hips. You have to wear it on your waist which isn't the way Ruby wears it in the series but still is fine for me.
In comparison my measures: Bust 90cm, Waist 74cm, Hip 99cm. I'm about 165 cm tall.
You can get the fitting shoes and also Ruby's weapon at their shop as well. Especially her weapon looks so great!
The delivery time was fine also their processing time was pretty nice. The shipping itself took longer than the last time but still was fast enough for me. You can also get a lot of other RWBY cosplays and props. I'm impressed of the quality of the product and really can recommend this shop! Definetly one of the best cosplay shops so far!
