I didn’t think it would happen, but it did. On November 8th, 2017, I ordered a Mighty Morphin Red Ranger cosplay suit (both the “Armored” version and the regular) from Aniki Cosplay. After 5 years of broken promises and being ghosted on multiple platforms, I was rightfully upset and made a video sharing my experience: A few months go by and out of the blue with no prior contact, I get an email stating my suit is ready. And so miraculously, on December 28th, 2022, I received my suit.
First impressions of the suit are in this video, and to summarize… it looks amazing. And surprisingly, it all still fit, which I was worried about after 5 years. Only big immediate downsides are the incredibly poor visibility from the helmet and that I can’t properly attach the velcro on the back of the dragon shield by myself. Plus, I wanted to sometimes wear the cosplay as just the regular MMPR Red but there’s a velcro piece on the front of the suit for the dragon shield. It is white so it somewhat blends in, but also can be pretty noticeable which is a bummer.
Overall, while the quality of the suit is fantastic, I cannot recommend Aniki Cosplay due to the 5 year long wait that I had. That is just unacceptable and there is no excuse for that. I hear they supposedly fulfill their new Etsy orders on time, but I don’t personally have any experience with that and so I urge people to proceed with caution. Leaving all of their earlier customers in the dust is not good business practice, and I can’t in good faith recommend them.
