Review : Buying from Wish an Asuka Plugsuit

Everyone’s seen Wish advertised on Facebook and similar sites. They’re very cheap, but a lot of people are hesitant to buy without knowing what the quality is like.
Thankfully, I am not one of those people and I decided to throw my £17.14 (+£10 shipping) into the void and see what came back.

This was the advert for the plug suit I decided to go for:

As a plus-size Cosplayer in both build and height, I have to pay close attention to the size charts of anything I’m going to order unless it is custom sized. Here’s the size chart that accompanied the advert:

Given I won’t be binding for Asuka, I followed the women’s size chart. I am 6’ (183cm) tall, so I instantly bought the biggest size to ensure it would fit. I checked the other measurements which were all within range and, given this is made of a highly stretching material, I thought would fit me well.
Made my order on September the 7th, 2019, my order was shipped on September 11th, 2019 and arrived on September the 20th, 2019. Not bad for a stab in the dark!

Now, the big questions. Quality and fit.

As I said before, I’m 6’ tall and I am plus-size, wearing a 14-16 in ladies clothing sizes, so I was dubious when I pulled this bad boy out of its little bag.

This is what it looks like on my mannequin!

So I will start with the bad, because then you know it gets better, right?

Bad things:

Now, I’m no master seamstress, but damn those are some messy butt seams. The thread is visible all over the suit, especially when stretched. It doesn’t bother me that much, but it could be annoying if you intend on using the suit repeatedly or for professional shoots. In an ideal world, I would unpick all the seams and redo them, but we will have to see how time goes!

The zip fits well and functions well, but my word is that slider hard to do up on your own. It is so tiny, and when you have Lycra on your hands? It’s next to impossible! So if you intend on wearing this alone… I hope you’re very bendy.

And now, the good!

It fits VERY nicely. The sizing is exactly as described in the table, the stretch is perfect in all directions and I had a full range of motion all over, no bunching or pinching. 
It looks amazing on, really –  I rarely cosplay female characters but felt so confident in this, I’m actually going to wear it to a con.
It also arrived in 13 days from order to my doorstep – perfect for a quick emergency cosplay for a con.
So overall, my thoughts?
I have actually recommended this suit to my friends! Given it is less than £20, it’s an instant cosplay that would definitely work for a con. I will be adding a bigger zip for ease of changing, and hidden zippers in the wrists so I can use my phone, but other than that? It’s con ready.
If you’re considering buying from Wish, my advice is:

  • Check the size charts carefully
  • Check for reviews, good OR bad
  • Pay with PayPal, to give you buyers protection in case anything goes wrong

I hope my little review is helpful! Enjoy your shopping!

Cosplayer : jerrmeehanjr I’ve been going to comic con off and on for 10 years, even before The Walking Dead premiered on TV and you didn’t have to worry about it selling out the entire weekend. In all that time I have never actually cosplayed as anything when I went. One time I wore a Boba Fett helmet with a nice sweater but that doesn’t count.  This year I went to comic con as myself. I make cartoons on YouTube and my character is based on me! I created a mask by printing out my cartoon face and gluing it to corrugated plastic. I then used an exacto knife to cut out the mask and painted in the hair, eyes, and tongue. I got velcro straps that I glued and taped down to the back and cut little eye holes out to see.  As far as my experience goes cosplaying as my OC it was a lot of fun. I was nervous at first taking the train in, I’m not entirely sure why but it probably was me worrying about having diarrhea as usual. Once we got in I put the mask on and started handing out stickers. My wife came with me and it was her first comic con so I wanted her to be able to experience everything while we were there. I went on Thursday this year, which was packed! The only negative experience I had was I cut the holes to see out of too small so I had to shuffle everywhere while my wife guided me. Luckily I didn’t trip over anyone but I did hit a few people in the head. Sorry.  I had a lot of good reactions to my cosplay and was even noticed by 2 people which was crazy. That was my first time being noticed! It was funny because I couldn’t see anyone out of my mask and heard someone ask my wife “is that the guy from tik tok?” And she was like uh yes? And they asked to take a photo with me. Then while that was happening another person recognized me too and wanted a photo as well. It was a great feeling because I’m trying to grow my channel and to be spotted even by 1 person out of the packed comic con was cool. I handed out all my stickers and finally took my mask off to enjoy the rest of the day. It definitely made me appreciate cosplayers even more than I already did!  Disclaimer: All images and videos used, do not belong to FnC and belong to their respective owners.

Jollibee from Jollibee (fast food restaurant) /Cosplayer : ADRI.NYAN / Photo:@climacam People kept asking if there was real food in the bucket/peach mango pie container! I told them “No, don’t you think it’d be soggy by now?” I feel like as a Filipino it’s a little bit sacrilegious to eat soggy Jollibee. It’s best to eat it as fresh as possible. Other reactions I got were hilarious, but I especially liked hearing “I have to show my mom/family”. I think seeing Filipinos thrive and enjoy the representation in this silly costume I did is inspiring for me. If anybody reading this hasn’t yet, please try out Jollibee if you’re close to one. If not the chicken then at least the peach mango pie. It’s delightful. I actually found a video from a doll makeover YouTuber named Hextian, who is also Filipino. He made a Jollibee doll and I actually said to my friends I wanted to cosplay her. That was around 2019. I’ve been ruminating on the idea for three and a half years. But at the time, I was still in college with no money and no means of creating something like that. Flash forward to 2022, when planning for Katsucon 2023, I was thinking about what to do in terms of a cosplay for Katsucon. That’s when I said, “Okay, Jollibee cosplays are really rare, especially SEXY Jollibee, why don’t I just try doing it?” My older cousins got me into anime and they used to go to Otakon back in the day. I remember begging my mom to let me go and eventually I was allowed to in 2012. That’s when my oldest kuya (male cousin in Tagalog) asked me “Who will you be cosplaying?” And I said, “Oh, is it required?” He said, “No, but it’s a lot of fun. You should try it out.” So I debated and finally caved in after looking at so many pictures online. I was 14 years old when I got my dad to buy my first cosplay as a birthday gift and it was Maka from Soul Eater. I was hooked since then!
