As someone who just made an OXIII coat and used the custom ginormous zipper, I'd have to say that LimeBarb made the right decision. The big ones are SO heavy that they pull down the front of the costume and make it a little saggy. It looks o.k., but doesn't have that nice CGI smoothness one strives for. I'm going to see if I can put some kind of reinforcement across the shoulders to keep it up a little better but if I ever make another one, I'm using a smaller zipper! Hope it's appropriate to post this. ^_^;
