So, we hit 5k followers over the weekend, which is pretty amazing. I wasn’t expecting it, so I didn’t have a special post planned, unfortunately.
But then my sister sent me an email. She had finally gotten Cosplayfly to send her a picture of the actual Kenway jacket they are making and selling on ebay using my photography as marketing material. So here they are, with my original photos, without background exclusion or touchups.
I leave the comparison up to you, I think the disparity in quality of material and craftsmanship is fairly clear, but I would like to draw attention to a few points in particular.
- In the top picture, the seams in the white fabric on the tails of Cosplayfly’s piece are clearly visible as being more white. This is a sign of a thin fabric which can be seen through.
- The difference of design in the shape of the blue waistband. This isn’t a question of quality, because it is a matter of opinion what the shape of the waistband should be, but the difference makes it clear that these cosplay sites are not using the official pattern, and therefore are using my photos not only illegally but also as false advertising.
- The hood.
Thanks for reading. Thank you all for your support, we love you all.
Pass it on.
EDIT: Changed images to clarify which is Volante-made and which is not.
