Hello! Has anyone in the UK bought this Sherlock coat: [URL="http://cosplaysky.co.uk/sherlock-holmes-cape-coat-cosplay-costume-wool-version-uk.html"]http://cosplaysky.co.uk/sherlock-holmes-cape-coat-cosplay-costume-wool-version-uk.html[/URL] from CosplaySky? What is it like? I've never bought from a cosplay site before, so I don't really know what to expect, and I can't find any reviews of it...
If you have bought it, can I see some pictures of it, and your general thoughts on it?

I've also been looking at this custom made one on amazon: [URL="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00AWLBGYG?keywords=sherlock cosplay coat&qid=1446056423&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1"]http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00AWLBGYG?keywords=sherlock cosplay coat&qid=1446056423&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1[/URL] as the reviews are good, but I can't quite make sense of it, since it says to buy from Janecosplay, but the only seller I have is Cosbeatles.

Your help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! :D

Speaking as a seamstress, both look really good actually! The one on Cosplay sky (to me) seems like it's the better of the two though. They clearly state that use wool and show that it's lined with a nice satin... So it's an actual cost you can wear out and not just a "costume" coat (i hope that made sence) it also looks to me that the cut of the coat is colder to the look of the original Sherlock coat. While I think the one on Amazon would still be a. Very good choce (I do TONS of shopping with Amazon and have always had great luck)... But it looks to be very "boxy" compared to the original. And the one on Amazon is a little more in price than on Cosplay sky.
That is my two cents... I've never bought from the cosplay sky so I don't know what you should expect really but it would be the one I would but for myself.

Thank you so much! I was leaning more towards the Cosplay Sky version anyway, so thank you for helping me make up my mind! :D
