The costume I am writing about is the female costume.
he fantasy Buccaneer Pirate costume can be brought from the site www.flagshipfancydress.co.uk for £78.95. It is made by the well known brand Roma of Hollywood who make great quality costumes..
This costume comes in sizes:
For my birthday I decided on the theme fairytale for ages I was looking for a costume to buy. I looked across loads of sites and seen this one on www.Flagshipfancydress.co.uk. But there was no way I was going to pay 80 pound for a costume so I looked on Ebay and found the same one for £39.99. I was going to change the theme but people had already got there costumes so it was to late. But I thought I could get away with it as it was my birthday.
When the costume arrived I thought it looked great the pieces included were:
Pink lace dress with ruffles
Blue corset with pink laces
And the person off Ebay had put the matching boot cuffs in as well. Which if you were buying off the site would have cost £12 extra.
So for what should have been a £90 costume I should have been really happy. But when I went try it on I was a bit disappointed.
The hat wouldn't even fit on my head no matter how much I squeezed. It was also very big so if I had worn it to a club it probably would have been knocking into people. The quality of the hat was good though as it was made of the same satin material as the corset, had ribbon on to match the pink in the laces and the ribbon on the boot cuffs.
The actual lace dress was gorgeous but when I put it on it was so short it was like a top. I'm s size 12 and the costume was the m/l so should have just about fit me as m/l is 10-12 but there was no chance. I got someone I knew to try it on and she was a size 8 and it just about fitted her.
The corset yet again looked gorgeous it was a lovely blue satin material with laces at the front that you could loosen. We tried loosening the laces but in the end it looked awful as you couldn't see any of the corset at the front just the laces. So there was no way I could get it to fit.
There were no complaints about the eye patch and the sword.
The costume was good quality but there was no chance that I could wear it. I would say that the costume sizes are a lot smaller then what they say. This has stopped me buying Roma of Hollywood ones. As I would say most of there costumes are like this. I am sure the costume would look great on if it fitted. I would of said the m/l was more for a size 8-10 in my opinion.
5 piece Pirate costume includes: jacket, waistcoat, jabot, trousers, boot covers and a hat with feather.
