Need URGENT help with part of my costume
Does anybody know of any UK based Tailors that could help me make the trousers for my Cosplay outfit bigger?

Weird request but when I ordered the pants, I gave them the wrong measurements (Because i'm an idiot and self conscious about my size).

Anyway, i'm mainly looking for a Cosplay Tailor who I can send my trousers too, give the measurements that I actually am and then have them send back quick and easy?


Again, URGENT!

That may be a problem because it's easier to take in a garment that is too big than to add it on. So you can take fabric off but you can't magic it back on unless you have extra fabric available to make a new panel.

Where is it tight exactly? around the waist or elsewhere? Do you actually have spare fabric or did they do everything from sourcing the fabric to making it? If not you may have just wasted money on those pants...

Was it an independent commissioner or something from ebay? you could have a word with them and let them know you're having problems?

I ordered it from CosplaySky. You send in your measurements and they make it. It's tight around my thighs and waist. Literally have to properly shuffle to get into them and I can't even do them up all the way round the waist and the jacket is meant to go inside the trousers too! All I can really thick of is they take a bit of the fabric from the bottom of the trousers as they will be tucked away inside the boots anyway.

Btw, my suit is a Captain America suit.

Like a stretchy one-peice suit? Might be tricky to do.

Do CosplaySky have a replace/refund policy? Some of the online comissioning factories bend over backwards to make alterations so it doesn't affect their feedback/reputation (and therefore their sales XD).

They probably do but they're based in China and it took a month for it to arrive. No it's a separate jacket to trousers.

Another thing too is that if i lean forward or lift my arms up, the jacket rides up and is a pain to put back down again inside trousers (i tried some different style ones to see what it looked like tucked in) so is there a way of stopping that from happening?

as Angel Tear pointed out it's doable to take in a pair of trousers that are too big, but there's not much of anything that can be done with making trousers bigger.

Can you take a photo and do you know what material it is.

The issue with taking something out is that you have to match material.
