Mad Moxxi Cosplay Review UPDATED - Costume by CosplaySky

I'm a huge Borderlands nerd, we all know that. No news here. And I have a gazillion badass bitches from this game that I want to cosplay. Mad Moxxi is one of them. However, her costume is very detailed, has a lot of hand painted work and maaaany accessories so I just never took the time needed to make it. Also this is not really the costume type I usually wear and I was a bit worried that I wouldn't be able to pull her off.

Then one day everything changed when CosplaySky offered me a Moxxi cosplay, as part of a sponsorship deal. Heck yeah, I said! Let's do this!

NOTE: This is an updated review with extra notes on the wearability and comfort of the costume, scroll down to read it!

Here is the link to the cosplay I recieved; - Mad Moxxi Purple

You can also get her red outfit, but I think the purple one is prettier. If you order from CosplaySky you can either get a costume with premade measurements, or you can fill in your own measurements and have it all tailored to fit you exactly. That's what I did and the costume fit like a glove! It was a little big around the waist, but I believe that to be because I lost some weight since I filled in the measurements, and it was easily fixed!

The entire cosplay took about two weeks to make and one week (!) to be delievered. As you know I'm really picky about waiting for mail for a long period of time, haha, so I was super happy and surprised!

The parts included with the costume are as follows;
  • Coat
  • Hat
  • Gloves
  • Waist bag
  • Two belts
  • Striped stocking

Said and done, I threw together a quick test (with a substitute wig and no shoe covers) and I absolutely love it! I never thought I was gonna be able to pull this cosplay off, but I think I can actually do this!!

The entire coat is fully lined and everything from the fabric, seams and lining to the buttons, prints and details are just perfect and so carefully attached. No hot-glue buttons here! Even the hat is lined, which is a big deal for me haha <3 They even added Moxxi's off button which is larger than the others, and they look great together.

Something else that I really love is that all the decorations, swirls, patches and logos are actually printed onto the fabric! It looks very realistic and professional.

The belts, gloves and bag are all made out of pleather and are attached with velcro. The striped sock is made out of knitted fabric and stretches up top.

Although there are several buttons visible on the costume, the entire coat opens and closes with invisible snap-buttons. This is nice because the outside buttons never lose their shape and symmetry, and the snap buttons works perfectly fine on their own!

Time for some ratings!
  • Comfort: 4/5 
  • Size: 5/5
  • Accuracy to original: 5/5
  • Movability: 3/5
  • Quality: 5/5

After wearing this cosplay for an entire photoshoot, I can add some text about comfort!
The costume itself is very easy to move in - the stockings are a good quality that doesn't slide down, which is something that usually bothers me haha <3 I also like the fact that the hat was very lightweight, making it easy for me to pin it onto my wig, and even though it was very windy outside the hat stayed put during the entire shoot!

The coat is very comfortable to wear and has a really nice fit due to it being tailored to fit me. The gloves are made in stretch fabric and I'd think they would fit most hands! Belts also comes with long straps of velcro, making it easy to adjust them depending in your size. I love the small details like the chest-part of the coat being big enough to allow me to use a push up bra hahaha <3

The only thing uncomfortable with the costume are the ridicilously high heels, haha!

All in all I'm super satisfied with my cosplay <3 It looks exactly as the original Moxxi costume from the game does, all the details are included and the quality is amazing. I really recommend CosplaySky if you ever want to order a costume yourself!!

I've made a video review of the cosplay as well, check it out down below!
