So, to follow up on my last post, I heard back from the costume supplier about a day after I sent in the “measurement photos” for their consideration.
I have been told that they will make and ship a replacement in the “correct size.”
No mention of the color of the pants, lol, even though I reminded them… twice.
So I will see if I’m fatter than I think whenever it gets here, if the new garments actually match their size chart.
But in the meantime, I have also found “real-world” options for pieces of the costume, should this first, tentative foray into more extensive costuming bite me in the ass through either lousy sizing (read: my fat butt), or shoddy craftsmanship.
Which would be completely sad. But: live and learn.
And geek on!
Stay tuned for updates.
