Hello. I live in Alexandria, VA. I'd like to comission someone to alter or redo my Bible Black uniform for Otakon 06. I wasn't pleased with it. The skirt didn't fit so I had to sew on some velcrow. Even then it was majorly loose. The yellow hem glued on by stich witch made the skirt stiff. In addition, the pleading was off. As for the vest, it didn't stay closed. I had to add fastners and even then, it didn't look right. The straps were also falling off my shoulders. I fixed that with dress tape. As for the shirt, the only problem was the sleeve cuffs. The person who made them didn't intend for them to close so they were flapping open. It didn't look right so I had to use more fastners for them. If you can save this costume, go for it. If you have to make it over from scratch, go ahead. Let me know how much it's going to be and we can work something out. Thanks

Here's some shots of the costume.

I can maybe refer you to my seamstress. She can probably alter what you have now and save you a bit of money. I'll have her send you an email.
